My employer gave me a Turbocad 12 course yesterday for 2d and 3d so that I would be able to do some enclosure design work. Everything has been smooth sailing until I came across something in 3d which I could not figure out.
In the video, the instructor creates a 3d box which has it's large face in parallel to, but -5" in the y-axis from, the workplane. From the frontview (left), he selects 'Plane by active view', then uses vertex snap to draw the base of a cone on the top left corner of the box. He then types in the base diameter and height of the cone, and when he pushes enter, the cone moves from being connected to the corner of the box to the same position x and z position on the workplane. I cannot recreate this 'automatic move' action, leaving my cones attatched to the corners of the box. I've been spending a tonne of time that I don't have trying to figure this out. Does anyone have any advice for me? I'm sure it's a setting somewhere that I can't figure out.
ps - I got some points to move from the box to the plane when I vertex snapped to the corner it. No 3d objects though.
