I'm very satisfied with result.

A little cup can be used for clear rice wine or spirits.
the color Gloss Celadon Green Porcelain will match well with korean berverage.

A Slime from dragonquest can be used as weight for papers or napkins
I thought detail of eye could disappear with glaze but it looks like drawing and I like it.

I thought orcarina would be canceled.
It needs some updated to work as musical instrument but I see what porcelain is capable of.

I've been wanting to make more flexible metal pieces for a while now, and aluminium is the first chance for that. (Okay, apart from just 6 pieces in the interlocking metal pilot)

So I designed a simple bracelet chain to fit the aluminium specs. I also printed it in coloured polished plastic, to see how it compares.


I think it turned out quite well for a first attempt - all the links move freely. I gave it a separation of 0.62 mm, so it seems like that is enough.
Something which I've not seen anyone else mention is that it seems slightly larger than the design. The chain links are a fraction thicker than the plastic version. The wire was designed with a 1.7mm diameter, but I think for the most part it's more like 1.9mm. It does vary quite a bit more than the plastic - presumably because of the support removal.
It doesn't have much flex at all.
The connector I'd designed didn't have quite enough space to insert, and when I tried to bend it with pliers the end snapped off. Fortunately it left enough of a hook to still function.

I also tested detail with a print of my dragon coin. I don't have a picture of it, but it's pretty good. As I've seen someone else mention, though, it is very matt, and this does make it look rather 'flat'.
I can see from where the support was removed that it was printed on edge. Looking carefully I can see some distortion, with circles sagging at the bottom side,and a few small blebs of additional metal on the lower surface.

Where is the setting for the main product pic to match the material pics when the materials icon select? For example, if the customer click on the brass icon on the material selection, the main pic will show the product in brass. So far, mine never change.

I have invented a radical series of breakthrough and visionary technologies that makes it possible for the first time in history to cast porcelain and other ceramics directly in rubber molds. This major breakthrough allows tremendous detail equivalent to jewelry casting, deep undercuts, through-holes, Jasperware, reticulation (filigree) as well as heat fusing colored glass directly to the porcelain - all of which have been considered "IMPOSSIBLE!"

I seek visionary investors to set up a glass and porcelain manufactory to produce stunning objects of every sort. Keep in mind that no other ceramic manufactory in the world is capable of competing since they all use plaster molds and as you can see 3D printed porcelain is very simplistic and limited and required heavy glazing to cover up defects. I am currently in a prototype setup so I am not able to do production casting which is why I seek visionary investors.
