So here is my very first post. I was also inspired by the cryptex here: https://youtu.be/OAgdxRz9CXs as many others. This is my take.
I wanted to focus on some of the materials and minor changes that would make it more my style. I also wanted to challenge myself with a more complex build to really try and challenge my ideas of what could be made on a glow forge.
The creation process for me is a different one as I have a condition called Aphantasia. This means I have no minds eye and cannot visualize anything. So when I built this, I had to simply start printing some of the original designs just so I could touch them and start to understand how this would work. I printed several rings just to understand them and make minor modifications.
This is one of my early prints so I am really still learning. But the glowforge opens up some new doors for me to create things that really make me happy. I have been so impressed (and inspired) by others that I thought I would post some of my work and experience so that someone, like me, might see it and say wow, that looks fun. Thanks to everyone else for sharing.
