rest of the semester… Tues 11/28 or Thurs 11/30: Show off code, photograph rings *** LAURA BRING PHOTO LIGHT BOX AND MACRO LENS Let’s show off the rings! Come up to the front and quickly show what you printed. What are your next steps? Are […]

Cat Ring

After trying a couple different stamp designs in Meshmixer, I decided I was not satisfied with how it looked, so I went online for inspiration for other rings that might be easier. I wanted to try to make a ring with cat ears like […]

OpenSCAD Ring holder

For my project I wanted to create something functioning, and what better way to do that than to combine it with the project we just finished? With this in mind, I set out to design a simple ring holder. I originally wanted three […]

8-bit Boss

Before this project, I had never coded before, so the first week I spent a lot of time learning different coding words and how the scale works.  I discovered online, that I can change the color of my design and I began trying to […]

OpenSCAD SD Card Holder

Coding in openscad was a little difficult to get the hang of at first so I decided I’d start by watching Dr. Taalman’s Youtube guide on how to code a polybowl and then work from there. I started by using the basic layout of a polybowl, then […]

Attempts with Code

December 12, 2017 Dyer Pace

The first time I have ever tried writing code was with OpenSCAD. In high school, a lot of friends took coding classes and were able to create incredible pathways for robotic cars, and computers. I did not know there […]

Triangle Twist

For this project we used OpenScad and to be honest I found it to be the most confusing out of all the assignments we have done. I have no coding experience, so trying to figure everything out was pretty difficult. Nevertheless, I […]

Rocket Ship

For OpenSCAD I found very quickly that I suck at it. I am definitely not a coder! In frustration with all the little details I decided to focus and make small things and then increasing their difficulty. I started with a cone and […]

3D Octopus

I began this project and was very excited to experiment with the complexity and accuracy which OpenSCAD provided for 3D printing. I decided to create a snowman for my first design. I began by creating 3 separate spheres to […]

Dreidel in OpenScad

December 12, 2017 Rob Condas

I just about had a heart attack when I heard we would be coding. I come from a family of computer engineers and seem to be the only one who didn’t inherit the coding gene, so I was sure that this was going to go poorly. However […]

The Crazy Twist

So, first and foremost, I have tried using code before and this only reiterated by original consensus that code is not my strong suit. With this in mind however, I definitely wanted to make something simple yet absolutely crazy. […]

Openscad Cup

After starting this project, I quickly realized that it was not going to be easy. I struggled for many hours trying to figure out how to write code using the material and instructions provided for us and could not figure it out. […]

Cusp Ring

December 12, 2017 Eli

The design process for my ring took several days of thinking and playing around inside of Fusion 360. At the start of the project, the class did a walkthrough in 360, learning how to construct a rudimentary ring with the tools provided. After we learned the steps for a basic ring […]

Helmet in OpenSCAD

So for this openScad project I had a real hard time coming up with any ideas for it because the program didn’t make a lot of sense to me, it just didn’t do things in the order I wanted or in a way that I thought it should have. […]

Love Ring

In this assignment, I created a ring, which I imported from Fusion 360. I just followed the steps Dr. Taalman provided for us. To make this ring unique, I used the shell tool at the end of creating the ring and set it to .75 […]

PacMan Ring

For my first attempt at a ring design I stuck with the basic ring design template in Fusion 360 and focused much more on the imprinted desing of the ring itself that was done in Mexmixer. I quickly discovered that photo files […]

Grandma’s Ring

December 11, 2017 NiclasM

In this assignment, I used Fusion 360 to create my Ring. During the fact that this is going to be a present for my grandma, I used the 15,7 mm (size 5) diameter. After creating the ring, I used a tool called “shell” to make […]

Tildes Ring

I really struggled with a design for this ring. I wanted something simple but detailed. I finally decided on using the tilde, or more commonly called, the squiggly thing below the escape button on most keyboards. I liked this […]

A Pure Ring

Fusion 360 is similar to other cad software programs but it did take me a moment to familiarize myself with the tools and where they were before I got started. I measured my chosen finger with a caliper and looked up the right […]

Mole Hole Cage

December 5, 2017 NiclasM

Working with OpenSCAD was really fun! During the fact that I’m planning on declaring a CIS minor, where you also have to write codes, I could already practice my skills for later on! To be honest, it did not take me that long to figure […]

Week 14 – OpenSCAD Presentations

December 5, 2017 mathgrrl

Show and Tell Any remaining rings to show off? How did you level up your OpenSCAD code from last week? Course Evaluations In the last 15 minutes of class we’ll do a set of official Course Evaluations. Later this week I’ll also have some Surveys […]

Tuner’s Cube – OpenSCAD

December 4, 2017 Eli

This project was definitely the most daunting of everything we’ve done so far in this class. When I was told that I was going to have to write a code and and 3D print something using that code, I was unsure of what to think […]

Week 13 – Level up

November 28, 2017 mathgrrl

Welcome back! Today we’ll talk about taking your OpenSCAD and Fusion 360 projects to the next level. First: Rings! Come up to the front and show off what you got back from Shapeways. What are your next steps? Are you going to iterate your design […]

Rough Ring

I wanted to make a ring that looked rough and haphazard but with some sort of continuing design on it. I eventually settled on making the edges rough but in a series of lines that were spaced evenly apart. I used a stamp of a […]
