Autocad thread.

Hello guys! I just started learning furniture modeling/blueprinting and I was wondering if you vould give me some insights on what I should learn to get ahead fast. Can you give me free sites from where I can fownload projects or some books I could read?

Thank you.

Just do what everyone does and steal models from Russian sites...who in turn steal from Chinese sites...who in turn steal from everyone else.

Furniture design is not done in cad(i'd imagine, no experience), but rather is sculpted/modelled, then you transfer and make realistic proportions in cad as well as building blueprints. You can of course design in cad(sw,inventor are the most widespread and used 3d cad), but it's a pain in the ass as everything is mathematically bound, curves, etc.
I have experience in cad, I bet I could make a manufacturing process for this(your picture), even though I don't understand wood bending.
For making the manufacturing process you need to understand how something is done fully. You need to know and understand woodworking(drilling, milling, cutting, bending), you need to understand wood byproducts(mdf, osb, plywood) and how to work them, they are mostly milled, you need to understand wood jointery, sewing, furniture elastics, where to hide materials, how pillows work in a chair or sofa, how to use foam for filler, gluing, etc. You need that knowledge to be able to create any furniture's manufacturing process.
Be aware, though, if you learn making nice furniture, from expensive materials and start working in a company that does modern mdf/osb furniture you'll be disappointed in your work and job. Most modern furniture is made so that costs are very low and you'll have to cheap out on your own engineering skills and try to make something bad on purpose, the damnation of modern engineering.
Sorry to break your dreams, but the real world sucks ass.

could you help me in the actual cad thread please?

If you want to make stuff like pic related, don't fucking use AutoCAD. It's slow, runs like ass, and looks terrible. Try solidworks, it's much easier to model in and cut blueprints from.

OP here.

Thank you for the information.
As I stated in the original post, I need to learn the blueprinting and technically accurate side of furniture design. I chose that picture only because it's furniture. Also, my future employer asks for autocad, even though there might be much better platforms to use.

Can you please point me to one such site? Or at least give me some keywords. Thank you!

Get rid of Autocad and get into Fusion 360

Can you easly import projects from solidworks and fusion 360 to autocad? Hows the compatibility?
>>
>>637540
bro why do you want to import or use autocad? Tf? get rid of that shit-tier boomer software
>>
>>637555
Because some stone age architects and furniture designs like to do "detailing" like pic related. This has no value at all for manufacturing nowadays.

>>637540
You can export detail drawings from both.
