The modeling technique of overbuilding and trimming can be used to create more detailed and intricate models. Use the following examples as inspiration for practicing the skills you have just learned.
The 1970’s-style TV shown below is based on a simple sphere. The screen and the controls are cut into the sphere using intersecting and trimming. The base is a revolved surface. All the sharp edges have been finished with the Round or Fillet tool.
The car key model is typical of many electronic devices with function buttons. You can use the same technique that you used with the vacuum cleaner power button to create the key fob function key.
The wheel shown below is created from one revolved surface and six skin surfaces. Intersecting and trimming is used to cut the holes out of the revolved surface.
The barbecue fork is modeled in much the same way as the shapes would be made in a workshop. Imagine the fork prongs as a sheet of steel, bent to give the gentle curve along their length. The prong shape is then cut out. The handle is made from two large mono-rail surfaces, intersected, trimmed and then filleted.
