    August 2018: Josip Vukovic








    1. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself and your background?

    My name is Josip Vukovic, 36 yeas old and I am from Croatia. Originally, I am a traffic engineer, but found myself in the world of 3D modeling. I work for CADENAS company since 2013. In the beginning, my job was related to mechanical market, but, during the last 3 years, I got into BIM area.


    2. What software(s) do you use?

    I mostly use our internal 3D software PARTSolutions, but also AutoCAD, Revit, SilidWorks, Inventor and ArchiCAD. I use Maxwell also for rendering.


    3. When and how did you start with 3D modeling and what was your first model?

    I have finished a 3D modeling course in SolidWorks and AutoCAD. After that, during my work period for CADENAS, I gained new skills related to other 3D modeling software programs.


    4. What are your favourite modeling subjects/themes?

    My favourite subjects are architectural elements, especially bridges, buildings, etc. Still, I like to do other things, whatever inspires me; like funny models or mechanical stuff.


    5. Are you also into 3D printing?

    Yes, I was (2 years ago). Not anymore, unfortunately. Maybe one day I will go back to it. I really like it, because you can actually print your own ideas and use it for your needs or fun.


    6. Is there any specific 3D model you are proud of and why?

    I am proud of every model which I published on PARTcloud.net portal. It really makes you proud when you see a lot of views, likes and downloads. That means you did it right and it inspires you to make new models.


    7.What was the most challenging project you have done?

    The most challenging model was SXT 300 scooter, for sure! It was great teamwork among Josip Jakubiv, Goran Pekic and myself. We have spent a lot of hours on research and details. It also required really close teamwork among all of us – working colleagues from CADENAS. The final result was the high quality 3D scooter model (published by another colleague of ours) and it resulted in more than 25 000 views and almost 250 downloads!





    8. As one of our most active members on PARTcloud.net, what do you find so attractive about it?

    You can find a lot of people from all around the world who are similar to me and do a similar job as well. You can learn from the other members, ask questions, find inspirations, but also start new friendships. I also like weekly 3D challenges, because members can show how creative they are and they always surprise you again and again.


    9. What features in PARTcommunity/PARTcloud would you like to see in the future?

    For me, as an engineer and user, it is OK for now. I always look forward to new features, because everything what is useful is welcome, so I hope to see more and more coming.


    10. Do you have any other hobbies?

    Yes, I like basketball and cycling, I am into sport a lot.


    11. Do you have any goals for the future regarding 3D modeling?

    Nothing specific for now. Still, you never know what may can come up. I like to learn and develop as an engineer and 3D modeler. How they say: knowledge is the power.


    12. What advice would you give to beginners?

    3D modeling is fun: you can learn so many other things while modeling, because you have to know your subject, so it has an educative side also. This field is really huge, unlimited and it helps you grow as a professional, but also as a person. So, do not be afraid, accept the challenge and just go ahead!
