One of my favorite science fiction characters is Nomad from the original Star Trek. Nomad appeared in the episode called "The Changeling
". Nomad was more than just any space probe: Nomad could levitate, had almost unlimited power and was sentient. Having just completed a class on Autodesk Inventor, I thought I'd try out my new found skills and create a 3D model of Nomad in Inventor, use 123D Make to create a sliced model, use a laser cutter to cut the slices from corrugated cardboard, and then glue them together to create a reasonable sized model.
The finished model is shown in the first photo. The second photo shows the actual Nomad in the Engineering section of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The third image is a 2D diagram of the model I created.
