We first heard about online 3D modeling software SelfCAD last year, though it was founded back in 2015 and launched in 2016 by CEO Aaron Breuer. The all-in-one, browser-based software simplifies the 3D printing process for both beginners and advanced users, as it allows users to model, sculpt, sketch, and slice in a single program without requiring any downloads, and work can be easily saved in the cloud.
Last December, the user-friendly software received a new, comprehensive set of drawing tools, such as brush, line, rectangular, and donut drawing, and this summer, the platform announced a partnership with popular 3D printable model marketplace MyMiniFactory, so users can easily access its design library.
The simple software interface is easy to use, so beginners looking to master 3D modeling can do so. Just last month, SelfCAD launched an updated version of its professional online software, with new and improved features, developed based on its users’ personal expectations of powerful but easy to use 3D modeling software. Now, we’re learning a little more about this new version.
Version 2.0 of SelfCAD has an updated intuitive user interface with a simplified design that’s even more simple to use, thanks to its less confusing Toolbar and Scene, and features amazing new selection modes so users can easily choose the models they want.
A 3D sketching toolset can increase the user’s level of freedom, and includes new sketching brushes, which make it easy to create a variety of 3D profiles. There’s also a simple objects view that consists of both light and dark modes, and 2D, 3D, and Free Drawing are all easier than ever, thanks to SelfCAD’s newest shapes and sketching brushes.
In addition, an updated measurement option in SelfCAD’s Version makes it easier for users to design more accurate models. This new version offers flexibility, as it’s possible to import, export, convert and edit from Images, SVG, and over 40 other 3D file formats. Plus, you can now create and share 3D Facebook posts from SelfCAD as well.
If you’re interested in trying out SelfCAD before you purchase it, you’re in luck – the platform is available for free on a 10 day trial basis. Afterwards, if you are satisfied with SelfCAD Version 2.0, you can purchase the online modeling software for a monthly fee of just $14.99, or pay $139.99 for an entire year’s worth of usage. If you’re a student or a teacher, use the coupon code EDUCATION to receive a generous 65% discount.
