To create designs inspired by the natural world you need a tool capable of producing organic shapes in a digital environment. Jacob Dale, creative director and founder of Tangably, opens up the possibilities for this type of design in the latest episode of our New Technologies webinar series, “Organic Prototyping with the Subdivision Tool.”
Marinella Vronti, a recent interior design graduate from the UK, has always known that she wanted a career in the creative industry. “During school, I was always attracted to subjects like art,” Vronti says. “I always knew that I would never be the student to pursue politics or a career in business. I wanted to be able to create things.”
We've joined forces with German-based 3D comparison platform 3YOURMIND to help you make designs created in Vectorworks 2016 3D-printing ready. As if that isn’t enough, you’ll be happy to hear that the new plugin enabling this additive process is completely free of charge.
For award-winning architecture and design team Peter and Sharon Exley, fun elevates the everyday.
