SelfCAD – A powerful 3D CAD tool for 3d modeling, sculpting and 3d printing

SelfCAD is all-in-one program that integrates modeling, drawing, sculpting and printing online. Alternatively, SelfCAD can be defined as an online browser-based 3D model, sculpt, print platform that brings 3D designing and printing accessible to all along with professional designers, hobbyists and students devoid of any prior experience with CAD/CAM software.

With SelfCAD, it becomes easier to generate cool 3D shapes quickly and smoothly. The Magic fix tool in SelfCAD can form printable objects. Slicer options support structure, raft, fill settings etc.

The generators allow developing cool, advanced shapes and transforming images into 3D geometry instantly.

SelfCAD comprises freehand, polyline, spline, eraser drawing and advanced polygon detection features. SelfCAD’s sculpting enables creativity with gestures and facilitates your ideas to have the desired shapes quickly and smoothly. SelfCAD tied a knot with https://www.Myminifactory.com to produce numerous readily available 3d printable objects. With SelfCAD’s macros, it is possible for automating transformations, drawing, copy and extrusion patterns etc.

Currently, SelfCAD is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10, Mac and Linux with browser support for Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

How to create an object in 3D from the 2d drawing

From this autocad tutorial, one can learn how to create a 3d model out of a 2D drawing.

With the help of circle command available in draw panel of home tab, produce some circles. Ensure circle having radius 2.5 units retains its center on the perimeter of the circle with radius 26 units.

 Choose polar array from the modify panel available in home tab and opt for two small circles on the top of the geometry. Now, define the center of the largest circle like the center of the array and enter 4 in the number of items field. An array will be produced as follow :-

Remove the largest circle and choose FILLET command, now provide R on the command section and as fillet radius give 7. Now, use this fillet at the junctures of the circle with R2.5 and R22.5 as illustrated below :-

Trim all the geometries so that it appears as follow :-

Write J on the command box and press enter then choose the entire geometry and further press enter to combine all outer 2D segments into a single unit. If it is required, iterate the JOIN command various times to connect the geometry entirely.

Transform view to southwest isometric and visual style to Shaded from Views and Visual styles panel of Visualize tab.

Write PRESSPULL on the command box and click at a location within the geometry, ensure you are clicking within the geometry and not on the geometry. Provide the height of 3 units on the command box and press Enter.

This command will include the density of 3 units to the 2D geometry that is already created and your drawing will appear as the image illustrated above.

Generate a circle of R17 on the top of the object that was formed in earlier step, but for producing a circle on top plane you have to ensure that dynamic UCS is turned on by pressing F6. Afterward, choose circle command and shift the cursor to the top plane and click at the center of geometry for circle’s center and put a radius of 17 units and press Enter further.

Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture Fundamentals – Imperial (1st Edition) – An exclusive reference book for Revit users

The Autodesk Revit software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets.

Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture Fundamentals – Imperial (1st Edition) is an exclusive reference book for Revit professionals that briefly focuses on the Autodesk Revit functionality to be applied efficiently during the design process.

Initially, the book explains the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you will be familiar with design development tools together with how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. At last, you will be introduced with the processes to transform the model to the construction documentation phase.

The book will facilitate the students to generate complete 3D architectural project models and arrange them in working drawings.

The book includes the following topics :-

  • Perception of the objective of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is used with the Autodesk Revit software.
    • Administering the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface.
    • Dealing with the fundamental drawing and editing tools.
    • Generating Levels and Grids as datum components for the model.
  • Making a 3D building model involving walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors.
    • Inclusion of floors, ceilings, and roofs to the building model.
    • Generating component-based and custom stairs.
    • Inclusion of component features like furniture and equipment.
    • Arrangement of sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules.
    • Production of details.

How Twinmotion 2018 is synchronized with Revit

This Revit video provides brief demonstration on Twinmotion 2018 that will launched very soon by Abvent. The newest version will be very useful for architectural visualization via 3D immersion with some simple clicks of the mouse.

Twinmotion 2018 is supported with Unreal Engine. It is very user-friendly and powerful for architects and designers to generate images, videos, panoramas and executable files.

Twinmotion 2018 offers real-time collaboration with ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit. Given below, some exclusive features of the software :-

It produces photorealistic visualisations of buildings as well as imports models in a standard range of 3D file formats, together with FBX, DWG and DAE.

The Users will be able to develop background environments out of a library of stock models and textures, and attribute lights.

There are various types of atmospheric properties which range from clouds, rain and snow, as well as ambient lighting on the basis of geographical location and time of day. These are modified through slider-based controls.

 There also exist brush-based systems for editing topography or inserting animatiable vegetation to a scene, and a Bezier-based system for pathing animated crowds or traffic.
