Commissioned to construct a belt buckle using Rhinoceros, my intention, naturally, wasn't to just build a ordinary buckle. I wanted my object to have an extra feature, something fun and practical - so I designed an anchor form containing a concealed corkscrew
Our object had to be 3D-sintered and we had to include at least one moving element. In my case the buckle had two moving elements: the rotating connection between the ring and the corkscrew and of course the corkscrew itself, which could be pulled out of the anchor by rotating it.
Sintered and cleaned up, I stuck the two parts together and voilà: the anchor buckle was born!
