I currently work as a freelance industrial designer. In my free time, I create 3D models of objects that I already own so that I can gather deeper insight on their form.
This is a Polaroid camera I own, recreated in Fusion 360. This project showed me how something can be more than the sum of its parts. When handling the actual camera, it feels and operates like such a simple piece of equipment, but when I was creating the model, I realized it was far from it. Many times, the best design is the kind you don't notice.
This is a Solidworks model of a flower vase. I enjoyed this model as I always enjoy the simplicity that is found in seemingly complicated forms. Also, after studying geodesic shapes in the past, it was enjoyable to see for myself how they are made.
This is a model of a 5.10 climbing shoe. I wanted to see what the shoe looks like once I stripped away most of the leather, leaving the climbing rubber and velcro straps. I wanted to know what was necessary to a climbing shoe, and what was not. Model made using Rhino.
