Hopefully everyone has been making it around some of the Autodesk BLOGS and other user BLOGS to see what's new. Soo many new features in AutoCAD 2007 for 3D its pretty overwhelming at first. But once you get your hands on it you'll never model 3D in previous releases again.
So here's some other new features. There's now some really nice 3D navigation tools such as 3DWALK and 3DFLY. How about some animation tools such as walk through and defining motion paths through polylines? You can also export this to desired resolutions and other video formats such as AVI, WMV, and MPG.
Theres a new feature called visual styles. Visual styles allow you to apply more styles to your drawings rather than the plain old SMOOTH PLUS edges we've had for years. Theres some default ones like Conceptual and Realistic that give you a pretty cool look that you can export if you want to a raster image. You can set overhangs to your lines, along with Jitter effects that can give you a pretty cool sketchy look.
There are soo many cool settings you can change with the Visual Styles. Whats really cool is if you find the perfect setting you like, you can just save the Style and use it in other models!!
More to come tomorrow.
