What can be done in 3d

Post by brace » 05 Mar 2015, 12:37

Hello,

I am exploring your components.

i have 3 requirements to explore:
1) creating a 3d file at runtime (somehow i have 4 building blocks and i would like to create a 3d file) by inserting the blocks at specific points in space - i think this is not possible by reading the forum

2) see the surfaces: i tried to load a cube in the 3d demo viewer, but i see only a wireframe, i do not see the filled sufaces. Is it possible to see the surface?
I loaded this: Image, but i see this: Image

3) i would like to have a final result similar to this (this is a screen cast from an other app): http://www.screencast.com/t/4xddt9rlV

I would like to have a slider in the ui to control the transparency of an object in the 3d file.

Please note this is the first time i face CAD in my professional life (i am just a Delphi developer who mainly works with databases) so forgive me if i am not using the correct terms.

i hope you can reply.

Thanks

Hello,

It is possible to build a 3D model by creating 3D FACE DXF entities programmatically. In order to see the filled sufaces, you should switch to 3D Smooth shading mode in the demo application: click the Display mode button, then select Display mode -> 3D Smooth shading.

As for the transparency, CAD VCL uses GLScene library for 3D rendering, there are some settings in the GLScene to set a transparency, materials, etc.

Maybe someone posted a reply and then deleted it. Never mind.
