Organic Modeling with SolidWorks

Wohlers Talk

If one looks at a honey bee, for example, its body is a very complex shape that could be a serious challenge to model as a single feature. When breaking the bees body into the head, neck, waist, and main body, each individual part is much less complex than the whole, making the object simpler to model. I do it all as a single part, but first model the main body as a feature, than add the waist as the next feature, then the neck, and the head.
