A Moai Necklace inspired by \"Moai Necklace by open3dp.\" http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1986 It was modeled using SAGE and Implicit Solid Modeling. The horizontal holes were designed with pointed tops and should print on a RepRap style 3D Printer.

The Scaled25 is bigger than the Scaled10.
The Straight version is the one with straight sides instead of curved ones.

I have now added the equation, in a txt file, that describes the surface and a txt file version of the SAGE script that generated the model.

I have now added two versions of the stl files with fewer faces. These should be easier to print.

The SAGE ISM script was developed during a class at the Solheim Rapid Prototyping Lab @ Univ. of WA.

Nick, very cool. ISM Moai. Moai Madness continues!

The STLs are the original solid files. It is described by an equation built up in SAGE, a computer algebra system.

Sorry to disapoint you but STL are meshes, not solids.
I don
´t see any SAGE file too. ;)

There is now a SAGE file and the equation that describes the surface. :)

You are correct this part has no solid file of any kind. The STLs are the original MODEL files. I may add the SAGE script in the future. (Presently it is part of a much larger script I would need to clean up before I post) :)

"It was modeled using SAGE and Implicit Solid Modeling."
Why did you only post the stl-files and not also the original solid files?
