I've been working on this project for quite some time already (since Januari actually), but I hadn't posted here yet..

I got a box with a bunch of new prints today, and I'm incredibly happy! Also... I got a message that I might already get the next shipment tomorrow!

You can read more about the project at http://www.entoforms.com
And if you want one for yourself you can check at http://www.indiegogo.com/entoforms

Here's a few photos I took just now.

Great models! I really like the idea of their creation by a 'DNA' code injection. They could even be made into 'real fossils' by using their form as the hollow space inside a block of Frosted Ultra Detail.

Nice colors and creativity, the one on the right is scaring me though, not sure if that is its front or its back! Laughing

Thanks Ana, and thanks RogersX,

It's really going well with the project... I even got a mention on BoingBoing.net which is awesome!

Really love these! Smile

I have done some trials with evolutionary/genetic algorithm like, but nowhere near as fancy as this!

Good job!

This is a fun one.. the first truly one of a kind Entoform arrived a few days ago... and... went straight back out in the mail to my customer. I've actually been able to re-use Shapeways' boxes for this as well... very useful!

O no!!!

I just got mail from the last customer... the one who got the box above.... the model had broken! 3 legs were loose!

These full colour prints really are way fragile... even when I don't go too near the minimum wall thickness!

Aww Sad

How did you package it up? I've had a bit of experience sending out FCS models, and have usually over-packaged them out of caution.

If the model had its legs glued to the backing board then it might have experienced shrinkage due to drying out, temperature or if sent by plane it might have been the temperature and low atmospheric pressure, with no way of moving due to glued legs it would brake the legs of instead. The packaging looks great though, well done. Some of your photos made me so hungry for sour gummy worms, I wanted to eat your model. Hahaha, i'm always thinking about eating, sorry.
