WOW! This is amazing news! They have a patinated finish and say they can do the work and get it delivered in ten days! I'm going to make a big order of a number of things and see how their quality is and if it's true that they can deliver on time. If the quality is good and their lead time is as specified, then I will cancel my plans of doing my own castings and just use them, for now.

I have been hoping for for a long time for these two features! This would give me the ability to advertise and then drop ship to my customers. I could also do customizations, like engraving, since every order would be 3D printed. I could also offer every size when it comes to rings since I wouldn't need to spend thousands of dollars maintaining a huge inventory.

Best of all, this will eventually force Shapeways to follow suite and offer the same services with the same lead times in order to remain competitive. This could be the edge of a threshold where we see the full implementation of what the founders first envisioned for Shapeways.

It also means that everyone interested in jewelry design can finally start to consider making a living from their designs. SO COOL!!!

They write on a press related post that they will give Jewelry Designers the option to sell directly from their site.

I.Materialise filled to IPO so we will expect higher competition. That is the main competitor to Shapeways , yet I like Shapeways more ... reading the I.Materialise forums I got a "chilling" effect.

Before anyone in the UK jumps into the dropshipping silver idea... check up on hallmarking laws - currently in the UK it is a criminal offence to advertise silver items for sale without a recognised hallmark, this includes dropshipped items if the advertising person or company is UK based - I don't know how the rest of the EU works, check your local laws.

This is the main reason why I don't advertise my Shapeways silver products.

Oh, that would be cool too! :D

As for i.materialise, yeah, they should spend a chunk of money on investing in the development their community. Strange thing is, they have the world's best STL repair software called Magics, but they never seem to take advantage of that fact with their i.materialise branch.

Yeah I like Shapeways better too. I've been following the development of Shapeways since the very beginning.

Good point. I know that there are other countries that require it as well. I forgot which ones they are though.

Same as... only just seen this comp.

This is the sort of thing that could be included in a (properly formatted) weekly newsletter.

Check this one out. This is hand laid carbon fiber. Got to believe continuous fiber is stronger than carbon filled plastic.

As GlenG says, the strength of Carbon Fibre is in the fibre - otherwise it's about how strong is the 'glue'.

By choosing the fibre material and the direction of the fibres one can put strength where it is required, and not (and hence less weight) where it is not required.

So called 3d sails have been produced for over a decade now, with fibre laid by machine and sandwiched between film laminates.

I've only ever ordered one piece in Polished Grey Steel. When it arrived it was practically black. Since my client wanted more of a polished steel look I had no choice but to take my Dremel to it. I was able to polish the necessary areas to a nice silver colour with good contrast against the black. However, this raised the question in my mind - what did I receive? The Polished Grey or Matte Black? I contacted Support about this regarding a re-print that wasn't needed in the end but I never did hear back as to what it was my model was actually printed in. So, can anyone from Shapeways please tell me if the Polished Grey Steel actually has a plating on it, or is it merely the Stainless Steel with a slight polish which is what I assumed it was? If not, then I guess I received the Matte Black which presumably does have a plating?

As far as I know, the gold, gray, black, and nickel are all plated finishes. I'm not entirely sure about the bronze though.

Back when the new steel materials were introduced , it was stated that
both black and grey are created by bluing - with the grey one polished afterwards to leave a thinner and smoother coat of black iron oxide (magnetite).

I am a newbie 3D modeler and I am accepting works involving creation of 3D models and documentations/ assembly drawings.

I've done a couple of 3D prototyping jobs here, the concepts is similar it's just that the output varies with each product.

Depending on the completeness and the complexity of your design, my standard turn around time for a single-part product is only about 2-3 hours. But for products having several moving parts, I will have to see the actual design first before I can give a more accurate estimate of how long it will take me.

Please see attached sample of my other CAD works and please feel free to contact me if you'd be interested.

Thanks,
Ace Caoile

I am interested in designing a tie clip, like the ones on shapeways, but with two letters in a circle. One would be backwards and the other as it usually is written and they would be back to back. I don't know whether id rather have them centered or at the end yet. How much do you charge?

Hi,

I saw your post and need a 3D modeler but don't have much money to spend.

I just started a company called Baux Wine (www.bauxwine.com) I'm launching launching a high end wine in a box for $30 at retail. Box wines require a gravity feed so the spout is at the bottom and we'd like to offer our customers a selection of stands for the box which would enable one to place a glass of wine under the tap and pour.

We're in the finals to be selected to appear on Shark Tank in June or September and are looking for some neat things to share with "The Sharks" so we'd love to be able to show your design for the box wine stand.

Thanks so much for any input you can offer and I've put some detail below in case you need for your response.

Thank you,

-Peter





Design Guidelines for Baux Wine base:

I want you to use your creativity, so I won't dictate how to design it but below are some guidelines – you can see an image of the box at www.bauxwine.com

The base is 4 ¾ (side to side) x 5 (front to back)

A typical wine glass is 7-8" tall and the "bed" for the wine box should probably be ½ to ¾ inch deep so that it doesn't block the spout

-The spout is rounded so the design could have a semicircle or a hole for the spout

You can see patent drawings at: http://www.google.com/patents/USD680438

The patent doesn't limit size, so dimensions are not on the drawings but you can get an idea for the shape.

Thanks,



-Peter
