Log 2 - Proof of Concept

A project log for [CAD Software] Concept Sketching in 3D

To produce an quick to learn CAD software for quick concept sketching in 3D space, think sketching your ideas on a napkin in 3d.

OK hopefully log 3 can explain everything I'm intending to do with this and what the actual purpose of this idea is, for now though, I've gotten a program working that shows roughly a working idea.

The idea is to allow the user to create translucent sheets parallel to the camera view, sketch on them like any traditional 2d drawing software such as like krita or sketch book pro, then position these sheets in 3d space, move the camera view and create more sheets to sketch on to form a full 3d concept, after which all the sketch sheets can be rendered invisible so that only the drawn design remains visible.The aim of the program is to ease the dificulty of penning your idea's to paper ( digital paper in this case), with many CAD software difficult to learn or containing too many features your never going to use or otherwise being too expensive, the aim of this software is to make it quick and easy to produce three dimensional concept designs with no hassle.

this ends log 2, I just wanted to post an update to show that there is a possibility of being able to make this idea real, I'm a long way off having a truly working program, but as soon as I do, I intend to release it free and after a while depending if there is interest, I'll release the source code.
