This project is a remix of the nice Art Nouveau Hair Ornaments by WeeksB. You can print the music ones here, or follow the instructions below to create one for yourself! Note that there are two sizes, the smaller one is the original size/design by WeeksB. The larger one is altered to work for people with more hair.
I'm also uploading the stl file created in the how-to video.
Be sure to print at 100% infill so it's stronger.
Solid colors are great, but try painting the top design in different colors, even metallic gold / silver.
I highly recommend sanding the tines until they're Super Smooth! Remember to sand safely: don't breathe the dust and rinse with cold water when you're done sanding.
- Started with the Art Nouveau Hair Ornament by WeeksB.
- Removed top in Tinkercad
- Added various top designs (see below for how to)
Create your own "uniquely yours" hair ornament. This is an artsy approach to design -- girls of all ages with basic computer skills can do it!
Here's a video walkthrough of the following: https://youtu.be/D1OaTZaojsk
Download hairfork_plain.stl or large_hairfork_plain.stl
Open stl file in Tinkercad
Go to https://pixabay.com/ and search for a vector graphic that you like. Simple, large designs work best.
Download the vector graphic that you like
Log on to http://www.selva3d.com/ and upload your chosen vector graphic
Download the free version of the resulting stl file
Import the stl file into your Tinkercad file
Resize and arrange the top to your liking. Make the height of the object 4.5.
Download your stl file from Tinkercad
Print it on your printer!
- 2D to 3D
- Basic Design
- Basic Engineering
- Working With STL
- Is It Printable?
1 hour, if all accounts are easily available to students and students have had prior instruction in basic Tinkercad operation (how to move/resize things, how to activate the ruler and change dimensions - Tinkercad has great tutorials for this)
Make sure computer & internet is working! Make sure each student has access to an account at https://www.tinkercad.com/ and http://www.selva3d.com/ Make sure you school district allows access to https://pixabay.com/ (a great free source of vector graphics). YOU the teacher need to understand what is printable and what is not so you can pass the knowledge on to your students. Basic knowledge of Tinkercad operation is also helpful.
