Creating Three Models
I made these three:
classic iPhone 5 (s)
decoration metal pig
Honda car key
I was looking for anything I have which could be made into models, and I found this 'ancient' phone I used many years ago. Classic design, (which is basically a longer version of iPhone4S) and in my opinion, which is still a good UI/UX for a smart phone even for today.
The whole process is actually very pleasing and easier than I thought, I think that's partly because of the few dimensions it has got. I also cheated a little bit, since I found a dimension drawing of it online. Generally speaking, from CADing it I could really feel the elegant design spirit of Apple products.
a little bit process
Honda car key:
This one is the first model I made for this week's practice. It's actually quite complicated, consider its small size.
I tried different methods to achieve the shapes I wanted, like tapered extrusion or interact combine. In the end I inserted a Honda SVG logo to its back to finish this model. I still, kind of like it as my first model, as this is also the key which I kept, of my first car.
I didn't have scale cheat sheet for this one, so I measured each data manually
Some new methods I have tried..
small pig table decoration:
As a round, little pig, it needed to be 'filleted' at every intersection. Also I used some different angles of construction planes around its rounded, cute body to create different centered shapes.
making sure it can stand stable on a surface
