It’s safe to say that Quidditch is Harry Potter’s favorite wizarding pastime. As Hagrid would say, a wizard’s passion for Quidditch is the equivalent to a muggle’s passion for football. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the first publication in the series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. To celebrate, we are showing SOLIDWORKS users how to model the Golden Snitch – the little ball that Harry loves to hate. So hop on your Nimbus 2000 and let’s get started flying through our four part series.
In part 1 of the series, we’ll begin modeling the body of the Snitch using the Revolved Boss tool and a series of projected curves. We’ll also introduce you to the circular profile option in the Swept Boss tool.
