|Hi Shapeways Forum :) [message #10569] Tue, 09 March 2010 04:15 UTC
My name is falldeaf and I'm new to the shapeways community, I recently learned to use the 3d program blender in the interest of working on a video game. That's been going well but I also found out that a 3d program can be useful for unexpected and interesting things.
I designed a coffee table in blender:
Then built it in real life, it worked pretty well
And since finding this site I've been excited about the opportunity to try and model and print an object. The first item I modeled and ordered is a sunflower pendant for my girlfriend. She likes sunflowers I'm hoping my design will work well and I'll definitely do a forum post after I receive the object.
I've also done the shop option and would like to try making some other trinkets and gadgets. Ever since I saw this documentary called 'objectified', http://www.objectifiedfilm.com/ I thought I'd like to attempt to design something that other people might think is interesting, beautiful or useful. I hope I'll be able to accomplish that.
Anyway, I'm really impressed with the talent here on this site and the community seems really friendly. I'm looking forward to being a part of it.
Thank you for reading,
