Material&Component tool was called Construction in Advanced tool previously. It is where you can model some complicated elements such as slope roof, create a ceiling template, add light stripes, as well as free-modeling.

  • Face Editor

    Face Editor is essentially a series of editing and ‘paving’ on the surface. Functionally, it can divide the area, parametric paving, tiling, free paving, and making boundaries and waistlines, so it is the best choice for you to draw decorative wall panels, ceilings, and floorings. See more:
