VideoCAD has an opportunity of 3D modeling video surveillance scenes using constructions and 3D models distributed with the program.

 

The distribution kit of VideoCAD includes several most relevant 3D models for CCTV design. Though the standard package tends to be enough for accomplishing most of tasks, there may appear a need for library supplement.

 

Any 3D models and scenes which can be opened in SketchUp or Autodesk 3ds Max can be added to the VideoCAD library.

 

For exporting 3D models to VideoCAD the Free SketchUp version is suitable. http://sketchup.com/

 

Lots of 3D models can be downloaded from Internet for free https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/

You can also create models and scenes in Google SketchUp or Autodesk 3ds Max independently.

 

Import 3D models is supported by VideoCAD Starter II, VideoCAD Lite and VideoCAD Professional versions. It is not supported by VideoCAD Starter version.

 

We offer two special packages for importing 3D models into VideoCAD.
