Thanks for the idea.

I checked the CustomMaker option and yes, it will be interesting.

But Gothic-type fonts can be difficult to print and may not right for this product.

Hi shapies,

I got rejecting of order in Platinum ($8000+) on one of my bracelet already printed in polished polyamide. Similar bracelet has been printed also in gold-plated steel in China (see photo below). I remove all series of such bracelets from my SW shop and develop more printable version http://shpws.me/JuSY

I would like to see it printed in cast metals soon.

Sincerely.

After almost a month of waiting, my first porcelain print arrived (one more on the way already)!! The shipping was quick, though I had to pay $30 custom duty (that is our super greedy Indian government I guess :-))

Its a vase made of stacked up coffee cups and a saucer. This is a small version for test.

index.php?t=getfile&id=110531&private=0

After the initial excitement, I noticed that the glaze is quite uneven. Not sure why, but the surface is very bumpy and that makes it look very 'cheap'. The bumpy surface is not much visible in the photos here... only patches with insufficient glaze are visible.
I strongly believe that the surface quality is what impresses people along with the design. I really hope we start seeing some improvements soon, I have big plans for porcelain :-)

I think you're right, small letter m is the largest single character that will be displayed. Note that letters can change vertical size when you mix them with others, for example capital letters added to lower case m will make the lower case m get shorter, since the upper case letter is now scaled to the vertical size of the text box. So there may be a way to change the displayed characters by bracketing them with spaces and another character on each side. It may be a way to fool the tool to get different font sizes.

For example you could simply enter <m> for one size

or

<M> <space> <space> <space> <m> <space> <space> <space> <M>

to get a slightly smaller m.

The idea is that the bracketed outside letters don't show up at all, and the bracketing keeps what you want centered. But I can't vouch that doing this won't reveal other bugs in the tool, or that things will remain centered vertically.

edit: I just tried it and it seems to work. You can also use the letter <p> on one end and <t> on the other end to get a smaller m that will also center it vertically in the box. And if you add different numbers of spaces on each side of the bracket you can also slightly shift the displayed letter slightly to the left or to the right.

This is for a Land Rover but it's possible to leave the logo or change with another.
It's fit for put a qi wireless charger in the back and easy to install in any car, for have a navigator, handle the calls, dashcam...
It is also easy to fix behind the seats and give the chance to see movies or videos to passengers or children ...

Help! I'm trying to create an information plaque with inscribed letters, for a ship model. I don't know anything about 3D software, but I managed to create a file using Shapeway's free "apply a graphic file to a shape" program.

The file slipped through Shapeway's quality control and they sent me a plaque that had all the inner letter shapes missing. They apologized and suggested I fix the file with their free version of Netfabb. I used that program to attach a base plate to the plaque, but they tell me the file still has a few problems.

Would anyone be interested in fixing this job? I'd be happy to pay a fee, and you would be doing me a big favor!

I'm attaching a JPEG of the plaque, so you can see what I'm talking about. I plan on painting the letter cutouts one color, and the plaque surface a different color. If you are interested I'll send the flawed 3d model and the comments from Shapeways' tech support.

Thanks!

I am trying to make replacement handles for my rowing machine.

The drawing is a cutaway of what the handle should look like with dimensions noted.

I tried making a modeled file in Sketchup. I could get the cylinder tapered close to the correct size. I tried a follow around to make the semi closed end but it was never a half sphere. There was always some part protruding past the half mark.

I can't figure out how to put in the hole in the top of the dome.

Any way, if any one might be available for hire I would be interested.
Thank you.

Nice try on the Sketchup model.

I can make this for you for $5 based on your excellent drawing.

If you're on a PC you should try DesignSpark Mechanical. It's free to use but just keep in mind that it does not have the mirror in 3D command implemented. All mirroring needs to be done at the 2-D level, while sketching. DesignSpark Mechanical is MUCH easier to use than Sketchup. It's actually a reduced function version of a high-end engineering style of 3D modeling software called SpaceClaim.

I will check the dimensions when I get home tonight.

Would it be correct that you used a line drawing of the outside edge and then did a follow around?

Yes, but I did it according the sizes, because the drawing didn't match the sizes you have put.
Of course no problem to do it according your drawing.

Here's my version. No charge since you already have one free version to choose from now. :D This was done in DesignSpark Mechanical.

index.php?t=getfile&id=110544&private=0

index.php?t=getfile&id=110545&private=0

index.php?t=getfile&id=110546&private=0

As you can see in the dimension drawing that I created there is a slight discrepancy in your dimension drawing. If the outside diameter is 32.5 mm and the inside diameter is 27.5 mm then the wall thickness can only be 2.5 mm instead of your 6 mm as you have it designated on your drawing. Just as I was writing that I noticed an error on my part. The inside diameter is not 27.5 mm it tapers from 27.5 mm to 27 mm. I can easily correct this, but before I do, get back to me on what you think the wall thickness should be and I'll correct that as well if needed. Keep in mind that now that this is created as a solid model within DesignSpark Mechanical it is extremely easy to make changes to any of the dimensions of the part. For example, if I wanted to change the wall thickness of the part I would simply select it and type in the new wall thickness, which would take no more than a few seconds to do.

