So one Sunday I decided to start a design project with my small cousins 6&7yrs old. After showing them one of my prints www.shapeways.com/model/80951/hoodie_5cm.htmlI asked what they would like to create and see made. We sat down and I taught them about elevation drawing and they created their concepts.
Here are some pictures of their sketches and my drawings.
Vinhay wanted a Fire Engine with Robber disguised as a policeman

Abhay wanted a police boat with a police robot.

The next stage is to model the boats up and create textures, then I have to creat photorealistic renderings to get approval and progress to printing.

Toy Concpet , hehe Smile Was that the kid's way of spelling or your own? So cute!

And I love the designs too. I'll be watching to see how these evolve on Shapeways.

Whystler you had me worried for a moment, the client has final say and is totally responsible for any mistakes.

I want my cousins to have a leap of faith in terms of their imaginations and not worry about what can and can't be. In the future I hope they will reflect back on this creative experience and be encouraged to be adventurous.

The next stage will be creating a UV map and colouring the model.

So from the drawings and CAD model I've split the mesh up for UV Mapping and applied the texture.
Here are the results Final 3D rendering.

Now I need to sign off from the client before uploading for printing.

in my opinion (is that correct?), i would say: write down firetruck normal, and not backwards, i think it's confusing for kids? having it backwards?

i have a police toy car, which had police spelled the normal way, but in real life it would have been spelled backwards.
but i think for kids it would be nicer to have police/firetruck spelled the normal way?

Police don't put it backwards. To tell you the truth I can only remember seeing it backwards on an ambulance.

Actually Jettuh, after looking at some pics on-line I will change it to the right way round, wonder if there is a reason why only on ambulances it is backward?

Thanks for the images, I think I'll leave it backward, it's more interesting.

would be cool to use the original drawings as uv maps and order it in full color...

Very cool idea.

Did you ever view the extended video at the Leonar3Do.com site? It has some excellent (and very inspiring) bits in it about them using that (plus an onsite 3D printer) to let kids go straight from vision to toy. Well worth your time.

I think I will try to keep the artistic intent of the creator for my next models, using the original drawings as colour maps.

I did see that leoner3do video it was great, I hope once people see the process from idea to reality it will make them more critical and responcible about their built environment.

The models have been uploaded here
http://www.shapeways.com/model/119160/police_boat.html
http://www.shapeways.com/model/119109/fire_engine.html

I'll be working on the figures next.

That's better. Looking good, are they hollow? They seem a little pricey.

Just curious, did the children have any hand in the 3-d modeling or coloring?

Hi Ushanka, they didn't get involved in the modelling, this was because they live in too far away. What I will do once the project has been printed is to show them the CAD modelling process. If they were closer this would of been done daily.

This is actually a good idea. I had been thinking about how much flexibility I personally have to make Christmas presents and such. The next (more altruistic) step is to have others let their imagination run wild, then make it happen.

Thanks for the idea - I may have to try this.

Hi, my ideas are realised by helping people who don't have the technical skill or need. It's great when you can take away hurdles and constraints to let their imagination flow.
This means the requests I get can be very challenging, interesting and rewarding.

Hi Bart, yes they did but unfortunately because of the cost and durability, they are too valuable to play with Sad . The aim of the project was to let them have a hands on creative experience and knowledge that they can use to create anything; this is what was more valuable and successful. Razz
