3D Boxes

The Box Tool allows you to draw three-dimensional boxes that remain editable in Inkscape but display normally in other SVG renderers. A box is composed of an SVG Group of six paths. Information about the vanishing points, and so forth are stored in the Inkscape Name Space. This extra information is only used by the Box Tool. All other tools treat the box as a normal Group. The sides of the box can be styled independently (or even deleted).

To draw a 3D box select the Box Tool by clicking on the icon (Shift+F4) in the Tool Box. Use a Left Mouse Drag to draw the left side of the box (in the x-y plane). The start of the drag sets one corner while the end of the drag sets the opposite corner. The other sides of the box are automatically drawn with the right side of the box set to a default width. Pressing the Shift while creating the box changes the function of the cursor to defining the depth (width of the right side or z dimension) of the box.
