Day 67 - The knot 8_19

MakerHome

Technical notes: As always, this knot was made in Mathematica using Cantarella data. The real reason for printing the knot 8_18 yesterday was to compare it to a print of 8_19 , the first non-alternating knot in the standard knot table.

MakerHome: Day 192 - Mesh-testing a Gyroelongated Pentagonal.

MakerHome

Expensiveware warning: On this blog I try to stick to free and commonly available software, but for todays object I am pulling out the big guns and using Mathematica , which is very much not free. However, Mathematica only reliably exports full models, not wireframes (as far as I can figure).

Day 150 - Trefoil torus knots

MakerHome

Making knot models that can export to STL files is easy to do in Mathematica (see Day 110 ), but Mathematica is not a free tool and not everyone has access to it. In addition, Mathematica does not always export reliable STL files.

Designer Spotlight: Jeremie Brunet

Shapeways Blog

I’m also a member of several mathematical art associations : Ars Mathematica, and the European Society for Mathematics & Arts. This week we are thrilled to highlight Jeremie Brunet, mechanical engineer and designer behind Jeremie Brunet 3D fractals.

Day 121 - Menger Coaster Set, Part 1

MakerHome

These were constructed in Tinkercad after importing a Menger sponge that was created in Mathematica (although we could also have imported one built in Minecraft; see Day 108 ).

Day 66 - The knot 8_18

MakerHome

Technical notes: This knot was made in Mathematica using Cantarella data, as usual.

Day 22 - 3D Stars

Day 144 - Volumes of Hanoi

MakerHome

The center piece was exported from Mathematica , and the rest of the model was made in Tinkercad (which came back from a sleep today after a large update - so glad you are back, Tinkercad!). The semester has begun and we are back to teaching calculus.

MakerHome: Day 276 - Petal conformation of 6_2

MakerHome

Technical notes, Mathematica flavor: Todays petal knot was designed and printed by JMU Student Jonathan Gerhard, using the method from Day 152 and data sent to us by Adams student Daniel Vitek. MakerHome. One 3D print every day from home, for a year. Welcome to MakerHome.

Day 32 - Icosahedron jawbreaker trap

MakerHome

If I were to do this again I would get a model from Mathematica and make sure it was rotated correctly before importing into Tinkercad The problem with Day 29''s Icosahedron Failure Bowl wasn''t with the model, it was with the machine.

Day 350 - Triple Bubbles

MakerHome

I tried to export the Wolfram object using Mathematica, but it was not the right kind of graphics object to allow an STL export. Alas, this in turn meant that I really needed to understand all the mathematics in the code, and also translate the code from Mathematica syntax to OpenSCAD syntax.

Technical notes: These knots were created by taking data provided by mathematician Jason Cantarella of the University of Georgia and using Mathematica to "tube" the data into a format that could be output as an STL file.

Day 14 - Dodecabubbles

MakerHome

Technical notes: The vertex and edge data for the frame of the dodecahedron was taken from Mathematica using PolyhedronData["Dodecahedron", "Edges"]. Inspired by JMP''s Bubble Frames on Thingiverse, today we have a dodecahedron frame for dipping into bubble solution to make a minimal surface.
