The Home screen welcomes you when you launch Substance 3D Designer. It is here to help you start working with the software and access most useful links.

The Welcome dialog has three sections: the News section, the Learn section, the Create section. You can select which is shown by clicking the respective tab at the top of the dialog.

Learn tab

The Learn section is shown by default, and has links to Learning section of the Substance 3D website, the User Guide, our Forums, and the Substance 3D Website.

Create tab

This tab includes commands to create a new Substance compositing graph, Substance model graph, or MDL graph, as well as loading a Substance 3D file (SBS) or Substance 3D asset file (SBSAR).

The right hand panel shows a list of recently opened files for quick access.
