Hi,

Here are two examples of my own rendering were I use a transparent skin to unveil the inside working parts of the product. This technique isto be widely used when you are more about to talk with experienced CAD users.

On the second example I use the very same technique but to focus viewer attention on the very simple part newly created (design simple...) :roll:

Just my two cents

Nice work - thanks for sharing. What are they and which rendering package did you use?

Created using SW 2010 - refined with Simulation (add a bit of CFD to design an article compatible with DIN2353 standards). Rendered trough PhotoView360 (2hr/10 images) ... and of course a lot of hand computing.

The second one is a simple adaptating device that enable a standard roll of plastic to be workable in a controlled air workspace.

Let's say that the first product is NOT the perfectly suited vehicle to drive after an all-out party. :roll:

Dear colleagues,

This time it's a video. Let me know your reaction.

How do you deal yourself with YouTube in your communication, especially with other websites that without any mechanical or engineering content still reference your vids (ex. my vid can be seen on a Website that deal only with Kitten !). :confused:

Another example of the use of glass walls to enhance the quality of the design and focus attention of the public (customer and subcontractors) on the complexity and level of details of the model.

It's an Industrial building (length around 30m) with the full network of connected piping for a gas turbine.

Another view for those for whom the image file (GiF file) would be too long to download

To add some numbers for those that likes it:
- this full functioning model and another one were made on a scratch program in one (1) single month
- On average they included both 420 new designed parts including the ones that were added to the Solidworks piping database via direct entry.
- The model is refined enough to allow light CFD/FEA study to be made out of it for each component (a component being a dedicated piping - quick mods/adaptation are needed of course)

scratch... :rolleyes: seems I crashed this one.

I thought it would be great to depict the capability of SW to render large assemblies.

This one has probably 1000+ parts and depict a tensioned structure made with aluminium extrusion. It's a fully workable model for FEA under Simulation Pro (except for the desk assembly mock up and the would-be human figure).

Footprint went-up up to 10000m˛

And a short video (made entirely on a Notebook) :rolleyes:

Wow, pretty impressive stuff. How did you begin learning the rendering software? It's something I've been interested in for a long time, but I have never dived into.

I'm a long-time Solidworks user and I would like to add some rendering capability for simple parts and assemblies (think basic consumer products like injection molded game consoles and machined auto parts) to my arsenal. Where would you recommend I start?

Thanks for sharing your work!

Thanks. Rendered trough PhotoView360 (comes free with SW Premium). It´s really easy to get your hands on it. The learning curve is pretty steep but the results are there to push for the motivation. But you can shoot me an e-mail if you want me to tweak some of your 3d models.

With the increased mobile Desk-Top phenomena that see people more and more working in shared environment like Cafe, airplane or train, the needs for increase privacy and endurance have comes to a top.

For example, browsing Internet I migt have 6 to 8 hours battery life according to the brochure of my NoteBook. But launch some serious stuff like CAD, FEA, programming or Video editing and then that "6 to 8" switch down to "One to Two".

IN real life, access to a wired power line can be cumbersome and with the increased price of Energy, plugs are more and more rare in café (don't ask me about the Bien fondé of that!).

We, at SRDFMC Conseil (http://srdfmc.free.fr/SRDFMC.COM/Index.html), believe that we have reached a peak in that momentum. More and more, self carried power sources and a feel for comfort in Privacy will be the basis in the requirement of your own Private/Professional mobile computer.

Take into account the opposing tendency of the General consumer products that ask for Smallers/lighters Smartphones and tablets, and their is a shift in that momentum.

Are we going to carry two different Smart hardware to get the most of the two ?

Here is a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0s7IvSlNM4) of our proposal. This project is concurring for the CreateTheFuture Contest 2014 (http://contest.techbriefs.com/2014/entries/consumer-products/4764). You can vote for if you like it!

Another demo for FEA / CAE and Simulation Professional:


CAD is not anymore only the 3D modelling of an object on a screen. It's also the simulation of its usage, the refining of its design through a detailed assessment of its intended usage, tailored and measured. It's about giving a virtual life to an object that can be monitored, tested and improved even before the first cut of gram or an inch of expensive material.


Modelling and Mechanically simulating body parts can be challenging. Mechanical properties are at the corner of FEA capabilities and methodologies for industrial application are at their infancy. A lot still belongs to the laboratory or stays out of reach from entrepreneurs and Small industries.


SRDFMC Conseil (http://srdfmc.free.fr/SRDFMC.COM/Index.html) is proud to unveil a solution: we called it Vi. T. A. for Virtual Test Artifact.


ViTA is a methodology to quickly simulate and test challenging body parts with a high percentage of fat and glandular tissues for Non-Surgical Medical application and general consumer products.
