Logitech MX 1000 looks amazing indeed.

 

I invest some effort to build some pretty simple surface model regarding it.

 

I noticed Mcgreq did a nice job, however IMO the nose/fonrt part is still disaimed.

 

and Yes, it requires a lot of effort to have this done pretty accurate.

obtaining the proper nose part only fot he one view/projection is pretty straight forward

however having proper curve layout in the second view could make it PIA. Without a long curve layout tweaking this will be hard to hit with an only 5 minutes long modeling

Hi muadib3d. Could you post your SW file? Thanks

 

That's a Pro/e file. Muadib3d is representing the PTC clan.

right in the target

 

as kimocal said - no SW data. Done in Pro/E WF 2.0. Just as real one(those Logitech mice are developed in Pro/E!)

 

I bought broken one in Allegro(similar to Ebay), and tried to recreate it form that. There are some areas really hard to address. Any way, I am keep going...

I'm proficient with Pro/E too. If it's possible for you I want to study your model. Thx

actually you will find that no development is done in 3d! the logitech mice are done by a dublin design company called Design Partners and only once the form has been completely decided on using old school methods such as foam models and sketches etc is it put into the computer!

Here was my try at it. Solidworks and Vray. Very difficult, I must have started over 3 or 4 times. I don't remember how long it took, I did it about a year ago but completely forgot that it was for this challenge! Bad thing is, I tried it again right after I finished this one and couldn't duplicate it or get consistent results. Maybe I'll try it again now that some time has passed.

that is really cool Skinny

 

I can feel the amount of time/effort spent on this "project". Really impresive.

 

However - IMO - the nose part is not yet accurate.

According to introduced pictures I assume You create rear part first from 3 curves and next front part?
