Before the invention of light bulb people used to illuminate the world either using candles. It needed loads of candles or oil lamps (even though oil lamps were more effective than candles, it used to leave residue of soot) to full light up a decent sized room. In 1878 and 1879 respectively, both Englishman Sir Joseph Swan and American Thomas Edison both invented affordable electrical home lighting device. With in a short time it became so popular and essential device that it made in roads to house of millions of people. Now you cannot just imagine a world with out a light bulb and such is the importance of the electrical device we all use. In this tutorial I am going to show you how to model an Incandescent Light Bulb. Follow the step by step instructions as shown below.
