# Learn SelfCAD- An online 3D modeling Software: Designing a Bus

Posted by daniellebokor May 22, 2020
First I’m going to place a cube in the center as the main part of my bus and I’m going to use the dimensions to make it longer, I’m going to make it 250 in depth. Then I will click confirm. Keep in mind this will not be exact proportions, this is my first project and I’m just trying to practice some new tools. Remember to re-name your mesh in the visualization tab on the right by double clicking. Then I will make another cube, about half the height of the first cube to b ...

# Learn SelfCAD- An online 3D modeling Software: Designing a Mug

Posted by daniellebokor May 22, 2020
I'm going to show you how to make a mug with 2 different handles that you can choose fro, a square one and rounded one. To make the cup part, first let’s place a cylinder. We want our mug to be very round and nice shaped so let’s increase the vertical segments and it’s always good to keep it as a multiple of 4 so I’ll pick 36, just eyeing it and keeping with that rule. Let’s make the height 60 and the radius 30 so our object is in proportion (a radius is half the l ...

# Learn SelfCAD- An online 3D modeling Software: Shape Generator tool

Posted by daniellebokor May 22, 2020
Today we’re going to learn to make a bishop chess piece, using only one tool! Under 3D shapes you’ll find a shape generator, called “shape” that is the only tool we will be using for this project! So what’s cool about this tool is that you can keep increasing segments and alter them uniquely. Each time you add a segment you can alter many things on it and play around with all the different features to slowly build a tower of your finished project. Also the program ...

# Learn SelfCAD- An online 3D modeling Software: Using the Revolve Tool

Posted by daniellebokor May 22, 2020
Today we’re going to learn how to make a bishop chess piece (or anything rounded) if you have a picture of something that you want to make somewhat exactly. Bring in a reference image into the center. It would also be a good idea to set your orientation to top. Now click on Drawing, freehand drawing and click spline. Before we start drawing make sure you go to height settings and make sure the height is set to 0! We’re going to be drawing a profile, not a surface and not a 3D objec ...
