About the Steam Iron model in the webinar videos

I was wondering if there is an example of the Steam Iron model that I could look over to try and understand how that kind of geometry is created in onshape. I have tried everything I can think of without success. Thanks

    should I have posted this elsewhere?

    I appreciate the help, but the detail and curvature of the onshape model is what I'm wanting, it covers pretty much every surface modeling problem you would encounter and I just cant seem to find a starting point that leads in the right direction

    Hi @aaron_p I will post the model tomorrow. It’s not perfect and given the time I would redo it, but it should give you some pointers.

    Just when you think you've got the hang of Onshape someone goes and posts something like that!  Damn you Mr. Cooke!

    On the other hand, nice work fella, and it's something to aim at in the future.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    Definitely more to the model than I expected. I was going about the design all wrong. Thanks Mr Cooke.
