3D Printing

Week 2

Model an object that is composed of at least 2 parts that fit together.

For this assignment the object that was chosen was a picture holder. Its consisted of a picture frame and a the holder for the frame.

The idea was to shape the frame so that it does have some curves and at the corners connect some spherical elements. In that way when you are adjusting the frame holder at different angles the picture will be able to stand easier because of its spherical ‘legs’.



It is possible for the frame holder to change shape and instead of being triangular to become more spherical at the bottom part.

At the upper part of the picture frame there is a slot thick enough to hold a picture and a glass on top of it.

Week 1 Assignment

Produce a model that fits into a 3 x 3 x 3 cube using any 5 commands covered in class:

Sphere, Box, Cylinder, Pyramid, Boolean Intersection, Revolve, Linear Dimension,

Since its my first time using Rhino, the model chosen for my assignment this week was fairly basic. It’s based on a Robotic Fish floating across the Universe.

It started out with a box measuring 3 x 3 x 3 in order to set the boundaries for my model:


continued with a sphere inside the box to bootlean together


followed by the wings section, legs and eyes

furthermore some revolve was done on the wings and some hair was added using a pyramid


lastly adjusted elements to co-exist evenly and colored the model
