Trilobite shell
dadrummond @metalclarinet I'm really sorry to hear that. If it seems to be defective, Shapeways should take care of it. Which material did you get? Contact me directly if you'd like.

dadrummond @SurlySwede hey, that is terrific! (I also show mine on a slab filled with trilobite parts, mostly pygidia.) Yours looks great -- thanks for sharing!

dadrummond @juliannasuplicki I'm not sure of the shipping times. My experience has been that 3 weeks is typical (production + shipping) with some variation in both directions. And yes, the trilobite is available here (https://www.shapeways.com/product/NU5RTPWVE/trilobite-shell) or, if you fancy a fully reconstructed version, through me (direct-message me). Thank you for the compliment!

Trilobite shell
dadrummond @FairKara yes, sort of. I designed it to be worn as a pendant -- there is a post behind the mouthpart that will hold a 2mm cord. See picture. For more security, it's glue for now.

Trilobite shell
dadrummond @kolbe0132 yours should be more polished, in my view. I do think that the piece looks cool with that finish, but it's not what I expect for a polished model. If you do care, I strongly encourage you to contact Shapeways (service@shapeways.com) and request a reprint. They say they are working on this, and I believe them, but you've got to be happy with your piece. Here's a picture of two polished versions. The one on the right is not polished to standard, and it looks like yours. You have my full support here. I do believe Shapeways will do the right thing if they get the customer feedback (and not just my feedback). Anyone who encountered this issue should write to them.

dadrummond @kjham9 that's no good at all. Send me your address (Contact link on my profile or on this page), and I'll make it right. I think you're right to be upset. I've made all "polished"-steel models unavailable until I get a better response from Shapeways.

Trilobite shell
dadrummond @martingreen112 PM me for details, and let me know whether you're looking for a full reconstruction or just the shell. The blue comes from polishing and patination of the polished silver print by hand.
dadrummond @steven_j_cuthbertson @taerog thanks for asking. I'm willing to make additional full reconstructions; PM me for details. Still working on how to make this all available.

Scarab pendant
dadrummond @Nada718 this makes me smile. Sorry to hear about the loss. Hopefully it was lost in a way that results in it being buried in old Rome for thousands of years and then unearthed by an archaeological team. In the meantime, enjoy the replacement, and thank you for taking the time to comment -- I really appreciate it!
