About this Object

This is a ring from which hand towels could be hung (if you had one handy).


The "base" (the top, really) sits at the origin, and has a diameter of 2.6 units. The ring has a major radius of 3.5 units, and a minor radius of 0.2 units. The ring hangs from a point directly in front of the origin, 2 units in the Z direction.

Problems and Future Work

Smoother base. Make the ring easily rotatable (if a towel is hanging from here, the bottom of the ring is likely to be pushed out from the wall).
