If I understand what you're after, then do this....
How do I get the surface toolbar on my workspace, It`s not there when I right click on the toolbars.
Thanks for reply. That`s the idea but the SURFACES toolbar isn`t there.
Maybe you should go to your CUI and find where the SURFACES toolbar is (may require a bit of searching in the CUI), then move it to the Toolbars under the Customisation in ALL CUI Files area of the CUI.
Then go back and do as I suggested above.
There is no "Surfaces" toolbar anymore. You can still access the tools from the "Draw" menu > Modeling > Meshes.
Or you can create your own "Surfaces" toolbar. The tools are listed in the "Command List" window of the CUI as "Modeling, Meshes".
The Surfacing tools are pretty much obsolete now though.

The old surfaces commands in AutoCAD are obsolete - don't use them.
Now you create surfaces with the same tools you use to create solids. The difference is you start with an open profile rather than the closed profile you would use for solids.
The new surfaces are much more powerful - see the tutorials in my signature.
Alan, have you had any training in 3D?
Hell no...I'm civil. Only 2D here.
Very good, JD.
I can tell you it wasn't one of our abos.
But I have looked through enough stereoscopes at enough aerial photographs over the years to know that there are actually mountains out there.

Thanks guys, I tried to make a Surfaces toolbar and drag in 3D face. Appears I was doing it under customise instead of customise/interface, have managed it now though. Am using 3D face etc cos that`s what we`re using in college. Will have to look through JD`s tutorials on the alternatives. Thanks for help again.
