Hello Kitty Bow with Holes for Necklace or Bracelet
by jennnergy, published
I haven't really seen any Hello Kitty bows around here, and the ones I have seen I'm not too impressed with. I decided to make my own, so here it is! Have fun! The only thing I ask is that you do not attempt to sell these, please. :D
It was really small, so I enlarged it in solidworks. It was still pretty small, but you can enlarge it in MakerWare if you want it bigger. My preference is for it to be thin but large.
Here's the specs for my most recent print:
X: 50.80 mm
Y: 41.24 mm
Z: 6.10 mm
I like the thickness at 6.10 mm, no matter what size. I might adjust to be a tiny bit thicker if I were to make it any larger, but it's a decent thickness.
You can try what you like best, but I printed it at:
Layer Height: 0.1
Printed in red, and switched the filament for the border to be black. Wish there was a way to make the outer shell black as well, but that wouldn't work on my machine.
I recently acquired a Replicator 2X, so now I can make the bow with 2 colors. This allowed me to make the sides black as well as the outline of the bow.
I've updated the files to include 2 separate STL's; the inner and the outer part of the bow. What I did was add them both to MakerWare, center both of them on the build plate, then make sure that the inner bow is 3mm above the build plate (z).
If you want to adjust the size (I know I did), the easiest way is to click on the uniform scaling option, adjust by a percentage and keep that consistent between both files, then unclick the uniform scaling option, and resize z.
For my first attempt at this bow, printing in ABS, I used 125% uniform scale on both files, then changed the outer bow Z to 6.01mm. The inner bow Z was changed to 3mm.
Let me know how it goes! I'll post a picture of my print once it's finished.
