The properties dialog box has a central location for viewing and allowing modification of graphical and physical properties of an object the user wants to draw or those selected within the area to be drawn. A list of critical settings is found in the properties dialog box, including 3D Visualization, Geometry, and general under, such as color, plot style, layer, transparency, and hyperlink (Autodesk, Inc. 115). Users can adjust the properties of objects applying these features, modify or even create what they want. Once the object is chosen, the color changes, and all the objects subsequently created are assigned the color property.
