Adding Voronoi Pattern with Meshmixer

vase with voronoi pattern

I have always been fascinated with Voronoi patterns and placing them onto objects. They add an organic and random feel to many objects, but they can be difficult to create. I found this cool tutorial on Instructables that uses Meshmixer to add a Voronoi pattern to an object.




Learning Ideas

Play!

Play with the different software packages until you find one that ‘clicks’ for you. That makes sense to you and you will remember how to use when you come back to it a week later.

Each has their own personality and one may be better for the type of work you hope to design.




Vase 126

This vase is a slight diversion from the designs I have been doing. I am still using vase mode here although the closeup shot of the lips looks as if it has an inner shell.

In real life this vase is beautiful with it’s gently sweeping curves.




Vase 123

The Timberfill Rosewood fillament is working pretty good. If you look closely you can see the print is a little ‘hairy’. These fibers tend to clog the nozzle so I often pause the printer before it starts printing the side walls and quickly clean the nozzle.




Experiment in Wood

I love the look of objects that are printed in ‘wood’ filaments. At least when I can get them to print.

The main issue I’ve had is the nozzle clogs up. But  today I got a roll of Fillamentum Timberfill Cinnamon filament. 




Edge Test

With a mug you want the edge to be functional so it doesn’t drip and is comfortable on your lips. But you also want it to be aesthetically pleasing.

When designing a vase the aesthetics might be the most important factor.
