Howdy,


I had an engineer place the physical dimensions of an object I'd like to reproduce into Solidworks CAD drawings. I don't have the knowledge, tools, or time to go any further on my own.

I would imagine I'll need someone who is familiar with Solidworks and has the ability to QC the current drawings, adjust them for any deficiencies, and ultimately submit them to Shapeways for production/prototyping.

I can provide additional .pdf images and photos as well as the Solidworks files in order to assist you in generating an estimate.

Thanks for your consideration,

Mark

It looks a complete printable shape. Why don't you just ask Service to convert it for you.

"If you get stuck, mail your design to service@shapeways.com and we'll try to fix or convert it for you."

Rob,


Thanks for the timely reply. I did not know Shapeways offered that type of assistance and I was assuming at some point I would need a copy of Solidworks and some proficiency with it - of which, I have neither.

In light of my inexperience, I may need more handholding than they are willing to accommodate.

Thanks,

Mark

Thank you for all of the responses guys. A forum member has now assisted me with this endeavor and I am now awaiting my first Shapeways design.

Thanks again,

Be sure to post a pic of it here.Smile Nice to see a good finished product, least for ideas,


Have any questions regarding Blender, and need fast answers, you are always welcome at the IRC Server Freenode, channel #blender. As a bonus, several there have experience in modelling for 3D prints.
