Hello to All.
Recently i was told by an arm chair expert that i should start with 3D right away, when using my newly installed TC Pro - v16. Do you agree?

I would agree, although you will undoubtedly use 2D as part of your 3D development. Draw you cabinet(s) once in 3D and you can create innumerable views and create all your shop drawings from the 3D components with the use of viewports. Once you get the hang of drawing in 3D you will never go back to a drafting table mode of thinking and you will wonder why anyone still does.

Well, I would probably help to get to know your 2D tools first, as many of those will be used to create/edit your forthcoming 3D objects.
