3D Curvilinear Volume – The Rocket That Never Flew

Here is my final model and it’s application!



The Rocket That Never Flew


Application 1: Artisan Kaya Toast

A Singapore staple with a twist


How it initially looked like in real life, decided to photoshop it LOL


Much better!

Can you identify the D, SD, and SO? 😉


Application 2: Ear Rings

DIY a pair of earrings using plain paper, gold reflective paper, ombre thread, two sequins, and strings to attach to the hook! Simple with beautiful results.


I intentionally took note of the colour scheme. Added small sequins I found in my unwanted jewelry and added to the SO to give it more “blingz”


How it looks like when worn


The big reveal with my supportive classmates kiss


Here is my completed final PDF file!


Curvilinear volumes – sketch models and analysis

Hello! Here is my working file for what I have done so far for our latest 3D project. This time instead of rectilinear, we are to create curvilinear volumes using shapes like spheres, cylinders and cones.

Dotted green lines mean addition and dotted red lines means subtraction 🙂

A summary of all the models I have done

The first model looks like a snail that is carrying a workload representing me and uni life. 

Had to make the dominent much larger to create more presence and shorten the SD.


My favourite model, I am doing this for my finalised model 🙂

I jokingly said that the rocket, which is the cone represents my dreams and ambitions. However the sphere which is my responsibilities and burdens is weighing me down greatly. The thin cylinder at the side represents me trying to drive the rocket.

Decided to give it a try to change the cylinder, which is too long for my liking. Shortened it and made it wider and it now roughly looks like this:

Kind of looks like the cakes/dessert sets we see in gourmet kitchens!

Kind of have a liking to it however I still prefer The Rocket That Never Flew as it looks like something I have never seen before!

Will try to recreate it into food and a pair of earrings!
