The 2D to 3D interface of Doodle3D

To get started, let's try out the most important tools of the Transform interface:

1.

Explore the use of various tools, like the Freehand tool and start drawing your shapes in the left 2D panel. 

2.

By using the Select tool you can move and scale shapes.

3.

When you have shapes selected you will see two buttons appear in the centre between the 2 panels: duplicate and delete.

4.

The Duplicate tool that duplicates any shape(s) you have selected when you click on it.

5.

The Delete button that deletes any shape(s) you have selected when you click on it.

6.

The main tool in the 3D panel is the Extrude tool. This tool allows you to scale a shape on the z-axis and move it along the z-axis.

7.

Feel free to experiment and tinker with the tools in the interface. You can always use the Undo button to go back one or more steps

8.

Use the New Doodle button in the left hamburger menu to start a new design.

9.

Do not forget to  Save your design before you close your browser!
