I've learnt some 3D Studio Max, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good CAD application that also does 3D.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAD#Software_providers_today
I'm looking to design some... let's just say toy cars for the sake of simplicity. while being able to have a design that's theoretically easier to turn into an actual product because of it being a CAD file will be nice, it's not 100% requirement that it be possible to produce, since I'm an amateur doing a hobby project. (although every hobbiest aspires to ... uh... well... I dunno. not everyone wants their hobby to be a job. ;)
Perhaps being able to convert to 3DSM would be nice so that I could properly animate it with a "skeleton" and moving parts. It WILL have lots of moving parts.
Also, while I'm on the topic, does anyone know how the hell to model something existing, like a model or toy car? I tried it before but I just can't keep track of what I need to measure, what's been measured, what hasn't been measured... @[email protected]
; I need some kind of detailed method.
