I needed to stretch my brain a bit tonight so I thought that I would "thread" one of the 2d sketches that I sitting around on my desktop.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind killer.

Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
When the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain. 

 Frank Herbert, author of Dune

I think I'll need to sit on this one for the night and revisit it in the morning and see if its lack of symmetry still bugs me.

Hi EHNisja, haven't been on Rendo for ages, but had to let you know that I think this is amazing!

Don't suppose a mini tut is up for grabs?

Dick Cavett: "Do you consider yourself a disciplined guy? Do you get up every day and 'go to work'?"
Jimi Hendrix: "Well, yeah. I try to get up every day."

Long time no see nexxus,  If you search the archives you'll see some older tuts that I have posted.  Use "celtic" in your search request.   I'll be more than happy to explain any questions that you may have.

I fixed up the symmetry and now on to the filleting ...

I put 0.010" fillets where they would go easily. On the pipes that cross back on each other I would need to split and shrink the surfaces in order to get a fillet to go. I didn't do those.

Off to Shapeways with this one to see if it's printable ...

They say that it's printable, at just under $100 in glossy silver. The basic dimensions are 1.8 x 1.8 x .2 inches.

I put a loop on it to tread the chain through, it almost took as long to make it as the rest of the pendant!

I like that loop.  Be sure and show us some pictures when it comes.

Will do, I just need to come up with the $100 first!

I couldn't leave this one well enough alone. I was bothering me that it too thin and flat looking. My first thought was to try to bend it to give a bit of a crown, but that only will only work in one plane at a time. Then it dawned on me that is what the "cage edit" command is for. I made a "bounding box" cage that was a 4x4 degree 3 and moved the center points up .375" to give the piece a more massive look without adding any more material to it. I think it worked out well.

What do y'all think?

It racks the loop a bit but I think I can still get the chain though it, thats all the matters there.

Here's a side view showing an Ø1/8" ref. There's enough material to make it work.
