    New racebike - Koga Miyata Gents Racer Carbon, completely rebuilt with Campagnolo Chorus + Mavic Cosmic Elite and some other nice stuff.

    The Blog Station

    Looks like an almost 1:1 copy of the Nokia E7 with an mechanism which won't resist the daily (ab)use of an mobile phone.

    Maserati Fractal

    Nice sketches, but for my taste way too busy. It's very hard to recognize the shape of the car itself. I think you should keep this busy and emotional sketch style for the developement phase (and mybe for interim presentations) but add some really crisp and sharp renderings of the car for the final presentation (like the picture on your last slide).

    Ostoure - The Super-naked Bike

    Looks nice, but I have absolutely no idea how this thing should be driven (even though it's just a future concept at least these two points should be executed in a feasible way). The gasoline tank looks to high to "lie" on and the "sideskirts" look to low to drive nicely through curves. Maybe you could show a ergonomics/driving study of this bike? Greetings

    Chevrolet Sagan , Cadillac Upsurj , Buick Maelstrom

    The perspective looks as if an elephant sat on the car.

    Koss Earbuds

    Usually you don't use a 2,5mm jack for those purposes. For this application more compact plugs are being used. Have a look at Sleek Audio, Ultimate Ears, Westone, Shure etc. - but anyway, I like your sketches.

    3d Printing

    We're also working with a Objet. Precision is cool, also stability is nice. The only troublesome thing is the UV resitance.

    Illegal Racing

    Ehm, yeah.. I totally overread this stuff in the first post. That's really stupid.

    Illegal Racing

    Dude, ever heard of Audi R10 or Peugeot 908? Doesn't seem like... for example http://www.insideline.com/audi/lemans/its-...mans-racer.html I mean even the Q5 of a colleague has 300HP, 600Nm of torque and does around 250km/h (3.0 TDI - with chip).

    My new (used) one: 2006 Audi A3 sportback 2.0 TFSI quattro with S-Line package. Nice little car, wich makes a lot of fun.

    Use another HDRI with vertical lights.

    Solidworks - Iphone 3g Back

    Hey, When I'm trying to surface a body similiar to the back of the Iphone 3G (bent in all directions), I'm having the problem, that the edges always have a "dent". I tried it several times now, but I can't get them right. Two edges of the surfaces are splines. Any ideas?

    Solidworks - Iphone 3g Back

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. Any chance to get this file as a 2008 compatible version? greetings

    Solidworks - Iphone 3g Back

    Hey, I already tried this method, but as soon as you want to use smaller radii/a thinner shape you'll end up with something shown below:

    Solidworks - Iphone 3g Back

    Yep, that was also my try, but on the edges I always get those dents. Even with more guide curves i can't tame the surface.
  17. Hello, I want to generate some technical drawings in Solidworks (top, left, front etc.). Since every edge has a rouning, I end up with tons of lines in the drawings. Is there a possibility to just get the outlines/splitlines of the components? At the moment I'm erasing the lines I don't need one by one, but this is _very_ time consuming. tia Mike

    Lavender - Samsung Concept Phone [2008]

    Nice work. Just one thing: magnets and phones don't work well togehther. A magnet in the phone could lead to bad reception and could also erase credit cards etc. if carried in the same pocket/handbag (which would obviously happen, if it's a womenphone). greetings

    Generating Outlines In Solidworks (drawing)

    Ok, so I'll have to continue selecting the lines I don't want manually. @#$@#$. Thanks guys!

    Sphere Sound System

    Just some quick comments about the whole project: Tweeter, Mid and Bass use the same chassis (diameter)? wth? Why don't you just use coaxial chassis, as for example cabasse does - this would even give you the advantage of a point source. Furthermore, I don't think that there's enough volume for the bass chassis what's the diameter of the chassis? As you state in your latest post, the speakers would only be 45cm tall, so you'd have a ridiculously small subwoofer - what's the sense of this? If those speakers are that small, is there a possibility to mount them on a wall? For example next to your flatscreen? What about the wiring, where do the cables run? You make some statements in your presentation (e.g. a lage base and cover help increase depth of sound) which let me assume that you don't really have much knowledge about acoustics - true? In my eyes, if you do a project about acoustics, you should also know enough hard facts about this topic. The design itself is a good start, but needs quite some refinement to really pop (for example the connection between the base and the speaker stands etc.), also I'd advise you to increase the contrast in the presentation - the gradient in the background makes part of the speakers "drown" in the background. greetings

    Nokia Shapeshift

    Since I'm working in this sector I can tell you: Won't work. As a concept ok, but far away from being realizable.

    Solidworks Help Needed

    Hey, I'm working on a product in solidworks, but can't get a edge right - tried different approaches (lofting the surface in one piece, doing a solid loft etc.), but I can't get clean surface. could it be, that the radius is too small (4mm)?

    Solidworks Help Needed

    Thanks for your help. With a combination of the freeform tool and the surface fill I got it sooth enough, so that it won't show up in the model - for finalization we'll get an alias pro in about one week, maybe he can do it better. Anyway, i've received a model similar to the model I'm currently working on, and you won't see the "sharp" edges.

    Render Farms

    One thing: Keep in mind that if you're using a dual quad motherboard , you'll need to buy ECC ram (more expensive) and it's better to buy bigger ram modules (2gb) because of faster adressing (which wouldn't matter if you're using the machine just as a renderslave) and expandability. Whatfor the quadro? I thought you just want the machine as renderslave, you don't need a fancy grtaphics card to render, in fact a onboard graphics card is enough (I've been working for about a year on a quadcore machine with onboard graphics - and I did a LOT of rendering with maxwell on this machine). The quadro would only be good if you intend to use a lot of hardware (Open GL) shading in modelling programs, for rendering it's irrelevant. Storage: Buy two 500 (or similar) SATAII HDDs and use the in raid to backup - speedwise it won't matter if you're rendering (if you're doing a lot of video editing, then the speed would really matter). Hope this helps!

    Solidworks Help Needed

    Thanks. I can't share the file because of the strict NDAs at our company. Your approach doesn't work at my object, because the sides are being defined by splines, so I can't just delete the corner surface. I'm working on this object since one week (this is the fourth or fifth version I think and models have also been built - you don't really see the rather harsh corner in the models, but I thought that there HAS to be a better solution), and didn't manage to get a clean corner. Parel, your approach doesnt work, because I need a really defined radius at this corner. Maybe there isn't a better solution and this is just a matter of geometry?
