DesignWorkshop Machines Online
The DesignWorkshop® Online Machines are a family of free web-based 3D modeling utilities for DesignWorkshop users.

These unique machines provide specialized model-making functions for enhancement of DesignWorkshop 3D design, modeling and presentation projects.

Using server-based 3D transformation engines created by Artifice, these functions are available 24 hours daily over the World-Wide Web.


Tree Machine

Use this machine to instantly create and download your own custom trees and tree-like plants for DesignWorkshop, with as much or little detail as your project calls for.

Lathe Machine

Use this machine to create your own DesignWorkshop lathed solid object based on a DesignWorkshop polyline.

Lofting Machine

Use this machine to create complex and free-form DesignWorkshop solid objects based on a set of DesignWorkshop polyline profiles, including boats and airplanes, furniture, hyperbolic paraboloids, people, tensile fabric shapes, free sculpture, and more.

Grid Terrain Machine

Use this machine to create your own DesignWorkshop triangulated terrain models based on a grid of elevation data points.

Contour Machine

Use this machine to create your own DesignWorkshop triangulated terrain models and other solid objects based on a set of contour polylines.

Merge Machine

Use this machine to merge several separate solid objects into one compound object.

Snake Machine

Use this machine to make your own DesignWorkshop snakes, weird multi-facted objects which are useful as a starting point for reshaping into other complex solid forms.

Tune-up Machine

Use this machine to automatically diagnose and correct occassional problems with DesignWorkshop standard model files.

UVW Machine

Use this specialized technical machine to add UVW values to imported objects in DesignWorkshop standard model files, so the objects can be manipulated in appropriate Arbitrary Working Orientations. Useful for instance for extruding the triangles into solids for an imported wireframe geodesic dome.
