Row Well Ring

Studded Ring

For this assignment we used the softwares Fusion360 and Meshmixer. To be honest at first Fusion360 was very difficult to understand, but I really liked how detailed and complex the gadgets were. I began my design by […]

Klingon Ring

Crown Ring

Swoosh Ring

Crown Ring

I used the template ring that we had been instructed on how to make through the power point. I was happy with the way the ring looked, so i didn’t want to alter the actual shape of the ring, i.e., the way the ring curved […]

Spool Ring

For this assignment, I began with the ring design that we made in class based on the ring tutorial. From there I wanted to make the ring have two outer edges, which makes it look similar to a spool. The way in which […]
