|Most of all, I long to give others a chance to experience what I did with FIRST, to give people from my home town that opportunity, because FIRST really is that once in a lifetime opportunity that so many people dont get a chance to be a part of. It shouldnt be that way. - Jacqui Sutton [more]|
I made my first render today and I just felt a little proud so i posted it.
I've been using CAD for just over a year, but I have never made renders or used other features than just mate/constraint etc. I have experience with Pro/ENGINEER, Inventor, and now with SolidWorks. And honestly, I think SolidWorks was the best for me. It is SO user friendly, SO easy to use and learn. I've been using it for 2 days and I'm getting the hang of it.
SolidWorks for the win!

I completely Agree that SolidWorks is the most user Friendly. I attempted to use Inventor 2013, but they have a lack of tutorials and I am not sure where everything is located.
I have been talking to a team in St.Louis (1094) and have been trying to encourage them to start using CAD. I pointed out how SolidWorks is so User Friendly and now I believe they might be using CAD next year.
I am hoping that with my free time this summer I can create some Solidworks Tutorials for Beginners and to show people the extra things that will make you a lot quicker at Designing.
I am about to make a Video for this transmission (even though I already designed it once) just to show how I design, and also others can help me better my CADing Skills. I am hoping to Video Capture CADing our 2013 robot next year
Keep it up and you will be really fast at Solid Works in no time!

That's a whole lot prettier than my 10 second attempt at rendering it in Inventor.

Nice job on your first render!
If you're looking for some nice tutorials, Lynda has a pretty nice set of video tutorials for solidworks, but they aren't free unless you or your school has a membership. Something to check out I learned how to make pretty pictures in 10 minutes with that video and just poking around. Keep exploring!
