Solid Arc

Top  Previous  Next

I can imagine many people using this type of object to create custom bracelets with their 3d printers. Since some printers have a restricted size it is sometimes hard to create a whole object in them. With PhotoToMesh's solid arc object you can create a bracelet as 2 3 4 or even 5 different objects, connected together with thread or chains.

 

Here's a third of a celtic bracelet:

 

Solid-arc-for-3d-printing

 

Notice to get a third of the 360° of a whole bracelet I set the Degrees Angle to 120. I could print this object three times, or use a different image on each third, while still keeping to the celtic dog theme:

 

3rd-of-celtic-bracelet-for-3d-printers

 

And the last third could be like this:

 

celtic-bracelet-with-dog-for-3d-printers

PhotoToMesh will not create all three parts in one go, you have to make each STL file one by one.

 

I leave how you physically connect these three celtic bracelet thirds into one item as an exercise for the reader.
