Years ago, I designed a series of Tardis and Dalek rings as an experiment in SolidWorks modeling. I wanted to have a ring design that would support a sculptural element with a shank that would change proportionally to feel natural in a wide variety of ring sizes. I was also way into Dr. Who at the time. Continue reading
So, after some trial and error, I finally have some lovely TARDIS rings to show off. They’re cast from a high resolution 3d print generated in SolidWorks. One of the beautiful bits about using a CAD program to drive the design is that I can change the proportions of the ring, shank, and TARDIS independently while keeping it within some attractive, reasonable proportions.
In just a few days I’ll be revealing the fruits of an effort that has lasted months. I’ve designed some adorably tiny TARDIS and Dalek rings for your wearing pleasure, and the final silver castings will be arriving before the ides of October.
I can’t wait to wear mine and reenact epic battles for time and space while wearing my best clever glasses. They’ll be available to purchase soon on Sleek and Destroy.
Oh, and you remember those laser cut leather goggles I made a while ago? They’re coming back with a vengeance.
