Hello everyone,

I'm a non-professional user of TC18 and use it for creating 3D objects to print on my 3D printer. I have always used the standard interface for drawing i.e. icons with the different tools. I remember when I first set up TC there was an option to select the ribbon interface. However, I was not interested in using the ribbon interface at the time but would now like to try it. I have looked in the forum and found that it can be changed under options. I have been unsuccessful in finding where to change it. Can someone tell me how to change the this interface?

There is always an option :)
Try look for it under
Tools/ Customize >> Options >> in the line below Load from, select Ribbon and then click on the Load From button.
Or just move the cursor some free place outside the drawing area and rigthclick mouse, then the Customize should open.

The "standard" interface changes from year to year.   :P

Another way of getting to the popup is to position the cursor outside the drawing area and over an empty area where there are no icons.
1. Right-click and the Customize popup menu will appear.
2. Click the Options tab near the top left.
3. Click the inverted triangle under the Load From: and click on Ribbon in the drop-down menu.
4. Click the Load From: button.
5. Click Close.
