Best free 3D modelling applications for you

Best free 3D modelling applications for you
Debamoy Ghosh
This is an awesome example of 25 best 3D modelling applications for completely free of cost that we are presenting you. However, to give you the clear concept, you need to know, what is 3D modelling and how it has been used.
What is 3D Modelling
In 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling is the procedure of developing a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of an object (either inanimate or living) via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. Theoretically, 3 Dimensions refers to substance that are constructed on three plans (X, Y and Z). The process of making 3D graphics can be divided into three basic phases: 3D modeling, 3D animation and 3D rendering.

Where it is used
The 3D modeling is used in a variety of industries like films, animation and gaming, interior designing and architecture. They are also used in the medical industry for the interactive representations of anatomy. A wide number of 3D software is also used in constructing digital representation of mechanical models or parts before they are actually manufactured.CAD/CAM related software are used in such fields, and with these software, not only can you construct the parts, but also assemble them, and observe their functionality. 3D modelling is also used in the field of Industrial Design, wherein products are 3D modeled before representing them to the clients. In Media and Event industries, 3D modelling is used in Stage/Set Design.

Digital modeling programs & new open source tools are streamlining 3d printing process

 Digital modeling programs & new open source tools are streamlining 3d printing process

Claudio Cosentino

In an age where it is increasingly necessary to use digital modeling programs, and new open source tools are developed ever faster, the 3D modeling also invades other sectors in addition to those of the graphics, such as industrial, medical, building and space, through the use of 3D printers. Natural evolution of printing in two dimensions, 3D printing allows you to have a real reproduction of a digital model, created with a 3D modeling software.
we started a few years ago, the courses in 3d with the use of sketchup. so in addition to modeling, rendering and animation, we became interested in 3D printing, producing a plugin stl files, compatible with a 3D printer trade. This process for the preparation of files, we realized that: the way we design our models in sketchup had to follow the strict rules imposed by 3d printing. do not let double lines, no double intersected faces that are not continuous and connected between them. and a great cleaning of the models, very often all this attention is not enough, how do we know where we have made a mistake? Fortunately for us, helps us a very interesting plugin, which saves us a lot of time to research the error. but the most important thing is to acquire a new design method with sketchup, with models that do not have to submit internal faces hidden, or lines in excess beyond that necessary, and all models must have filled the voids and coincident, in the end you have to consider that the molded object must be closed, like a box, that is, must have a minimum thickness, that the printer interprets as a part to be printed to give a real thickness.
To get our solid printable, consider a design method different from the traditional modeling, through these simple steps:
Make sure that the 3D model that has no point or line unrelated to his geometry.
Combine and intersect any faces or lines for the purpose of cleaning the model.
The correct model for any errors will be recognized as solid from SketchUp plugin and software slicing needed for 3D printing.
Check that the model is internally empty, uniform and closed, their faces clear turned outward.
Install within Sketchup plugins needed for export .stl format recognizable by other printing software.
Here are some examples for the creation of a solid:
A plugin that helps a lot to detect problems inside and outside of the solid is "Solid Inspector." by ThomThom
You can download the plugin at this link. http://extensions.sketchup.com/it/content/solid-inspector

in case of errors you will notice a red circle on the element to be corrected.
After checking that all the faces are closed and there are no errors proceed exporting the model in STL format

Introducing 3D Warehouse Detailed Collections

Introducing 3D Warehouse Detailed Collections

 Remember Component Bonus Packs? 2D and 3D trees, furniture and accessories, wood joists and roof details: these components, authored by the SketchUp team, have been a consistent staple of 3D Warehouse for years. With the release of SketchUp 2015, we've greatly expanded and improved SketchUp's standard component collections.

As of today, more than 2,800 individual detailed pieces of new SketchUp-authored content are available on 3D Warehouse. As you browse the new Detailed Collections, you'll find that many standard components, like this theater light, have been improved with a much greater level of detail.
Find more Film and Stage models here.

Similar to their predecessors, the updated and improved components are generic in nature. These new, detailed components have been uploaded alongside the simplified counterparts; the titles of new components end with "Detailed." For example, the search result for "HMI Light 4000Watts with Barndoors" will display both the simplified and detailed versions of the component. It's important to note that these new detailed components are typically more "geometry heavy" (a.k.a. higher polygon count), which means you should consider how they're used in your SketchUp model. You may consider using simplified components as proxies and replace those with the detailed versions when appropriate (just take note of component insertion points).

Several side-by-side examples of the simplified generic content vs. their detailed counterparts.
(Note: 2D Crocodile Hunter tribute model, by 3D Warehouse user jw_n_mo, not actually included in detailed glass door component.)

You can access this treasure trove of content by browsing 3D Warehouse Detailed Collections via SketchUp's 3D Warehouse window (File > 3D Warehouse > Get Models) or via your web browser. You can find all components and collections created by the SketchUp team by visiting our 3D Warehouse profile.
In addition to visual improvements, these components are also jam-packed with all sorts of useful information, including IFC attributes. Try exporting to Tekla BIMsight or Trimble Connect – both accept IFC files. You'll see that the IFC metadata transfers too!

The release of this content provides a great excuse to browse 3D Warehouse in search of new components to include in your projects. We've taken special care to include relevanttags in each component so users can search and find exactly what they need. There are collections for SeatingElectronicsJibs and Cranes... and many more! We hope you're able to take advantage of this new content and that it helps you more quickly and more accurately express your ideas.
Keep tabs on recent activity by following 3D Warehouse on TwitterFacebook, or Google+
