Honing 3D modeling & Keyshot skills

This visualization project was created to teach us how to effectively use Solidworks commands and attempt realistic Keyshot rendering.

Our project was divided into two parts:
1. Recreating an existing product image or render.
2. Utilizing the same Solidwork commands and form language to design a new product.

Side by side replica

Our first task was to choose an image of a product that we wanted to recreate. I chose this very popular fan from Second White that I found on Behance. After doing that I had to build it out in SolidWorks and tried to copy the lighting and colors that were used in the original. (Original on the right, replica on the left)

Formalizing a brand language

The next part of our assignment was to choose features from the original product and assign words and source images for these features. The words that I chose for the form language were: pillowy transitions, thin edges and scallops, gentle geometry, and rounded figures.

Translating into a new product

My next assignment was to take both the established SolidWorks commands from the fan and the brand language that I had decided on, and create a completely new product. I decided to create a juicer, and constructed it out of the bones of the fan. The result was an elegant and minimal design.

Final side by side
