I would like to make a model of my house for a snowglobe. I tried sketchuo for a few hours but dont have the time at the moment and i would like to be able to print this by valentines day. I got the idea from this site,
http://www.qarl.com/qLab/?p=77
it doesnt need to be to detailed because it will only be a few inches in size. I have multiple pictures from the perimeter of my house. I will include one so you can get an idea. Please let me know how much and and by when I could have it?
I just need this for a one time print. You can keep the design or sell it, whatever.
Thanks for considering

If you can give me all the dimensions I can do that for $10(model) $25 if you need in colour. Fairly busy during weekdays. 1 to 3 days for model depending on how much time I get. By Sunday morning for colour.

I would like color. The opening i need to get it into has a 4 inch diameter so you can make the model 3.5 inches on its longest side and the rest can just be proportionate to the pictures. Do you have an email I can send the rest of the pictures i have?

I need a bit of expertise looking over some files. Some I have been able to clear with the repair features of Netfabb, others still read as all red but only 1 shell. I could use experienced eyes looking over them. thanks

Thanks for the reply. I know that the issue is multiple shells and zero volume listed. I am just not sure how to reduce the shell number more than I have and change the volume. I've attached one of the files as I am sure it's the same with the others.

Would you be able to make a ring based off of this design?

What would the pricing be?

I think you could even use it in your shop as an example--just switching the names on the sides of the heart.

Thanks.

I can import STL files and JPG for sure. My cad software says it can import the below also.

index.php?t=getfile&id=18921&private=0


IGES or STP are the best formats though. These are also the formats mold makers want which I can provide from any of my drawings at a cost.

Hello!

Im looking to make a an over sized double action out the front blade, but modified to retract and extend via a string which is pulled by a ring (much like the one in the video game series "Assassins Creed". Ive tried making one by hand, but the dimensions are near impossible to get right. There is a youtube tutorial on the "modified" DAOTF mechanism I wish to recreate.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FOR COSTUME PURPOSES ONLY.

here is the link to the youtube tutorial:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd-n7_X4KKQ

and i wish the casing of the mechanism to look like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDRR-b979QA&list=UUMxTBaY HMnjb2Li4cqUdSBg&index=9&feature=plcp

and if possible, i wish the blade to be a 2 stage extension, like so:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ammnra/6085068690/in/photostrea m

not sure how I would like dimensions...just 8.5 inches long is what is set in stone. I wish the demensions of the mechanism itself to mimic the second video.

Many Thanks,
-Richard

What measurements? Of the model itself or the real car? I can not give any measure of the model, which is to me. For him it is about 1:24.
I'll send pictures soon.

Hi there,

I'm interested in a 3D modeler for a simple hollow hexagon design ( 250, 250, 200mm i think.) and another simple piece to sit inside the hexagon. I'd be using the Shapeways 3D printing system so would need an STL file.

I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know if you think you guys could help and what your base rate is.

Thanks so much!

for a simple shape. I charge a minimum of $10 for my time. However a hollow hexagon with 250mm radius(circle drawn touching each line of hexagon) and 200mm tall 0.8mm thick would contain 180cc of material. This will be over $200 in every material to print.

Hi,

I would like to get a 3D print off a Google Earth topographic map of Permanente Creek in our town. If we send you the link for the Google Earth topographic map of the creek, can you prepare it for printing?

I've never done this before so excuse me if my question is not worded correctly or doesn't make sense.

Thank you.

Best,

Jay

Hi Mctrivia,

I would like to get a ring printed with a celtic knot design. I have a specific design in mind, but I'm not sure if you do rings ?
I'd be happy for you to sell it in your shop if you like.

Please could you pm me if you're interested in this work?

D

Hi! I was wondering if you could help me out. My mother has a spoon that she has had for years and I accidentally broke it. While I can't repair it, I was wondering if you had the ability to take the two pieces and make an exact replica of it that is functional? I don't have any designs, but I do have the spoon itself to send to you. Is this possible? I would gladly pay if you think you can do it. Please e-mail me back at spice.andrew@gmail.com if you are interested. Thank you.

HI,

It will be plastic and disposable.
I need to protect my idea, possibly with a non compete agreement.

I wonder if that is something you can help me with.
