After having tried learning a 3d program for a good few hours, i changed to
good old programming. My main objective was to create lampshades for our rooms
but i already have more ideas, now that the framework is done.
All pages have some real time controls so you can design your own, and with
the stl export, print them :-)
And if you edit the shapes, you can save the generated parmalink to share or save.
This is a basic cylinder geometry, copied fromm threejs.
One can get surprisingly far by using the sliders.
HeightSegments will only later become obvious.
Twist is achieved with the bottom (twist) control. Results are best for
quite low segment values, so the triangles show better.
The extra radii (25,50,75) pull the shape into that direction. Only the 0
and 100, ie top and bottom, are exact. Lots of fun to be had here.
With the 5 control points can pull the shape out and back in.
And by using the Segments get some very nice looks.
This one is for large printers, but you can always scale.
A shape Raisa enjoyed so much she named it.
Numbers (and text)
I did some basic number generator for our rooms (keys and such).
One can change the text but not the font.
