Chris, you make a valid point. But they were generated in 4 to 5 seconds and hundreds of them. Wonder if you would agree that there are 1000's of such meaningless designs floating in the market, designed made and available for sale at much greater expense time and cost. The good thing about digital design now is that you are able to see what is being designed or generated and kill those that you don't like. If you have skill, nothing is stopping you from modifying it to your liking as your sure do with your other designs.cg wrote:SK wrote: When I look at all those renderings of differently proportioned MP3 players, I just see "meaningless variations" so I guess you've succeeded.
What you create, I can guarantee will not be liked by quite a few others. If they are IDers themselves, then we will possibility be down to a fractional percentage. Nothing to do with your design. But I am sure you would agree, that is the with the "I like or don't? " (full stop) - People. Now, if you ask those connoisseurs who do not like your design, non of them are likely to blame SolidWorks or ProE or any other CAD package you use.
I don't consider myself a competent product designer. I a clearly not. So, the designs displayed suffer in quality. This has been pointed out many times and I accept the short coming. But I am not sure why many intelligent designers are unable to distinguish the quality and capability of CAD tools from sample designs created by it ? Wonder if you can help explain ?
