STARTING SIMPLE - The 2D Circle
The basic design operation in Cubify Invent is to create a 2D object or objects in a 2D Sketch and then use that sketch to create a 3D object. In keeping with our learning strategy we will begin with the most simple 2D shape that can be converted to 3D. And, that is the circle. The Circle is the basis for all that we cover in this tutorial.
LIMIT OPERATIONS - Dimension and Extrude
Just as the Circle is the most simple of the 2D drawing objects that can be converted to 3D, EXTRUSION is the simplest of the commands that turn the circle into a 3D object. But, even this simple combination can surprise us. Extruding a single circle yields a dramatically different 3D object than does extruding two or more concentric circles.
Dimensions can be hard wired or based on equations that link two or more objects in a dependency. Learning to use the Equation Editor early will save a LOT of time in future operations.
From this point on, for at least several more tutorials, we will explore a wide variety of operations that all begin with the 2D circle shape, either singly or multiples.
