Here 3D printing shows us how easy even absurd ideas and associations can become real.
It widens the borders of our imagination! This designer made a very good isue! It let us think about the sources and origin of exiting design.

Hhmm... so why is this exact same mug, exact same photo, also on i.materialise.com?

Which company really made it?

Since "the competitor" allows only products they have printed to be in their gallery, I guess the answer is "not Shapeways".

That's indeed strange, the competitor has good quality.

Hi guys,

The link belongs to the same designer on another platform.
We encourage our shop owners to be successful and having many avenues of sales outlets is a great way to make more sales!

Best,

Nice design, but don't you think that it will be difficult to drink from it, as its width is more than its height, and also it has spikes over its front. Maybe my perception is wrong.
Hi
well I don't know how you drink out of a cup but I drink from the side ( perpendicular to the handle) not accros from the handle..
yes you can drink very well from it, no danger ;-) the only thing is that since it is rather shallow and the sides are a quite flat angle the liquid can swoosh around quite easily and maybe spill. ( psst: I think materialise, scuplteo and shapeways subcontract ceramics at the same place.. just like metals.. )
