I've begun designing and printing 3D models, mostly using OpenSCAD, the open source programmer's CAD modeller.

Zarchscape in conjunction with 3d castle

OpenSCAD module to generate a simulated "terrain" over a rectangular region tiled with triangles. Inspired by a technique for making more interesting terrain in 3D games in the 1990s.

Janod Rocket cone replacement

Rocket cone

I designed a replacement nose cone for my youngest's Janod Rocket, after we lost the original. It's substantially based on one module from a "Nose Cone Library" by Garrett Goss, which he kindly released to the public domain. Part of the work is to incorporate a void to fit a small magnet.

I had a layer shift on my print, so the offset battery slot didn't work as intended. The white trim is adapted from the lid from some kitchen herbs. I ended up filleting out the battery hole region of the print and glueing the magnet and cone onto the white trim layer.

Castle iteration 2

Castle iteration 2

My very first design was a toy castle shape, initially to learn the tooling and also to see how techniques I developed playing with wadc might translate to 3D printing.
