Valentine's Gift: Elegant Shell Case With Fawns

Introduction: Valentine's Gift: Elegant Shell Case With Fawns

I’ve always been a hater of Valentine’s day. The hearts, flowers and candies from a shop are just not for me. But I’ve always been a maker so I took this as an opportunity to create something original.

What you'll need:

  • 3D modeling tool. I was testing VECTARY
  • 3D printer and filament - I used Zortrax and Z-GLASS filament
  • Moss

Step 1: Step 1: Model the Shell Case

I decided to start with something practical. Although I’m just learning 3D modeling while testing new 3D tool VECTARY I created an elegant shell shaped case in less than half an hour.

Step 2: Step 2: 3D Print the Shell

I printed it on Zortrax 3D printer with transparent filament.

Step 3: Step 3: Design and Print the Fawn

I modeled a little fawn (again at VECTARY) and 3D printed it twice. make sure it has it's head a little up so both fwns look like they are looking at each other.

Step 4: Step 4: Add Moss

Moss added the right atmosphere to the final piece, but you can try glitters as well.

    This is so cute. I really like the moss grass because you can easily keep it alive indoors.
