You have several options:

  • Extend – extends lines until they intersect
  • Fillet – extends lines and connects them with a circle of radius
  • Bezier – extends the lines and connects them with the Bezier curve

Add 3D effects to 2D illustrations by adding or editing thick and thin lines. You can also use this technique with ellipses and parallelograms on the isometric grid. Check out new line editing capabilities by clicking the image.

New objects – Arrow and Animated Arrow – are available in the Object Gallery. Use these objects to draw end-user attention to a specific area in the 3D scene. The basic arrow is captured when you generate a 2D illustration.
