Wow - amazing work Shon! perhaps you can discribe your process a bit.
After casting, clip of stones and oxygenating
That's pretty sick!

why it is sick? don't understand.
That is a complement... :-) Kevin really likes your work.
Would be nice if you would post one of your models one of these days. That way the rest of us could learn from you.
Anna Hi. Possibly I don't understand some expressions in English, I am glad that you like works. Unfortunately on them I give on an hour in day in in view of a lack of time - generally rings, earrings that is necessary for customers is so to speak a hobby. These models are sold and unfortunately by agreement of the parties I have no right to lay out them. I can make according to the photo to order.
People see Jesus in their pancakes, they see Jesus in paint dripping from a wall, now we can say we see Jesus in our SolidWorks and we're not insane because, it's like, t-r-u-e.
Kevin, In metal looks much better. :-) Virtually well, and after molding and processing....
Create an example on your own to show us how it is done.
Wow... Just Wow... Not sure if SW development team could visualize what would be done with their software
Here one of functions on which almost all molding of geometry in sw though there are more many other magic functions is based. And the same desirable change of geometry of a body can be made different functions and to receive almost same result.
You can most explain to me - at your forum is many honored experts and the SW developers. Why they don't carry out these researches as how it is possible to make in this SW software product?
Sometimes there is a feeling that made the software product and up to the end didn't understand that it is possible to create in it :-)
Thanks for sharing....
We all come from different backgrounds and each have various talents that we bring to the forum. Some, like you, have discovered some of the more ingenious ways to get SolidWorks to create the shapes they want. By sharing what you have learned we all gain new knowledge on what is possible with SolidWorks. For many of us who work with simple blocks, cylinders and spheres it helps to have examples of techniques for creating organic shapes. It is a mindset and vision that is very different for many users here in their day to day work.
I am sure people are using SolidWorks in many ways the developers have never imagined was possible. That is the cool thing about the creative mind we humans have.
Appreciate you sharing you model. It gives us insight into what techniques you are using. I can see your work is elegant in its simplicity of creation.
You have a keen eye for the artistic side of geometry creation in SolidWorks.
who is it? the project isn't finished yet
Matrona of Moscow – orthodox sacred, having a wonderful creation gift from the birth.
All her life became an example of a great spiritual feat of love, patience, self-renunciation and compassion. People came for the help to the mother for tens of kilometers with the diseases, alarms, griefs.
The flow of pilgrims to be put to its sacred relics, does not run low and today.
I'm just wondering if you do this for fun or get paid for it?
The GREAT is back all I can say is wow, loved your work in the past and this is really really good, thanks for sharing
All I can say if anyone is watching from SolidWorks Corp, (other than the moderators.), but the moderators can pass it along, would ya guy's...
I would vote for Shon Owl getting a free trip to SWW 2017 and highlighting his ability of taking SW to the next level.
Where is a petition form to fill out....
I hate to yell and type all caps but here is one time...
SPREAD THE WORD - people - See Nominee - For a Free all Paid Trip To SolidWorks World 2017 - Spread the Word
Christian Chu . The main work is connected a little with other design and technologies of processing of products. At the moment this my favourite hobby.
We could all vote for this in the SW top 10 list.
That would get some attention, I'm personally not on subscription which takes me out of participating in the Top 10, but sure would get some attention if it's turned into a unanimous vote from the users.
I know there are a lot of people doing crazy stuff with SW and I had the opportunity to participate myself and I guess when you experience the VIP escorting etc, you want to share it with someone else and what other surfacing project takes your breath away like what Shon Owl just shared, anybody that has used SW for a long time has to acknowledge this is truly a work of Surfacing Art........
I have done enough surfacing to be very dangerous, and yes his stuff is fantastic!
I know there are others out there no doubt that could do this, but think of the time and dedication along with the perfection, how about it Paul Salvador
Hi Shon, I think this is fantastic work ... have you ever considered Power Surfacing for this? I know that organic surfacing by drawing curves can be very time consuming.
I have a power surfacing license and agreed it'd reduce ton of time modeling
the bad side about power surfacing is lacking of features tree which it's hard to keep track what you've been doing for modifications
One day, you look back your model and have no idea how it'd been done
I agree with you there, its certainly a trade off.
Incremental saving can help a bit, so without a feature tree, its still possible to review the history, although to a less ideal extent.
Very nice work Shon!
..although as a atheist.. raised catholic.. this imagery may manifest into some bazaar midnight nun nightmare!?
Hi Chris. I nevere to use Powersurfasing. standard methods of construction quite approach for all.
Last Face of the Saint Matron Moscow. The prophetess is also strongly esteemed in Russia.
Here is the link
some pro/con but overall I like it !
From design to a product
it is a little for lovely ladies)
Thanks, I tried to test this product. it seemed to me that system trebovaniyavelik and creation parametrization is lost. The last is especially important.
The original in the Parisian museum of decorative creativity "Broshe-Salamander" Emile Froment Meurice 1870.
