Understanding 3D Models

The 3D tools are used to perform 3D design and modeling. These are the primary benefits of working in 3D:

  • Drawings such as plans, elevations, sections, and details are more easily generated.
  • As an added benefit, you can use these tools for rendering and visualizing 3D models to produce realistic color images of your design. This is often more cost-effective than traditional mock-ups and artist's drawings, especially when there are frequent revisions or tight deadlines. Animated sequences provide a way to present a design that was not available before CAD.
