'Snow flake' challenge

Hello,
I was wondering if this could be a challenge for others to make the most beautiful snowflake. In my case I used the Dynamo sandbox to print the snowflake on a 3d printer.



Here is Dynamo and STL file:
snow_flake_01.stl (77.3 KB)
DS_snow_flake.dyn (46.7 KB)

The Koch Star/Snowflake that I’d posted elsewhere a few weeks ago

I was like “I should give a try” until I saw that and gave up :smiley:

Hello, could you please help me? I tried something new. I can’t find solution how to close curve to extrude solid:

Thank you. This is very nice @Vikram_Subbaiah. But it is unfortunately for me and my printer not printable. I hope to find a solution to limit the maximum overhang to 50 degrees in some time.

That should do the work for printing - since it is outputing a solid only.
I tried replicating the generator at the link you sent.
The code could be better, but for a first draft it’s ok.
It is all ProtoGeometry and can be done with nodes.

The use of T-Splines should be mandatory :slight_smile:
To create a GIF is another story
But the Packages are there if you know how to find them

How about a fractal snowflake with adjustable inputs? :snowflake: :sunglasses:

Quick update to the above.
Added a variable for more shape control. :slight_smile:
A good one to run through some generative design @JacobSmall ?

I love these types of threads!

And the use of Generative Design is awesome! Adding a ‘write to stl’ which has a GUID generation for the name and you might be able to generate and then fabricate an entire blizzard…

Keep them all coming everyone!

Now the question is, “can I pretend this is work and spend a couple of hours doing this today?” :joy:

I may try a ‘proper’ one later but for now here’s mine (not very snowflakey I know but it’s got the right symmetry :smiley: )

I stuck it into the GD too :smiley:

Still not perfect… but … have real work I should be doing :rofl:
