DRAWINGS I CREATED:
AUTOCAD "2.6X" TO 2013 AND
RENDERINGS IN AUTOCAD
ANIMATIONS IN MICROSTATION V8I
1996- Design of control panel for new line in US from Asian Model and Components. To Assure Form and fit design was done in 3d. All components and panels to assure fit and function. to design needed offsets and support hardware before encounetring the "physical need". BEEN USING "3D" SINCE 1990'S.
Rendering allows me to take a drawing to another level to show real life "visual expectations". Not just drawings. Visualization of Materials and Lighting can "clarify undersatnding". Examination under various lighting circumstances can be useful. Photo realistic is the best. Although I have been limited by Resources: Computer and RAM. The higher the memeory the better the resolution. Renderings here, done in Autocad. Microstation has a better rendering Engine but is less universally compatible.
Animation can make a task or function more understandable. "Walk thrus" can give a idea of "space and travel". Animations can show a process remotely to another with clarity. Animations can check clearances and collisions, "during expected operation". I am most familiar using Animation for simple presentations. Making meetings and discussions "More informative" and "Ideas" more "Eye catching."
