If you dont mind me asking, what is your profession? I would surmise graphic artist?
No, I'm not a graphic artist. I am a design engineer in the automotive aftermarket. I design 4wd related components. This is a functional engineering model. Solidworks has built in rendering software that lets me make it look more realistic.

Absolutely amazing!!! I've been using SW for 10+ years, I'm not even close to being able to do something like that. Did you 3D scan each part to give you point cloud to model around?

nomadpsd, did you use the Ford Engineering prints to construct the components, or did you reverse Engineer the parts by measuring them?

Mostly Reverse Engineered. I measure and use lots of pictures. Here are a few overall for reference.

nomadpsd, have you applied the animation feature to the solid model? If so, do you think you can make a youtube video available?

This is so good. I'm interested to know what parts you are designing.

That's beautiful, nice work! From an "old school" guy (remember linen and India ink ?) that kind of rendering seems like magic.

Excellent - Solid Edge user myself. Don't think work would be too impressed if I started modelling Model A parts...

Joe B - vellum and Rotring pens when I started.
