3d Modeling

I began playing with 3d modeling after reading an article in Wired magazine last year about advances in 3d printing technology.  I have enjoyed learning about modeling itself, but I am also excited about using it in the math classes I teach.  I have only printed a few models so far, but there are some more in the works.  These are the models I have printed so far.

If you are interested in modeling, I have posted a number of resources about modeling with openSCAD.

This is an olive oil dipping dish I made for Erin for Valentine’s Day.  You fill the dish with olive oil, and then add just enough balsamic vinegar to fill in the heart.
