The Layers Tab

Introduction

The Layers tab of the Layer-UCS-Post Manager is used to create and maintain CAD layers. The default CAD layer is always visible in the Layers tab, and it can't be deleted. When you create geometry, it is automatically placed on the default layer. When you create multiple layers, the geometry is placed on the active layer.

 

The purpose of the Layers tab is to provide the ability to create multiple layers. You can then create geometry in each layer as a way to keep your drawings organized. The layers can be hidden to only show certain entities of a drawing, or you can place different versions of the same part on separate layers. To create or modify layers, you right-click in the Layers window to access a shortcut menu.

There are also a few visual aids that are used to show the current state of the layers.
