Using the Line tool for 3D drawing

So now we understand the basics of the Pencil tool and we can actually draw 2D and 3D objects with it, but let me show you some more things that you can do. I am going to start with this box. Once we have a simple box here, we can still continue with our Pencil tool. We can actually draw additional details onto surfaces. So for example, in addition to just snapping to places in space, we can actually snap to faces and edges. If you notice here, if I move that Pencil tool long we have an end point, we have the mid-point which is the halfway point between these two ends of this edge, and we also have another end point.

So if I want to, I could snap to this mid -point and just draw a line along here. If I wanted to, I could just draw one here from mid-point-to-mid-point. What I've got now is I've got two faces. If I hit my Spacebar, you see I have actually divided this into two separate faces, if I delete one of those faces, you can see I can create a hole in that box, or I can ju...
