Artist Statement:


Smooth shaded renderings of this sabre saw make it easy to perceive various components.

Subassemblies can be separated from the whole and viewed from any direction.

Filleting and blending capabilities allow the designer to interactively combine and smooth several major surfaces into the desired design envelope. Since the rendering software simulates the effects of light on an actual surface, even subtle imperfections show up as they would on an actual object. Note, for example, the unintended “wrinkle” in the vertical portion of the housing.
