Star Candle Holder

The inspiration for this project came from my love of candles. I have seen candles holders with star cutouts in the stores and decided to make my own. I based my creation of off the image below.

Process

To start this project I inserted a star canvas into Fusion 360. I then sketched this shape and copied and pasted in to make three different sized stars. From here, I created a cylinder shape and shelled out the inside. To make the edges nice and smooth, I filleted them. Finally, I made the star cutouts by cutting the star shape from the cylinder.

From here, an STL file was uploaded to the Ultimaker printer and printed in black.
