Phew! What a week! Defo glad to be home and cracking on with more work.
In the meantime I didn’t get to show you the finished napkin ring that I made with the CoLiDo 3d pen the other day so, guess what I’m showing you in this post…?
First, let me remind you that I was using the CoLiDo 3D pen (the same team that I got the 3D printer from) which is available from Create and Craft TV – here is a little video they made about the pen …
Now, after the other week, when I posted in 3D Thursday 6 – Playtime With The 3D Pen my results from using the 3D pen, I thought that it would be good to combine the 3D Pen with the 3D Printer.
Whilst at the Create and Craft TV studios I also got the theme for this nailed too.
Snoozing in between shows apparently.
I therefore created a poinsettia template and used the 3D pen to trace out the petals/leaves – because aren’t poinsettia petals actually leaves …? – and then shaped them as I did for the flowers the other week.
I then designed a thin tube, based on the measurements of a loo roll, in 3D Builder and then set this to print on the CoLiDo 3D printer.
After, it was simply a case of combining together with some pinflair glue gel.
What do you think? Did you think you could achieve this with a 3D pen? Are there any ideas already popping into your heads?
Well, I’ll leave you to cogitate for now and of course many thanks for popping in.
Right, time for me to pop off, ciao for now.
Hopefully see you again soon!
