Hey folks! Alright so I am using Shapr3D for something that doesn’t seem like something people are generally using it for. Namely I am using it for laser cutting. I made laser cut buildings and terrain for hobbyist doing miniature war gaming. Yes, I can share some photos later on.
Shapr3D has really helped with designing stuff. In just a few hours I have knocked out some designs that have been a challenge everywhere I have been trying it. Now I did end up getting an iPad Pro upgrading from my iPad 10 (last years model) because doing some of the unique designs ate up memory or something and Shapr3D would crash.
Now onto my questions. If I have a design like for example bricks for a wall. Is there a way to extrude those while maintaining their own spacing and not being extruded as a giant union? In the screen shots below you will see the doorway arch. I have the stone “stacked” but if I extrude it all together it will be a single object.
Second question and I might have the answer. Is there a ways to group different parts of the sketch together. Again referring to the images below, you can see there is a rectangle (it will be a door) and there is a decorative piece above it. With that decorative piece and even the doorway is there is way to link it to the overall piece I was working on so if I click on it to arrange it they stick with it? I think the answer will be to make it a different sketch plane and then it would be grouped together.
I think that is the two pressing questions I have. A third is actually more a feature request. Being able to give sketch lines different colors though I don’t think DFX exports with colors, but SVG does. Anyways that is just to save me from moving it to the cutting software and having to change colors.
PS I did add some of the other stuff I have laser cut and even 3D printed that I did in Shapr3D
