Starting designing a product, you always know its dimensions: width, height and depth. Surely enter values of these parameters having pressed the button which is on the left panel. It will help you when designing. First you will trace product dimensions, and secondly the sizes of panels which you will place, will undertake at once according to the set parameters. Width, height and depth of a product are set in millimeters. The step of a grid can be not set. If set, in a dimensional frame the grid which knots can be used for positioning of a marker will be drawn.

Set width = 400 mm, height of =600 mm, depth = 400 mm and press the Execute button.
