Modeling in 3D can be easy. Learn how to use new and enhanced AutoCAD® software functionality to apply your 2D AutoCAD experience to the world of 3D modeling. In this class, I will show you how to take your ideas from concept to completion by creating and editing solid objects; creating smooth free-form shapes using meshing tools; and tapping into the power of surface modeling. Take advantage of new context-sensitive PressPull and surface curve extraction capabilities. I will also explain the differences between history- and non-history-based solids and show how you can use add-ins like Autodesk® Inventor® Fusion software to directly manipulate 3D AutoCAD models. If you thought 3D in AutoCAD was just too hard, think again.
- Modify 3D models using sub-object selection and direct manipulation
- Convert between solids, meshes, and surfaces
- Create 3D models by combining basic shapes to create more complex objects
- Use meshes and surfaces to create organic shapes
