I briefly thought of doing a full size weathervane, but I don't have the room.




I chose a small desktop version in steel from Shapeways for that Rustic look.

I love the W-H-A-T ? instead of the N-S-E-W.

Yep. The steel turned out good and was relatively cheap.

It's actually less noticeably textured in real life, I just got a picture showing the grittiness.

Wow, that would be cool. I have some 3D modeling skills, but people are difficult. I can print 3D STL files in color plastic at Shapeways. I'm on their pilot program.

Yep. The cane is cool. I did that one in another thread. I still haven't found the time to finish my "Book #3" yet though.

Nice Jintosh, I do some modeling too but I also own a MakerBot Replicator 5th gen. Haha I've been working on some fun projects lately too. Mostly Destiny based atm since I'm a big fan and the new expansion comes out next month

I think the letters are in the wrong order. If you look at the screenshots you'll see the question mark from below and if the letters are in a horizontal plane than the W and the T should be on the other sides.

Not criticizing, I just noticed it.

My original orientation was based on what I had first thought was looking DOWN on the vane.
After you pointed out the flaw, I realized my screen cap (post 1) was looking UP from the ground.
That changed the obvious orientations. The new orientation should be correct.
They skewed the perspective in the pic, that makes it hard to match up.
