Pictures of the Day: May 6

Used no less than 4 different measuring/drafting devices for 1 drawing today.

Since the new last I’m working on is not based on a 3D scan, it’s likely the most complex geometry I have ever created CAD for. Consequently, wrapping my head around it has required a lot of drawing board time. Pencil and paper is much more flexible than the rigid definitions of a CAD program when initially hashing out complex curves and has the up side of making me feel like a 1950s engineer.

Further last planning: simplifying and smoothing a biological foot into a parametric last.

  1. The extinction process of the pencil really began in earnest in the 80’s but measuring instruments are still in use, only hooked up to electronics and turned digital.
