If you already know me, then you know how passionate I am about visualization. I'd rather show my work than talk about it. I'll be posting recent renderings for design reviews and product examples. Comments, questions, feedback are all appreciated.
One thing I would recommend is to keep your images to about 700-740 wide (the image below is 700 pixels wide) so that they fit neatly inside the page width.
In this project I am collaborating with a person using SolidWorks. I am modeling the HVAC (aka mechanical) and Fire Systems inInventor. The building trusses and basic shape are the model I received. The HVAC, Exhaust, and Sprinkler systems are Inventor models. The HVAC ducts are all sheet metal components. (Yes, I'm doing it the hard way, not with Revit.) The image was rendered in Inventor Studio.
This rendering demonstrates the Fade animation technique that is mentioned in the Inventor Studio tips page of the wikihelp.
It would be great to send this to a 3D printer and have a model to work from at the site - summer 2010.
What I love to see is when a design comes together and results in something that is helpful to people. Take this product image for example, it is a radio controlled concrete finisher. So, what's the big deal?
Well, if you were the guy manhandling the walk-behind, or the guy on his knees, you might appreciate a less laborious solution. One that provides a polished finish in the same time or less than the walk-behind. Here's a side-by-side look at them.
It was a fun project.
This is an Inventor model I started some time ago as an homage to my dad who built these in the back yard. I was privileged enough to drive for him over a period of three seasons. I've always loved the look of these cars, especially when they're sliding sideways through the corners. They're a fun ride! I've yet the time to model the 750 Honda motor to go in it, but I may get around to it one day. I've toyed with the idea of doing an Offy instead. That would be pretty cool.
This is a test to see whether or not a WikiHelp Search result can be posted as a link: Migrating Inventor Styles
