Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Thursday December 19, 2013 at 3:09pm
 
With the Christmas season well and truly upon us a seasonal SOLIDWORKS blog seems to be the only possible topic for today’s entry. As the social media pages get the festive touch from our graphics department we have been particularly impressed by Jordan Tadic’s yule tide SOLIDWORKS effort, currently available on GrabCad.com.
 
SOLIDWORKS Christmas Tree
 
As well as being oh so appropriate, the tree truly demonstrates the level of detail offered by PhotoView360 - the pine needles provide an excellent example of a custom PhotoView 360 displacement mapped appearance. The branches themselves are created using the sweep feature, a black and white polka dot displacement map has been applied, varying the length of the displacement map creating the pine needle effect. When taking a closer look at the Christmas tree traditional baubles have been replaced by the SOLIDWORKS feature icons, with the SOLIDWORKS assembly icon taking pride of place at the top of the tree, the end result is something quite special.

Merry Christmas!
