Hi everyone, I'm Steve, AKA "Coolhand" I've been here very nearly since the start and have completed many printable models for shapeways users.

I've worked for many years running my own freelance modelling and design business and on top of the print on demand I can also design prototypes for mass production processes such as resin casting. Previously I worked as a CAD guy - Largely using Autocad.

Today I use a multitude of tools to create 3D models for print and other applications, high quality renderings and animations. Past clients include Axis Animation, Timegate Studios, Khurasan Miniatures, Microworld games and many others.

I offer an outstanding level of original, fresh designs for your project, or hyper-accurate replicas of anything you can think of, at a low rate because I'm very quick.

This outstandingly accurate Steinway Model D was built to be printed and is presently being finalised for use as a 1/4 scale museum peice.

One of my largest projects, The Cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, built for production as a resin kit, is also the most accurate 3d model of this particular spaceship which featured in the movie 2010.

Here it is broken into peices for resin casting.

I'm very proud of the range of tiny 6mm figure scale (about 1/300) I designed and built from scratch for Steve Salotti at Microworld Games.

Here is one of the designs, a super-heavy tank. This is a production copy painted by the talented, Aaron Dickey.

I also produce models for mainstream video games, live action productions, independents, you name it! but don't let that put you off. Please check out the items in my store, particularly if you're looking for rare custom minis.

I am presently available to help realise your 3d printing and production goals, feel free to contact me for a quote via PM.

Thanks for your time.

-Steve.

After obtaining some of the excellent A-Wings from Steve's shop I contacted him in the hope he might be able to create a 1/700 Yak-28 Firebar aircraft. Less than an hour later, much to my surprise, a working design was presented to me.

The Firebar's are on order, however, if the A-Wings are anything to go by I'll love the finished product and might put some more ideas his way. Very Happy

Hi there,
are you able to do 3D models of bolts and nuts (threading) assembly?

I'm a Singapore based craftsman needing some specialised plastic parts.

Yours truly,
Bernard

Just got my bolt and nuts (threading works) proto-types sculptured by Steve.
Very efficient and meticulous, even provides well-thoughts of input on improving my designs.
Best of all, he offers his service at a fair price rates.

Definitely will come back to him for more 3D imaging assignments!

Thank you Steve!
Warmest regards from Singapore.

It is safe to say that I have found my permanent 3d modeler/designer. I am very satisfied with Steve's work and his prices are very good without sacrificing quality. Thanks Steve!!

Extremely efficient and professional, with very fair price quotes!
Engaged Steve for his modelling services and it was a breeze, extremely well-informed/honed 3D modeler.
Communication was easy and Steve offers sound solutions to many of my 3D problems.
Definitely will return to Steve to get more 3D assignments done. =D

Hi Steve!
I may have some projects I'd like to work on with you (Especially since you have such great feedback!) but I want to make sure that if I do work with you we can negotiate a contract/agreement in such a way that the designs and models become my property. I want to start a small business, so I'd like the designs to be under my own name, and I would be paying you to turn my detailed sketches into 3D renderings. Is that something we can work out?

Also, would I get a price quote from you after I send you sketches?

Hope to hear from you soon.
Betsy

I contacted Steve because he had such great feedback but I was a little worried because my concept was so basic. Steve respond quickly and was very professional as he worked on the model concept. I was surprised at how fast Steve worked up a draft for review and very pleased with the outcome.

I would recommend Steve for any job big or small without hesitation. It is so refreshing to work with someone who takes pride in their work and delivers exactly what they advertise. The customer care and follow up that Steve provided was fantastic. Over all great experience and a very fair price!

Sincerely,
Cara Giannoni
