My friend and co-worker Annie recently got married. Annie is the kind of person who laser-cuts her Christmas cards and makes amazing and beautiful things (her wedding dress among these) of all sorts, compulsively. So, of course, we had to create for her a 3d printed tiara for her Big Day.
But it had to be uniquely Annie’s. So we started with a 3D scan of her head, using Viztu, Hypr3D. That worked well, giving us a 3D underlay of her head, guaranteeing that perfect fit, befitting of the beautiful bride.
Next we dove into the wide range of tiara styles to consider in the design. Yes, there are lots. These range from princess (fancy, crown-like, dripping with fussy details) to a more simple band (for someone who’s not ashamed not to be a princess). We settled on the latter, with an almost random smattering of spheres that intersect in an organic, chain-like pattern.
And here it is! Doesn’t she look wonderful?
