I'm creating some gates for a farm shed located in Brazil, and I'm also trying to give some context to the future renderings, so I'm trying to replicate the actual building to learn how to use Draft and Arch Workbench better, even that I do not work with concrete or bricks structures in reality.
My objective is to recreate a BIM (or something related
) version of the existing shed to later include the gates I'm doing in a assembly2 (or maybe assembly3...) environment and render the whole thing.
The concrete structures were initially modeled with sketches and converted to arch structures, but at some moment, the column cuts sketches lost their references and became crazy (really...). Luckly the 3d geometry wasn't affected, so I used draft elements to create it again using the now dead original structure. All cold formed steel beams on the roof were modeled using sketches for positioning and the Frame and Beams Workbench. Draft arrays then made most of the work. As a stupid test I created the roof using arch panels and almost melt my computer, but after all it worked. Part Mirror was used to get the other side of the building covered as I failed to use draft mirror in 3D.
All work was done in FreeCAD 0.17, using mostly Windows 10 x64 but at some moments using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS x64.
I couldn't manage to add the images inside this post for better describe it.
