3D Printing my Chinese name_YANG
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Step1:research the Meaning of My Name
阳/yang/(simplified version) 陽 ( original version)
Structure of Chinese Character: Left-Right
Radical ( Simplified version): 阝
Method of Creation: phonogram
It originally means sun, sunshine, bright, and extension meaning is warm and outstanding.
Step 2: Step 2: Innovative Interpretation
阳/yang/ is sun. In ancient times,
we used 日/ri/ to stand for the sun itself,
while 阳 represents the shining light of the sun.
The radical阝represents for the sunshine on a hillside, and it shows an image of vibrant nature.
In my opinion, when something is surrounded by the sunshine, it is cheerful and full of positive energy. Speaking of sunshine, the first impression comes out is that the national flag rises along with the sun in the morning, and the sun shines on a gently rising flag.
Step 3: Step 3: Design
I applied the image above to express 阳. On a flag raising tower, the flag slowly rises in the eye salute from the people around it. It has an expression of cheer and positive energy.
Step 4: Step4: 3D Modeling and Printout
In the 3D model I built, it is what exactly my impression of 阳. And finally I could have a 3D printout of a Chinese character. Hope you guys have fun in following my guidance and build a unique one for yourself.
