modeling, you can create solid, wireframe, and mesh models of your
design. Modeling in 3D has several advantages. You can
View the model from any vantage point
Generate reliable standard and auxiliary 2D views
Create sections and 2D drawings
Remove hidden lines and do realistic shading
Create realistic renderings
Navigate through the model
Use the model to create an animation
Perform engineering analysis
Extract manufacturing data
create solid models, you use solids and surfaces as the building
blocks for your model.
object represents the entire volume of an object. Solids are the
most informationally complete and least ambiguous of the 3D
modeling types. Complex solid shapes are also easier to construct
and edit than wireframes and meshes.
NoteWhen you work
with 3D solids, you might occasionally see messages that refer to
ShapeManager. ShapeManager. is the Autodesk
technology that provides 3D solid modeling capabilities to AutoCAD
and other products.
