3d modeling

LukeSavenije
 Share

Just a stupid question, is there anyone around here that is good with 3d moddeling?

I'm not asking to do it for me, but I have some stuff to do for school with a 3dprinter. I should get solidworks in a while, but for now I keep it on free programs (using SketchUp with an extention rn)

 

any tips?

what exactly you need suggestions for...? o_o

well, I have a project for economics, it's kind of a fun project and we chose to make things on order. A teacher asked us to make some kind of a outlet for his dimming screen. And I'm the one that has to draw it, because I am the most tech savvy in my group. anything else you need to know?

Use Fusion360 to draw it.

I use Fusion360 for my 3D print related modeling.

yeah, I was already looking into it. do I need to go to my heavier pc or can I stay on my i3 pc?

Depends on the model size and complexity I think. I've only used it on my 7700k desktop, but just give it a shot I'd say. If it's too laggy, you can always switch.

it could be me, but when I try to get a licence, they just go back to the top of the page. I've followed everything that they wrote down in a document. Is it fine if I keep it on sketchup for now? I'm still going to get solidworks from school in a while. I just wanted to start a bit already in a free program

use blender 3d or inventor by autodesk both are great and blender is free so thats always a plus

how would blender be for 3d printing? and do I have to switch to my better desktop, or can I do that on my i3 desktop?

As long as you can get it to an STL file to feed to a slicer, any program you like will do. Yeah I do remember Fusion360 being a bit fiddly to get it. I think I just said student/personal use (whatever the option was).

Blender's prettly light, the downside is that it's a bit harder, in my experience, to use for things that require exact measurements, as it's not really made for that.

I have an extention added to it that can import and exports STL files. I registered it for student use, but the button just doesn't work. probebly problems with the website. Yeah, then I might use it for some others, but here I kinda need exact measurements

yeah go have a look at getting a 3-year student license https://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/students-teachers-educators

yeah, they are having problems with their websites

do you know what filetypes your 3D slicer accepts? off my head all does STL, so check if Blender can export an STL file natively (if it doesn't it'll need a plugin)

they told me it accepts STL

 

Btw, I have the controller physically, so I can measure it if needed. I'll wait a while with blender, as I'm still drawing inside sketchup rn. But when I'm done, I'll look into blender and learn it a bit first. But as said, I'm getting solidworks from school in I assume a couple weeks. So it won't be that bad to use a minimalistic program for the first orders.

well, if you know somewhere where I can find a better base for a build-on outlet, that would be nice

i ran Fusion very fluid on a I7 first gen with a 680 GTX a 6 years video card. Fusion is not that demanding. As comparaison this system did not run well at all Solidworks 2015. Obviously the lack of a Quadro didn't help.

You can do everything on a i3. If you want to keep performance high read about what you should not do with autodesk software. Even a workstation xeon is slow at some point with this software.

Solidworks or NX is better but there is no free version available.

Yeah, my main system is a 8600k with a 1070 ti, that should hold up, right?

Yeah, school has some licences for solidworks, but they are busy with getting one for me rn, so I have to wait a while for it

Fusion yes and very very easily.

 

Solidworks it depends. it's very picky driver wise. You have to screw around the registry to allow non quadro card to work. Easy to find on the web.

not sure about that ,_, sorry

well, I've created something now, but my sketchup is crashing for around 20 minutes now. and my cpu is still pinned at 3,3 ghz. So I assume it's still doing something

is it your second PC in your rig? o_o if you have the time, try porting the 1070 over for the time being? (not sure if the HP PSU might be able to handle a 1070...?)

one: that psu doesn't even have a 6+2 or 8 pin pci cable. two: I'm not going to risk it. three: It's fully working downstairs, I just use that second rig for school, so I was busy on it. for solidworks and future sketchup projects I'm just going to use my gaming rig

oh okay ._. i guess gotta bear with it for now

yep. I don't mind. I'll just leave it there for another 2 hours and see what it did. Sketchup still has autosafe built in, so not much to lose. also, the thing looks cool for an hp
