Laughing Don't ask me why. It's a sudden idea I had.

Rolling Eyes I wondered if the white strong and flexible material powder existed in a "glow in the dark" version.

See what I mean? Smile

I've been considering making light fixtures using shapeways, which i then would put LEDs or other bulbs in after receiving them. This idea would be cooler though, and a more practical use of Shapeways that anyone could make without having to add electronics into it later.
I think people have asked before as well about printed models using more than 1 material. How cool would it be to print a sculpture in black with glow in the dark features (eyes, etc). I really hope all that can be possible in the future.

Perhaps Shapeways could do a small scale test using their powder mixed with phosphorous additive.

If they would like to do that, I can direct them to a supplier of those materials. I used these additives in another application, and they worked fine there. They are available in a greenish variant, and a blueish variant.

Luminophore is used in combination with a lacquer. The lacquer that you use should be appropriate for the type of material you wish to paint: for metal, wood, plastic and the like. index.php?t=getfile&id=1920&private=0
