This has nothing to do with the API but is just something fun that I’ve been able to do with Inventor.
Hood to Coast is a large running relay race here in Portland each August that covers almost 200 miles and has over 1000 twelve-member teams. You can get a small idea what the race is like from the trailer of a documentary that came out a few years ago.
I’ve been on a few teams over the last several years but for the last two years I’ve designed the team T-shirts using Inventor. The first one was for an Autodesk sponsored team named “Sole of the Machine”. Actually it started out as “Soul of the Machine” but after the foot design we changed the name to match. I took advantage of the new T-Spline functionality before it was officially released to design the foot model. I also used the ray tracing in Inventor to render the final image.
Here is the final rendering of the model. You can click on the image to see a higher resolution picture.
This past August I was back with my usual team and the team name was the “Supersonic Slugs”. Here’s the T-Shirt design I modeled this year. Again, using T-Splines and the ray tracing in Inventor.
