- For Your Home
An espresso cup specially designed with fins, to ensure the successful deployment of your rocket fuel. All systems are go! Paraboloid bowl holds approximately 1.5 fl oz. or 45 mL. (Note that I previously claimed the cup held 60 mL. While my 3D modelling software still reports that as the internal volume, some combination of the printing process and glazing is robbing me of internal volume. Contact me if you'd be interested in a larger, more expensive 60 mL cup.)
After receiving feedback from Shapeways, I've created a slightly revised model for the cup. I'm told that this model will be easier to print and glaze, leading to a more reliable product. The changes are minor -- it's a little wider, a little heavier, and has more rounding on edges that were previously sharp (a 3D rendering shows the differences above).
Update (April 13th, 2013): The cup has had a great run on Shapeways, and I deeply appreciate the attention and positive feedback it has received. The bad news is that I've got to stop offering it for sale here. The good news is that the cup is now available commercially! It's being manufactured by Fred and Friends, sold under the name "Blast Off! Espresso Cup Set". It's already available for purchase online (perpetualkid.com, thinkgeek.com), and I'm sure you'll be able to find it in your favourite housewares store soon.
The Lichenfan light shade is pictured 3D printed in Shapeways 'sandstone' material, a very rigid, hard material that feels like sandstone. It is pictured here as a lamp shade.
This is Part A (the main part) and Part B of the lamp can be separately purchased 3D printed from Shapeways.
The lamp base, electricals and light fittings are not included. The lamp base pictured is 'Hemma' from IKEA. Alternatively just use the lamp shade with an L.E.D candle (battery powered 'candle'). See photographs of the light shade with an L.E.D candle.
Care instructions:The material is brittle if dropped on hard surfaces, so handle it as you would a precious ceramic object. SAFETY NOTE: Not suitable for use with real candles.
An organic-looking, sculptural fractal light shade, to add fascinating illumination to your room. This sculptural form is constructed using 3D printing. This technology can achieve intricate details and complex undercuts that could not be created using traditional manufacturing processes.
