Introduction

3DTin is a browser based 3D modelling tool, that provides a simple user interface to create 3D designs. Users can create 3D objects by putting together cubes of different colors.

The goal of 3DTin is to provide as intuitive user interface as possible for the task of 3D modelling. So the obvious question is, why should it need a "User's Guide"? Good question. The simplicity of 3DTin is aimed at getting user started as easily as possible. The toolbars and cursor cues make sure that adding, removing cubes come as obvious actions when the user first visits the app. More features unveil subsequently. But there are some advanced tips and techniques that are not apparent readily. This guide is to document those not-so-obvious features.
