We are leading the market in the application of BIM software, tools, methods and processes in building engineering and construction sectors complying to the present project BIM requirements and precisely addressing business requisites without exceeding budgets and resources.
Lynn Allen, presents this exclusive cad video that demonstrates how to control the object snap behavior when it connects to hatch patterns and extension lines in AutoCAD.
Have you ever tried to grab the endpoint of an extension line instead of the anticipated object, or grab the seperate objects in a crosshatch pattern, then this AutoCAD video tutorial is ideal for you.
To install custom hatch patterns into AutoCAD, follow the steps, given below.
Copy your hatch pattern PAT file(s) into the default Support folder that AutoCAD employs to locate hatch patterns. The default path is mentioned in the Support File Search Path list under the Files tab in Options. It is normally the first one displayed. It is the one that goes to your user folder.

Given below, the detailed lists of best free 3d modeling software which can be used for animation, sculpting, visualization, simulate and ender graphic designs. Wings 3D Modelling Software: It is a free open-source subdivision modeling software that contains extensive lists of selection and 3d modeling tools. It provides support for lights and materials, and an in-built AutoUV mapping facility. The software is compatible with Windows, macOS and Linux.
Sculptris: It is a virtual sculpting software program developed by Pixologic. The software is ideal for sculpture and used to create organic models. Sculptris is developed to work seamlessly with ZBrush. While choosing the "GoZ™" button in Sculptris, your whole mesh will be transmitted to ZBrush.
Open SCAD: OpenSCAD is a free software that is frequently used for producing solid 3D CAD objects. This simple 3d program is compatible with Linux/UNIX, MS Windows and Mac OS X.
Daz Studio: It is a robust and free 3D creation software tool that can produce stunning 3D art for 3D artist or 3D animator.
With in-built file export capabilities, all of your Daz 3D contents are easily imported into other leading 3D software tools like 3DS Max, Mudbox and Maya. Export formats consist of Autodesk FBX, COLLADA, OBJ, BVH and Universal 3D.
AutoDesk 123D: AutoDesk 123D includes a series of CAD and 3D-modeling tools. AutoDesk 123D also supports the 3D printing technology. It comprises of different tools to generate, design, and render 3D models. There are over 10,000 free 3D models to be utilized in personal projects. AutoDesk 123D supports Windows, macOS, iOS, Android (soon) platform.
3D Crafter: 3D Crafter is a free real-time 3D modeling and animation tool that integrates an inherent drag-and-drop approach to 3D modeling. The software allows you to import 3D file formats for some leading software like 3D Studio, AutoCAD, Maya, trueSpace, DirectX and more. All the complicated models can be developed from simple 3D primitives, or produced with 3D Crafter’s Shape Building Tools. Modeling tools can be applied to deform, sculpt, and paint 3D shapes.
Bentley System launched OpenRail design and maintenance software to apply BIM for the broad planning, engineering, project delivery, and operations of rail and transit infrastructure. It deals with vertical and horizontal track geometry as well as produce 3D models for analysis and visualization and reports for cost estimates and setting-out, and product construction deliverables. OpenRail will get together digital components and digital context, during digital workflows. OpenRail applications will consist of OpenRail ConceptStation which can be used for conceptual railway planning and design. In future, OpenRail Designer will be accessible for detailed engineering and 3D design of track, overhead line, tunnels, bridges, and interrelated civil infrastructure and AECOsim Station Designer will be applicable for the comprehensive modeling of rail and transit stations. OpenRail is developed on the basis of a connected data environment that includes the shared services of ProjectWise and AssetWise, as configured particularly for rail systems engineering workflows. Throughout project delivery, ProjectWise allows the collaboration between distributed engineering teams, coordination of structured workflows, and connected project visibility. For OpenRail, AssetWise delivers asset lifecycle information services for linear, network and geospatial referencing, corridor maintenance decision support, inspection workflows, and reliability and change management. OpenRail CDE services contain Components Center for digital components, ContextShare for digital context, ComplyPro for progressive assurance, and ConstructSim Completions for accessing operational readiness. Components Center is an Azure cloud service of libraries which arrange, across disciplines and applications, the semantic content of catalogued components, potentially including vendor data, fabrication details, component requirements (for example, electrical specifications and connections), reliability characteristics, and representational views necessary for documentation (as for instance, 3D, plan, schematic). A digital component is reprocessed across BIM workflows in design modeling, analytical modeling, construction modeling, and asset registries—from catalogued component, to engineered component, to installed component, to operated component.
