HI,

I just wanted to say that DotSan provided me with an excellent service - I tried hollowing the piece out myself (using zbrush) but ended up wih a lumpy un-uniformed thickness.

DotSan created the minimal wall thickness (to minimise material costs), remodeled the base (which was a vey unpleasant angled block) and re-created the plaque - which is so much cleaner now.

Thanks DotSan!!

Umberto had a model he created in Sketch Up, unfortunately it could not be printed because it had naked edges, non-manifold issues and disjointed parts. We were able to fix his Sketch Up file very quickly.

I've been working with Travis from Mississippi. A fleet of battleships for a game he is putting together, there is still one more to do to complete the set. The models were created from his drawings.

Hey, VirtualV, great stuff!

I'm wondering, how much do you charge - what's a typical hourly rate for your work, and how many hours does an average, fairly simple model take you to repair?

I'm asking because there are some meshes I've made that I'm having difficulty getting clean enough for the uploader to accept them.

If your pricing is reasonable I might hand them off to you.

Here is a print of Hoodie, he's amazing and the print quality is brilliant. The process allows for easy variations of the colours and pattern, see it here http://www.shapeways.com/model/80951/hoodie.html

Hello.
I have worked very hard on a model ariplane 3 in long but it has a manifold error. Sad I was wondering if you might be able to fix the issue because I am farely new at this. I used Google Sketchup to do this and If you could fix it I would be very, very, very gratefull. Thanks!
P.S. It would also be nice if you could make it hollow so it is cheaper.

I've just finished a project for David Mihail from www.scifiskunkwerks.blogspot.com

He wanted these models cleaned up of many problems including creating a single shell.

Just wanted to give a big "Thank you" to Vijay. He does excellent work, quickly and at an affordable price. Best, he was able to put up with me. The top model was a digital kit-bash, and a thoroughly messy one. The bottom two were quick & dirty models. In each case, Vijay was able to make them watertight, manifold, align the normals and then shell the model. Great work, Vijay.

Great! Nice to meet you. Take a look at these two articles on my blog.

Does shapeways have the capacity to print a shoe that is wearable? Take a look at this article on my blog (url below).

What material would you suggest for this? Let me know please and how long (how many hours) it would take you to create a design for a shoe.

http://www.tallshortgirl.com/2010/03/3d-printed-footwear-is- the-future/

If I sent you a pair to duplicate, could you create those 3d files for me? Right and Left foot? How long would that take you!?

Let me know! If the price is right, I hope we can work together!

Heya everyone, Vijay was very helpful (and fast) hollowing out a model for me. The cost of the final model printing was reduced from $200 down to about $50 Smile

I found Vijay to be very helpful on a recent project.

I was also surprised to see the price differential between the "pre-shelled" and "post-shelled' model as test uploads to the Shapeways site.

Shelling is certainly cost efficient and Vijay was a pleasure to work with.

Vijay is great ! He is knowlegable, flexible, fast and very friendly (and patient...! I almost forgot...) We selected him to work out our character Chiggy (see image), based on the little pig he designed for Maartje. He delivered the same high quality we selected him for ! Great to work with Vijay and we will for sure come back to him for our next character !

Learn all about chiggy at http://www.chiggy.eu or see her in our shop http://www.shapeways.com/shops/hilaris

Thanks Vijay !!!

Vijay helped me this week with adjusting some models to be smoother and ready to print. After making the payment i got the 3 models back in 1 day. Great and fast service for a good price. Next time that i need something adjusted to be made ready for printing i'm sure i will contact Vijay again.
