What would be the easiest way to model green leaves (see picture) in SolidWorks?

This is the way that i would do;

  1. Step 1:

    First draw a 3d sketch of the leaf when you are looking from the top. (press space and select top)

  2. Step 2:

    Press space and click front. You will se a line with a few dots. Grab some of them and move a little down and up. Especially dots. (to make more realistic look.

  3. Step 3:

    On surfaces tab, Click on Filled Surface and then click on the sketch that you have just drawn.

  4. Step 4:

    You will get something like that after you apply the feature. Then clik on thicken feature to convert it from surface to a solid.

  5. Step 5:

    Then google a leaf and make some illustrations for your model to use it as texture.

  6. Step 6:

    Drag drop that image to your model on slidworks and select face. Right clik on the leaf and you will see the face under appereances. Scale-move-rotate the texuter. And after everyhing you will get this. (you can do the same thing for the back)

  7. Step 7:

    You can edit the scene to have a nice render. Here is one.
