Happy Valentine’s Day! In celebration, today we made a Möbius strip in the shape of a heart. The OpenSCAD code was kindly provided by kitwallace.
From the side you can more clearly see its Möbius-ness:

OpenSCAD code: http://www.geekhaus.com/makerhome/day172_kitwallace_mobiusheart.scad
Settings: MakerWare .3mm/low with no raft and no supports in 26 minutes.
Technical notes: Below is kitwallace’s OpenSCAD code, in case you want to change any of the parameters for your own print. The heart equations are the same ones we used in Day 133, with a sine curve thrown in on the z-coordinate for curviness.
