Bas Relief Panels

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.

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.

Hello Sir,

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

Thank you

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.
Easy Tool Redesign
We are redesigning an existing tool, it is a very simple tool which combines existing parts, Our focus is on portability and a modern sleek design, we require 2d and 3d tech drawings
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
