Creating a Curved 3D Surface

Next, you will draw the seat of the chair. The seat of a butterfly chair is usually made of-canvas and drapes’ from the four corners of the chair legs. You will first define the perimeter of the seat using arcs, and then use the Edge Surface tool on the...

Creating Complex 3D Surfaces

In the previous example, you drew a chair composed of objects that were mostly straight lines or curves with a thickness. All the forms in that chair were defined in planes perpendicular to each other. For a 3D model such as this, you can get by using the Orthographic...

Using Advanced 3D Features

AutCAD’s extended set of tools for working with 3D drawings lets you create 3D objects with few limitations on shape ‘and orientation. This chapter focuses on the use of these tools, which help you easily generate 3D forms and view them in both the...
