Air Purifier Design

Recommended Posts

Guest hotchicken

My concept is to make a purifier that has a distinguished form, from which people can see and feel the process of purifying. It's a pity that we don't have facilities to make prototype models, and there's no engineering support ;)

 

any comments and critics welcomed!

thanks

i use cinema 4d for rendering. I think any software would do

 

 

I just tried to use a different structure. It's like a vacum, and the fan is at the center. The air is drawn from the rim of the top and goes through the filter which is at the upper part of the body, and then goes out from the side

this pic is not very illustrative. I'll draw a pic tommorow if I have time

How did you do that really close up rendering with the focusing effect?

very beautiful !!

 

maybe the yellow globe needs a few more Poligons (or more Antialiasingon the transparent shell)

 

pretty good how you insetted the buttons and the black surface!!

 

are you using a displacement-map ore boole for this?

the modeling is almost finished in rhino3d, including the buttons. the ball is made in cinema4d

no displacement maps, just color and alpha maps used

Hi. I have a dehumidfier at home (similar to an air purifier). Your design looks have the look of something that can purify air. Very nice looking. However, upon close inspection, your design looks something like a mix between a small trash bin and a toilet sit (no offence).

Regarding the shape of your water bin. For my air purifier, I have to empty the water bin 2x a day: that is about 60 times a month. ( so I really pay attention to how the water bin is shaped) It is inconvinient to empty my water bin because it a big box-shaped container. By the look of your water bin design, i can only imagine how difficult it would be empty the water in YOUR bin without getting water everywhere.

 

but nice renderings. ;)

ok... i'm kinda getting confused.

 

Is this a air purifier? Dehumidier? or Humidifier?

 

As for the design itself. It looks small and portable but still can't tell which is which.

 

Also, who is your customer and who are you trying to market too. This is a question you have to design for so if you could answer this, then your design should fit into who your target client.
