“YAY!!! 3D PRINTING!!! AWESOME!!!”
This project was inspired by jess’ pendant, which I supposed was based on triangular shape. We were introduced top mod program in this class. It was pretty tough and hard to manage it because it is different from rhino.
First of all, we were told to play and get familiar with topmod, so we can design incredible jewellery which has an inhabited space inside the pendant if we take a picture in it.
Before I do this design, I played around with Top Mod, so we can get familiar with it.
So, here is the first step before my final outcome.
(tips for you: if you want to make it to have a twist effect, when you want to add handle, and it told you to select a corner on a surface, you should select an opposite corner from the next surface)
before it can be say as a ready-to-print model, we should unweld it. Type ‘Checkmesh’ to check if the mesh really perfect or not. if it said perfect we can continue on the next step, if not, we should check the mesh manually wheather it has a hole on the mesh.
The next step if the mesh is perfect is to save it into stl file, and then open it in magics program, it’s a program for 3D printing.
if it’s all checked then you are done!!! it’s ready to be 3D-print!!
