Concepting

Brainstorming session to decide on small household items that could be printed in 3D. Settled on a whale themed ring holder as the first project.

First Pass

Roughed in shape and scale in Zbrush. Went through several variants with and without features such as eyes and mouths before deciding to keep things simple so that it would print smoother.

Test Prints

Utilized FlashForge 3D Printer to produce a number of prototypes. Learned how to format files for the printer and what worked and didn't work.
