1 pointI am a product designer from the Netherlands and started a blog section where I will share new developments along design and technology, applied to product design. There is now a first article about 3D printing. Upcoming are posts about materials, composites, drones and footwear design. https://designsoulblog.wordpress.com
1 pointDear Friends: Here we are again for the April 2007 3D Modeling Challenge. This time, thanks to friend Daan, we are going to have a "double" challenge: One Advanced and the Regular one. For those who feel that can deal with the Advanced Item, then go On!.(Start right away!). THE REGULAR CHALLENGE MODEL WILL BE THE NUMBER 2. For the mouse here's the layout file supplied by Daan... http://www.it.fnt.hu.nl/~pde/files/Files%2...e_layout.SLDPRT See you, and... Good Modeling!!
1 pointContinue tweaking the CV's to try and match the top profile. Now I go in and start tweaking some of the CV's on the rear face to scuplt the back surface. This is where I decide to stop (for times sake) but in a real modelling experiment this is where you can start to evaluate your surface, decide if you like where its going, and if you've messed up too bad just go back to the beginning and start again - the nice part about working quickly is you can rapidly scuplt your surface and if you decide you don't like it starting over only means losing 5 minutes of work. In almost any real world project you'll probably model the same geometry at least half a dozen times, however each time your surface will wind up cleaner because you'll learn where you have too much or not enough geometry for manipulation. It's scupltural objects like this where Alias can really start to shine. Base surface finished and ready for detailing.
