Dolf Veenvliet [Macouno] has created another web-based interactive gadget. This time, you can configure your own piece of jewellery and have it 3D printed in silver.
The ShapeWright.com website has had a new Blender based item added… The Variable Cross. The cross is a pendant made from 5 parts that you can swap/customise in your web browser (works best in Google Chrome). You can then order one, printed in sterling silver. This way everyone (even if you don’t know 3D) can have their very own piece of jewellery.
Personally I am really excited because I think we’re coming to a point where we can more easily bridge a lot of gaps… from Blender to non Blender users (even my mom can do this), to 3D print and actual physical objects. It’s really neat to design something in Blender, and then hold it in your hands! In this case I can not only be an artist, but also a facilitator, and help people create their own works.
Thanks everyone, and please let me know what you think!
