Drop the objects to layers
You can drop the geometry to the layer by grabbing and dropping it in the layer once it highlights green.
When locked you can add but you won’t be able to delete, move or edit the geometry on the layer. A message will pop up to warn you.
To delete layers grab the layers and press delete button on your drawing hand controller, just like with normal geometry.
When deleting the layer the geometry that is part of that layer will be deleted from the scene permanently and you won’t be able to retrieve it.
To rename the layer click on the layer and the keyboard will pop up. Type in the name and select the blue check mark.
Navigate through the layers in two ways:
- Point and use the trigger
- Push up and down on your joystick on the non-drawing hand controller
You can see which object in your sketch belongs to which layer. Hover over any layer to highlight the object in red, orange or purple, depending on whether they are solo, mirrored or grouped objects.
If you intersect objects numbers in blue will indicate which layers the objects are on and how many of the intersected objects are in each of the layers.
