The Saddle

This part focus’ on the design of the saddle and how to create the shape and style of the seat. Stuart will be modelling this part using a mirror technique so in effect he only has to model one side of the saddle, saving time and effort. The saddle is the part of the trike which you are always in contact with, so it is important that it is ergonomic and comfortable. Including high fillets and draft is a great way to prevent sharp edges.

This Part will include:-

  • Draft
  • Splines
  • “Double Shell” technique
  • Plastic moulding design
  • Half – Mirrored Modelling

To follow this series keep an eye out for our updates on Twitter and YouTube. We will be looking at adding to these biweekly.
