What is going to be the next Strandbeest?

How about 28 moving gears in a cool mesmorising desk toy printed in WSF:

How about my new Plussier Cuff in Gold or Silver?
Engraved with inspiring words and phrases intended to make the wearer think positive, do good, and smile! #HallOfFame

I'm very curious to see how my squares & circles ring looks in real life!

but also the weave ring would be very cool!

If only there were a company willing to promote their awesome printing materials and showcase a few designers, too? ;-)

I’ve been sitting here dreaming of what my 3D model will look and feel like in Premium Silver or Gold Plated Brass. Software rendering will only take me so far – I guess it’s back to dreamville for a while.

Just in case, I’ll leave this link here and see what happens.

I recently started experimenting with incorporating my woven models into ceramic models. Here's one of my attempts!

I like this one more, but it may be too big:

Mold makers will cry when they see these:
but I would like to showcase my own work:
thought it may not be showing the full possibility of 3D printing.

I really do think the Ear-Bone demonstrates in an exemplary way the virtues of EP. I struggled but failed to make this model work in WSF, and when EP arrived it was like the Shapeways fairy god-mother had touched the model with her wand. Suddenly it worked... the gadget grabbed hold of the cords and wouldn't let go without a fight. It does whatever work I need it to do. I now can't imagine how I tolerated my earbuds without it.

p.s.: you mean tag my model with HallOfFame on Flickr, right? (do tags on Flickr actually need hashtags?)

Hi! I just launched a new jewelry collection in nylon plastics. This project was a co-creation project between designer and a 3d modeler. We’re both excited about the end-result and would love to hear from the community what they think! The collection combines a smooth and textured line. Creating the textured line has taken a while to develop as I wanted as much detail as possible in the dots and holes in every single piece. My personal favorite and the piece I would love to be considered for the Hall of Fame is the textured cuff: #HallofFame

Maybe you like this ;-)

Please consider my cave-themed sake/espresso cup!

There's also a companion sake bottle but it hasn't been printed yet.

Last year the makerfaire display lacked some squee. Fix? Adorability of full color sandstone figurines.

Bunny paper clip holder!

Chubby unicorn!

Reading through the instructions and comments on this thread, it's unclear #HallOfFame where to place the #HallofFame info you mentioned above #HallOfFame.

I'm excited about completing a project and this Chess Knight #HallOfFame was the final piece. I just place an order #HallOfFame for the Knight.

You add it as a tag on the right hand sidebar
#17.1 Natalia on 2013-08-27 16:01 (Reply)
I am only now seeing this clarification. I've added the tag in the right place. I hope I can still be considered.

This woven bell fits snuggly around a Christmas light! A great light display when printed in WSF. #HallOfFame

How about a Celtic knot Trefoil pendant?
#19 Dan Foley (Homepage) on 2013-08-27 04:49 (Reply)
These are great everyone!
Tags should be on your Shapeways model page so we know we can print it, not on Flikr.
Thanks! Keep them coming, you have 24 hours left :-)

The nuts and bolts on this 5mm long wheel stop are as small as you can get for printing in FUD:

This FUD switchstand's a good example of lots of tiny moving parts that fit together perfectly: I can send you some assembled and painted units if Mitchell doesn't have time to build some.

"Tree Of Life" Pendant

The outer branches envelop and encage the Tree Of Life that grows protected and hidden within.

This intricate design can only be realised through 3d printing technology.

My woven purse shows off the flexibility of WSF.

My Entanglement pendant should look great in silver or gold-plated brass, and has an intricate interior:

My Spinning Star Vase and Dish may not be quite as intricate as Vertox's vase, but I think they do give an idea of some of the possibilities.

Spinning Star Vase:

Spinning Star Dish:

Finally, I think my Moody Heart and Flower-Heart Clock both show the possibilities of Full-Color Sandstone, with coloring generated algorithmically based on and enhancing the shapes. I especially love the enhanced shadows on my Moody Heart.
