Is anyone kind enough to create a VECTOR file of the Soul logo??

I.E using Illustrator or similar. In otherwords NOT just a bitmap that would be crap to scale

I could probably do it but don't really have the skill.

A vector would be great for doing Tee-shirts / badges etc etc

Perhaps this could be shared with the group and put on the website somewhere????

I am more than happy to host it if needed.

Great graphics work! I do a whole lot of video production and I am always dealing with someones business logo or graphical element. I wish half of them were as clean as the stuff u turn out! KUDOS!

In an effort to avoid work, I have been playing with the logo too...

Below is a 3D CAD solid model in 3D PDF form

If you have a decent graphics card you can click on the logo and spin/pan/zoom

And

This is a Finite Element Analysis of the logo showing the logo made from steel and deflected by a large point load

The colours represent stresses in the logo (Red = bad etc)
The deflections have been magnified to make it look funky

man you guys amaze me

my talents boil down to

going really fast

and breaking **** really quickly

i wish i had 1/10 the artistic skill you guys had

i rescue tools
Dude

I wish I HAD artistic skills :-(

All my stuff is Engineering software

Edit: ---- Good job wrt the rescue

The sort of stuff I do is to design stuff like those 'jaws of life' you heros use (I do stress analysis)

Right guys

Now we have a vector file....

What about opening a Spreadshirt shop????

See www.spreadshirt.com

You upload designs (vectors are better) then people buy if they want to

Best thing is it costs nowt (translation = nada, zip, nothing)

You can even elect to make a nominal charge on each item and have it sent to a Paypal account .... I.E to help with this ere website...

I set up something similar for the old duffer skaters in the UK ... we make 50p (50C) per item --- dosh going to the website upkeep

here is our site (we have sold quite a lot)

http://middle-age-shred.spreadshirt.net/en/GB/Shop

Needs a 'Luvvie' design type to run it really.....

Xara has some 3D included



I'm in the same class....... the only thing that I can draw is flies......
software sure helps.... :D

Loving that....

Perspective too....

So is this a solid model or a 2D representation?

FYI I use Keycreator from http://www.kubotekusa.com/

great surface and solid modelling
