Ever had an idea and thought how do I transfer that idea into an image or model. ?
Well one of the most powerful aspects of any cad program is to be able to turn that idea into an image.
Product visualisation. Turbocad can turn out very accurate photo realistic print via the lightworks rendering engine. Spot lights and head lights can be turned on and even ambient lights.
There are also a vast array of render scene environments. Shadows and mirror effects are all true to life and colours can be altered through just about any spectrum you want.
Printers are now available that will print out your model in 3d.
The data in the image can be used to make the particular item via a cam program or from a magic eye which is our primary tool.
Obviously once you have your design you have it forever.
That is not the end of it though, You can scale your model in any direction you want so there is no need to redraw the item, Say you wanted one twice as big you would simply scale the item on all three axis.
