Plain ol' steam iron seemed kinda dull, so I added some bells and whistles ;-)

I absolutely love it Henry! The body worked out pretty well. Those head lamps would be great for early mornings when the wife is still asleep. The bell might get me in trouble though.  :)

Quite an impressive piece of modeling Henry, especially the free form surfaces! Good job!

Where do I sign up for the tutorial?  ;)

How: Loft the orange profile and the white ones. Extrude the green profile; subtract from the loft; fillet the edges around the resulting hole. Loft the orange profile and the yellow one.

The rest of the model is pretty straightforward. The various bumps and projections were made as extrusions or spins (a loft in one case), added to the basic shape and the joints filleted. I made each add-on accessory in its own file and XRef'd it into the main file. (One of the advantages of XRef-ing is that one can rescale the resulting Block and its material will scale, too, even if it uses one or more wrapped images.)

Nice one Henry! I love how you push the modeling capacity of TC. How long to model start to finish?

Don't really know. Began the project about two weeks ago, but only worked on it in fits and starts.

The attached is just another steam iron, but with no bells and whistles. It just has tubes and fittings and stuff, it was a interesting model to do, so here it is.

That's a great model, Don. Does the tank hold water or fuel?
