does anyone have advanced surfacing models that they can share with me ? What I am looking for is advanced models of sprey guns, or hand drills, electric shavers, anyhting complex that involves some heavy thinking and surfacing
I would contact Matthew Perez. He is pretty good with surfacing complex models.
Take a look at this thread he started.
Also, a shame I am not at my old job because I did surface model a hand drill.
thank you.. I sent him a freind request and a note asking for advanced models. If you come across anyhting, can you please let me know ?
Hey Dan, i dont have any models that I can send you of those things unfortunately. Have you looked on 3d content central? Is there a certain thing you are looking to learn? I have done several videos on molded part design considerations if that is the type of thing you are looking to learn.
Here are a couple more that might help.
You might also want to contact Charles Culp. He does a lot of surfacing as well.
Ask him for his robot.
Maybe check here:
I've got loads of this stuff, and just finished another one yesterday--but I can't share them.
Matt Lombard has some discussions and user-submissions on this topic from time to time:
I also forgot there was a forum called Product Design Forum(or something like that). It got hacked awhile back and dropped everyones account so i havent been back on it but Ragde ( i think thats right) had a bunch of solidworks tutorials on there with surfacing and product design. I think most of it was on bottles but there was a video game controller i think.
Yeah, it just made me re-register. I hadn't been there for a while. The SW tutorial I remember was for a computer mouse.
so what does the computer mouse look like ? can you attach the actual model on here ?
I havent drawn in dan. The tutorial was made by someone else. Here is a link to the forum.
Dan, i found a hand drill on GrabCAD. It might be worth you checking out grabCAD and see what models interest you. Not all of them are solidworks models but there are several.
Hi Matthew.. I saw tyhat too and looked at it. Unfortunetly the majority of these files are either step, or iges and not solidworks. I am hoping to find solidworks files so I can roll them back and see how they were surfaced.
Thank you though
Mark Biasotti's presentations all have models in them:
