Title: Make it look like hand drawings?
Post by: natethecabinetguy on May 23, 2018, 12:37:47 PM
I've seen blueprints and architectural drawings that looked like they were hand drawn, but I'm wondering if they were actually drawn using a CAD program.  It is a really cool look.  I draw simple 3D kitchen designs, and to me they look a little too crisp.

Is there a way to make your 3D drawings look hand drawn (but expertly hand drawn) in TurboCAD 21 Deluxe?
Thanks,
Nate

I don't have 21 Deluxe, but I believe the rendering options are the same as with 21 Pro Platinum.

Right-click on the Model space and then right-click again on Advanced Rendering.

Under Rendering Type, select LightWorks.
Under Category, select Sketch.
Under Render Style, start experimenting with the options to see if there's anything you want to use.

It's maybe quicker access to the render properties with Ctrl+Alt+C.

LightWorks returns as the default rendering engine for version 2018.

TurboCAD Deluxe does not have the "Sketch" rendering options found in the Pro "Advanced Rendering" section (LightWorks). If you have decent image editor, such as Paint Shop Pro, you could probably edit a screen shot. PSP has a multitude of “Effects”.

The Gimp is a good option if you don't have an image editor yet.

Try this and see if you like it: Render in Lightworks Smooth OpenGL, with "Renderable objects" and "Suppress hidden line" enabled.
