Thanks duann! I have made a new order from shapeways, I will post them soon after I received. Last week I have received two eyeglasses are printed in nylon and metallic plastic but these two have different design , so I don't post them in my shop.

Another question I want to ask why not provide black polished nylon, I think this color many people would like. Unpolished nylon is little bit rough for wearing.

Thanks

Check this thread.. https://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=551 90&&srch=black+polished#msg_num_31
The Black process is a different dye that works poorly with a polished surface. They are still having quality issues when they try to do Black Polished.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Cold Fusion is a six-piece burr, but not a classic one. The pieces are helical and the puzzle is taken apart and put together by pushing the pieces in a helical motion. This version is made of metal.

Watch the YouTube video of the metal version.
Watch the YouTube video of the nylon version.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Buy a fully colored and assembled sample (limited edition) from PuzzleMaster.

Enjoy!

That looks awesome, how much did it cost?


Not sure what "it" is. I posted links to things I found searching on the web, not anything I bought and paid for!

I am guesssing that it is the Aussie bones that caught his attention. Glancing over that bronzingstudio site, while their work is impressive there are a few things to note: delivery times of 3 to 5 weeks (from their faq page, with option for 2-3 weeks express service at increased cost mentioned on the ordering page), the silvery material is in fact nickel (also from the faq) and prices are in three digits even for the small, birth-related items for which they offer fixed prices.

Been discussed a few times, they did not get their black dye to bind to the polished plastic the way it does to the unpolished. Various designers have experimented with different dyes and procedures, but so far no convincing and reproducible process appears to have come of it. (Check the post production forum, there was a longish thread started by - I think - thomashuang - about a year ago.) Black dyes (as opposed to pigments which can simply contain soot) are typically a mixture of dark blues and reds, so uneven fixation of dye can create all kinds of strange and varying hues.

I did everything specified and it is still giving me the same results. I doubled check the faces and all of them are facing outward and there are no overlapping faces. All dotted lines have been accounted for as well. Went into Netfabb and triple checked using the tests. Still the same.

Is it possibly due to the way I "painted" each of the faces? Maybe the reason why the dark gray is so prevalent is because I applied a full coat of it before the other colors?

Do you have paint applied to the outside of the group? If so, that could be a problem. I'm happy to take a look if you PM me the model.

This is very interesting. I too am interested in a higher resolution than FUD, but also would like to see that higher resolution have the 'new' larger bounding box of the FUD.
I understand price would be an issue, but if quality was 'that much improved', I can't see it being too much of an issue.

Perhaps running the current FUD machines at their highest resolution may test the waters so to speak.

I have been uploading models for several months and the Wall Thickness Tool was working as it should however it now shows nothing for any model with thin walls.

I haven't updated anything on my computer although Windows 7 does do auto updates.

I get a message to click here for WebGL help but this just takes me to a very general page on getting started with WebGL.

This error message is actually of no use in fixing the issue.

Does anyone have any thoughts or a solution to the problem.

I am assuming that something on my PC is now 'broken' but I don't know what to do to fix it.

Regards,
Ray

Check your browser settings for anything related to WebGL. Possibly the video driver got updated to a new version that your browser does not recognize as providing reliable OpenGL/WebGL support. (Which browser are you using, by the way ?)

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I am using IE 11 which would be fully updated by Windows 7 presumably.

I just tried Chrome and it worked fine.

You may be right about the video card but I also tried it on another PC with Windows 7 and IE 11 and got another no result, that is no graphic and the "click for help with WebGL" error message. I am reasonably sure that both video cards are AMD Radeons although not the same model. They may both have been updated with the same video driver though. I will update the video driver(s) on both PCs and see what happens.

Looks like I will use Chrome until I can work out what is wrong unless someone else has any ideas.

Regards and thanks,
Ray

To advertise what - their whole store or select pieces? How would they decide on what pieces? Not fair to others...

Hi Kevin

Sounds a very nice story :)
Luk (the other half of somersault18:24) was always really interested in 3D printing. We did not know what to do but we knew we needed to jump on it as it sounded very promising. He also at the same time formed himself in Blender to draw in 3D. I do not have personally any experience with Sketchup, but i will have a look. Like 3 years ago we started designing some funny jewellery made mostly for children but we it was not really our thing and slowly fade out. Some time later when somersault18:24 was a reality and we knew we wanted to do science communication in our future we saw the power to use science 3d printed objects for people to express their love for science. To spread science awareness. This is how we started :)

We never organised a meeting before so this would be the first :) I think it could be interesting for people to meet, show each other their designs and talk. I think the rest will just happen :) i am sure tips and tricks, advice and collaborations can arise of such an event. And if not, at least we know we are not alone 3d printing in Belgium :) How this sound to you?

I am curious to see your pictures from your jewellery

Cheers

Idoya

Sorry to take so long to reply! One of the people was definitely had Shapeways experience. In fact, when we all discussing the importance of designing for a material M_Sill was way more knowledgeable than I was on the material properties. I needed a printout, he just had them in his head!
