Beautiful Chunky Bracelet by tinkerbelle May 31, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

Simple. Elegant. Parametric Faceted bracelet that any lady would love. Looks like a nut. Guess that makes her arm the bolt. =) The must have accessory of the year! As seen on CES 2012 runway, MAKE magazine, and Robot Film Festival red carpet.

My first 3D printed project! Here's the OpenSCAD and STL files.

Collaborative project with thingiverse.com/beatbots

About 30 minutes for the original size. You can reduce the print time by making the bracelet thinner

About how long did this take to print?

Thanks

I love the rattle idea! :) Clever clever.

The soft focus on your picture really solidifies the 80s look.

I set for 0% fill, 1 extra shell, printed in clear PLA, and dropped eight purple beads in to make it rattle.

Chunky! It's like the 80s are back again, again!

Yeah the 80's were the zombie decade. They just keep coming back from the dead...
