- [Instructor] There are two main techniques … for creating 3D geometry in AutoCAD for Mac. … You can use 3D basic solids, also called solid primitives … and then modify them by joining and subtracting them … from each other, or you can create 2D geometry … and then convert it to 3D by extruding or revolving it. … We're going to start with some basic 3D shapes … which we can find on the modeling panel … of the drafting tool sets. … Here we have all of the solid primitives. … I'll start with box, which is just like drawing … a rectangle and then adding a third dimension. … I'm going to change my view here using the View Cube … and we can see the box that I've created. … I'll do the same thing for a cylinder … which is just like drawing a circle … and again giving it that third dimension. … If I switch to conceptual, we can see … exactly what these models look like. … Another option for creating 3D objects … is to take a 2D object like this profile here … and either extruding or revolving it. …
