Pretty slick concept and a nice render as well ... modeled in which app?

Thomas Parel said...

Thanks Evin. Its a Solidworks model. I have it posted on this blog somewhere. The renders were done in Photoview 360.

Schweet renders ... how do you like Photoview360? Right now I'm using Rhino and Hypershot. It's working out well enough, I suppose ...

Any chance I could check out the part/assembly file? The reason I ask is b/c I always like to look at how others think about modeling to help me learn. I'm currently and eyewear designer, but I use Rhino b/c that's what we had when I was hired ... so I had to teach myself how to use it.

Having used SW in the past, obviously the parametric nature of it is great when tweaking things, which is a big deal at the end of our modeling process (the client is very VERY picky). I've only just begun to take a crack at eyewear in SW on my own time. Any resources for surfacing that you could point me to?

http://pareldesign.blogspot.com/2007/01/i-will-be-going-through-rendering.html has the link to the Solidworks file.

360 is not bad- It comes as a part of Solidworks Professional, but Hypershot is still the better program. We have Photoworks and 360 does not cost us more so I cant really complain.

Following the link on the page from 2007 gives me an "Invalid File" error from MediaFire's website... any suggestions?

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck were wearing your sunglasses?

Thomas Parel said...

are you disparaging my woodchuck's craftsmanship now?

Hi Thomas,

A few weeks ago, I tried to follow the link to download the SWx file of the glasses that you modeled. However the link on that page didn't popped up a window from a web-hosting service saying that the file wasn't available. Would it be possible for you to email it to my gmail account?
