I've been using this software for the past two weeks and am having problems with the 3D options. I'm not able to render, slice, array, rotate, extrude not unite objects in 3D but was using 2009 lite and it had all those options. What can I do to have such options installed to my Pc as I need them more and as for my company they think I must change back to 2009 and since they bought me 2013 I am starting to enjoy it and is a bit faster as the short cuts are desplayed @ all times.

Are you using AutoCAD 2012, or AutoCAD LT 2012?

Do you have a 3D Basics or 3D Modeling Workspace you can change to? Just type WORKSPACE and find out.

Provide a full screenshot of the maximized 2012 program window you have over there too.

Everyone knows that lite doesn't have what you claim OOTB. In fact, programs that fiddle with LT to make it do that would be a violation of your EULA.


That said (and having used up my daily allotment of acronyms), click on your Workspaces and first make sure it is set to save your current workspace. Then notice there are two 3D workspaces available -- a simplified one and an expert one. You should be able to find these tools in one of those :smileyhappy:

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:
