For this week's assignment, it's required to model in every possible way a final project.
My Project is simple and consists of 2D and 3D Design and electronics fabrication and programming.And for this week, I'll try to model and implement a holistic view for it. I've been using CorelDraw and inkscape for 3 years, and There will be my start.
The puzzle design is divided into 4 main parts:
As a first step, I've put a sketch and drafting the design of the puzzle. For this, I used CorelDraw as in the below picture.
For the second step, I downloaded several pictures for animals, like bear, rabbit, lizard.. etc. Then I imported the pictures to corel draw to edit and add them to the puzzle. Editing the picture by 1st importing the picture, select, "Trace Bitmap" and then getting the final outline you need.
Combining all of these together, we have that view of the puzzle and the names of the animals.
For the 3D part, I used solidworks for modeling the 3D of the three first parts. For the base part, I strated drawing it on a 2D Sketch, like in the picture below.
After completing the design and extruding it; that how it looked like.
For the part base, It was a simple rectangle drawn and extruded on solidworks using the same technique.
For the monkey (as an example for the animal), it was easier for me to design in on corel draw, export it as a DXF file and then extrud it on Solidworks. Here the steps with pictures.
The next Step is to assemble all parts together. In the next pictures, I'll showing the assembly of the monkey and its base using solidworks.
And Here we Go! :)
