Out of the Box

I meant to throw this in too since @endlessfix had me doing an infinite number of bauble versions.

This is driving me nuts, every time I sit down to have a coffee I’m compelled to make a different shaped bauble.

Me too! I can’t stop, I’m avoiding my work, I’m neglecting my family.

Nice, a good mix. My problem is I make them then don’t bother saving them.
I had another coffee and it led to this apple.

Nice. Good looking render too. Are you stitching the first spiral path manually from the hidden geometry of the final shape? Or are you starting with a spiral sphere then manipulating the spiral from there? I only save the ones I try to print.

Yes pretty much this, I make the shape I want and take a sliver from it as you describe. The benefit of that is you get a controlled mesh of geometry for the face that can easily flip and match. If you try to skin the spirals you can end up with faces that won’t blend nicely.

I made these ornaments for Christmas for my kids. They were 3D printed in color by Shapeways.
