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!


Here is a clearer version of the files 🙂


  1. Catchy names for all your Sketch Models… found it rather difficult to understand what the dotted green and red lines meant in your 2D sketch analyses without a legend. Might also help to have some annotation so that comparison between diameters/ lengths/ heights can be made.
