Wings 3D - A Polygon Modeler

Wings 3D is a subdivision modeller with an user interface that is easy to use for both beginners and advanced users (inspired by Nendo and Mirai from Izware).

Wings 3D - A Polygon Modeler

Standard tools such as Move, Scale, Rotate, Extrude, Bevel, Bridge, Cut, and Weld.

Advanced tools including: Sweep, Plane Cut, Circularise, Intersect, Bend, Shear, and Inset.

More Features
  • Magnets and Magnet Masking
  • Virtual Mirror for symmetrical modeling
  • Tweak and Sculpt
  • Wide range of Selection and Mesh tools
  • UV mapper, Vertex Colors, Materials, and Lights
Wings 3D gets its name from the Winged Edge Data Structure (WEDS). This is the data structure used to store the adjacency relationships between edges, faces, and vertices in a Wings 3D model..

Wings 3D offers a wide range of modeling tools, a customizable interface, support for lights and materials, and a built-in AutoUV mapping facility.

Quick and Dirty Wings3D Part Creation for KiCAD 3D Viewer
This quick and dirty Wings3D creation micro-tutorial covers creating a 3D part in Wings3D and exporting that part to KiCAD.

MicroPython Board Wings 3D

Jon's Place: Custom MicroPython Board

"KiCad can also show you a 3D rendering of what your board would look like, but you have to supply 3D models of any custom parts you include. My board has a whole pile of parts that I had to create my own footprint for (usb connector, uSD connector, all the Hirose DF-13 2, 3, 4, and 6-pin connectors, etc)."

3D Modeling Rendering System K-3D

K-3D is the free-as-in-freedom 3D modeling, animation, and rendering system for GNU / Linux, Posix, and Win32 operating systems.

K-3D - 3D Modeling Rendering System

K-3D features a robust, object-oriented plugin architecture, designed to scale to the needs of professional artists, and is designed from-the-ground-up to generate motion-picture-quality animation using RenderMan-compliant render engines. We strongly recommend the Aqsis render engine for use with K-3D.

3D Modeling Rendering System K-3D

Some Features are
  • Powerful scene graph Procedural Modeling with complete modeling history.
  • Selection: Objects, meshes, faces, edges, patched, curves, point groups, points.
  • Geometry types: Polygon, NURBS, subdivision, blobby.
  • 3D Primitives: Cone, circle, cushion, cylinder, disk, grid, paraboloid, polyhedron, sphere, torus.
  • Boolean modeling operations (using GTS library).
  • Instantiation: Create duplicates without adding gemometry to the scene.

See a 3D View of your Eagle Cad Layout

With Eagle3D it is possible to generate a 3D View from your Board Layout. This will help you iron out mechanical clashes, thermal conflicts. Serviceability and Accessibility issues too.

See a 3D View of your Eagle Cad Layout

On Panel PCB's Like front/back panels. Usability errors may become visible in this simulation. Connector and wiring layout can be better judged on 3D and strain relief and cable management can be planned in power electronics designs.

In sensitive analog circuits; thermal, leakage or guard rings can be inspected. In RF circuits; the shielding, tracks and components can be studied for unwanted coupling, crosstalk or leakage. Finally safety factors also can be judged keeping the enclosure 3d or cabinet in hand.

Now we have low cost 3D CNC prototype makers. Rapid prototyping - additive or laser erosion. You can probably use this as a input for such a machine. Then you can fix it in a cabinet and complete the Mechanical Simulation. This will save wastage of parts, time and pcb's during prototyping.

Autodesk - 2D and 3D CAD

Since 1982, Autodesk has ushered in state-of-the-art 2D and 3D technologies that let customers visualize, simulate, and analyze the real-world performance of their ideas early in the design process.

Autodesk - 2D and 3D CAD 

AutoCAD is a suite of CAD software products for 2- and 3-dimensional design and drafting, developed and sold by Autodesk, Inc.. The original concept of AutoCAD in the 1980s was to promote customization and feature extensibility, and was what made it especially appealing to customers.
Most contemporary CAD products at that time offered little if any customization capability and most were far more expensive.
