Ashampoo 3D CAD Professional offers a variety of well-engineered functions, one of them being the exchange of floor plans with other project members or clients via 2D-DXF/DWG import/export, irrespective of the system being used. Innovative new features of Ashampoo 3D CAD Professional are the Window Construction Module, allowing for the design of individual window types, and CINEMA 4D Export, a powerful Plug-in that converts your 3D projects into CINEMA 4D files thus providing the possibility of turning your projects into photorealistic living environments.
With the aid of 2D-DXF / DWG import as well as 2D DXF export features even the exchange of floor plans with other project members or clients presents no problems, irrespective of the system being used. An additional feature is the option to include external 3DS, 3D-DXF and VRML 1 objects during planning. The ability to position objects using numerical reference points allows unrestricted and detailed construction.
Free 3D Construction
With the new 3D construction functions you will not only design your own 3D objects for the catalog, but you will also be able to make use of the extended constructive possibilities, which exceed the predefined construction elements. New 3D constructions, called solids, are created by combining 3D elements. There are four different types of solids: Primitives are cubes, cylinders, pyramids etc.
Extrusion solids are created from a closed 2D contour for which additionally a height value is specified.
Rotation solids are created from a closed 2D contour which is rotated around a specified axis.
Sweep solids are created from a closed 2D contour which follows a specified path.
With this module it's possible to create own window types and save them to a catalog for reuse. The window can be created on an adjustable grid with predefined frame-types. The measurements of individual window components are being administered via 'profiles' that can be altered at any time. In addition, users are able to modify their windows with sash-bars, bolts and jambs.
Individual design of surfaces
Simply create 3D surfaces with the surface editor. The surface editor could be used to design, for example, tiled sections, facade elements, working surfaces, pre-wall installations etc. The free input method editor generates any surface for every possible usage (for example walls, roofs or the surface of a table).
Input assistance for planning and construction
Numeric input assistance can be used during the whole planning and construction process. Specific tools provide support and enable numeric input, wall modification, 3D object rotatio.
