    Tips & Tricks (7)-3

    In order to see through an object, beginners will often change the object from a solid (S) to a hole (H). While this effectively makes the object look transparent, it can lead to accidental gaps in your design.

    A better way to make a see-through (yet solid) object is use the transparency command (T), which can also be found as a checkbox in the color menu. Not only is it a useful way to quickly see into or through an object while you're designing, it’s also a perfect way to create designs that look like glass or water.
