One of the most important tools for controlling the view of your model is Render mode. In render mode, all 3D objects are displayed as shaded, or without hidden lines. Higher level rendering also enables you to view materials and textures, showing a realistic view of what your model will actually look like. And in order to create a realistic rendered view, light effects must be added.
To further enhance your render, you can assign materials and luminance qualities to objects. You can also create a render scene environment, which affects the background and foreground of your model.
