Thanks to some great guidance from GlenG, I was able to receive my successful print of the commemorative flower ornament for my cousin. It turned out great! (although I need to clean out some of the remaining polishing or support material, which is the yellowish stuff caught in a few crevices)

I was afraid the text would not come out (too thin) but it worked fantastically!

You may note my somewhat lazy photo editing - I have yet to construct my inexpensive light tent ( http://www.digital-photography-school.com/how-to-make-a-inex pensive-light-tent), so I just blurred the shadows a little bit when I combined the photos and ran with it.

The second item, a clip for holding the pages of music books, also turned out very nicely, I think. It's always interesting to see the variation of color between different pieces - I guess the bronze infusion is the cause?

Hey Turtles, I gave your piano clip a shout out in Friday Finds. You should totally make it "for sale" though. Wink

Ana,

Thanks! I'm glad you like it - I'm surprised you thought the clip was better than the ornament - that one's my personal favorite.

In any case, thanks for reminding me. The clip is up here: http://www.shapeways.com/model/439183/music_clip___diamonds. html

I have to do some work to get the ornament co-creator-ready. Then that one will go up also.

I love the ornament too, but the reason I chose the clip was that I was just a little nervous about whether the ornament would print reliably in the future. Some of those tendrils seemed a little thin.

Don't mean to give you cause for worry, but I decided it was better to play it safe. Wink

Ana,

Fair enough - that's your prerogative. I may push the boundaries to find the limits, but you must promote a safe path. The vines are rather thin - 1.1 x 2.2 mm. The size seems to have worked well so far, though - I had something similar on the heart ornament as well, although that one was not as complex as this one.

Thank you all for the compliments. I have to get moving, because the wedding is in 10 days. I have been distracted a bit recently (ahem, Skyrim), but I still plan to apply a bit of paint to the vines and flower to make them stand out better. I'll post pictures when it's done.
