Glass Fire, originally uploaded by JimboRocks. I visited the MFA with my sister today, originally expecting we would focus mostly on the photography and maybe some furniture exhibits. I was not at all prepared for the amazing Chihuly exhibit that opened last month. I had heard about it briefly on the radio, and figured it [...]
You are reading Part 4 of this Imposing Model Project. Feel free to start at the beginning, or see the previous part here. Now that I had an adjective, a noun, and a handful of rough hand sketches, it was time for me to start working through some concepts in 3D, so I started up [...]
This post is Part 3 of this Imposing Model Project. Feel free to start at the beginning, or see the last part here. Once we had sufficiently fleshed out the form based only on our adjective, it was time to be given the noun, the actual object we would be designing. For this project, we [...]
This post is Part 2 of this Imposing Model Project. Feel free to start at the beginning, or see the next part here. Once I had selected the adjective “imposing,” I had to start exploring the word with both 2D and 3D sketches. I went about this with three different techniques: hand sketches, CAD sketches, [...]

This has to be one of the first “CAD Demonstrations” in history, and it is pretty amazing what could be done with 1963 computer technology (actually the rig they are on was built in 1958, predating the microchip). From the description, this video depicts: …the software Ivan Sutherland developed in his 1963 thesis at MIT’s [...]
