Modelling a simple keyfob in Alias

Keyfob Exercise in Alias


Personal Project


Alias Modelling



While completing the Alias course by Steve Cobert, I modeled a simple, water-tight and curvature continuous key fob as an introduction exercise to Alias.


The exercise

The purpose of the exercise was to make clean surfaces with planar theoretical edges, then follow up with at least G2 continuous large blends and smaller fillets.

A simple model that I wanted to get perfect

Thanks to Steve's guidance and feedback, I was able to deliver a high quality model of this simple key fob in Alias. My most common mistake was using surfaces of unnecessarily high degree or using too many surfaces when only one was enough.

The finished model

It was the first time that I received constructive feedback a model with manufacturing constraints and construction options. I knew my way around Alias well but planning and building my model so that it is easy to understand by someone else was a new challenge.
