3D Print Project: Fake Gold Chains

in print3d •  last month 

No, it's not just another timelapse.

This time, per requests from friends and family... I've decided to see if I could design and print some fake gold chains because.. well, I don't really know. Came up with some fake rapper names and got to business. I didn't think they would turn out so awesome honestly. So, as you can probably tell I don't do designs normally, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Here's the final product.

Off to TinkerCAD to do some designing (I have no idea what I'm doing)!

Really all I did was use the built in text editor to add thickness to the letters, then I added small circles to the edges of the letters to attach the chain. The chain surprised me a couple weeks ago because I didn't think it would work so well. Printed a couple different sizes and picked the best.

Of course I have a timelapse. Here it is.

Here's the final print of the lettering design.

Now to put it all together and apply a large amount of gold metallic spray paint. I hung these bad boys up outside in a tree and prayed them. Then found some fake diamonds, used some super glue, and viola. Here you have it, 3D printed gold chains with diamonds.