Let me know what you think.

Blenders scale

I have saved location,rotation and scale. Is Shapeways upload messing up or am I not seeing something?
(EDIT:) I used the shapeways scale thing and scaled it up by like 4000% and it looks fine now but I still think it should read blenders scale. >_<

There is a factor of 2.54 in there somewhere, as well as the more obvious 1000. My guess is that there was a confusion between millimeters and meters, and the site software then picked inches as the next best unit that would convert the then-microscopic model into something visible.

Yep, 0.238 / 9.402 = 0.0253137 which taking into account rounding/computer imprecision is too much like "254". SW "smartass" upload could mention what it does instead of go silent and do it anyway.

Simplest is disable units and go with 1 BU = 1 mm. "Decorations" only end giving headaches.

You only need to register with them to use the free version (netfabb studio basic) - or just click on the "Later" button on the registration screen that comes up when you start the program, it should let you continue after a few seconds.

I'm wanting to print a black plastic ring approximately 440mm in diameter but only about 1800mm2 in cross section, so although its large, its not got a large volume. the surface is simply curved, a little bit like an inflated inner tube for a bike and I need it to be as clean a finish as possible, and not look like its been 3D printed.

Can anyone advise on whether this will be possible at such a scale?

I don't think there should be copper or nickle in the silver, we using sterling silver and typically that won't cause a rash.


There will certainly be a significant amount of copper in silver jewelry - 7.5 to 7.6 percent by weight if it is "sterling silver" - pure silver would be too soft to be useful. Nickel is a different matter, I would not expect this in silver jewelry.
On the other hand, allergies to copper and even silver are not unheard of - DreamOfSongs, is your husband used to wearing rings or other metal jewelry ? (Some silver jewelry is plated with rhodium as that does not tarnish like silver, which would also reduce any allergic effect of the silver until the thin plating wears off. Not sure what it would cost to get your wedding rings plated by a local jeweller if and when shapeways confirms that their material is nickel-free.)

Thanks mkroeker.

Plating is a good suggestion, but afraid that it will eventually wear off --- like how you stated. I will probably re-design the rings and then send it to a local caster to make it in real gold. I want the rings to last forever!

Thank you!

I think I saw another option mentioned in an allergy-related thread here some time ago - getting a very thin sleeve made out of gold (or other non-allergenic material) that covers the inside of the ring (and is soldered to it). Pure 999/24K gold again could be too soft for a ring that is worn every day, but I'm only a chemist, not a jeweller. (Doing an allergy test might also be an option - there are people who are allergic to gold even, and it could also be that the skin irritation is simply from sweating if he is not used to wearing a ring)

It is a real pain in the wallet to have Shapeways cancel one (or more) items from an order, let the maker become aware of this fact, and immediately cancel the item from the order.

I would like to see a maker given 24hrs notice that a model is unprintable. The maker then has the option to update the model and have the order continue OR let Shapeways know the item can be cancelled. If a response isn't received by the maker within 24hrs then the item is cancelled as happens now.

THIS way if the maker acts fast enough the model can be revised, re-uploaded and kept on the SAME order so that an ADDITIONAL shipping charge will not be incurred. This very thing happened to me today. I was able to get a new model uploaded within 4 hours of receiving the email but NOW have to pay for ANOTHER shipment to go out!

This is one of the major reasons it's not been implemented yet. They can't just 'ignore' the price difference, and handling partial payments is very tricky.

A fair point, although that could be an additional "out" for Shapeways not to keep the item in the same order. I would hazard a guess that any model that cannot be printed simply because of size could automatically be assumed ineligible for the inclusion in original order.

Or how about this: When re-ordering (within 24 hrs of being notified by Shapeways) the maker could indicate somewhere "Please include in shipment with Order # XXXXX" and this would cancel shipping charges for that order.

Yes, I know, not all easy things to implement but I would hope Shapeways could at least look at the problem and try to find a solution at some point. This request isn't all about saving money for my own purchases; I'm running a business with very low profit margins. Every re-order like this cuts into profits considerably.

Looks like Shapeways was ahead of me. A solution may be in the works...

Lensman, thanks for the feedback.

The first step we are taking to fix this problem is the option to "merge orders".
This would enable you to upload a new version of your product, order it and merge this with your existing order.
In that way you would save on paying shipping costs 2x.
Stay tuned.

The other option(to do it in flow) is much more complicated for the reason Stonysmith explained.
How to handle less or more expensive parts. To ask for small extra payments or do refunds is harder from a tech and UX perspective.
