Hi, I'm new to this group and I'm interested in learning how to create flat and semi flat charms in silhouette shapes from my drawings I've upload and the thickness of a penny or nickle.

When you view my model, my images are tall like a cylinder and I want them flat.

Can anyone help and see what I'm doing wrong"

I assume that the shape should be extruded less?

I want my images to be flat like a pendent. The Sheep shape Is just for a Charm, but the Solid frog I want as a pendent to wear around my neck.

Welcome Teradesign.

Cookie, I'd suggest you post in 3D design, or 3D modeler needed. You should also check out the co-creators for making pendants. http://www.shapeways.com/creator/

You what I just realized? I inputted the dimensions wrong.

The dimensions should have read 2.0 w x 0.2 d x 2.5 h, but instead I had the dimension the depth 2.5 and the height 0.2 or 0.75. Now the next part is figuring out how to edit what I already entered. doubt if that's possible from a different computer from where I first uploaded my original design. If that's the case, I will have to wait until I get home where I designed and uploaded my models.

I did used the 3d, but I got the dimensions entered incorrectly.

I finally got it figured out and the 3d poppers looks just the way I like them. Very pleased customer.

My next question, how to order laser cuts of my designs I'm lost on that part.

The sheep design, I would like to order 50 to 100 silhouette cut outs of the sheep.

The frog design I would like to order about 2 in metal. I want to wear these as shawl pens.

Cookie,

We don't mind answering your questions, just post them in the appropriate section, not in terradesigns introduction.

Thanks,
Mike
