DIY Style – Sun Embellishment Tutorial – Instructions:

If this is your first 3D project and you need additional help, I did a post on setting up your 3D Printer and making your first project.

  1. In Silhouette Studio, create your sun design or do what I did – use a dingbat font. If you are using a font, make sure all the pieces of the image are connected. I used the Weld tool to connect my sun pieces
  2. In the Silhouette 3D Software, open your sun design
  3. A pop-up will appear: Import As
  4. Select Extrusion – then your design will appear in 3D, then if necessary, adjust the height (or other dimensions)
  5. Select the 3D Print Tab on the right
  6. Select the Quality (I used the Standard option)
  7. Press Print. The machine will heat up and print – you will see the countdown of time as well
  8. Once your sun is printed, let it cool then remove the platform from the printer
  9. Use the spatula to gently remove your design and any extra filament
  10. Load the platform back into the printer
  11. Open your jump ring with pliers – I used 2 sets of pliers (one in each hand) to twist (one side toward you, the other side away from you) the jump ring so that the ends opened forward and backward
  12. With the jump ring ends open, put your 3D sun on one end then connect with the hole on the zipper of your bag or tote
  13. Close the jump rings with pliers
