Digital Modelling and Architectural Drawing

Circle is the dominant geometry of the light bulb, hence the modeling started from circular polygons like spheres and cylinder. Scaling on X and Y directions created the main geometry : the glass and the base metal cap, which have circle plans and sections. Vertices are adjusted to create the tension of the inner glass squeezing from a big sphere surface into the inner of the light bulb via the metal cap. Curves are finally drawn to extrude circular tubes as the wires inside the light bulb.
