Here is a diamond. I reckon this is something you can add to your jewelry!


Bonus if you print it in PLA. The angles are 45 so it may or may not work!

I made this in rhino by drawing the diamond shape and then rotating it 45 degrees a bunch of times.

diamonds forever :)

i really wonder how you printed this one on the wired mag (narrow part on the plate) and why it looks so big in that picture, guess its similar to how people look different on tv ;)

thanks for an inspiring company/website/stuff/....

Translucent blue PLA from ultimachine goes GREAT with this :-D

The picture in "Other people's copies" attracted a lot of comments, so Ill clarify that it was built in transparent PVC on a Solido SD300, not PLA.

It's illuminated by a multi-color light table available from American Science
amp; Surplus for just $2.99 at http://www.sciplus.com/recommend.cfm/recommendid/13377http://www.sciplus.com/recomme...

I highly recommend this accessory for anyone who builds PLA models. Frankly, I think a PLA model would probably look even better than my PVC one on the light table!

(PS: I posted another picture at http://mysd300.blogspot.com/2011/02/diamond-by-bre-pettis.htmlhttp://mysd300.blogspot.com/20... )

Perfect timing!

I'm working on some puzzle-themed gem holders. My goal is to devise a Makerbot-compatible structure, but I was worried that I'd need to devise some gem shapes for those who don't have gemstones lying around!

Your "diamond" could be an ideal susbstitute.

Note: there are some issues with the normals here. i think the rhino5 for mac still has a way to go.

When I loaded your .3dm file in Rhino I found that all the surfaces where separate objects. You should join them to a solid before converting the object to an stl-mesh. Just select all and hit the little puzzle-piece icon on the left side.

Thanks, I rebuilt it using octagonal pyramids, but that would have done it.

It's not normals-- there are holes (slits, really) along the edges! Not sure how those got introduced though...
