Creating 3D Geometry
Nothing in AutoCAD is quite as fascinating as drawing in 3D. While fascinating to create, 3D models are incredibly valuable project assets. Today’s architects and engineers are increasingly using AutoCAD’s 3D features not only to communicate designs with clients, but also as a design and analysis tool.
LT has a few 3D viewing tools but none of the 3D solid-modeling tools that AutoCAD supports. Therefore, this chapter doesn’t apply to LT.
Consequently, acquiring some skills in working in 3D is becoming an employment requirement, and it’s also a lot of fun. This chapter covers 3D modeling, and the next chapter introduces materials and rendering.
Constructing a 3D model of a building requires many of the tools ...
