Short version: If You are interested in 3d printing, but You don’t know how to create 3d models for 3d printer – this is blog for You.
Longer version 😉
For many years CAD modeling has been my everyday life – during this time I have learned a lot of things that should be avoided… just not to throw the computer away. Let me be your guide. 😉
Why You should read my blog:
- If you are afraid of the costs of professional programs for 3d modeling.
- After watching the dozens of tutorials found on the internet, You still feel that you are not able to model something by yourself.
- If, after finishing modeling, the vision of making changes become your worst nightmare.
- If you are worried about the huge amount of features needed to build the model
…I am sure I know what you feel and I think I can help you a
I’ve been modeling in Autodesk Inventor for a few years. Everyday. After thousands hours spent with the spacemouse in my hand I came to the most important conclusion:
The easier – the better.
Modeling programs have a lot of interesting features, which we do not need in 99%. I will not show you how many options I know – I will show you how to create complex models in the simplest way.
The best way of course doesn’t mean the fastest, but the most useful one. Using the fastest and most direct way is in many cases reason of huge problem whenever you need to change something in your project. The main feature of a good model is the ability to make modifications on every stage without generating many errors.
I have developed a lot of methods that make life easier at every stage of the project. I will show you how to create a model so that it can be easily modified. I will try to teach You not only “where to click”, but also I present You my philosophy of modeling. I will answer not only to the question “what?”, But also “why?” … or rather “why not?” 😉
Few words about program that we are going to use. The Autodesk Inventor Pro costs a lot. Inventor Lt subscription costs more reasonable money, but Autodesk Fusion 360 is completely free. I will add some Inventor posts from time to time but Fusion 360 will be the main topic. Finally, there is another reason why I choose Fusion 360. Well, I do not know this program at all, so we aro going to learn that together. 😉
