Bas Relief Panels

in 3D Modeling Design held by Tspoon
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Create bas relief panel models to be CNC routed from MDF sheet. I will provide exact panel dimensions, sketches of the design and images to be modeled. Photos of similar examples attached.
How faithfully the models capture the intended design and bas relief style.
Ask for Sample:
Show examples of modeling organic forms versus geometric primitives.
  1. SolidWorks (10-14)
Additional Information
Please see recently added info on panel dimensions and desired subjects.

The panels should depict a great blue heron standing in cattails and a flying heron above.

Please see examples of herons and cattails attached.


1st Winner
#2 Heron Fly.stl by danby
From what I know, any of the CAM programs can read stl files.
I took the liberty myself and I have changed heron flying ... to work on surfaces after a picture it's hard ... need vector files.
Check if appropriate to your desires, then I will continue to finish all requirements.
What CAM software do you use?.
I use DELCAM software...and is OK

Hi, i've made the modifications you wanted, now it completely looks like on the pdf, it is a closed .stl file like the ones on sale over the internet. It also is a big file as the resolution went high. I hope you like it, Regards.

This product should be made by Artcam or Jdpaint software!

Please see recently added information on panel size and desired subjects for panels. Entrants can propose alternative formats to Solidworks as long as files can be used to program 3 axis CNC router.

Tim is correct the methodology is simplified by the industry standards for routing base reliefs

As requested when can the specifications be posted

Solidworks is not exactly the best software to use for this. What about a grey scale height map? The CNC software I use can import a bump map and 3D carve to a specified depth. There is free software out there that will convert the height maps into .stl files.

When will you be submitting the sketches for us to work with?

Hello Sir,

What are the dimensions for the panel, sketches and some images to be modeled?

Thank you

Large 3D bookshelf backstop
Inspired by the historical visual progression of mainboards, we are looking for an innovative design to use as the back of a large shelving unit. We are looking for a design to go in a display case. The display case will then be used as a holder for glass shelves. Think of it almost like a glass bookshelf. Except, instead of the back being a cheap piece of board held on with tack nails like a shelf from IKEA, the back will be the design you come up with. Dimensions: 8ft wide 3ft high 1-3in deep The case is being used to display tech items. So we would like the design to reflect technology. Think mother board but on our scale. The original thought was to collect old motherboards, including ram and cpus. We were then going to lay them out on a 8x3 piece of plywood and glue them. Instead of this, we now want to get a design that a CNC machine can make. Material used: Wood and old metal. The design should induce a feeling of technological progression. So from left to right the design should transition from old circuit board tech, to current tech, to possible future tech (this part is open for interpretation) As an example, in the attached picture, the green part is what we want to replace with our 3D circuit board idea. Please note that the picture is just one from google and does not represent the actual shelf we are building The entire shelf will sit on top of a table, meaning that it will be at eye level for the average person.
Medical Bin & Cover Re-design
Redesign of our medical storage bins and cover access methods. The overall industrial and mechanical design initiative should explore new methods and ways to reduce lid opening space. (See attached document for full details.)
Low Cost dental Chair Softgoods Design
The task at hand is to find an economic low cost method to manufacture and upholster adult dental chair soft goods. Quality and life of covering must be robust, 10+ year life. The dental chair soft goods typically consist of three major components; underlying support structure, many times this is a vacuum formed plastic element, the seat foam, and the upholstery itself (see attached photos). Dental chairs are normally divided into two main components; 1) The back structure, 2) The seating structure. Key to this design initiative, should include an alternate way of securing the leather to the underside of the chair. Most chairs currently utilize hundreds of staples to secure the fabric, this poses to problems: 1) High direct labor, 2) No way to easily replace the upholstery covering. We are seeking a new innovative design ideas for new methods of manufacture without using staples or typical snap fittings.
Angled Keyboard Slide
The design requires a clean simple method with minimized parts and manufacturing costs. Product is low volume, 250 to 500 pieces per year. We are interested in minimizing capital tooling costs. Design challenge is to design a keyboard slide platform that sits at a 32.5 degree angle (see attached documents). Keyboard slide needs to easily lock in upward position when not in use, and needs to easily be released and slide downward when in use. The keyboard slide is on a cart platform, so when the cart is being moved around, if it gets bumped, we do not want the keyboard slide to dislodge and slip into the down position.
create a parametric CAD model
I have a 3d model of an upright that was produced using topology optimisation software. The optimised model provided must be used as a guide to create a parametric CAD model. The optimised solution will be provided as a solid works file and I will require the finished CAD model as a SolidWorks file. I will also provide the original upright design so that you can use it as a reference when creating the new design I will need the job done by the 15th of october
