I've been doing some 3D modeling, designing another spotlight.
Here are the few things I learned for this project:
- When modeling shells use all of the existing parts (vitamins) to see how parts fit together. This saves a lot of filament.
- Create rough models for parts I don't have, to see how they would fit
- (more specific to openscad) Use 2d shapes and extrude them
- 2d polygons are flexible, but time consuming to design. It's ok to get started by combining squares and circles
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
