Edge smoothing - 3D CAD models

The CADENAS exchange platform PARTcloud.net offers the possibility to display edges of a model differently: Shading the edges makes the 3D model easier to recognize and gains in expressive power, without losing any information. The smaller the model and the overall view for the presentation as a screenshot or photo is decisive, the more likely users should go back to shaded edges.


1. Login at PARTcloud.net or create an account. If you are already registered for the 3D CAD models download portal PARTcommunity, this is also valid for PARTcloud.net. The components are uploaded and the information as well as details filled in so that the 3D CAD model can be found more easily by other users.




2. After uploading, the 3D CAD model appears in your own portfolio.


3. Users now enable the edge smoothing function by moving the mouse pointer to the menu point and clicking. There are four buttons.


4. On the right, the various stages of the representation are shown: edges, shaded and shaded with edges. The button in the center must be clicked to get the desired effect.


5. The result is a complete model that is now more even. Now users can set the model according to a screenshot or in the PARTcloud.net app or embed it on other websites.
