What is bonzai3D?

It is a true 3D program with powerful 3D modelling tools from the Smarttec eStore, spline based surface, solid modelling ( great for 3D Printers ), and inbuilt file translation formats that make it a perfect day to learn modelling program that when teamed with other renderers available – RenderZone and Maxwell Render Suite 2.6 now produce high quality imaging.

Why use Sketchup Pro when you can use a true 3D modeller with more features- yet still imports .skp file format as components or full models.

It also provides a path to enhanced rendering modules and the high end formZ 7 package currently in FREE open public beta testing.

How to make a Sliced Solid and Wireframe rendering in bonzai3D – by Evan Troxel

Wireframe render section

Here’s an example of one of those stylistic renderings of 3d models where there’s a combination of solid and wireframe halves coming together at a section cut in the model. I’ve been doing this type of rendering for a long, long time1 and I thought I’d make a video showing you how to do it too. It’s a fairly easy process that involves your 3d modeling program and an image editor like Photoshop.

Once again, this is one of those things you can do in several different modelers but it’s one of the reasons I prefer working with solid models in Bonzai3d because when you cut through the model, the objects are automatically filled and the Clipping Planes make it easy to make this kind of imagery.

Now it’s your turn. I’d love to see what you can come up with. Maybe you can take it to the next level and make a sweeping, organic section cut through the model to make it even more dynamic.
