Came up with this on a whim. Might hurt just a little to wear, but you'll never forget you have your wedding band on.

The print below is Polished Brass, and I think it came out pretty good. I have sizes 4 through 10.

ASAP is an acronym for "As Soon As Possible", thus refers to how quickly the result is needed.

Hello, I'm looking for someone to design a model of a rubber loafer for me based on a shoe that was discontinued in 2012. I need a model that I can present to a manufacture to have some pairs made for me. Please feel free to email me with any questions, I've attached a few pictures of the shoes in question.

Thanks for suggestions.
Yes, sizes, widths, colors etc. are configurable - they can be set inside Pajek before generating X3D files.

Hey everybody.

I only joined a few days ago and have already uploaded some designs to my shop.
I'm not expecting to sell my models any time soon but i thought it was best to dip my toes into the pool that
is 3d printing.

I've seen much in my short time here and I'm impressed by the talent on show.
I'm also excited to see the power to sell put firmly in the creator's hands.

Thanks if you read this.

Dom.

Probably not. Those quantities depend entirely on your printer, how you have set it up, and the software settings in the program you use to print with. Your best bet would be to use the software that you use to print on your MakerBot, it should tell you all those things.

You might have better luck asking your question in another forum that gets more traffic; this board is about the API used to print with Shapeways (which appears to be unrelated to your question) and is pretty quiet.

I made a pendant prototype. The Tree in Cross Pendant was inspired by the Salvador Dali. Salvador Dali is the most versatile and prolific artists of the twentieth century. His surrealism works consisted of double images, floating objects and the stuff of dreams.

The cubic cross looks like it is floating in the air with a tree inside. The Tree Cross Pendant is 3D printed from wax and cast in brass.

I have designed a series of prototypes of Greek and Trojan toy soldiers for a client who is having them reproduced in China by injection molding. We hope this will be ongoing with many more series of toy soldiers in the future, but this is our first such venture. The client does all of the dealings with the Chinese injection molding company. Prior to this I've had no experience with the process at all. I've found scant info about it on the web.

I recently received photos of the first toy soldier from the representative in China that show a wax model they've sculpted to to replicate one of the 3D prints we had printed in Frosted Ultra Detail resin and sent to them. While it's very similar in many ways, the spirit and style are wrong and important details are very distorted. My sculpture was certainly not without flaws that I would have been grateful to have corrected, but this result is extremely disappointing to me. The future does not look rosy.

Shapeways does have the ability to print models in wax. The resolution is less than Frosted Ultra Detail but I don't think that would be a problem as the Chinese artist has increased the model size considerably from my client's original specifications, and the final product will be small so it will appear very detailed anyhow. There is size limitation for wax prints that would not allow us to print the models in one piece. Also various parts such as spears and swords would be extremely fragile. The fragility of wax is a major concern as the prints would have to be sent to China.

I need advice from someone who is familiar with the process of preparing models for creating injection molding molds, or is aware of any references that might help me to understand it better. I would like to know if it would be possible/feasible for me to design the toy soldiers in separate parts that could be either assembled as needed or used as is by the mold makers in China so that the spirit and style of my sculpture would be preserved in the final product.

I don't want to cause unnecessary trouble but I do also regard re-sculpting our prints to be redundant as well as an opportunity for error and distortion.

Thank you for any guidance you can provide.

Wax is twice the resolution of FUD, so it's more detailed.

You have to ask the factory what they are capable of. With out pictures I can't help much more than that.

It's been days and I still can't get PayPal to work. Customer Service says they can't reproduce it so am I the only one it's happening to? .

Edit: Alright. the problem appears to have been a typo that caused PayPal to reject it automatically. Note to self, if this ever happens again, make sure I didn't invert any of the letters in my address.

Download Netfabb basic, open your file in this. If it's non-manifold Netfabb will let you know straight away with a big warning triangle! Use the repair tools to highlight and maybe repair the model. Failing that, it will show where you need to look on your model in Blender and fix it there.

Good luck!

Hi,
Is this related to your Netfabb 'out of memory' thread? If so, sounds like your model has too many polygons (triangles). The limit for Shapeways is 1 million triangles, although I would expect Netfabb to handle much more. What software are you using for model creation?

Is the file STL-binary or STL-Ascii? If you can open it in Netfabb or Meshlab, then you could convert it to the binary format.

Hi,

I'm modeling a tube for printing (it's going to have more details, but a tube is its base).
While setting things up i was wondering how many rotation segments i would need for a smooth finish?
It's going to have to fit snugly around a brass pipe and I don't want any of those lines visible.

My example shows 108, 72 and 36 rotation segments...off course i want to use a lower number rather than high.
What would be best? The model will be printed in Strong & Flexible Plastic and the size is 44 x 80 mm.

Happy to hear your thoughts!

Quoting Stonysmith.from here http://tinyurl.com/k9llsbo

... to get maximum smoothness out of the printer, the faces should be no wider than 1/2 of the "minimum detail" value. WSF has a minimum detail of 0.2mm.. so your faces should not be more than 0.1mm across.

Also note the measurement across the wall thickness. I had a part rejected because of thin walls. I designed a 'tube' with walls of 0.8mm thick, when Shapeways measured it across the flats it was only 0.78mm. It still got rejected.

Thank you for this, it makes sense to take the minimum detail factor into consideration.

It does amount to an incredible high number though...If i need need 10 segments for every mm of the circumference, in my case the number of rotation segments would be 1193. My software doesn't support more than 1000 ☺

The Stonysmith formula makes a lot of sense but looking at the surface of this material: sanded, grainy sort of quality...Wouldn't a 0,2 mm face be ok? Or even 0.3? Not that i don't appreciate your answer off course ☺

(Wall thickness will be ok i think, 3mm.)

To extend my earlier notes.. if you want maximum smoothness, the facets should be 1/2 of the "step size" of the printer. On a number of the Shapeways printers, the step size is even smaller than the Minimum Detail setting - I think a number of the printers actually have like 10 steps within the Minimum Detail measurement. Time to break out the facets. <grin>

Here's another viewpoint on the same topic:
http://stonysmith.com/wired/scaling.asp

You obviously must adhere to the limits imposed by your software, but your original question was "how to make it smooth".

Here's another consideration for you: How closely will the item be viewed? If it is only going to be viewed from a distance (in model trains we call this
the "Three Foot Rule"), then the item can be rather coarse. If someone is going touch it, or worse, to view it under a microscope... you'd better add "more" detail <grin>

Wow, 10 steps within minimum detail? That's impressive actually.

☺ It won't be viewed under a microscope (phew). Just as long as i don't get a faceted look, it's all good.

I'm going to take a risk and make the segments 0.3 mm.
I'm thinking it will seem smooth to the eye and touch. And the grainy surface will help a bit as well:-)

Thank you for the insights and for helping me decide!

We are looking to expand our platting offerings. Is there a reason you want copper?

I had one get stuck in a loop, I noticed it had the same render listed twice. I've reported this. But try turning on/off materials to see if you can break the loop. I turned off the material (the only one I had turned on) and turned it back on, fixed my issue.

The mismatch in dimensions should be fixed now.
