WATCH This...Part 3

So I printed the outline of the watches, cut one out, and wrapped around my arm. My measurements were closely true to size, just the ends of the band slightly overlapped. I had to make the shapes (heart, circle, diamond) bigger to hold the watch face and from the look on my wrist, it is not too big. I like the size. I can really see this turning out pretty cool.
I think some small adjustments need to be made and I will be ready for the first 3d print of it.

WATCH this...part 2

Here's what I came up with as an idea for my watch. I love the idea of circle links. The middle piece is where a watch face can be place (I didn't that spot on the heart yet).
Then it was suggest that the linked band piece could be heated and formed to clutch around the wrist, which would be cool.

Still, going to work on a couple more sample and get some measurements down.

to be continued...

So I thought I posted these already, but...guess not.

We were required to make a key chain samples for class. I love wolves, so I though I would try to find something I would like carrying around as a key chain. I found this image
and made an outline of it in Illustrator. After a little help I placed the file into Tinkercad, scaled it to the right size, and added a hold for the key ring to go through. This was my final result:

I  think it turned out well. Would be great to see it printed and then I could carry it around.  :)

WATCH this...

I think I want to try to make a watch band for this next project. It will be one where I can snap any watch face in it. I tried to do some sketches, but not how I want it to be exactly, so here are some images of concept or ideas I like until I get my sketches down.

Maybe I will try to make a watch that can slide on to any kind of strap.

I'll keep looking for more idea: http://www.thingiverse.com/search/page:1?q=watch&sa=
