New earring design preview

Emerald_3dprint_earring_preview

Here's a very rough mockup of a new earring design I'm working on. I'm pretty excited about it. The main "stone" is of course fashioned after an emerald cut, and the others are "pearls." And looking at it on my ear, it has a kind of Victorian feel, but the 3D wireframe aspect definitely puts a different kind of spin on it. In black it's subtle yet surprising.

A new fan

This week, I was sitting in a coffee shop, assembling Wireframe Diamond Earrings for some recent Etsy orders (thanks Andrea and Jesse!). And I saw someone approach out of the corner of my eye. It was a 7 or 8 year old boy holding a skateboard, and he was looking intently at the diamond pieces. I told him how they were made, and he said "I just wanted to tell you they are really cool. I mean really cool." Made my day!

Google and Ponoko have a new contest to promote 3D printing.The challenge is to create some content (text, images or video), explaining how to use Google SketchUp for Ponoko 3D printing, with a first prize worth$1500. Sounds like fun!

 

Ponoko to offer 3d printing

Ponoko has started to offer 3d printing, in partnership with CloudFab. I'm excited to try out their 3d printing services. And I've been meaning to try their laser cutting services. It would also be interesting to try building a lamp I have an idea for with Personal Factory 4, which allows you to combine laser cutting, 3d printing and electronics in one product.
