In this Tutorial, you will gain additional 3D CAD experience with Alibre Design, by using the Loft Feature to create a Lofted Vase, with 3 Swept Legs added, introducing you to the Sweep Feature also.
If you would like to try this and don't yet have acopy of Alibre Design, you can get the Alibre Design Trial
, or Alibre Design Express
. Text Only versions of these tutorials are on my Alibre Design Tutorials Site
In the next step, you will have a pdf file - open this to do the tutorial.
You will start out by being shown Launching of Alibre Design, selecting Work Offline, opening and Maximizing the size of a New Part workspace, and setting up some Properties for elements of the work space, and also Options - including Grid selections, Color Scheme, and standard defaults.
I then show you creating a series of 4 sketches, each on a different plane (3 new planes created), Loft them, adding the legs using the sweep feature and pattern feature, and hollow out the Vase with the Shell feature. Finally adding simple colors and reflective properties, insert and view a 3D Section, and saving the file.
