Very pleased to say Maddison our new granddaughter arrived safe and well on the 9th January. Mother and baby both doing very well.
I have been working on a hanging mobile for the bedroom for a few weeks now. I thought I would share the process.
Because I have very limited drawing ability I started with a clip art image taken from google. It’s not going into production and not being used commercially so I don’t think I have broken any rules.
The next step was to draw the outline I wanted and layout the various connecting sections. The mobile is 3D printed so any tolerances required are built into the drawing at this stage. As simple as this drawing looks there were many enjoyable hours spent revising and revisiting this process.
Then the individual parts of the mobile were produced from the initial layout.
As the process went along I test printed the pieces if changes had to be made to the fit or tolerances etc. I revised the main drawing and remodelled from the original.
The model is two sided. With the same image mirrored on the reverse surface.
