After almost $500 spent on Shapeways we have finally a prototype ready for moulding and production.

The final product will look and act like this

It actually is amazing how much inteligence or the lack of it can go into positioning a model on a 3D printer xyz table - every freaking material has it's own properties and reusability properties as I assume. I truly respect the operatos behind those machines as I can clearly see the effort that has gone into filling our orders.

Beware: Black Detail is brittle when compared to WSF - so we had to make working models out of WSF and the ones for molding and detail out of BD.

Thank you,
T
