Upside Down Heart Earrings

Hey guys! Just like to share something new I learned :) Obviously, it's a heart shape earring but what's interesting is how to create it and how to slide in the bead at the center of the heart. I had fun creating this cute thing from watching the video by Ross Barbera. I can't share the steps here as it's not my own, but if you like to find out how to do it you can watch it HERE. Cheers!

Modeling Mathematical Objects for 3D Print in 3dsmax or Blender3d

Hello, everyone.  I'm making my first post here to share some techniques and tips for getting started with polygonal modeling of interesting mathematical shapes, which could be used in 3d printing.  Math objects are quite popular in the 3d printing community due to their seemingly complex visual appearance, and overall unique aesthetic for creation of jewelry and other useful printed objects.  These tutorials are for use primarily with the modeling and animation software, Autodesk 3dsmax, or the free open-sourse Blender 3d.  However, the basic principals of these techniques can be translated to almost any capable polygonal modeling software. 3D Tutorial | Modeling Triply Twisted Torus With Holes | 3dsmax 3D Tutorial | Model A Mobius Strip Pendant | 3dsmax Modeling a Mobius Strip Pendant In Blender 2.73 3D Tutorial | Model a Scherk-Collins Saddle Surface Ring | 3dsmax 3d Tutorial | Voronoi Style Bracelet | 3dsmax Model A Voronoi Style Bracelet In Blender 2.74 These are but an example of nearly a dozen different mathematical and abstract models at my channel.  All tutorials are 100% free, of course, and I'd be happy to help you with any issues you may face along the way.  Keep in mind, in order to follow along with these videos, you will need to use the Autodesk 3dsmax software, or the free Blender 3d software, and have at least some intermediate  experience in polygonal modeling in general. These tutorials are not intended for total beginners to 3d modeling, unfortunately. Enjoy, and I hope you find something useful.

Electro-former- Need plans for building an electro-former. Had 1 in tackle box / plastic garbage can for vat years ago.

I need plans to build a new electro-former. Built 1 years ago as a BFA student at N.I.U. It was so cool. The main unit and rheostat  were in a plastic tackle box and a plastic garbage can was the vat. This was used for heavy plating over sculpted wax. Unfourtanly, it had corroded while in storage. and I had to throw it out. I will be using it to add to me jewelry line. I can also provide step - by - step tutorial to post on this sight. Oh, this is used outside under a covered building.. no need to worry about a scavenger for fumes.                                                            Thanks for your help and ideas!
