help in modelling plastic parts

By John Doe on 10 Apr 20:04 2 answers 1 comment


I have an assignment where I need to draw a machine that we disassembled. But I'm having problems with modelling the plastic cover. I actually have no clue on how to start on this.
I tried starting with a solid block and then cutting away piece by piece, but that's a pain.
Next I tried drawing the outlines on parallel planes and then use a loft, but it isn't really a handy solution.

Can anyone spare me some advice or guides/ tutorials that cover this?

    easy Think 3 curves. Lofting extruding cutting blending, offsetting surfaces. Take top picture, side and front. Import into solidworks place according to each plan then start crating 2d splines Project those in each view you get 3d splines loft blend extrude offset till you get what you are looking for. Show us some more pictures I can guide you
