These two arrived recently, and I am thrilled with the sheer quality of both of these prints.

The figurine in FCS and the pendant in stainless steel. I ordered all my designs to test them, but in white flexible and one in alumide. Still really pleased with the results. Thank you Shapeways team for putting up with all my experimental prints, you're brilliant.

Very neat FCS print!

I was also super impressed when I received my first FCS printed model, so I can relate on that level, it really is an awesome material for this kind of stuff! Cool

I love the little unicorn figurine! I wish my modelling skills were that capable *sigh*

I still have a ways to go modelling wise; the FCS model took a while to ensure it was both design accurate and that it wouldn't break...

But thanks for the kind comments, really spurs me on.

This makes me want to retry my own chrysalis mesh in full color sandstone ;D I've put fixing the the model on hold do to life stuff but the last attempt the legs collapsed. It came out fine in plastic though and I've since painted it:

Maybe try making the tops of the legs a little thicker? I had to do the same thing when my first print snapped. I have also made it so the tail is attached to both back legs, making them stronger.

Always great to see someone else's take on the same idea though, you did a good job painting her.
