Hi,

Currently only standard shipping is available to Japan. It costs 19.95 and takes about 1 week to 10 days.
It is a bit expensive considering the delay.

I would gladly prefer to either pay 10 to 15 for this standard delivery, and have an Express Shipping option for time critical projects.

I quickly checked post.nl and UPS Netherlands prices, and I think shipments to Japan would be both much cheaper
(and actually faster) if the products were made in the US rather than in the Netherlands.

Thank you.

I am a mechanical engineer with over 15 years experience in new product design and development. I have worked on everything from high end consumer products and sporting goods to military hardware and everything in between. I also work with chemical, electrical and optical engineers for those projects that require them. Feel free to call or email for free advice or to ask general questions.

I work from home with zero overhead so my rates are highly competitive and my work is on par with any major design firm, at a fraction of the time and cost. I use various networking programs that give my clients access to my system, so they can view my screen as I work, allowing them to take an active part in the design process. I also provide 3D files at critical intervals which can be viewed on your system without having to purchase design software. I will provide a link to all required programs upon request.

I can provide cost effective conceptual designs with 3D prints or complex assemblies ready for manufacture. However big or small your project is, my group of independent contract engineers can get the job done at very affordable rates. My primary goal is to determine what the clients short and long term goals and needs are and help guide them through the process of product development in order to help them avoid pitfalls and money traps. Getting from A to Z with as little cost and time is the key to success, especially for small start up companies.

Deliverables always include the following;

Native Solidworks files
STEP files used in manufacturing / programming CNC
STL files used for 3D print
EPRT files used to view 3D files on your end using free 3D viewing software available on line
2D drawing used in manufacturing

I can also provide provisional patent write ups and assist in licensing or manufacture.

NDA, portfolio and professional references are available.

index.php?t=getfile&id=75238&private=0hi,
i'm a exceptional highly skilled 3d modeler for over 15 years and have done TONS of modeling .
i've also done numerous jobs for shapeways members .
i can model almost anything similarly based on references provided.
you may view my works at my website :

Need someone with moving parts experience. A rotational part--and a lock and key type mechanism. WOuld be nice if you printed as well, but not necessary

Here is another example but with a "low density" cylinder. It is similar to the last example except 6 long gaps are cut from the wall to lower the density below 10%. As with the previous example the "cylinder" is scaled only in the x and y dimensions. Low density models now are often much more expensive than before which is why I did this analysis. Note that the major price drop is only due to the ability to fit the 40 mm ball into the central cylinder void beyond some scaled size. That does not apply to all situations so you may never be able to reduce cost by enlarging your model. Anyway, the model for this analysis looks like this:

index.php?t=getfile&id=75251&private=0

And the same curve sets as before...

index.php?t=getfile&id=75252&private=0

index.php?t=getfile&id=75253&private=0

index.php?t=getfile&id=75254&private=0

If I can't get the horse to at LEAST $200 range...so they have a 3D printer on site.

If you're talking $200 range, and you are contemplating a few of those, you are in price range of the lower cost 3D printers.
Although the horse size at ~79x241x300mm is pushing the price up. If there is a scale category next size down, there would be a large number of suitable printers in the $500 range.

In terms of large printers, this list has 5 printers big enough, from ~$900 (kit) to ~$1900 (assembled). Like this one.

For the kits, you would probably need to be handy/geeky or have a geek friend. And it is a still a little hobby-ish, not like pressing a button on a photocopier.

He may not be of the same quality, but from the looks of it, their models are fairly smooth compared to the grainy texture of SW's plastic, so this would work out much better for me.


If they print in ABS it is possible to get a smooth surface with acetone vapour, but again a handy/hobby thing.

@javelin98 Sorry, for the confusion: I was not specifically speaking about scale models, but more generally about any hollow model. I just took the horse as an example, which was perhaps not a good idea.


So many things to design, so little time...

Thanks for that.. i have tried creating a simple cube 2cm by 2cm by 2 cm. Whether I select none or select metric in blender, shapeways seems to disregard the measurements and assign it to inches, even though i select upload in mm.

I work in Blender, but I always send my file through NetFabb first before uploading to Shapeways. It's a good way to fix any problems, and when the dimensions are correct in NetFabb, they are always recognized correctly by the Shapeways uploader.
