SOLIDWORKS Christmas Tree Topper

Article by Claudia Mak updated December 16, 2019


December is here, which means the holiday season is upon us and Michael Bublé is singing festive songs. Every year when putting up my tree, I have the same Christmas tree topper. It is an ugly angel that my mother insists on keeping and displaying at the top of the tree. This year I wanted to give the old angel a refresh, so I got to work in SOLIDWORKS to come up with something that is let’s say… nicer on the eyes. Drawing inspiration from the stars, I modeled a tree topper that is much more contemporary.

The video shows how this SOLIDWORKS Christmas Tree Topper was made, using advanced part modeling tools, such as Combine and Swept Boss/Base. These tools are useful for creating more complex geometry and you can learn more about them in our Advanced Part Modeling course.
