New Tutorial! How to Make Unicorn Horn for Dual Extrusion #3DPrinting @BCN3DTech @adskFusion360

Last year I put together a Unicorn Horn in Autodesk Maya, using non-linear deformers. This year, I wanted to challenge myself to design a version using Autodesk Fusion 360. I figured out an interesting method that uses a tapered coil to create 3D sketch geometry for making a loft in the sculpt environment. I learned how to project 3D geometry into a sketch by watching a tutorial by Taylor Stein. I designed it specifically for dual extrusion 3D printing, but it can also be printed with a single color / extruder. I plan to fit a 12x NeoPixel ring into the horn and make a wearable for Halloween.

In this tutorial we’ll make a Unicorn horn in Autodesk Fusion 360. This project utilized the coil feature to create 3D sketch geometry for making a spiral. We’ll use the sculpt environment to create t-spline body’s and create a unicorn horn, ideal for dual extrusion 3D printers.
