Modeling Rowenta Hair Dryer



Start with ellipse in Right viewport. (Click on diameter option) and input for end of first axis 32mm, and for end of second axis 16mm.


Now, using (select Rounded option) make a rectangle (first length 20mm, and second 13mm, and center it in the center of our ellipse:


the two curves from top viewport, and extrude with no other extrusion options:


the inner part of outer shell of our dryer with extruded ellipse, and split the inner shell of dryer with extruded rounded rectangle:


the edges:


Fillet the Edge with 1mm radius.


Now, create this little rounded rectangle, and position it like on the image:


it on the blue surface, and extrude that projected curve by 3mm (-3mm) and make a cap with command.



And for the end, we will make another button. The first one was for controlling the fan speed, and this one is On/Off button. So, create an Ellipsoid:


that ellipsoid with command by 0.5mm towards outside. With the bigger ellipsoid trim the handle:


Fillet the edges with 0.4mm, and you’re done!!!



  1. Very interesting but unfortunatly I’m not that far advanced YET. With stuff like this to play with I’m getting better all the time. THANK YOU !

  2. Modeling Rowenta Hair Dryer Video tuitorial troubles.

    Step 4 video does not loadup into web browser (all [4] the other ones do.)
    Can you fix?


  3. hi……not exactly relevant to the tutorial, but looking for advice – exactly how difficult is this programme to learn? Naturally this depends on a variety of factors, time, understanding etc….but to someone who has never used a 3-D modelling program?….any advice would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

  4. Thanks a lot. This tutorial really broke down many problems I was having. I really appreciate it! Oh, and I am a newb a rhino and was able to complete the tut. It took about 6-8 hours…thanks again!

  5. this tutorial suck! i dont get anything from it..i tried many times…but as its not detailed explanation and not mentioning little details that lead you to mistake is totally skipped

  6. I just did your tutorial. Learned a lot, and thanks for that.

    However, I noticed in some cases, your method will lead to surfaces that have no thickness- i.e. it looks like a solid but it’s actually just a surface infinitely thin. In particular, the way you constructed the ‘hole for hanging” and the groove in “speed controller (step5)” , will compromises the integrity of the solid. Checking naked edges will also reveal this.

    Instead, I built individual solids and then booleaned them together. Not sure if this is the best way, but it worked in keeping the handle a solid, with 2mm thickness.
