Now these layers are very different from the layers you see here in…the Tool palette.…If I have a 3D object selected as my tool, you will see layers appear here as a…sub-palette. These are the 3D layers and they are used to organize details…while you are sculpting. They are a completely different animal than the…document layers. It's a little bit confusing because they have the same name…but if you remember to refer to these as document layers and refer to these as…3D layers, that can help you keep them separate in your mind as you are working.…