Francis I Valois's emblem - a salamander on fire is also placed on walls of Château de Blois.
Rune of Celts. designating force also gives it to the person who carries her.
When you built your model from Jesus image, how you came up with the depth in your 3D model?
proportions and the rule of creation of a relief though it is quite subjective. I think there has to be an understanding of height of elements for each case. And quality of study which depends on product dimensions. I think you agree with me.
what process you used to make this ring?
For this product - the design which is thought up. therefore it is difficult to describe process (both has wanted - and has made).
As a rule there is a sketch or a certain task, restriction on weight. Check on technological effectiveness (if it is necessary to make a press form) and coordination of final design with the customer.
Approach as well as in any business, knowledge of manufacturing techniques of voskovka, casting, processing. As well as when writing programs for processing by milling: selection of the tool, knowledge of the processing conditions, and the exact technique of processing to sustain the sizes and to get in the admission and the requirement of the drawing. Than now I am also engaged)
And it is more special that you designed the ring.
This stuff is just simply mind-blowing! I tip my hat to you Shon.
You're thinking - "I thought my engine was hard"
Also know if you work in Solid, then you will be able quite to give the darling an unforgettable gift of characteristic projection...
Sort of pale's in comparison to what Shon's achieving doesn't it John? lol
This is awesome!!!!!
Nestoa hats. It will be pleasant to see from you such works. It will be pleasant to me.
There is definitely nothing in my portfolio of work so far that would bring joy to you, trust me! I can only dream of doing the calibre of work that you have. Early days for me my friend.
Basically, it's just based on your art instinct to make the model looks right?
I've tried to help my son to model some dinosaurs for his junior high project and it's super hard even though with a help of power surfacing
I've been using SolidWorks for quite awhile now, and long before I got into SolidWorks I completed an art degree in metal design. So, I like to think I know what I'm talking about when I say that both your SolidWorks and your finished pieces are VERY well done. Please keep posting your work here on the forum, it's very inspiring.
Thanks, I try
Very nice Shon.
The same cross as well as on a crown was necessary
same ring for girl
It is a little geometrichka without surfaces)
It is a little more Christian subject in products. Unfortunately the customer did not send the photo of a product in metal to me.
I'm not a religious person by any means Shon, but they are both nice pieces nonetheless. Well done.
Religion here only in respect of work. Customer's wish))))
This ring without р eligiozny implication. Chromdiopside of green color bought a stone and today I take away casting. Shank yellow gold, a top with a stone from white. I will show in metal soon.
One of examples as it is possible to cross Poser to SW. There is a nuance - it is necessary to reduce quantity of triangles that SW swallowed this in memory. Naturally more simply and easier on resources consumptions to make it in SW.
How long would something like that take you to model Shon?
Everything depends on complexity. In the jewelry industry in a month from 20 to 60 products (taking into account manufacturing techniques of a clip and processing). For the designer's profession time frames it is more since except geometry and technology much more parameters and calculations at design are necessary.
My casting ready to processing and clip of gem
That's pretty cool.....
Thanks Dave, it was necessary to process handles traces from an outgrowth of SolidScape and a formomassa, to attach the laser and to fix.
These are amazing!
Ring with ornaments
A very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones also Shon.
Thanks Dave. At us celebrate since December 31 for January 1)))) all difference between engineers of the different countries.
The project in metal
Very nice work Shon.
Just first letter of the alphabet
China according to the license of Japan. it is possible to work))))
Sorry, but what is it Shon?
... a Mazak CNC?
Oh! Is it
Yes Mazak 530.
Looks beautiful but I can't figure out the way to make it - Must be hand detail work???
Plastic printer then mold process
Must be a special mold process as I see undercuts everywhere?
Jewelry is a lot of hand work, there are pictures on the forum where Shon shows the process a bit..
I'ts my bad habit to question myself how thing is made each time I see something
it's a return as couple days ago I played tennis with my son and he asked me how they make tennis ball and I said "to be honest with you, I have no idea"
I'll second that sentiment !!!!
Монограммы христа (символ) — Мегаэнциклопедия Кирилла и Мефодия — статья
Always nice to see Shon.
If possible, please post the finished photo's of this one as I'd be interested to see them.
Dave, I Will try.
Shon, you need to write a paper on this and let SW show your work, it's amazing.
Just a quick question. In the first of those last two shots, what is the slot on the inside of the ring for?
Hi Jim. selection (cavity) for weight decrease)))
Reminds me of my poor student days. Most of us could only afford silver (if that). It was way cheaper than gold, but still dear on a student budget. Any sawing, filing or sanding was done over a clean bench and when we were done we would carefully sweep up and save the "sawdust". When we'd accumulated enough we would refine it (along with the failed projects) for reuse. It always surprised beginners how much fine silver emerged from their pile of "dirt".
A little bit and a little bit there all adds up. Whether it's weight, cost, or both you're worried about.
What do you want?
