You can declutter your design space with the Items manager in Shapr3D to get a better overview on what’s in your work. Open the Items manager by selecting at the bottom of the screen, and select items in the panel to immediately select the related shapes in your design.
Every body, group of sketches, plane, axis, and image you create in your project is defined as an item, searchable in this panel. Any 2D drawings you've created are also stored here, in the Drawings section. If you create new 3D bodies with one of the Boolean tools (Subtract, Intersect, Union), those new items are named after the original bodies’ names.
Notice that each item type is indicated by these icons:
Note: Sketches are automatically organized by the planes they are drawn on. So each sketch item can include multiple sketches from the same plane. You can combine multiple sketch items into one folder.
Plane and axis
In the Drawings section, all 2D drawings you create are stored.
