Free CAD Software
Jörg posted a topic in General ModelingHi together, The software CAESES is a CAD and optimization platform. For students and PhD students there are free non-commercial licenses available. In addition, there are low-price offers for start-ups and smaller companies. CAESES can be used for 2D and 3D parametric modeling, see this link for some information about its CAD capabilities. Here are some screenshots: Compared to traditional CAD systems, CAESES is a bit different. It comes with a strict object-oriented approach, i.e. the user sets up dependencies between objects and these dependencies are then kept. This makes it easy to automate the geometry generation process. Here are some features of CAESES: Full 2D and 3D modeling capabilities (NURBS-based)Roughly 20 curve types and 15 surface typesStandard transformations (translation, rotation, scaling)Writing of custom features and functionsBoolean operationsTrimmingFillets between surfacesMorphing functionality for deformation of existing geometrySurface tessellation control through e.g. trimesh objects to create and fine-tune custom STL dataCommon import and export formats e.g. IGES, STEP, PARASOLID, STLIndustry-specific modules for blade and ship designBatch mode for non-GUI (hidden) geometry generation in the background Cheers Joerg LAST UPDATE: NOV 2017
Jörg posted a topic in MiscellaneousJust a little but often very useful thing: You can save camera positions with a user-defined name and restore them with a single mouse click. The corresponding toolbar is here: view > toolbars > camera positions. See also the attachment. Cheers Joerg
Louise(Barnes) posted a topic in General ModelingI received a 3D scan of the ship's hull from the project executor, but it turned out to be done with Artec Studio in PLY file format. Of course, this is my mistake when I did not specify in what extension the 3d model should be made. What can I do in this case? Is there any tool or plugin that allows me to import this format, or should I contact the executor to give me an IGES or STEP version? I am not a pro in this kind of questions, any help will be appreciated. Cheers.
