Our Passion is Everything 3D • Our Focus is Mechanics • Our Tool is Blender • Our Method is Math
OTVINTA.com is a collection of video tutorials on 3D modeling and 3D printing. This web site also contains resources in support of the procedures described in the tutorials, such as online calculators, as well as the end results: the 3D-printable models of objects designed in these tutorials.
We love to design mechanisms, and then 3D-print them. Over the years, we have designed quite a few, and thought it would be a good idea to share them with others. That is how this web site came to be.
We love Blender and not just because it's free (although it is certainly a factor.) We think it's great because, to paraphrase an American president, it is software of the smart people, by the smart people, for the smart people.
Many people think Blender is not suitable for engineering design. Our tutorials prove that with proper math backing, Blender can be used to design mechanical parts and mechanisms quite successfully, and test them too.
Please contact us if you have questions, suggestions, or would like us to customize our designs for your needs. We can be commissioned to print, and ship to you, the parts for any of our models at a reasonable fee. We are also available to do custom design work.
We are based in New York City.
