Day One: Composition

The first thing we do for relocating objects is arranging the levels of the table with the other objects use in the design. This could be done for example by selecting the move tool and then right-clicking the mouse button then we see the Move Transform window appear on the screen from which we can automatically rearrange the position of the objects on the screen. More precise relocation can be done by double clicking the move tool, the arrow cross on the top of the screen, and entering values into the spaces of the appearing window.

Each of the shapes on the surface has its own coordinates along three axes X, Y and Z. Shift along the coordinate line x happens by changing the values of coordinates. This is done by altering the Y Value as seen on the picture below.

Lets move to the box and cone. Basically the procedure is the same as for the sphere. With the difference for the box we specify length, width, height. For the cone it will be two radiuses, meaning that it could be a truncated cone, as well and height.

Now when we have already three objects sphere box and a cone we might as well align them. All objects should be on the same surface, therefore we have to move our objects so that they will be on the same level.

This can be altered from either XZ or YZ planes.

In the modeling part we are adding simple figures. To start with lets take sphere model it in 3d then.

We may now look at more complicated objects in the design in the 3d space. There is namely the surface of the table to appear as the base underneath our created shapes.
