    So I don't know if this is the best place to put this, but its about scenery and we don't have a CAD forum that I saw.

    Anyways, I was wondering if anyone has tried to model 3D rocks in Vectorworks and if those people might have any tips before I waste a few days trying. I'm referring to small caves and cliffs and random rocks sitting on stage, very seaside quarry style, if that makes sense.

    I was thinking about just building a 3D scanner, but I wanted to give it a shot in Vectorworks first if possible, otherwise I will probably just make a foam model and scan it in later. But as I said I wanted to try it in Vectorworks first.

    Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Building rocks in SketchUp isn't all that hard, but I've never done anything in Vectorworks.
    In reference to building a 3D scanner... have you seen this??
    Video of how-to and it has link to all the free/open source software for operation

    Might give it a shot in sketch up too then, never really gave that much of a try yet.

    And yep, that was exactly what I was referring to.

    Sketchup is a fabulous, easy to use, and FREE program. Give it a try!
