Snow Globe Sliceform
Here is the PDF.
Here is the .Studio file. I used cardstock.
Glue the six scenes together as shown
Add the tabs to the center of the scenery as shown.
Arrange the snow globe base pieces according to size and type of slit.
Attach all of the top facing slits first.
Arrange the globe sliceforms according to size and slit position.
Glue the scenery to the center sliceform as shown. Be careful not to cover the slit.
Another view of the attached scenery.
Continue adding the sliceforms.
I like to do all of the upward facing slits first.
Completed Snow Globe
Math used for the base were cone minus sphere equations:
Cone slice z = (height of cone/radius of base) x sqrt( x^2 + y^2)
Sphere slice x^2 + y^2 + (z - translation distance)^2 = (radius)^2
Translation distance = (height of cone cutoff) - (sphere radius) - (sink height)
Height of cone cutoff "a" comes from solving: (radius of bottom)/(radius of top) = ((height of base)+a)/a
Sink height = radius of sphere - h
h comes from solving h^2 + (radius of top)^2 = (radius of sphere)^2
