I have seen the Shapeway operators successfully printed out working hinges in pictures.

The thing is, we the users, do not have such luxury, if our hinge fail, it's a complete reprint or remodel.

Too much time and money will be wasted.

I personally feel this is a GREAT Idea if Shapeway allows us, the users to incooperate the working hinges that they have tested [tried and true] to be available for download so that we could just "boolean" the working hinges into our design knowing that that part will work.

Please, I really think this is a great idea Smile

Where do you see a shapeways hinge? Do you want a hinge that needs assembly or a printed working hinge? Also check here for downloadable 3D printable proven parts http://www.shapeways.com/themes/3dparts

I'll see if I can't get those models for you. It might be a bit as the crew is in SF at Maker Faire.

Hey Bracer,

I'm afraid I don't have access to the original files of those particular parts as they were provided by some of our suppliers. I hear you though and I'll discuss how we can grow our parts library to include some more advanced stuff as well.

Hi Bracer,

What kind of hinges are you looking for?
How big?
What material should they be designed for?

Just 3 questions off the top of my head that might enable designers to cater to your needs.

Paul

p.s. I don't mind giving a few hinge designs a go, just depends on the answers to the above.
