Tutorial How To Shrink GIFs For GrabCad

21 5 Beginner
I have seen some tutorials about shrinking GIF's with great results, using GIMP, for example. But none of them works for posting on GrabCad, because the resulting GIF is not compliant. This method only reduces the number of colors (from 256), with smaller size compression but 100% compliant. I have been using this for a while without any problems.

How to make 3D posts of your models on Facebook

17 3 Beginner
Facebook has just updated their new feature that enables 3D viewing in posts... This feature has been around for some time, but the new update supports the industry-standard glTF 2.0 file format. This allows us to share 3D content on Facebook, whichever the designing software used was. Here I'll show you how to turn your 3D files into GLB, the only extension Facebook reads till now. By the way, GLB file format is a binary form of glTF that includes textures instead of referencing them as external images, so don't worry about the output's quality.

How to export a SolidWorks part/assembly as a 3D PDF file

9 2 Beginner
Sending 3D models to others for viewing can be a problem if they don't have a 3D designing software (SolidWorks, Catia, AutoCAD, etc.) or a 3D viewing software (eDrawings, Paint 3D, etc.). So here I'll show you how to export your model (part/assembly) as a 3D PDF file, where you can view your model as any 3D viewing software does. This doesn't just include viewing, but also includes simple rendering, showing/hiding parts, adding extra lighting and a lot more.
