Bezier Heart Bracelet in OpenScad by MakeALot
In this project, MakerBot Operator MakeALot makes excellent use of WilliamAAdams’ Bezier Heart in OpenSCAD. He redesigned one of his bracelets to include inlay settings to match the hearts model — so you can print the bracelet and hearts in two separate colors, and then fix them afterwards. There are many projects up on Thingiverse that are assemblies of multiple parts, but printing decorative inlays in multiple colors is an under-utilized easy hack for upping the wow factor for your designs.
In my opinion, the above color choices work really well.1 Most important to pull this off — MakeALot notes that both the hearts and the heart settings are flat-backed. The extra math and geometry he put into the problem goes a long way to make the inlay process quick and clean.
- Perhaps Green ABS set in Yellow ABS would be less appealing? I do not like green hearts and bands…. [↩]
