Hello,

I am currently designing a server room. I would like to be able to draw a 2D (in the future 3D) project. Do you know any tools? Which one can you recommend?

Best regards,

  • Only if you compare apples to oranges.

    I do better with 3D because I can’t draw, shade, color, or do traditional animation worth a darn. I *can* build realistic models of what I want, and I can also convince a computer to spit out a solid 2D
    render from a 3D model.

    Now, will it take me longer to do that than for a talented 2D artist to draw it? Almost certainly. But my model is more flexible. I can easily animate it, deform it, change camera angles…in 2D, you usually have to redraw to make such full-scene changes.

    Creating in 3D is sorta like graphically writing software to create 2D
    output: the created artifact is as flexible as software, able to be repurposed in the same sort of ways. 2D is almost chiseled in stone by comparison. 3D gives you some advantages in the 2D world, too, what with multi-pass layered output. (Basically, gives you the ability to tweak a 2D static render element by element in a program like Photoshop or Gimp, or a pile of 2D frames element by element in a compositor like
    After Effects or Blender.)

    Plus, a 2D artist might not be available. I work in a small company; we wear a lot of hats. When the choice is “hire a 2D artist” vs “have
    Warren do it in 3D” we tend to pick the latter.

    Now, in certain narrow areas, I do myself still pick 2D. If I know going in that what I need is a 2D isomorphic overhead plan drawing, I
    might well do it in 2D, for example. But if I’m not sure that I might not later need a 3D version for some reason — say, figuring out A/C
    placement for air flow before bringing contractors in — it might be worth doing it in 3D from the start.

    Even if you never need the 3D model, adding the extra dimension forces you to think through things you wouldn’t consider until you’re trying to put together a pile of physical parts unboxed all over the floor.

    Just my tuppence.

  • If you are working in Linux there are practically no 3D applications available. I’ve searched repeatedly over the span of several years but never found anything really flexible enough to do any real work with.
    There are some great options if all you want is art work.

    If 3D is an absolute requirement you could try Medusa4. Runs on CentOS
    6.2 http://www.cad-schroer.com/ Medusa4, typical of all 3D CAD systems that run on Linux, can render a 3D view of a 2D layout but has no 3D
    layout capability. By that I mean that there is no way to set points in
    3D space and then connect those points dot to dot with lines and or curves. You’re limited pretty much to orthogonal layout and drawing.

    If you can live with 2D I recommend Qcad. They have a free community edition as well as a professional version. I liked it so much that I
    bought the commercial version. http://www.ribbonsoft.com/en/ They are near to releasing version 3.0.

    I’ve been using Qcad to aid in the design of a geodesic dome for a green house that I’m designing. You want to look for an application that can take commands from a command line, like Qcad can, not just by clicking on icons.
