HTC One M8

Another image from the weekend. Modeled in Rhino and rendered in VRay.

iPad Sketch...

With the rumored release of the new iPads tomorrow, I decided to create a version I'd like to purchase. Why a bigger version? I've been really into some the of the new drawing apps for the iPad, but I find the screen just a little too small, as I generally sketch on regular 8.5 x 11 paper. Currently, I have about 5-7 drawing apps that I'm trying out. Hard to decide which is my favorite as they each have pros and cons. Drawing on the screen is a found image by J.Telusers.

Rendering materials...

Misfit Shine comes in an amazing array of colors, so I thought I'd look at rendering a few to see how they'd come out. The Shine unit is modeled in Rhino, from the one I own, and rendered in VRay. The green was the hardest of the colors to match, and I still think it needs a little tweaking. Post process in Photoshop.

Airport Express iCloud

I thought of this idea a while back as I was using time machine, and how I'd like to have my data backed up an extra time to the cloud, but not while I was using the network. I'd like to have a setting that would backup to the cloud at night while I was a sleep for example. Modeled in Rhino, rendered in VRay.

Entry way bench...

More for shoe storage than to sit on, it's needed with the amount of shoes we have in the house. Probably end up putting bags on it as well. Stay tuned for the full built version in the near future which will be assembled with glue and socket screws. Not sure if I'm going to keep the holes or not.

Recreation of a existing pair that are from a cool place here in the Bay Area. I like the retro look and feel. These were created in Solidworks, using surfaces, splines, and all the other goodies. Let me know if you can identify the company. I should think of a prize!

They're missing some of the screws and I haven't split up the parts into separate, shelled, "injection moldable" parts. Maybe tomorrow if I'm not too busy with my SW jobs.


Bathroom vanity for builder...

I had the opportunity to design a piece for a construction company that was working on a custom house in the Bay Area. I was responsible for creating something similar to a piece that the client liked, and setting up the drawings for the cabinet shop. Great guys that were building the piece.
