Hi Albert,

Hi all,

I've never used Draw up to now, but I got a task and thought I could do
it with that. I am reading and viewing tutorials but did not find the
method for the following: how to overlap, combine, or be it called
something else, two objects.

I mean for example: how can I draw a tube that is pushed into a ring.

That would be possible in 3D and Draw is able to have true 3D objects. But the UI is so bad, that I do not recommend it for beginners in Draw.

You will likely need to make a "fake" 2D drawing.

Ok, I could do it by drawing two tubes, one is above, the other is below
the ring, but can it be done in a simpler and cleverer way?

I would draw one tube and do not use a closed ring, but an open one, which touches the tube at its open part and lays in front of the tube at the opposite side.

Of cause you can build union, combination, or group of objects. But it will not be possible, that one part of an object is in front and one part is behind another object in 2D.

Kind regards
