Ideas for final

I haven’t set my mind yet to what I will end up making for the final but here’s some of the thinking:


I have worked previously a wine cap stopper. I would like to develop it to a led lit one. It is no longer used to hold down the wine.
But to recycle the wine bottles into lit items used like mood interior.

Below some research I did  for inspiration and later on some sketches.



Option II

Is a light bulb wire made from  20 3D printed flowers, however though the roses are the same in color the design varies, it’s  not a repetition of the same rose petals, each rose within the same style but differently shaped, it’ll give it a more natural and organic feel.

I might want to change the rose concept and move to other shapes…


This option is a fun option but needs some mechanism research if I want to proceed with it.
the idea is to make a small functional machine or candy dispenser printed in 3D. Mixed with other media like transparent plexy slider over the printed box to show the transparency clearly (the candy). I will search for a mechanism that doesn’t require to insert a coin but a simple flip or turn of a bottom that would let the candy slide. a small fun slider for the candy is also doable.

Below samples for inspiration:



Bottle stopper cap

For this homework. We had to come up with a 3D design that fit into something.
I chose to do a 3D bottle stopper for wine.

So I started with truncated cone, moved to split its top to do some design it. I used Boolean to subtract a pattern from the top and closed the two entities with cap after.

Later on I added typography that says “Wine about it”. Used Boolean again to unify all
the solids together.

Final simulation.

Pen holder and else…

For This week I did a pen holder. I started simple with circles and cylinders. Life is easier with the boolean tool. I used both boolean intersection and boolean union, also used extrude tool.


And then I tried to play with typo, and make a pattern of it in 3D, Wanted to make it as piece that gets enlightened from down. But I think due to the complexity of the object the boolean wouldn’t take the shape.

Cactus pot

I like cactus, and it’s a good fit in a  3″x 3″ x 3″ space to make a cactus pot.
Initially I was inspired by the design  of this cactus pot, I like the randomness of the polygons or
different random triangular shapes…

for some reason I could figure out how to make the points of an object randomly editable.
So I went back to the classical shape that was easy to do with Revolve a tool we learned how to use in class.

end result:
