3D model content
A collection of artwork, projects, articles and video relating to 3D model.
Spiral bevel gears
An animation showing how a pair of spiral bevel gears interact using gearing similar to that found in the Airbus H125 helicopter transmission gearbox.
Winter break learning
I found time to learn a few new things over the break. Including Cinema 4D, Blender and Fusion 360.
Flight paths and great circles
The route is first projected onto a two-dimensional map before animating to the three-dimensional shape of a globe.
Innsbruck airport approach
The runway at Innsbruck is at an elevation of 581 metres and the final approach must be made through a narrow valley with terrain on either side.
Airspace above the United Kingdom
Across the world airspace is divided into three dimensional blocks. This view shows airspace blocks over an area of the United Kingdom.
Airflow around an aircraft wingtip
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of airflow at an aircraft's wingtip. Vortices are circular patterns of rotating air left behind a wing as it generates lift.
Pressure around an aircraft wing
CFD visualisation to show the pressure distribution around an aircraft wing. The curved shape creates lift by forcing air to move faster over the top of a wing.
Cross section of pressure around a wing
Rendering the volume of air that is affected by an aerofoil surface. Low pressure areas, responsible for creating lift, are shown in blue.
Airflow around an aircraft wing
Visualising the aerodynamic effects of an aircraft wing, with a 3 degree angle of attack. Including a turntable showing a 360° look at airflow around a wing.
