Free Project - Rocket Clock

Post by Stephanie Downing »

This month’s project is a Rocket Wall Clock for an aspiring space traveller’s room! Inspired by photos and illustrations of Classic Sci-Fi rockets and scenes, it features a vintage/retro-style rocket taking off from a “mystery planet” with a 2.5″ diameter clock insert mounted in the rocket’s porthole!

The relief components and vectors were created with the Vectric Aspire software. The main features used: Create Shape From Vector, Create Component from Bitmap (a dome overlay created from a photo of Phoebe – a cratered moon of Saturn), Two-Rail Sweep, Polyline drawing, Copy object along vectors, Node editing and nudge, Smoothing, and Add Draft to model.

Nice and fun design, Michael.

But how will you explain now to beginners that using Aspire is no rocket science? :D
Best regards
