New custom 3d print: Hexagonal candle holder
I’m stuck with hexagons for the time being, I might as well accept it.
Last night I took a couple hours modeling up a candle-holder in Maya using hexagonal polygonal mesh. Was an enjoyable process creating Python scripts for the generation and attaching of the mesh to the NURBS cylinder I used for the overall volume. The whole thing took just under four hours to print on my Makerbot Replicator.
It easily fits a votive candle, or any other candle less than 2 1/4″ in diameter. See more info on it, and download the .stl file for printing over on Thingiverse.
