Today with Pete we made a cube in 3D space. To do this I created layers that were squares and used the Anchor point to move it around. The Anchor point is the little circle in the middle of the X,Y and Z axis. The Pan Behind Tool allowed me to move the Anchor point around, so that I could fit it in a new position.
I then used the snapping tool which almost forced the vertexes of the squares together. To make it a full object, I created a null and then I created another null to move the cube. Lastly I added lighting to illuminate the cube, in a specific way I want it.
