Week2: Computer-Aided Design


1. model (raster, vector, 2D, 3D, render, animate, simulate, ...) a possible final project
2. compress & post the images and videos on my page


PIXLR “raster”

it is an Online Photo Editor that lets you edit photos and create great designs right in your browser for Free. It useful for photo editing for quick edits, and beginners because it is easy to master.

I used it for fast background removal & resize the image to compress the size of the image file as shown bellow


Snipping Tool

Snipping Tool is a Microsoft Windows screenshot utility. It can take still screenshots allows for basic image editing of the snapshot, with different colored pens, an eraser, and a highlighter. then be saved as an image file or an MHTML file, or e-mailed.

I use this tool for most of my documentation because it allows me to specify the snapshot of an open window, rectangular areas, a free-form area, or the entire screen.


GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP)

GIMP is a cross-platform image editor provides you with sophisticated tools needed for high quality image manipulation. From retouching to restoring to creative composites to get your job done. Also it can change its source code and distribute your changes.

I used it to make the sticker them for my project “WAVE” I used the Arabic translation of wave and start creating my design then save it as (PNG) to insure that it is in high quality & the background is transparent, GIMP gives me the power and flexibility to transform images into truly unique creations. As shown below.



Paint 3D

Paint 3D is a 2D “vector” & 3D combined tools It allows you to create creative projects using 2D and 3D tools requires no design experience to use.

2D drawings are created with tools that include a marker, calligraphy pen, oil brush, spray can, and eraser. Depending on what tool you choose to use, you can select its color, its style, thickness, or opacity, and add different textures. It's also easy to make your canvas see-through by enabling the toggle for transparent canvas.

I used it to crop my icon imaged used in my website


3D models can be generated from its built-in library or create designs from scratch. It's easy to become a 3D artist by easy 3D image creation and editing, Fun and extremely customizable predefined models & Realistic textures

I enjoyed playing around with the different effects possible in Paint 3D to create fun artworks such as a happy fish


Fusion 360

Fusion 360 enables you to design effortlessly with flexible 3D CAD software.

I used it to make a spinner shaped as flower.

Also I design a 3D model of my final project with steps shown in the video
