3D programs for the symbols?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am currently working with a company who is attempting to design AutoCAD symbols for an outside foodservice company. I have a few questions that I hope someone will be able to answer!

 

How common is it to produce 2D symbols as well as 3D symbols? And, if 3D symbols are common, what programs are easiest/best to use?

 

Additionally, what are the standard set of views for the symbols? Just overhead? Or overhead and profile?

 

Thank you in advance!!

Welcome to CADTutor!

 

I'm not sure that I understand what you mean by 'symbol'... do you mean a drawing (aka block) which can be used/inserted/referenced in other drawings?

 

I would venture that the answer to the 'How common is it to produce 2D symbols as well as 3D'and 'what are the standard set of views for the symbols? Just overhead? Or overhead and profile?' questions are the same.... that is based on whatever your project's scope requires.

 

For example - you're not going to waste time modeling a 3D drawing, if you're only being paid for 2D.

You are producing symbols for a food service company. What kinds of drawings will they be used in? Schematics require 2D symbols. 3D plant layouts might require 3D blocks of particular objects (like ovens, counters, rolling service trays, etc.) not necessarily "symbols" as might be used in a 2D drawing. More information would be appreciated.
