I see steel more fit for designs inspired by mythology or something related to it, to give that old look.

Is there any interest in a post-production service for 3D printing?

i.e. what if you want to sell assemblies of various 3D printed products AND you don't want to manage that process yourself? -or- you want to sell hand-painted figures but don't have the skill-set? -or- you want to ship your products to your customers with branding etc (white label drop shipping)

You could upload your model much like shapeways and then select the various post-processing steps i.e. deb-burr, paint, ship w/ marketing, etc and it would give you a quote?

In this manner you could provide custom 3d printed products end-to-end without direct involvement.

Hi all,

At present it's no problem to deliver prints to Russia via post forwarding services like https://qwintry.com etc. However Shapeways create additional request in shop creating wizard for Russian IP-s (Billing address). For some other IP-s it request is absent.

Thanks.

What kind of budget did you plan on it? Because printing it at that size will probably cost over $500

Hi,

It would be unprintable model for Shapeways 0,8 mm minimal wall thickness process. May be it could become possible by i.Materialise (0,5 mm) print process. This ring can be manufactured by CNC machines (only???) or by http://www.cooksongold.com/ (0,4 mm). As example this item http://www.sculpteo.com/en/print/pa_ring_d18_se84a20m4m10t1f r008-wax/YbiLyMWZ is unprintable by all these manufacturers.

Are you have already manufactured item (real photo)?

Alright, I feel dumb, but my search-fu is failing me.
When I type up the descriptions for items in my shop, I've so far kept it simple. Line breaks, put a blank line between relevent stuff, and hit 'save'. And it looks good in the box there.
But then when I actually view the item, it compacts it all into one block paragraph.
I haven't even been able to find if I'm supposed to use HTML formatting or what.
Gah,

You can use html commands like <br> to go to the next line. That's pretty much all I've been using, with the possible exception of an html link command here and there.

I think you can also use a rich text editor and cut and paste that into the description box, but don't hold me to that.

This is a deep zoom detail of a 3D fractal hybrid, a mix between the fantastic Amazing Box (a box folded in the 4th dimension) and a Kaleidoscopic Iterated Function System.

This deep zoom detail is the most interesting combination of geometric and organic shapes I have found in this kind of hybrid, I am blown away by the beauty of it 3D printed. Every angle you watch it in presents new shapes.

I've got this jaguar bust that I created a year ago that I would like to turn into a pendant.
I'm not sure how to make it lay across the skin though.
I've thought about rounding out the neck but that doesn't look very attractive.

Did you take in account gravity ? From the way it is now , kinda looks on my eyes that will not stand on table due the front piece being counter weighting.

When design try to experiment with things in your house , and ask , "why this can it is not that shape ?" , then use the can and realize that "why".

It is called product research / product development / brain storming. :)

Maybe will stand if FILLED but without nothing , really looks likely to fall.

So my advice it is to test in -> WSF a small version like not real dimension / like 7 cm minimug coat it and test ...without liquid and with.

Even try variations of it. 3-5

ROUGH estimate: Somewhere above $1000:
http://www.stonysmith.com/wired/VolumeEstimator.asp?L=60& ;W=60&H=500&T=0&S=1

Shapeways changed their pricing method for WSF a few months back, and it makes doing an estimate very difficult.
If you can manage to make the model hollow (and it'd help to be in multiple parts), you can drop the price significantly, but it is quite a bit trickier to make the estimate.

I'd like to add an engraving via the printing process. Has anyone else done this?
I seem to always get rejected for thin walls.
Can anyone give me an idea as to how to do this and NOT get rejected.

The way I'm doing it is creating extruded type and subtracting it from the model.
Should I go shallower? Deeper?

The problem might not be with depth or height, but rather the width. Look at areas such as the middle line of the B, H, P, R or e, i,t

Did you not get any pictures along with the rejections?

====
The other thing to check is that if you start with a wall that is 1mm thick, and if you engrave letters halfway deep in it, then resulting wall "under" the letter is only 0.5mm, which would be too thin for some materials.

It says on the material page that the model should not touch water. However, the reason given is that the colours will fade. How about plain sandstone without colour? Will prolonged exposure to water reduce the structural strength of the material?

I have designed this bonsai pot. Obviously it needs to be water resistant if I'm growing a tree in it. I like the texture and colour of the plain sandstone for this model.

Prolonged exposure to moisture can degrade the superglue (by essentially reversing the bonding reaction), and both microbial action and various organic acids from the soil are not likely to improve the situation. I expect at the very least you would need to coat the inside of your planter with something like a polyurethane varnish, or use a plastic liner.

Thanks. Coating the inside would not be a problem for my own use, but I should probably make a note for anyone that may want to print it from my shop. How is strong and flexible plastic with water? A plastic liner wouldn't be an option because the pot needs to drain water freely.

Hi, thanks for the response.

The tutorial pointed me to settings where i would find a place to drop the code but the image was not showing (which might have shown where).
Since we have account settings but also shop settings i mistakenly searched the account settings first to no avail.

I have seen more broken image links on the site so i assumed it might have to do with changes that are being made.
See screenie included.

Broken image links in (at least) the "Using and understanding google analytics" tutorial appear to point to (...)/blog/uploads/(...) while the current folder structure on the server, as evidenced by images in recent blog posts, appears to be (...)/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/(...)" .
