I see that Shapeways does not offer Aluminum as a material that can be 3-D printed.
I also don't see ABS plastic.

Is this something that is forthcoming?

Thanks,
Clark

Here is another example of putting multiple pieces on a connection sprue for minimal cost. It's an imaginary piece with a connection sprue capability at one end I've been playing with to examine price minimization. As far as I can tell a rounded connection sprue is the best case, and if that effort is too much a straight sprue is also better than tight packing depending on how many pennies are important to your cost competitiveness in the market. Again it's all about a 40mm diameter ball get as close as possible to the design.

index.php?t=getfile&id=86615&private=0

For the packed cases I curved the ends of the sprue to permit better polishing between parts. Illustrated sprues are slightly in excess of 2mm diameter which may or not be large enough to withstand polishing.

To my knowledge it's not fixed! This was just to note that Shapeways has acknowledged it as a bug.

Your search function does not work very well. It seemed as if it were fixed after your last upgrade, but is back to the way it was before.

For example, if I search for "1/700", I get over 28,000 hits, when in reality, there are less than 2,000 legitimate hits.

Again, it worked right for a while after your upgrade, but now it is back to its unusable, normal state.

So, I'm looking for someone who can turn the drawing that will be posted below into a 3D model. My friend is graduating from SVA soon and I wanted to give him a 3D printed version of his first concept drawing, of the monster in his thesis, as a graduation present. If anyone can do this then please respond and post how much it will cost from you. Thanks.

Nice project, but you'll get more responses if you post it in "3D modeler needed" section.

Hi, i live in mexico city and have been trying to get a sculpture i have reduced to 4cm and have had no luck! This is a great job opportunity for me and my deadline is coming up soon!

I have no clue how to design something digitally. If i send you a picture of different angles of the sculpture, can you make it 4cm?
How long will this take if i pay for an express process?
I'm willing to fly to you if you can offer a quick solution!

PM sent.

Modeling from photos is possible. Price and time will depend on the complexity but please note that printing and shipping can might take at least one week.

You should post some pictures so that time and costs could be estimated.

Best regards,
Nik

This is a problem for some Shapies, with various reasons. You might try reading through the "Bug Reporting" forum on Shapeways for how other people have solved this problem.

For me, it seems to be totally dependent on the browser...I can upload in Internet Explorer (which I use for no other purpose than uploading to SW), but I can't upload in Mozilla Firefox (which I use for everything else).

Good luck!

Check self-descriptions and associated customer comments in "Modelers for hire". Also please specify what it is that you want modelled - few if any will do everything from jewelry to figurines to warships or 1920s railway equipment.

? Then I'd have to alter all of the internal links on it. I don't think so.

Natalia, my shop is still showing a ghost Not for Sale model. Is this the bug that you are referring to?

Thanks for the feedback guys. You're right @mkroeker, the material does lend itself better to objects that are meant to be a bit chunkier. I have a vase design that might be better suited to these specs. But I will try your suggestion @Youknowwho4eva of tapering the lip because i really would like to be able to print these designs again :)

I went to make cupcakes last night. But I didn't have any eggs :'( So instead I melted some chocolate, and made a chocolate cup.

So if you're wondering if porcelain can be frozen with molten chocolate in it, the answer is yes. Hopefully I get eggs soon to test it in the oven.
