Introduction: White House Ornament (with Light Up Obama Family Portrait & Interactive Elements)

Picture of White House Ornament (with Light Up Obama Family Portrait & Interactive Elements)

Main form built in Solid Works.

Moving features include a hinge, rotating Christmas tree, and a toy train on a track.

Main image of official Obama family portrait is illuminated when back-lit with string Christmas lights.

The Obama Family image is created by applying a "texture displacement map" to a surface in Rhino. once the texture was mapped I converted the texture into a mesh with the command "ExtractRenderMesh."
