The 3D Model

Version 1 Updated 6/24/2020

We use a pretty peculiar but quick workflow to get things done, using the best of two very different modelling environments. Everything gets roughed out in 3DS Max, and then gets imported into Fusion 360 for the final detail work.

If you are an industrial design and want to see how we do it at a semi-nitty gritty level, check out the video below.

Build Stats

  • 5 hour modelling time from image to done.
  • 3/32 Aluminum plate core, walnut sandwich.
  • 42" long.

Curious to see our exact setups? We'll send them to you. Includes the Fusion 360 .f3d, keyshot .bip, and the 3ds Max file.

We'll also send updates for future projects and giveaways so you never miss out, and a newsletter for the really sweet projects.
