CAD Questions Thread?



  182 attempt #2
Really interesting question. If you project a 3D spline onto a 2D plane (like the above pictures) then try and go back to 3D, there are an infinite number of solutions.

I’m sure there’s probably a clever plugin that can do this but I’d assume you need two 2D images of the same thing from two different view points.

I’m sure grabcad would have some generic 3D of a hand though, if that’s what you’re after.

It’s just standard quad poly modelling used in the visual effect industry rendered out to a image then converted to cad.

Turbosquid should have lots of models with that construction.

Edit: In fact get the model, isolate the splines and flatten it in your desired view in autocad, then remove hidden lines.

yeah they open fine, but double lines and messy.

who ever makes these has em off to a fine art, all lines are just single smooth lines. very clean and no mess

The double lines are probably the fsr suede of the part that you can see through it, as you would if it was a 3d wire frame in your hand. That snowman only shows the nearside of the frame.

Nah its because I used illustrator to convert it and it treats the edge of the white and black as a line.
So each vector line is treated as two lines in cad, requires a bit of work to prep it.
Unfortunately it’s the only software that I had that still exports to 2006.

I use remote access on my work PC through my laptop and just run all my programs that way when I'm at home.

What re

Thanks
What remote access program do you use? Teamviewer?
Do you run solidworks?
No just Microsoft desktop, means I run my whole work PC remotely so I can use and do everything I could if I was sat at my desk.
Yes I use Solidworks but through the above.

Thanks for the info 👍
Does it work the same or is it leggy and slow ref opening files from server etc?
