Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Other types of modeling, part of Learning 3D Printing.
…Solid modeling and mesh modeling are two of the big…3D categories in 3D design, but it's not the whole story.…There's quite a bit of variation within these two methods, and…it's common for pro-software packages to incorporate more than one modeling style.…There are couple other types I want you to be aware of.…Parametric design is another modeling option you'll encounter.…Parametric modelers let you…set up a design with a set of rules. A simple example would be a wheel.…There are a couple important parameters.…
The outside diameter, the thickness of the tire, the number of spokes, and the…size of the hub change the variables and create multiple variations of your design.…Generative design works in a similar way.…Instead of combining shapes to create a design, you use programming languages or…math algorithms.…There are also a number of graphical interfaces to help you get…started with this type of design if you don't have a programming background.…Project Shapeshift is one of those programs.…You can change a variety of variables by using the sliders in the side bar.…
