3D Modeling
In recent years, many improvements have been made in the capabilities and user interface of 3D computer modeling applications. Almost any form, real or imagined, can be generated using 3D modeling applications. The excitement is in dynamic and intuitive creative exploration, and the realization that you are actually drawing in three dimensions where objects (or whole environments) can be viewed from any point of view and quickly moved, scaled, or more dramatically altered. In the Studio, you can try out the latest haptic modeling device, which allows for tactile feedback in the digital 3D modeling process. A completed model can be output to a rapid prototyping machine, animated with 3D animation software, or shaded, textured, rendered, and printed as a 2D image.
3D Modeling Procedures
1. Sign up for a two-, three-, or four-hour session (sign ups are offered one day in advance and on a first-come, first-served basis).
2. if you are bringing data in to work with, it must be on a CD.
3. Pick up a work slip when you check in for your session. 4. Work on your model.
5) If you would like your object file written to CD, check the 3D Data CD box on the work slip and follow the instructions there.
6. If you would like your object rapid prototyped, check the 3D Model box on the workslip and follow the 3D Rapid Prototyping Procedures.
7. If you would like a 2D print of your work, refer to the 2D area.
8) If you would like to animate your object, refer to the Animation area.
