Modelling A Hand Drill

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be good to get everyone interested in involved in some modleing challenge.

 

I tried it(Drill) couple of times and consider it as great field for surfacing practice.

 

I would like to invite everybody to "give a chance" following drill example

to narrow the scope of this enterprise, the core of modeling - IMO - sould focus on main body and battery "foot" holder.

 

Let`s rock it.

while making beautiful outlook, don't forget :

 

center of gravity (if it's in wrong position, user will feel tired to hold it horizontally)

handle angle (when the drill axis is horizontal)

handle shape & size (foreigner's hand is bigger than asian's; shape often determined by physical prototype)

drill chunk is in standard size

housing should have enough space for electric motor & the switch (their sizes are dependent with rated power)

housing should have enough air holes for heat exchange of the electric motor

battery is common in shape and exchangable for other applications, e.g. circular saw...if it has been used in other application, we should keep it unchanged

thx for input but my intention was not to develop a drill, but start some modeling challenge, similar to those Ragde did before

i think u did in solidworks... open edges inside the curve creates improper outer surface breakeage... i had similar problem... it happens :D you need to correct the curve you selected or close the surface edge curves...

Hi Tur, it's hard to see what's happening in the area you highlighted, can you please turn on zebra stripes (and zoom in a bit). It just looks like a reflection to me.

Here is the pics. What is the good modeling techniques to connect profiles like circles

and triangles or rectangles!? There is kind of tension when profile going from circle to

fillets... If the centers of circle and rectangle coincident, then it's less problematic, but if there

is excenterical distance... it's problem for me...

This "fading corner "- problem has been discussed before. ( e.g. on the I-phone thread )

... search the Forum !

I still can't find good solution for smooth tangential transition for this part (see example).

Please advice...
