Frosty weather, long starry nights, and holiday cheer! This winter ornament evokes the feelings of the season and can light up the tree if attached to string light bulbs.
Step 1: Designing the Ornament
This ornament was design in SolidWorks CAD software. The overall shape was created using a revolved surface, which was then trimmed using a split line created from an intersection curve. The curvy sliver was thickened, stars were cut out of it, and the sliver was then patterned in a circle. The interior bulb is a lofted surface with a snowflake shape cut out of it using the Split Line and Delete Face features. The ornament is finished off with a swept loop at the top for easy tree attachment!
Pro tip: Stuff one of the bulbs on a string of lights in the hole at the top to light the ornament up from the inside out!
