Start a new project
- On the Home tab, clickNew
Your new project opens and you will see:
Two scene views: Structure 3D and St. Base (Base) 2D
A tabbed Project Workspace
- Click the Structure tab under the Project Workspace
A Structure tree is displayed in the Project Workspace.
- In the Structure tree, click Structure
The Properties window displays the Structure properties.
- In the Structure tree, click Levels
The Properties window changes to display Levels properties - at this point there is only only level in the model.Note: The units in which the levels are displayed, (along with other settings), have been copied into the model from the settings set that was active when the project was started. These are known as 'model settings'. Model settings apply to the current project only and can be edited to suit the model as required.Note: Once familiar with the program, some users might prefer to set up a template to use as the basis for new projects - particularly when there is a lot of commonality between projects.
What to do next:
Check or change model settings in your project (see below).
Try setting out some grid lines in the St. Base (Base) 2D view.
Next, double-click Levels in the Structure tree to create some levels.
With grids in place and levels established, you can then open views of the other levels.
- You are now ready to begin creating the model.
