Designer, Artist

I'm a sculptor thinking about geometry, science, and biomorphic fantasies. I show here and at Welcome!

Bathsheba @moroplogo@moroplogo The models you link are not mine. This design is often plagiarized, and you have found some examples of that.

Metatrino Pendant
Bathsheba @lilili Sure, I've turned it on. I usually leave it off because the name is misleading -- the material is not a stainless steel, it's the same steel/bronze metal as the other steels -- and I think the other steel finishes are prettier. But if it's your favorite, go for it!
Bathsheba @adam_kope I'm not sure it'll print, but I see the printability wizard thinks it passes the guidelines so what the heck, I'll turn the steel materials on.

Bathsheba @payprplayn Mathematica, Surface Evolver, Rhinoceros. It was a long time ago though, and you might be able to do the whole thing in Rhino now: people do very fancy math in Grasshopper and other plugins. (I still use Surface Evolver though -- the docs aren't easy reading, but if you're serious about minimal surfaces it's the tool for the job.)

Bathsheba @DGraves late, but wow nice photo.
Orions Belt: Silver: Top Section (part 1 of 2)
Bathsheba How do the parts stick together, do you have to glue them?

Bathsheba @nocturne At this size no. I did try; I think the problem is that the green part collapses. If a smaller one might be interesting, I can set that up. Let me know?

Double Zarf
Bathsheba @nocturne I agree -- metal printing technology is in a state that people will later see as endearingly primitive, in just the way we now think 8-bit graphics are cute. There is a touch of sabi about that flawed surface, which is unexpected in an object billed as "from the future". PS Thanks for the photo!

Klein Bottle Opener
Bathsheba @PhilHibbs @geeklodge Thanks for the note geeklodge! Word. I must beg to differ Phil: the coolest thing about a Klein bottle is that everything is already inside it. You're right that the circle of self-intersection is an artifact caused by embedding the bottle in 3 dimensions, but it's not a defect. Whereas cutting a hole would change the topological genus -- I'd have to retitle it "Möbius Shorts"!
Bathsheba @PhilHibbs It is closed. Otherwise there would be a hole in the bottle, and I would not like to ship defective ones.

Bathsheba @drpearl I'd vote to hang it on a jump ring.

Bathsheba @BDon I actually did this one from scratch using Perl. I wrote an implementation of George Hart's strut algorithm,

Bathsheba @superfighterbuilder Certainly it would be more accurate!
