Some Examples for the Use of 3D Constructions
As already mentioned, applications for the use of 3D constructions are almost unlimited. Obvious examples, apart from creating 3D objects for the catalog, are construction and decorative elements on or around a building, such as:
· Patio roofs
· Steel girders
The following illustrations show a building with and without 3D constructions or 3D objects created from 3D constructions, with the exception of the car, people and trees, which come from the catalog.
The example with 3D constructions:
In this project the following types of solids were used:
Sweep solids: For the window, cornice and foundation moldings, the road and pavements, the drainpipes, the balustrade parapet and the balustrade footing.
Rotation solids: For the balusters.
Extrusion solids: For the stoop, the canopy, parts of the fence and on various balcony elements.
Primatives: Cubes for the balustrade pillars, spheres for the steps, cylinders for the columns ….
The same project without 3D constructions:
An exterior balcony with sweep solids for the steel supports, the handrail and the sides of the platform. The remainder is made up of cubes.
Example of a carport: From cubes and a sweep solid for the fascia board.
Rose arch: Cubes for the trellis and extrusion solids for the timber structure.
Various planters created from rotation solids:
