Four Free 3D Modeling Software Solutions for Contractors Around Burlington

3D modeling softwareBefore partaking in the actual demolition and excavation of a site, contractors need to map a digital blueprint of what they plan to build. Traditionally, this was done using hand-drawn sketches. Nowadays, contractors have access to state-of-the-art construction software programs. We'll take a look at the top four free 3D modeling software for contractors.

Best 3D Modeling Software for Construction Projects

1. 3D Crafter

3D Crafter utilizes an easy-to-use drag-and-drop system for creating various 3D models and sculptures. This is a prime choice for developing images ranging from low-polygon models to more detailed 3D renderings. Developing 3D models also enables contractors to determine the equipment and type of excavators or breakers they will need for the impending project.

2. Meshmixer

This is a trending construction and architectural software. This system is intended for creating models that users can make into a physical copy via 3D printing. The software comes with other useful features like brushing and surface-lassoing.

3. Onshape

This software is intended for team use. All users have access to the same CAD system and data updates in real-time. This ensures everyone is on the same page. The system is also helpful for collaboration between contractors and clients. In addition, it's cloud-based, so no software installation or download is required.

4. Sketchup

This is the perfect software for contractors who still prefer drawing their own sketches. You can draw lines and shapes, with features for stretching, enlarging, and painting over your creation. The system has a user forum where you can start industry-related threads or seek input from other contractors.
