The Pick tool

The Pick tool lets you select a plane you've defined and add extrusions or define the scale of a particular line.
Once you select this tool, you remain in Pick mode until you click a non-defined area (or the area outside the image).
To create an extrusion
  1. Click the Pick tool .
  2. Click a defined plane to select it.
  3. Click the Add tool .
  4. Use the [Add] tool to build an object perpendicular to the selected plane.
  5. Hold down the Alt key and drag the selected plane to see the extrusions in 3D. To define scale
  6. Click the Pick tool .
  7. Click a line segment within a defined plane to select it.
    The line segment thickens and turns red when the cursor is over it.
  8. Define the length of real-life version of this segment (in inches) by typing a value in the Selected Length field and clicking Reset .
    For example, if the segment represents a wall, type 96 to indicate that the wall is eight feet (or 96 inches) tall. If you are not sure of the real-life size of the objects in your photo, use a kitchen counter height (almost always 36 inches) or a wall (almost always 96 inches).
