1: INTERFACE

There are many different environments that you can adopt when creating renders in AutoCAD. The 3D modelling environment is the default for rendering with a tab’s interface.

As has been introduced in the drawing and modelling sections, you could opt for the Classic interface and use the right-click functionality to open the very same toolbars. Either interface is fine, they both do the same job. But the AutoCAD Classic interface, along with some simple keyboard shortcuts, is a failsafe interface. When rendering you will use only two of the tab sections, Render and View.
