How to render a PC build?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, could anyone tell me how to render a PC build? I have great concern for the aesthetics of my build, and I think this is the best way to plan how I would like it to be For anyone who has done this already, do I need any experience of doing this, or could I just download layouts of PC components and load it on AutoCAD? Here is a pic for reference.

I'm not sure if there is a fast and easy way to create that kind of render, but I have been planning out my new build in full using CAD and it’s not that hard to do - especially if you do have some experience using this kind of software. I wouldn’t bother doing it if what you’re thinking of creating is something relatively conventional, but personally I've found working through the detail of my build ideas in CAD very helpful and quite enjoyable in itself.

You can get ready-made CAD models for some components direct from the manufacturer, which can then be imported into whatever program you prefer and used in planning your build. I know Koolance.com has part models for some of its products (under the files tab on the relevant page) which are in a standard format and usable by most CAD programs. You might also try searching for a particular component on GrabCAD.com, to see if someone else has done the hard work for you and already modelled it. Making up part models yourself (for any component you can’t find or anything that is bespoke) is a bit more involved; largely depending on whether there are dimensioned drawings available and in how much detail you wish to model the build.

Hope this helps.
