Yin and yang, sweet and sour, and love and hate. It's fun to pair up words and let them play off of each other. I always liked the love/hate split myself so I decided to make a 3D printed item to honor it.

Look at this from one side, it's "love." Look at it from the other, it's "hate." Look at it from other angles and it's a bit of a mishmash. Make of that what you will.

I'm not here to talk about philosophy and dichotomy, though. I mostly wanted to play around with shapes and 3D printing and this is a fun test that can be quickly recreated.

Step 1: Create word outlines

I used Illustrator for the first step of creating the vector paths for the letter outlines. Just type of the words you want, choose a font, and make the outlines. Easy peasy.
ok that is beast
This is sweet! But i dont have a 3-D printer is there a way i can like send the desgin of the words to someone to print it?
Shapeways and Ponoko both do this
This reminds me a lot of anearlier entry in the competition by ziggalo about a 3d perspective signature model. I do like it though and the images that you have entered of your model give a much nicer face to the final product.
Oh, nice, I hadn't seen that. It's the same results with a different technique. ziggalo cuts away at the first extrusion with the second and I'm intersecting the 2. <br /> <br />One problem that both of these have, though, is that it can be difficult to line up each view. That's probably worse with ziggalo's since those models are more intricate. <br /> <br />The next test I want to do for this is to create two extrusions and then taper each one in towards the front of the word a little bit. This way, the whole extrusion can line up along with perspective and be easier to read.

Oh man... this is trippy!
Hey Ed, on TV Tropes, there's an interesting word I think would fit your print quite nicely. It's called &quot;<a href="http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Tsundere">Tsundere</a>&quot;
I love it ... I think ???? <br>Nicely done !
Thank you
