More flowery stuff. Not sure how this happened. It references some deep seated unease with hippy culture. But I made so I have to show it. This started as a very mechanical and industrial looking object and slowly softened and mutated to being a flower like thing. Flowers and gears are similar or at least… Continue reading 2Flowing


Eight is an interesting number. There are eight corners on a cube. Six face and eight vertexes. Math is confusing and not at all precise. Numbers tell you things but not always the thing you think they will tell you. Words tell you things to. Images are ambiguous at best and misleading most of the… Continue reading Returning


The Bnip. Short for two other words or a four letter acronym. I don't know. It's not that important. It's a simple shape. A cone with ball at the top. Subdivided and smoothed and then faceted again. Regular polygons make it easy to print. It's still got angles but feels smooth when printed with silky… Continue reading Bnip


Working with OBJ files and textures. This is a colorful mashup of a drawing and a faceted bucket (cylinder without a top). It's somewhat random as I removed the actual baked texture that had some vague relationship to the shape with an arbitrary multicolor swatch. It makes no sense but it is more playful than… Continue reading Bucket


Another tower. This one has lots of texture. It's long and thin and feels sharp. Not at all friendly. Mostly wants you to stand back and be mindful. You could lose an eye or worse. It doesn't fit very well in the scene box. I can make the 3D window tall but then it will… Continue reading 5Pointscrump


  This is a test to see if the positioning, scale, and orientation holds when I export the STL file. So the default export from Cheetah3d shows a top view in the VRM360 plugin. I can set rx=-90 to match the orientation in Cheetah3D. I also match the aspect ratio to 1.5 and initial offset… Continue reading Balld


I haven't tried to print this yet. There's going to be a lot of support material and I still not sure which way to orient the piece on the build plate. The name doesn't mean much. It was two identical pieces at one point merged into on. and I rendered it to look like something… Continue reading Twent24


A simple tower that prints out as a hollow shape. It’s sort of a wedge but less useful. I was interested (obsessed) with creating shapes that could be printed as hollow object and also viewed as two dimensional pieces of geometry. This one has a smooth surface and very few angles but enough to not… Continue reading Tower2
