i'm starting to learn 3d modeling but i can't draw objects in side views. for example: i drew a circle on the top view and i want again to draw circle on the front view but it won't, its face is still on top view. i try to rotate it but still not working.

what shall i do??? :confused:

arnoldwanya,

Yes the 1st steps are not easy.
Most important advice: Be sure, that you know where you are...http://www.crazymaze.de/smili/midi/glotz.gif

To your question: You have to rotate the view(ucs) -> _view -> front -> draw the second circle. http://www.cadtutor.net/tutorials/autocad/ucs.php
