CAD Samples

As you may already know I'm a civil/structural drafter by profession, so it'd only right if I post some drafting-related materials here.

Screenshot of architectural elevations.
Screenshot of road & drainage layout plan.
Screenshot of structural key plans.

Like I said, output from my drafting works may not be as interesting as arch-viz, but if you wish to see more, please steer to my Picasa Web Album of "CAD Samples", here.

SketchUp Animation - "Erection of a Structural Steel Staircase" [Updated]

The following is a NPR "construction sequence" of a structural steel staircase, of which I also produced a fly-through animation and some 3D renders earlier, on that page.

As this is not one of my drafting works so I don't claim the sequence is 100% by-the-book. The photo of which this 3D model based on is attached at the end of this post.

This animation has better anti-alias quality than my previous ones because I re-sized the animation to half of its original output size from SketchUp, in this case from 1440*808 to 720*405, in VirtualDub. This improved the anti-aliasing a lot.

I also export it to H.264/MP4 format (which has better quality/filesize ratio) directly from VirtualDub using this "hack" instead of converting the AVI export using third party software.

VirtualDub is a free video capture/processing software, which can be downloaded from this page.

Kepong Village Mall, Kuala Lumpur.

I also uploaded the model to 3D Warehouse, click on image below to download.

I also share with you the latest rendering of this staircase.

A Structural Steel Staircase - Fly-through and Renders

The following is a NPR fly-through of a structural steel staircase.

I also uploaded some better 3D renders of the staircase. Some preliminary renders can be found on that page.

A "construction sequence" animation and the 3D model can be found on that page.

A Structural Steel Staircase (Preliminary)

The followings are some quick renders of an exterior structural steel staircase. The staircase is not part of the original building design, it was erected so people could directly access the roof top from outside of building.

The staircase design is pretty standard: UC columns and UB stringers with chequered plate treads, C-channel beams to support RHS bearers and chequered plate that form the landing, and CHS handrails and balusters.

A fly-through animation of this model is on this page, and a "construction sequence" on that page.
