NB: There are Video Tutorials supporting this eBook. Links to video tutorials are inclusive.By 3D printing scale models, architects can save time, troubleshoot problems, and fully illustrate their ideas in three dimensions. In this eBook, we will take you through the steps of transforming your 2D architectural drawings into a 3D model printed on a MakerBot 3D printer. The course reviews AutoCAD’s 3D modelling tools and commands and pays special attention to necessary adaptations and settings for successful 3D prints.This course is perfect for architects or other professionals who are working in Scale. 3D printing is a great way to extend the work you are already doing in AutoCAD. Make scale models to troubleshoot your ideas, impress clients, and solve problems. In this course, we will start with a 2D AutoCAD drawing of a house and transform it into a finished 3D printed Scale Model. Along the way, we will learn about the tools and commands in AutoCAD that relate to the 3D printing process. We will do some basic solid modelling, focus on ways to customize your model like adding 3D text and logos. We will learn about the 3D print command and I will share some tips and tricks for creating models that will 3D print reliably.
