Carved Pumpkins

The Pumpkin Group

    For this post I carved a number of different pumpkins that I based off the model that I made for my last post.  To create the pumpkin eating the other pumpkin I used the scale feature to reduce the size of my pumpkin base.  This made it so that I did not have to remake an entirely new smaller pumpkin or even modify all the dimensions or the original one.  This is a simple tool that can be used in order to scale an entire part.  For the music pumpkin and the spider web pumpkin I drew sketches of what I wanted to carve on planes that were outside of the model and then extrude cut them up to next.  When I made these sketches I made sure that I left gaps so that there would be no floating piece of pumpkin if it was to be actually carved.  This assembly was created in Solidworks 2011.  I hope you enjoy it and have a Happy Halloween!
