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
