Hey Aras, wrote you before, but I am not sure if you received my message because my account was not validated. Can you tell me how you received the geometry on the picture of step 4 from your earring project. I am desperately looking for a solution to get this effect on smooth geometry. THANKS
I forgot exact steps, so I'd go with what I have written in that blog post (http://aras-p.info/blog/2012/12/14/adventures-in-3d-printing/) -- I think I did Filters -> Remeshing -> Surface Reconstruction: Poisson in MeshLab.
