Make a snake

Post by Wayne Locke »

Can someone chime in with their ideas for designing and cutting a snake like this. It will be about 20 to 24 inches.

Buy the Rod of Asclepius clipart from Design and Make. I cut this for a physician about 3 months ago.

The other day I was playing around with Aspire's Clipart by merging and copying it to the other side and doing a double-sided, weird looking walking stick. Also, years ago, I did a walking stick using Aspire's Clipart but modeled it in Rhino and use the Rotary to cut it, but something like that could also be made doing the double-sided project.

I need to make an actual shaft with the snake to function as a ceremonial mace.

This is a version of the Veterinary Symbol I designed to carve for a local veterinarian(sp). I never did carve it, but plan to one of these days.

Model the snake and the stick separately.

Then snipe and tilt the snake model where you want it to appear to go behind the stick

CG Trader has a 3-D model for $9.00. You can do a double-sided project with it to make a ceremonial mace. http://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models ... rint-model. Or you can do what Randall suggested and then copy the object to the other side and do it as a double-sided project.
