Hello to all - this is my first entry in this Forum.
My Name is Markus, I'm from Germany and I use ViaCad 2D/3D since Jan2015. I'm designing things for my Hobby - RC Cars and Trucks - and stuff for all day use and then print it on the 3D-printer. I like ViaCad verymuch and all the other Software I tried, was not so good in the usability. Also, I still use tinkercad for some stl-operations... perhaps this is obsolete with the powerpack?


Hers is one of my actual Projects: A shelf (Support) for my RC-Trucks (scale 1:14 / Tamiya based).

Markus

Markus, many thanks for sharing!

What kind of tools are you using in tinkercad that are not in ViaCAD?

Tim

Hello Tim,

the Import of stl-files (an changing them to volume) for further Operation is limited in Viacad 2d/3D (w/o powerpack) by the facettes. So I often upload these files in tinkercad making some easy boolean operations.

Another Thing I often use in tinkercad is the Import of svg-files, f.e. logos or cliparts, and then extrude them. > Ok, this should also be possible in Viacad...

But I would love to work only with in ViaCad!

At Amazon.de they offer a combinationpack of vcp + powerpack.

https://www.amazon.de/dp...em_r_mt_dp_RGFFxbX5RZWRF

In the description it says:

...
Exklusiv mit dabei
• Koordinaten vergleichen
• Gitternetz an Objekt anpassen
Gitternetz zu Analytic konvertieren
Gitternetz zu NURB konvertieren

Is this the powerpack pro functionality to Import and Change all stl-files, beside the number of facettes?

Regards
Markus

Hi Markus,
Do you prefer Kartoffel or patates frites for tonight ?
I'm working in Frankfurt half time, and in Paris the other half....

Salut Jean-Louis,

then there are pumping two hearts in your chest tonight at the EM football game?
I have loaded up my living room with several chips bags :-)

Ciao
Markus
