Compulsive passion for designing skis...
It is just what i do all the time. while im sitting in class i draw a ski, sometimes i will take a ski that is currently on the market and try to make improvements to it, other times i will build a whole new type of ski from the ground up. then i take my drawings and make a cross-section of the ski on the computer, and then measure dimensions, all that good stuff. i posted this in the line skis cult, because that is what line is all about, innovation, making something exotic, pushing the progression of the ski industry. if you have the same passion and urge to design skis, like myself. make a post on this thread or shoot me a PM, i am eager to find other people that have an intrest in creating skis!
Absolutely im the same... whenever im in a boring class out comes the scetchpad and im drawing skis.... What program do you use to convert to models.
hahahha. mee too man. That is my dream job! I think pollard has the best job in the entire world!!
Powder makes me poop my pants
program? i just do it paper and pencil, then i take the tip/waist/tail and then design a model in photoshop and the write about the ski, like how much the materials would cost, what ski it most closely resembles, what terrain it is built for, etc.
im the exact same way with longboards....i think maybe you should talk to iggyskier/ the ON3P crew and show them some of your designs and maybe they would make some prototypes or something.
yeah I might just do that...
Its definately good stuff. I love everything about my new elizabeths. I don't know if other companies do this, but I think Prior skis (a Whistler based company) will make custom skis for you if you send them the measurements of the skis you want and the graphics (both top sheet and base). Its expensive but you can pretty much build your own ski which is pretty dope. You can even tour the factory and watch them make the skis and snowboards. Its really cool you should check it out if you ever get the chance.
i am exactly the same way. i actually made a model of a ski in SNO-CAD and called up bluehouse skis to see if they were interested, they said to email the design and we would set up meeting to discuss the design and tweak it. i emailed it but they never followed up after that.
