My boyfriend and I have been wanting to have our own 3D printer and now we do! We bought the PrintrBot metal framed one and made it work after assembly! Washi tapes really help to make the print stay in place, and the rainbow pattern never hurts anyone right?The first print is a wire organizer I CAD in solidworks.It has an egg shaped bottom and some chisel shaped teeth on top. The plastic has a little bit of flexibility so […]
I designed this sculpture in Solidworks. I drew several triangles in sketches on different planes and using the loft feature to create this 3D sculpture. I used 3D printer to print this miniature version and I currently use it as a ring holder.
The primary design goal for this assignment is to explore design possibilities towards the design of flexible plastic objects that move and interact with each other as a connection system. The material that is produced through rapid prototypes made of my design. I have considered that the connection is required to use friction, tension and the flexible properties that plastic offers to achieve the connection. The connection I designed is temporary, allowing the two parts to be clicked together and […]
