Hi everybody,

my first printed parts arrived, and I'm quite happy with the print quality

I would however have expected this part to printed in a different orientation (maze figure up)

This part has been painted with a silver marker. this works well!

The maze figure is from the cathedral in Chartre.

Some details: I made the part cheaper (half the price!) by making it hollow. There are no holes though, so there is loose powder inside the shape.

cheers,
Gijs

Beautiful! I love mazes! I'm waiting for a maze-related print to be delivered as we speak!

The Chartres is a classic example, and it looks wonderful as a pendant. nice work on that model. Did you use a displacement map for that?

I think I might just have to try paint markers Smile Thanks for the tip. If you're interested in sharing it further, you might want to put a topic in the "post-production techniques" part of the forum.

Nice model! I assume this is WS&F? The rougness of the material, combined with the silber marker, looks like stone, good idea.

I wonder what Shapeways thinks about enclosing material inside a volume. Or doesn't it matter, because it is (maybe) cheaper support material?

Thanks, and glad you like it Smile

as for enclosing material: I assume that is not an issue. I understood that the powder can only be recylced for 50%, meaning that each shot should at least contain 50% fresh powder.

I modeled the maze, it is not a displacement map (modeled in Rhino)

and yes, the material is WS&F

Cheers,
Gijs
