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.
