Compact travel holder for two AA batteries (up and bottom parts). I kept the material use as small as possible to obtain the smallest cost . Though, I can offer it in steel versions upon request.




If you are interested in this model It's a good idea to order it when Shapeways offers free shipping (like this weekend :-))

I made this ring so to be offered in all materials (i was interested to pass easily the automated checks specially in steel versions which it did) and to be as cheap as it can get.





Hope you like it. You can see it here: shop-results&optionId=57973099

Where do you start with the material selection process?

Make a design and order and printed the affordable "WSF" to look for errors and to make changes in design to start with

then if it pass's go back and order the print in stainless steel. as final?

Would it even print the "ss " or "brass" etc. ?

Hello, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering, with more than 10 years of experience as a mechanical designer and stress engineer. I normally use the software Catia V5 for design and I also know how to calculate the mechanical behavior of the structure using FEM (Finite Element Method) software, like Patran-Nastran. I am from Spain, in Europe, so my mother tongue is Spanish, but I can also speak in English.

In general I get great results using the wall thickening tool to get nice uniform wall thicknesses in some designs. It can be a big shortcut over flopping a design between two or three design packages to get a similar result. However I was playing with this design that has skinny arcs or rods that don't seem to get the proper treatment from the tool. Is this a known problem and are there any tips or tricks for better use of the tool?


This example is using the porcelain thickness to get to 3mm thicknesses but it also does similar things when using sandstone to get 2mm thicknesses.
