Jewelry on Thingiverse

Stephanie and H1-H0's Jewelry includes a pendant, ring, and earrings, featuring a pattern that is based on the Fibonacci sequence and using a mathematical formula known as "Fermat's spiral".

These jewelry pieces can be printed in metal using the Shapeways service. They can also be printed in plastic from Thingiverse files using a standard desktop 3D printer. (Standard pendant chain and earring hooks can be added to complete the pieces.) 

Formulas for the spiral were generated using Rhino Python.

Chess Pieces

Chess Cheese on Thingiverse

Emilie and Claude-8's chess pieces are made with forms that won't collapse when printed with a paste-like substance such as cheese. Claude-8 is a special robot who can print pieces made out of cheese, but if your printer uses plastic, then you won't be able to eat these pieces at home!

Modular Hamster House

Modular Hamster House on Thingiverse

Charles and NiXie's hamster house is made from modular components that can be configured to suit a hamster keeper's needs.

The parts you see here can be printed in plastic from files that will be posted on Thingiverse and Git Hub shortly.

The clear tubes and capsules were printed and then polished by the i.materialize service. Typical home desktop 3D printers may not be able to print parts that look as clear as this, so you may want to add additional holes to the file to have a better view of your hamster.
