Figure 1. Wireless Earbuds DesignFirst of all, I created a sketch to control the X and Y dimensions of the earbud.
Figure 2. The Sketch of the EarbudsThen I created a sketch for the side of the shape. I used Sweep command to form the sketch along the side curve of the extruded part.
Figure 3. Use Sweep Command to Form the Side CurveFor the extended part of the earbud, I created 3D curves firstly, then used N-sided to patch the part.
Figure 4. Create the Extended Area of the ProductNext, I combined the well-defined sketches and used the Revolve command to generate the soft part of the earbud.
Figure 5. Combine the Well-defined Sketch and Create Soft Area of the EarbudWith the powerful Fillet command of ZW3D, I was able to create a variable surface fillet. I firstly made over the extended surface then trimmed it using the side wall.
Figure 6. Create a Variable Surface FilletFor additional details of the earbud, I extruded the sketches to create several shapes which I used to divide the main body. ZW3D is very useful when working on projects with multiple shapes. .
Figure 7. Create Additional Details of the ProductMorphing command really saved my time in designing the volume button, which I needed to wrap along the side of the product.
Figure 8. Volume ButtonIt’s the same to design other details with the Morphing command.
Figure 9. Earbuds Details Design with Morphing CommandAfter that, I used the Fillet command to give finishing touches on the volume control.
Figure 10. Give Finishing Touches on the Volume ControlThen, to get an identical one for the other ear, I used Mirror command to duplicate the parts and then used Extract command to convert each part into a component. To this point, the design of the earbuds was almost done.
Figure 11. The Complete Earbuds ModelFinally, I rendered the models in the style I like to finish the design of the earbud.
