I modeled this in my spare time at work. It's done in solid works. It's a solid model so it has weight, volume, mass. It took me about one hour to do. The stem was the hardest. It came out better than I thought it would. My program is more for mechanical design, engineering & drafting. The wood is mohagany, they didn't have briar for a material option. The stem is acrylic though. pretty cool, huh.

Cool. Seeing as how the Design Team has done their part, send the model to R&D for a prototype - Briar instead of Mahogany. When you receive the Prototype from R&D, send it to me for Testing & Certification. Cool

That is one sleek looking pipe. Let me be part of your testing dept. cheers

being a mechanical designer I'm usually pretty linear and well mechanical about stuff. Not the most artsy person out there. But I guess pipes bring out my inner curves.

That's really cool. Great job putting it together. I wish I could do that!

Not a problem, Sir.

As I've not Tested or Certified any of Desertpiper's previous works, he will be required to provide more than one sample of this prototype, as I will require another Tester to run this model through the full Testing Program.

Before the Official BoB Certification can be granted, any and all said samples will be required to pass my stringent Testing Program. We will be testing for Manufacturing Quality, Finish, Weight, Draw, External Bowl Temperature, Stem's Resistance to Oxidation, Long-Term Durability, Resistance to Ghosting, & Safety requirements.

Safety you ask? Of course! Safety is our #1 Priority.

If all goes well in the Testing Process, then Official BoBCertification will be granted within a reasonable time frame... Very Happy

Once Desertpiper has submitted a prototype that successfully completes the Testing Program requirements and receives Official BoB Certification, future models will still be required to pass the Testing & Certification requirements - but the Testing & Certification process for future prototypes will not be quite as stringent as the initial prototype will have to endure and only one (1) sample of said future prototype(s) need be provided. This is done in order to require manufacturers to maintain strict Quality Standards per BoB Specifications. Cool




Congratulations and Welcome to the Team, Mgtarheel! I'll submit the full Testing Program and testing sample to you upon receipt of said samples (pipes).

Of course you will be required to provide full documentation of testing results, which will then be compared to my findings for further analysis before Official Certification can be granted. All that I ask is that you be thorough and don't attempt to rush the Testing process, as some of the required tests take time and repetition before final results can be determined.

You will also be required to test several different Tobacco types, blends, and cuts in said samples, but that will all be explained in greater detail in the package containing Testing Program materials.

As compensation for your efforts you will be allowed to keep said sample(s) for yourself, as this process falls under the classification of 'Destructive Testing' in manufacturing terms.

That's a great looking pipe. I love it!

I sometimes lay out my pipes using AutoCad LT. It's a great program, but I can't do 3D.

Keep 'em coming.

I remember the autoCAD days. For the most part I'm stuck using Inventor, which is autoCAD 3-D.

Very nice! I don't get to use solid works much. My company went with Surfcam. Good program for the machining part, but a little more difficult for actual design work. Nice job, good looking pipe!

That is a pretty coold 3D model!! I want to be a part of the testing/ certification team OR perhaps I could work on R & D for your next "project".

I would have to find someone to make the proto-types. I just have design and testing capabilities here.

Now if I could find someone to build them. As before modeled in Solid works, then rendered. If I can't afford to buy them at least I can model them!

We use the same software at my work. This may be the next generation of pipe making cheers

Pipeleisure,

Since you use the same software you know that the design can be made perfect. You also know that the design has no flaws, grain, pits or any other imperfections. You also know that you could put a hunk of briar or aluminum in front of a five axis machine and it could make one of these, and it would look just like the model.

But I don't think it could or should replace a fine hand made pipe. Some things are better left in the hands of people not machines. But it's a heck of a lot of fun designing these. Beats fixture & structure design any day.

Yuriy is Yakslon....search his name and look at his pipes. Friggin unbelievable work. I don't know why he's not more well known...or maybe he is and I'm just ignorant of it.

Look at "My new pipe YakSlon" thread in Ye Old Pipe Rack forum here. This is my favorite pipe that he posted on that thread....and I don't even like canadians that much...look at this thing.

Well done! It's a pity that there is no texture briar. Ebonite - as "a living! ..."

Also...Yuriy's English translation software is quite comical at times.
