- In this video, we'll explore the tools available…for navigating in our work space.…To get started, let's add an object to our work plane…so that we have something to look at.…Now I wanna add a geometric box.…This box here on the shortcut menu…is the shortcut to the geometric shapes.…Now to add an object to our work plane,…I'll click on this box, drag it to the work plane,…and then simply let go.…On the left-hand side over here,…we have our view controls.…You can click on these arrows to look around the object,…even go down to look underneath, and up to look on top.…
It can also zoom in by clicking on the plus sign,…or zoom out by clicking on the minus sign.…Now our box is currently selected.…And you can tell that because of this blue halo…that surrounds the object.…To deselect it, I can click anywhere on the work plane.…And then to select it again, with the left mouse button,…click on that object.…When we have selected objects in Tinkercad,…we have another option in our view controls,…and that is the fit view to selection.…
