Portuguese crest pendant (ongoing)
I started this project as a way to improve my design skills in Solidworks, as well as learn about molding and casting metals. I wanted to make something that I could display after it was finished, and I decided to work off of a Portuguese crest. Half of my family is Portuguese and it is a culture I feel very connected with. I decided this would be a great concept for a pendant. I based it off the logo for the Portuguese national football team, which I am a huge fan of.
The final CAD result was a raised model of the crest. The next step is to 3d print the pendant with plastic, create a mold using delft clay, and cast it using silver. I plan to begin this process in the fall of 2021.
