I hope this is the correct place for this, I looked and this seemed like the correct place. At work I use Acad for 2D and Inv for 3D (solid modeling). Our Inv has serious issues and so I have been learning to do my 3D in Acad on my own. It has been fun, but time consuming. Most of my learning (my self-teaching was mostly done in Acad 06 but we just upgraded to 08 ) was done by reading blogs, forums and just fooling around with it. I can draw anything I want to in 3D, but am I doing it correctly? I use extrude when I can, but I use a lot of the 3Dface command. I am thinking that now that we have upgraded I will have more 3D commands at my disposal (I hope). I am sure that there are easier and more correct ways of doing things that I do, in school we just focused on the 2D, however, now they are being taught more of the 3D drafting.
What are the correct methods for 3D drafting and modeling in Acad? I know that there are different ways to get the same look, are there preferred methods that I should be using?
