The CP_CONVERTTO3DFORMS command has been around in CADPower for a while and was used by us internally for demos in conceptual design and planning. It was primarily meant to be a BricsCAD command to create a 3d form from 2d sections, add a floor base, a roof and apply some quick concept modeling on forms and spaces to be taken to BricsCAD BIM. The CP_CONVERTTO3DFORMS is useful for AutoCAD users as well.
This command takes open as well as closed 2d forms like lines, arcs, splines and polylines and extrudes them into a 3d geometry by giving them a height, a form (or wall) thickness.
It can also add a floor-base beneath your 3d form and a roof as well. The roof can be specified as flat or sloping. Sloping roofs can be defined by identifying a ridge for the roof that can either be drawn or picked from existing ridge lines and polylines.
When used in BricsCAD, this command provides a very quick method to create a 3d form, a shell with walls, roofs and floors. You can then use advanced 3d modeling and BIM commands in BricsCAD Platinum to fine-tune and polish your form based models created by CP_CONVERTTO3DFORMS.
