3D Models

    This page is a list of stuff I am posting. Most of the posts have a 3D model that you interact with. I can't have them all load on a single page so if you want to see the 3D model you need to click on the continue reading or the title of the post.… Continue reading Read this

  • Green Flowering (flowing)

    A slight variation one the previous post. This one is green instead of pink. I printed a green one so I wanted to see it green.

  • 2Flowing

    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

  • Returning

    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

  • Bnip

    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

  • Bucket

    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

  • Untitled (Self Portrait)

  • 5Pointscrump

    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

  • Balld

      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

  • Twent24

    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

  • Tower2

    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

  • Textube

    The textube is a textured tube that printed as a hollow object. It looks much heavier than it is. Sort of the opposite of my fatness. I look lighter than I am and I look fat so it's not good at all. The printed texture is reminiscent of stucco or a drippy glaze on a… Continue reading Textube

  • Spikey

    This is spikey (Spikey?), obviously. It was an attempt to make a very dense object that the printer would not be able to print. Surprisingly the print is a good representation. I had to add a lot of support on the bottom half so it's more a paperweight than a floating spiked ball (virus). You… Continue reading Spikey

  • Spiralist

    This is a simple spiral. I print a lot of spirals. It’s not smoothed so it retains some angular properties. Sometimes I get caught (enamored?) in the minimalist trap. I think there’s something essential or profound about a simplistic shape like this. But really its a combination of limited imagination, limited technical skills, and laziness… Continue reading Spiralist

  • NewPyramid

    This is an angular take on a spiral. Mis named a pyramid because it is tapered. It’s somewhere between a piece of candy and a failed cookie cutter design. Not sure what would make this better or worse. I printed a few in different colors and sizes. Sometimes an idea is complete or limited and… Continue reading NewPyramid

  • 5Points

    This is an older model. It’s related to the SilSat model from another post. It is also combined with some additional versions to create a complicated shape. It started as a way to add a top to an otherwise simple column. It now works as a pointy tower and also as a container with a… Continue reading 5Points

  • SilSat

    Print for Saturday 2021-05-08. It's a small print with with minimal setup. It is being printed in purple PLA with low quality setting. I am using my Creality3d CR-10s Pro v2 printer to make this print. The estimated print time is 4 hours. It will using about 200 grams of material. The dimensions are approximately… Continue reading SilSat

  • Me

    Cone of forgiveness with a couple of cut outs. Hole punched around the edges. None of it makes much sense. I am not sure when I made this or why. Now that I look at it I am sure it was an experiment that didn’t lead to anything interesting. This happens now and again. Displayed… Continue reading Me
