My first 3D drawing

This is my first render using Deluxe 2017, as a carpenter decided to draw a 3D model of an actual residential rough frame (stick frame as we call it) then render the house as it would look finished.

Thanks everyone,  I draw mostly in 2D for side jobs I do, but thought I give the 3D a try, I have the concept of putting a house together, so that was the easy part, drawing in 3D was a big challenge as I had to research what purpose each tool serves, still have alot to learn.

By the way it took me 3 months to do this project, can't grasp the lighting and still learning the materials section, I see renders in this forum that are amazing hope to achieve that quality someday.

 Well done Bernie, how long did it take you to draw the framework,  and what method of construction did you use. I know in other CAD programs this can done automatically but in TurboCAD it must be done manually. I would be interested to know.

Hi Bob, it took about month to do the frame work, you are correct that there is no automatic way of doing so as far as I know, I started with basic floor plan in 2d,  everything was created from scratch, drew the trusses in 2D then extruded to size then created a blocks as to keep file size small, did the same for the studs, the rake wall studs were of random size place the trusses in position then used slice by line to fit under gables and scissor trusses, porch rafters and over frames were also of random size applied slice by work plane so they sit on trusses, linear copy and 3D slice tools were used quite alot also work plane by three points.

As you stated all done in manual, but I learned alot about how to put these tools to work for me, hope this answers your question.

Yes Bernie a good way to learn TC but not all that productive if producing plans for a living. Softcad and other cad software will produce a complete roof and wall frame automatically. I don't need to produce framing in my line of work so TC fit the bill ok. Maybe TC will have this feature one day.

You could save trusses and framing sections as symbols so you could drop them into other drawings in the future, I do, saves a lot of time.
