Solid, surface, and mesh modeling
3D navigation (orbit, Viewcube, wheel)
Photorealistic rendering (lighting, materials)
3D scanning and pointclouds
Base, projected, section, and detail views
3D Print Studio
Create realistic 3D models of your design using a combination of solid, surface, and mesh modeling tools.
Use 3D viewing and navigation tools to orbit, swivel, walk, and fly around a 3D model to showcase your design. Not all 3D navigation features are available on a Mac.
Apply visual styles to control the display of edges, lighting, and shading of your 3D model. On a Mac, visual styles are found in the Properties Inspector.
Create section planes to display cross-sectional views through solids, surfaces, meshes, or regions.
Apply lighting and materials to give your 3D models a realistic appearance. On a Mac, Materials editing and offline rendering are not available.
Attach point cloud files acquired by 3D laser scanners or other technologies to create 3D representations. On a Mac, Materials editing and offline rendering are not available.
Generate 2D drawings including base, projected, section, and detail views from 3D models.
Print Studio provides the tools needed to prepare models for supported 3D printers and materials.
