Not everyone uses 3D in AutoCAD, but the Mac version has matching tools and methods for creating solids and viewing them. There are a handful of differences though, so take a look.
- [Instructor] AutoCAD for Mac works with 3D elements…in very similar ways to AutoCAD for Windows.…I'm going to switch to the modeling tool set,…and here we can see all of our familiar tools.…I could use solid modeling,…to create boxes…and spheres.…I can use the ViewCube to pan around,…and look at different angles of my model.…And I can choose different visual styles…to view my model in.…One big difference between Windows and Mac…comes into play with rendering.…
Which is now completely handled online…in newer versions of AutoCAD for Mac.…When I choose render here from the tool set,…I get a message that…all of my files are going to be rendered online.…When I click ok, a browser opens…and takes me to the 360 Autodesk rendering site.…Here I can upload my files…and have Autodesk render them…using their server farms.…That means that instead of my single computer…chugging along for hours to render a scene,…an entire warehouse of computers…will burn through to render my scene quickly,…so I can keep working.…
This can be an issue for some users.…
