In Creator's Studio this week, I created a name tag that can be attached to luggage or used as a zipper. I made the piece by first making a rectangle approximately 2.5 inches long. Then I place another smaller rectangle inside the larger object and made it a hole, so that it was like a box without a lid. Next, I selected a shape generator of the text, and made it spell my name, Anna Owens. I changed the font and placed it in the hole in the box. Fifth, I put a "Torus" or ring-shaped object on the side of the box so that the name tag would be able to be attached to a bag. Lastly, I aligned all of the shapes so that they would be evenly spaced and lined up and grouped the to make them become one object.
In Creator's Studio this semester, I would like to build a tall night-light made out of laser cut wood panes with different sized circles cut in it. I would like to do this project because I have always been interested in using circuts to put power into a light. This is facinating to me. Also, it would be very interesting to be able to laser cut wood into perfect circles, something I could never do by hand. I will have to research how to actually connect the circuts to make the light bright, and find a way to get that energy: battery, solar, plug in the wall, etc. Also, I have never laser cutted wood, so I will have to learn to do this as well. To make this night-light, I will need several panes of wood, a tall LED light, circuts, and black paint. In conclusion, I am very excited to start this!
