Summary

Solid modeling is a powerful method of creating complex models by combining and editing solid primitives and extruded 2D shapes. To make these models, you can use the Boolean operations of Union, Subtract, and Intersect as well as the EXTRUDE, SLICE, REVOLVE, and SECTION solids commands. The AutoCAD 2000 SOLIDEDIT command allows you to copy and modify solid edges and faces after they are created. You can also imprint shapes onto solid objects and create shells from parent solids.

Chapter 31, “Rendering in 3D,” takes 3D modeling a step further and adds rendering to the visual model “package.”
