Get started with nanoCAD

Product feature:

A series of guided lessons on using nanoCAD. If you are new to computer-aided design, then these lessons will help you become an expert at the practical use of nanoCAD.

2D Drawings from 3D Models in nanoCAD Pro - Lesson 36

Once a 3D model is finished, it is a common task to generate 2D drawings from it for the shop floor. nanoCAD Pro does this for you semi-automatically. In this video, you learn how to generate 2D plans and sections, as well as how to employ live sections to make cutting planes in one, two, and three dimensions.

More Ways to Edit 3D Solids with nanoCAD Pro - Lesson 35

The most common edit made to 3D solids probably is rounding and flattening edges. In this video, you learn how to apply 3D fillets and 3D chamfers to 3D solids. As well, you find out about a trick to edit a 3D polyface mesh object, then turn it into a solid, thereby making shapes not otherwise possible with solids.

Modifying 3D Models - Lesson 34

Once the basics of a 3D model are placed with primitives or extruded 2D objects, you can begin to modify it. In this video, you learn how to change the shape of a 3D model using logical (Boolean) operations named Union, Subtract, and Intersect. You learn also how to change the shape with 2D entities and with the PressPull command.

Simple 3D Modelin in nanoCAD Pro - Lesson 33

nanoCAD Pro provides several ways to construct 3D model. In this video you learn about drawing 3D primitives, like a box. You also learn how to turn 2D drawings into 3D models, such as a rectangle into a box and (with the Extrude command) into a pipe shape (with the Revolve command). You see how to edit this 3D models using grips, and learn the names of the parts of a 3D model.

Introducing 3D Modeling with nanoCAD Pro - Lesson 32

nanoCAD Pro is excellent at 3D modeling. In this video, you learn some introductory concepts to 3D modeling, such a how to use dynamic UCS to draw on 3D faces, changing the 3D viewpoint quickly, and adjusting shading modes so that the model looks better.

Advanced Dimensioning Methods in nanoCAD - Lesson 31

nanoCAD has the flexibility to show several kinds of advanced dimensions. In this video, you learn how to have both Imperial and metric distances on dimensions, as well as how to show four kinds of tolerances on dimensions.
