This gives me access to all of the 3D modeling tools. The drawing I have is of a screwdriver. All of this geometry was created using 3D solids, and before I go any further, I'm going to move up to the View panel, we'll open up the Visual Styles menu, and I'm going to select X-ray.

This gives me a much better view of all of my geometry. Since these entities are solids, I am going to be using the solid editing tools.
