Twist and offset ends of a ring

(Marcel) #1

I am having trouble making a ring where the band is twisted and the ends are offset to be able to build a platform for a stone. The other end is tapered to a point and soldered to close the ring.
My problem is joining the end where there is not stone to the end holding the stone.
Can anybody help-? Please?

Duplicated thread:


But this time with a .3dm file.

How did you create the ring in the .3dm file you uploaded? Did you use a centerline curve? If so was that curve closed?

I created the ring you saw on the .3dm as follow:
1_ square section extrusion
2-twist that extrusion 360 degre
3- flow along surface that twisted extrusion onto a round surface in the shape of a ring.
4- delete the surface ring and keep the twisted one.
My question is : how to offset one end away from the other, and once offset, how to make the end pointy " like the tail of a snake?


Not 100% sure what you want but here is maybe something that can help you
