Creating boxes

You can create a rectangular box, or cube. A box consists of six rectangular surface planes. The base of the box is always parallel to the xy plane of the current UCS. You position the box by specifying either a corner or the center of the box. You determine the size of the box by either specifying a second corner and the height; defining the box to be a cube and then providing its length; or specifying the length, width, and height.


NOTE The box is created as a three-dimensional ACIS solid.


To create a box

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Box.
    • On the Solids toolbar, click the Box tool ().
    • Type box and then press Enter.
  2. Specify the first corner of the base.
  3. Specify the opposite corner of the base.
  4. Specify the height.

 

First corner of the base (A), the opposite corner of the base (B), and the height (C).

To create a box as a three-dimensional surface

To create a box as a surface instead of as a solid, the procedure is similar.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • On the Draw 3D toolbar, click the Box tool ().
    • Type ai_box and then press Enter.
  2. Specify the first corner of the base.
  3. Specify the opposite corner of the base.
  4. Specify the height.
