Which college are you from and what company to you work in?

This bike model is really great, reminds me of my college days when I used to make car models on Solidworks.
Thanks Foxbat,

GM & Volkie are good MNC companies buddy. good for you to get internship in them.

When I was in my 8 th standard, I got myself a block of wood & carved a dodge viper out of it using a chisel & hammer. At that age I did not know a lot about machines & just went ahead with whatever I thought was possible. I wanted to make a model of the viper as I loved it dearly (you know the kind of pure passion & dedication we have towards our liking in that age..&...ofcourse not missing the girls..)
Since I did not knw carving in wood & about the tools used in it, I approached a carpenter who made carved designs in wooden doors. I got a 10 mins lesson there & headed to buy tools & block of wood for myself. I was cheated by the tool seller & the wood seller in the price...lol! When I started carving I got some cuts, brusies & lot of shouting from parents & neighbours for the sound that I was creating in a society. It took me nearly a month to carve it out of that square block & u won`t imagine the kind of joy I got after all that efforts put into it. I will post some pics of that viper soon after getting the red paint off the it.
I had started a lamborghini diablo in wood, but ended it in middle as soon as I noticed clay (sadu mitti) as an easy option to design. I styled a ferrai Enzo in it then a Mustang. Then I got to know about polymer clay & plasticine which got mitti thrown out of my head & house (got lot of scouldings from my mother to create a mess in the house...dreadful days..lol!)

Its just a short part of my life as a teen trying to bring in the world what was in my mind & soul.
I know there are so many talented Indians out there who have the capacity to make a major change in the society with their skills. Hope they get the resources they deserve & wish them all the best.

Nice to have designers in TBHP. I am sure there would be a few other designers too.
Do not leave us out. Do post regularly about your own and other interesting creative designs. Let us, aam admi, non-designers also share some of the excitement. May be you could start a new thread.
And all TBHPians from Pune, do take care, till the flu scare subsides.
Thanks Profold,

Will keep posting & wont leave you all buddies out :-)

Take care & watch out from that flu

Oh !...Thats how modern R&D facilities are :-( All the work is broken up into specialised personals.
I personaly like to work with machines & computers under the same roof as it is more satisfying to the mind, gives a bost to thinking & brings forth solution to a particular problem quickly. If its only computer work, I get bored, but after all can`t deny the work of a computer regarding cost & time

So which software do you use for Dynamic Analysis ?

Yeah. It would have been better to have a testing facility too. Though we know theoritically, we have no practical experience. We use permas for dynamic analysis.

Its impossible for an individual to own a software like UG unless he is willing to shell out lacs of rupees for a single module. Mine is connected to the main server & I don`t own it.

That was expected. Dude, another question. the designs that you posted here, are they part of your office work or your freetime work?
