Description

My attempt at a bracelet. Thought the kids would like to use it for a Halloween themed bracelet. No luck. Next option was adding Egyptian hieroglyphics for lack of better ideas. Alter the array "word" (line 6) to spell out an obscure message. More letters = longer bracelet.

I have added the bash scripts for changing list2.txt into an openscad array as well as the script I used to convert this into separate svg files with Inkscape on the off chance someone may find it useful.

The bracelet was easy enough. Designing a clasp/hook that worked reliably with a thin bracelet was painful. None of these work well.

Note, if you do not have "Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphs" installed, go to line 116:
Change:

translate([pos,0,0]) scale([sc,sc,1]) rotate([0,0,00]) text(text = str(t), font = font, size = 57.3, valign = "center", halign="center");
//translate([pos,0,0]) scale([sc,sc,1]) translate([-55,16,0]) import(str(folder,word[nr],".svg"));

to:
//translate([pos,0,0]) scale([sc,sc,1]) rotate([0,0,00]) text(text = str(t), font = font, size = 57.3, valign = "center", halign="center");
translate([pos,0,0]) scale([sc,sc,1]) translate([-55,16,0]) import(str(folder,word[nr],".svg"));

Extract svg.zip so that all the files are in a folder called "svg" along with bracelet.24.scad.

Materials and methods

PLA. This should be printed at 0.1mm resolution with 100% infill. Use smallest value for space. The Dremel 3D40 can just manage with 0.32. Everything is fused on less than 0.5 with Monoprice. Slow down wall speed.
