Marble Runners: Satellite and UFO in strong and flexible plastic.

Because I already had several in the back of my sock draw, marbles were an easy choice to set things in motion. They roll so well on their own and would also provide that extra bit of weight to propel the light-weight plastic forward.

The challenge began with designing the cage that surrounds the marbles. I needed to allow enough room to easily get the marbles in and out while still keeping them in place. Initially, I worked with two different ideas but eventually decided to produce both versions as a pair, one as an orange Satellite and the other as a yellow UFO.

The thing that I did not anticipate, though--and this is visible in the video--is the way the light refracts through the marbles as they roll. It creates this shimmering/flickering effect that really catches the eye. Just a slight flick of the wrist is all it takes to send these off rolling and spinning. Each works with three, 5/8" dia. (16 mm) marbles, the most common type around.

Hi all,

have a look at my Industrious bee cufflinks, I would love to have these featured!

I was inspired by the imagery of the bee which is used in St Peter's basilica in Rome on a papal emblem. Bees represent industry and are also incredibly important from an environmental perspective.

Would also love to hear any feedback!

Cheers
Dain

Not 100% sure, but I don't think the model ID's will go away some day.
Will check with the product team


The spin code allows for multiple products in the future.
So for example:

SPIN: 20Shapeways15
contains:
model id: 859764
model id: 185864

A quick example can already be seen (although we use a workaround for that one) is our Basic Sample Kit.
You order 1 product, however when you order it, it actually generates 2 orderlines, the kit and the gift card.

So I personally think that the model ID will remain.
Have to read the specs to be sure tho :)


Kind regards,

Hi all,

I created some means for generate ornamental openwork jewelry automatically. As result, I can generate an ornament first and next generate family of similar items based on forms, parameters and already generated ornaments. So, I created 100+ new ornaments last week and ready for generate 100+ items for each of my "native" category of items like this https://www.shapeways.com/shops/amalham?section=PendantEF&am p;s=0

I tried upload 50+ models of pendants like a woman yesterday ( https://www.shapeways.com/shops/amalham?section=PendantLikeV ase&s=0), but got troubles.
index.php?t=getfile&id=95617&private=0
And my general question is: how much models I can upload to my shop? Are there any limits or restrictions on the number of models in the store? My generative way gave me ability to create and upload 500+ different models per month. So, my shop could be giant during this year. Is it a problem for Shapeways?

Also if you interested in creating and buying customized items please let me know.

Sincerely.

Hi everyone!

I have Bachelor Degree in Fine Art - sculpture and am professional digital sculptor, specialising mostly human face and body and also great at creating animals, creatures, all kinds of characters, clothes and props.

I create realistic or between realistic and cartoony character sculpts and digitally paint them also realistically or/and cartoony in Pixologic ZBrush.

I easily translate 2D concepts to 3D models, also do 3D designing.

You can look at recommendations and quality I've done till now in my oDesk profile:

Some of my works also at my FB page:

Looking forward to our collaboration!

Thank You for Your attention
All the best!
