This pendant makes a great gift idea for Valentine's Day or an anniversary but it can also be given to a treasured friend, family member or s...ignificant other just to let them know how you feel about them. The sound wave is of the quote said first by Morgan Stark and then later by Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame.
The model can be scaled in slicing software depending on whether it is being printed as a necklace pendant, key chain or earring. The scale of the model will determine what nozzle size needs to be used in order to print every piece of the sound wave. Take care when scaling the model as the thickness of the print in some areas may be prone to breaking at smaller scales.
If you could please post any makes or feedback you have that would be greatly appreciated!
Includes a new version of the STL file in addition to the original. This version should be easier to print as the sizing of the bars is more consistent with the addition of chamfers instead of fillets around the loop section for better printing and should be easily printed with a 0.3mm nozzle.
The printed model should be ready for use upon removal from the build plate, however there may be the need to remove wisps from stringing.
How I Designed This
First, I got a quote that I wanted to create a sound wave of and typed it into Word.
I then highlighted the text and used the Read Aloud tool, making sure to record the audio using OBS.
Next, I imported the audio from the recording into Audacity and took a screenshot of the visualised sound wave.
Finally, I inserted the image into a sketch in SolidWorks where I drew around the sound wave to create an outline which I then extruded to create a 3d model. I added a loop to the end so that it could be put onto the chain of a necklace or other item such as a keychain and saved as an STL file so that it can be put into slicing software.
3d model print parameters
0.2-0.4mm nozzle depending on scale to ensure all parts of sound wave are printed.
