DesignWorkshop Lite 1.8

A simple-to-use application that helps users design 3D models by inserting different objects, embedding text messages, and adding materials
DesignWorkshop Lite is a software application that helps users design 3D models in an intuitive working environment.

It sports a clean and straightforward interface that offers quick access to the preset objects that can be inserted in the board.

DesignWorkshop Lite comes packed with various components, such as circles, lines, rectangles, and others. What’s more, you can embed text messages (which can be customized in terms of font style, size and number), create various drawings with the use of a pencil, as well as erase any unnecessary adjustments.

The application enables users to rotate the selected objects, move the working area to different angles, and zoom in or out. The objects can be moved by simply dragging and dropping into the desired perimeter, or entering the coordinates in a dedicated dialog manually.

Furthermore, DesignWorkshop Lite gives users the possibility to change the size of the object, and add a name, phase (e.g. vegetation, structure, roofs, people, vehicles), and material (e.g. glass, metal, floor, stone).

Other important features worth mentioning give you the possibility to scale, cut, copy, or paste the selected objects, show background grids, align objects, specify the sun direction, brighten or dim the model lights, and switch to a full screen mode for a better focus on your work.

Plus, you can import information from DXF or PICT files, and pick a background image for the working area with the following formats: BMP, JPG, GIF, PCX, PNG, TIF, or PICT.

When it comes to exporting options, you can save the generated project to 2D (PICT, DXF) or 3D formats (DXF).

All things considered, DesignWorkshop Lite comprises limited features for helping you design 3D models and is suitable especially for less experienced users who can set up the entire process with minimum effort.
