    Default Designing a 3D swimming pool

    What would be the best way to go about putting a 3D swimming pool into your plan?

    Thanks,

    If the walls and floors are straight and easily done than I would say create wall and slab styles for the pool. Otherwise you might try using mass elements.

    Just my 2c.

    Some see the glass as half full, others as half empty. As an engineer I see the glass as twice as big as it needs to be. ~Unknown~

    Depends on the pool. As Scott said walls and a slab would work ok for a simple pool, but lets say you want to do a kidney pool w/ a slopping contoured bottom that any skate boarder would love to drain and skate in. I think I'd look at using the Drap tool along with either some walls for the completely vertial parts, or a mass element. You can create just about any desired contoured surface with the drape command. Or you can look on some of the 3d sites, cause I bet someone's already created one. Hope this helps.

    Hey Tim, coming from a vanilla background i'd use 3D solids then convert to mass elements. Anywho i think we would all be interested in seeing the end result, if you wouldnt mind posting it

    CAD would be best option. You can try it and would see desired results.

    The decor of the bedroom should have a positive effect on the person. The design of the room contributes to calm in the evening before going to bed, and in the morning to bring in a cheerful mood, adjusting to a beautiful day. I know the place where to find best decorations for your bedroom - .

    With the help of CAD you can easily do it. But before doing it, you need to find how much space you have for the swimming pool and which shape of pool you want?
