• 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – April 2019

    In this session, we built a bandstand with a curving, oval-shaped roof. The project allowed us to review 3D modeling basics, working planes, the Project tool, Subdivision modeling, and the Bend Solid tool.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – March 2019

    In this session, we modeled a metal bracket, discussed how to get the threaded fasteners that you need, showed some key features for changing the look of fences, and did a solar study of an arbor.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – February 2019

    In this session, we covered using roof objects to create ceilings with various slopes and discussed creating textures for tile designs.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – December 2018

    In this session, we discussed how to go about modeling various objects in 3D, making the simplest shapes with extrusions and proceeding to increasingly more complicated shapes made from multiple extrusions, sweeps, Extrude Along Path, NURBS curves, and subdivision modeling.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – March 2018

    In this session, we used various methods—the Extrude Along Path command, the Foliage tool, and the Create Surface Array command—to create a vertical garden, as well as discussing how to create a transparent color mask and how to use the Chain Extrude tool.

  • Getting Started Special Interest Group February 2018

      In this session, we looked at some basic concepts in 3D modeling, covered how to speed things up with the numeric keypad and other key combinations, discussed the floating datum and texture mapping, and showed how to turn a 3D object into a symbol.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – January 2018

    In this session, we discussed a bit about using textures versus making a 3D model, covered how turning the Callout tool into a symbol can add functionality to it, constructed a room with various moldings and panels, created a texture, and demonstrated aspects of using the Create Interior Elevation Viewport…

  • Getting Started Special Interest Group October 2017

    In this session, we looked at an easy way to import classes, the ease of controlling a title block symbol through the Sheet Border Tool, and the power of the Fit Walls to Object command.

  • 3D Modeling Special Interest Group – October 2017

    In this session, we covered matching the 3D look of slab objects with their 2D look, editing Extrude Along Path objects, modifying the lighting and rendering settings, and using some of the 3D Power Pack tools and Subdivision Modeling tools.
