I lost my wife’s wedding band a few years ago. She handed it to me while I was driving and asked me to take it to a jeweler to get it hammered back “in round”. Of course, I lost it immediately.
My original wedding band I still have, but it’s always been a little unsatisfying. My ring finger is thinner than hers, and the pattern never quite matched where the original jeweler sized it down.
So, for our 10-year anniversary, I’m making bespoke rings. And because I’m an Open Source guy, I had to do it with Open Source Software. And of course, the code for the rings will be open source too.
Code? For Wedding Rings?
If you have a WebGL browser (Firefox or Chrome, at this writing) you can see the demo below.
In true open-source fashion, I had to develop a pull request for the upstream to make this render, due to an odd limitation in WebGL.
Warning: it takes a 10-30 seconds to render. Use the mouse wheel (or equivalent) to zoom in.
