I am designing an independent 20’ x 25’ Accessory Dwelling Unit aka Granny Shack that will be attached to our main house. Should our financial fortunes decline, my wife and I may live there and we will rent out the main house which is 5 X larger. So the question arises, how would some of our current furniture fit. We eat most meals at table/chairs in our breakfast nook area and not in the dining room. So I modeled these table/chairs using the new beta version. Along with learning new stuff in the beta, bug reporting, etc this took about 8 hours. Given the diversions and learning curve, I probably reproduce this from scratch now in less than 4 hours.
You get the idea of the workflow: table, chair, ensemble, in situ. I was pleased to see that this would work and I can now show this to my wife for her approval.
The table was easy to model (just took a few measurements) but the chair was more involved. I wanted to try a technique other than taking a picture and importing. Tried a big block approach, which worked well starting here.
I used the section view several times to position sketches; quite useful.
To recap, this is a quick and dirty, yet realistic modeling effort with real life value.
Shapr3D Pro version costs a bit but the results (in my case, domestic tranquility) are priceless.
