 However; one always first creates a shape in //plan// on some reference plane (often the ground itself) and then extrude that shape later to get the **3D volume** you want. In TAD 2D and 3D shapes co-exist. Of course, when you invoke the 3D Draft view command, only the 3D volumes would be visible. However; one always first creates a shape in //plan// on some reference plane (often the ground itself) and then extrude that shape later to get the **3D volume** you want.

 +**Shapes from the web**\\
 +From version 6.7.7.0 onwards, TAD now has the capability to import all kinds of shapes from the system clipboard. Once you invoke the //​creation//​ floating dialog; you would see a largish //TAD Shapes// button. Click on that, and the browser on your computer would open to a website where you can sketch out TAD shapes
 +
 +In future; more such websites would crop up at multiple locations. You can list out those URLs in a text file called tadshapeurls.txt It is in the same folder where you installed the main executable of TAD. Simply add to that list, as you find more websites that can yield TAD Shapes. We have created one here [[https://​tad.in.net/​goodies/​tadsketcher0.5.html]] ​
 +
 +The instructions for using that [[tadsketcher|TAD Sketcher]] is available. Other developers can make similar utilities and you can use them to create shapes and insert those shapes into TAD
