Explore our modeling ideas and hints across Project X booklet that will be sure to inspire your own creation! Unlock your imagination and become a master of turning X into reality!
The booklet will provide you parts and 2D engineering drawings of Project X, stages, and hits for generating each part of Project X, info about changing appearance and renderings.
We will help you to adjust the appearance of your own Project X, to create renderings using Photo View 360 in SOLIDWORKS, to adjust the size and quality of your render as well as saving your rendering as JPEG or PNG in order to be able to present your work!
