Introduction: 3D Printing My Chinese Name_LI

It's a 3D Printing about my Chinese name--Li.

I want tell something about this Chinese Character.

Step 1: Research the Meaning of My Name

骊(Simplified Chinese Character), 驪( the complextformed version),

Structure of Chinese Character: Left-Right

Radical ( Simplified version):马, meaning horse

Method of Creation: phonagram

Meaning:Blach horse

Phrase: 骊珠, an invaluable pearl which can only be find under the chin of a black dragon

Step 2: Innovative Interpretation

Chinese character 骊(LI),pronouncing /li/, it original means black horse. Its pictograph version is compounded by horse and deer , stands for a nimble horse with speed. Comparing with a steed, a LI is much more clever and intelligent. In my opinion, the most representative image for LI is a horse in equestrian. Under the guidance of horseman, it accomplishes difficult movements graciously and beautifully, and finally gain good places, which is exactly shows its intelligence.

Step 3: Design

The image I used is a running horse in an equestrian sports to show the character LI in my name. First, I use plasticine to shape a horse under training, which is very helpful during 3D modeling.

Step 4: 3D Modeling

After modeling with plasticize, I found a lot of details need to be modified. Besides the design of the horse, the scene around it is also very important. Therefore, during 3D modeling, I intentionally added a horseman and a hurdle to more vivify the whole image.

Above is my 3D printed LI. Hope you like it.

AS a baby I had a Chinese babysitter who called me "Ming Chai". To the best of my knowledge that means "bright spark"? We know it was something like that but can't remember exactly. Is this correct?
