Disassembling; Hand Sketching; 2D-3D Modelling: AutoCad, Alias Autodesk, Alias VR, Photoshop
Create a 3D model of a kitchen device, focusing on its components, assembly, materials and use.
The project and my role
As kitchen tool, we choose an object we were all familiar with: Ariete Pimmy mixer.
First of all, we had to study the object in every single part, disassembling each component and taking the exact measures of it.
After producing handmade technical drawings, my group mates digitally translated with AutoCad.
In the meantime, I drew some sketches to show the product relationship with the user and the environment. This informed and make the modelling part easier, also helping our interlocutors to understand its use. To realize the model, I have used Autodesk Alias Design, one of the best programs to work with for surfaces and curves. Rendering the model has been really difficult, due to the refractive materials the product was made of and the really colored scene where we decided to place and photograph the object.
We presented Pimmy through 2D/3D realistic visuals, finally collimating in a photo rendering.
