Kettleball [whoops.... that should have been "Kettlebell"]

This is hardly worthy of a Gallery post, but I thought I'd share my [learning/practice] efforts on Jeff's kettleball kettlebell.

It wasn't easy for me figuring out how to use the Bend tool for this.

The kettleball kettlebell base (round part) is 5" diameter.
I used a 3D Flexible Text, height= ½";
Inserted a big Sphere, encompassing that;
3D Intersected the Sphere & Text, creating an ACIS Solid;
Used the Bend Tool to bend that with a radius of 2.25", in one direction;
Then used the Bend tool to bend that in the other direction, again at 2.25" radius;
Did some Reference Point moving and moving of the text Object;
Copied;
Applied Materials-- a Steel material on the round part, and a green plastic material on the text Objects;
Enabled "Transfer Material..." in Preferences;
Subtracted the text Object from the round part;
The handle is a sweep, 3D Added;
Blended at the intersection of the handle and the round part.

Anyway... it was something to do.  And learn/practice.

I could have took it further.  But as always, I struggle with the why.  Early tomorrow comes another glamorous day in the world of pool construction...

Kettlebell.  With an e.  Whoops-- I knew that was as easy mistake to make, and I though I was cognizant of it when posting.

At least I got it right in my model before making the Text an ACIS Solid and Bending, moving, Subtracting, etc.   :P

A kettlebell is a weighted workout thing. Similar to a dumbell.
It's to makes us strong!
It's an old-timey thing that has come back into fashion. I only know that because I am a long-time subscriber to Men's Health magazine-- though I don't do any of the recommended exercises

Very similar results, except that I Filleted every edge I could find for this project I did for a client last year.

What do they weigh? Nice modeling, by the way.

I see you were adept enough to put a flat bottom on yours.

Mine stayed round on the bottom.   When I delivered him the prototype, my client threw it back at me because it never stayed upright.
