3D Sketchbook

By December 24, 2012January 9th, 20132 Comments

Using a 3D program as a sketchbook can be really useful when trying to create a catalog of ideas, concepts or models. When you have ideas, it really helps to be able to explore them in more that two dimensions.

I have several of these 3D sketchbooks on my computer for everything from chairs to cars and props and light fixtures. It is great to be able to reference back to them and copy and paste them into new documents to capture parts and pieces or even materials that that they use.

Have a great holiday season everyone! Thanks for making it fun for me to make these videos.

    Hi- great video on what’s new in Rhino V5 – thanks for that!. Just to clarify the Alt-to-copy change in behavior: In previous versions of Rhino, OSnaps were not enabled for dragging objects, and holding Alt to copy while dragging did not interfere with holding Alt down to temporarily disable OSnaps behavior. In V5, you *can* drag objects using osnaps – for example, if you click on a line near its end point and drag while End OSnap is active, you can snap the end to some other end (or whatever other OSnap is available.) To allow temporary disabling of OSnaps and copying to live together without conflict, we made copying toggle with a tap on Alt.

    Hope that helps some. – Pascal
