They arrived! And quite fast!
The MegaWireSphere is the only surviving member of a family of balls I designed times ago. This is the only one that sold, and strangely, I hadn't order it myself... until today.
So here it is, in Winter Red Strong and Flexible:
index.php?t=getfile&id=7298&private=0

It bounces quite well, and should be an entertaining toy for a cat... I will make a video soon. The cat is not included. Very Happy

I also received my Stitch Bracelet (Medium) in Winter Red Strong and Flexible.
index.php?t=getfile&id=7299&private=0

I also designed some earrings with a dodecahedron shape. One design is for plastic, with a ball inside. Here you can see it in Alumide:
index.php?t=getfile&id=7300&private=0

The other one is in Metal and so does not have the internal ball. Here in Stainless Steel:
index.php?t=getfile&id=7301&private=0

Unfortunately, the Dod Pendant (similar design but bigger) that I ordered in Metal could not be printed (cause only 2 mm instead of the mininum 3 mm).
The earrings are also 2 mm but I guess that, as they are smaller, they are also sturdier.

@Magic These are such creative models. Smile

Your bracelet gets me thinking a bit about the jewelry possibilities with SF. To be honest, I'd kind of written it off in my mind because I really prefer delicate jewelry and I though that SF wasn't fit for that. You've proven that SF can create fun and intricate pieces though!

Thanks for the kind words, Ana.
The flexibility of this bracelet is quite interesting. I will have to make a larger version because if your hand is too large, it will not be flexible enough to enlarge itself to let your hand go through it. But instead, you can turn the inside face out! and the resulting shape is quite strange Smile. It is difficult to explain, but i will make a video to show that...

@lensman, did you not hear the news?

It's coming! We found a supplier, and we're setting prices and dates right now. I talked about it during Shapeways Live last week. Smile

Did shapeways provide the earring hangers, or did you have to buy and fit them yourself?

Shapeways provides the hooks for the earring for these model for free.
I asked them to do so and they will now be added to these models for anyone who order them.

If you are a designer and you want hooks to be added to your own design of earrings, just send an e-mail asking so to service(at)shapeways(dot)com with "Combinatory earrings" as title (do not forget to mention the number of the model and to add a link to it).
The internal diameter of the ring that will receive the hook must be 1.3 mm.

For necklace same thing. Just change the title to "Combinatory necklace", and the ring must be 3 mm if I remember well.

Hey Glenn, that's weird about the screencast. Are you still having trouble with it?
