This functional Honey dipper is great for summer tea party's. With our great dipper you can Twirl Your Honey from Morning to Night!!!! This is the first Printed of a few designs.

My partner and I started designing a BEEindPendant line (a line of pendants) and now we are making a honey dipper line. We are bee keepers and artists, builders and inventors. I am known as the Bee Queen. I dance with 12,000 honey bees to convey that nature is nothing to fear if you are open to duetting with it. For more info please visit me at http://saramapellibeequeen.com.

Our shapeways store is called In the Bee Queens Hive. We currently have about 19 pieces.

Proceeds from our pieces go towards the building a pollinator house in the Columbia Gorge and to our future bee dance tour in Europe.
Thanks for checking us out, Sara and Theo

Just a quick update: I got the model in matte black steel and although there is some variance in the thinner lizard it did not simply sag, more of a warp like 1 - 1.5 mm. -S

Hi,

good feedback. Yes it's hard because of the arguments Bathsheba made, but it does not mean we do not want to do it.
Stay posted :)

That it is the main problem with jewelry , they must come with the chain and the earrings with backs / hooks.

It is not impossible , it is like having a little bag with the backs or chain or hooks and the product. User can mount the earrings are not that stupid , but buying around the internet will land with a 5$ back + 10$ shipping ...they end not buying.

So we literally don't mind having added price of the hooks + the product rather the buyer landing not buying.

I doubt anyone want Shapeways to mount the earrings and etc that will be a disaster and land wasted time.

But landing to the buyer a little extra bag with that along the pendants , earrings. It is doable.

Just needed to explain to the designers : "HEY DESIGNER X THE CHAIN HAS 3 MM END WE ONLY HAVE 2 LENGTHS DEAL WITH IT" and etc

When people buy silver or gold stuff they expect to come with ... the chain and x.

No hard feelings!

Big shout out to Shapeways, received my reprinted 75 ton LowBoy today and it made the trip intact !! each part was in it's own zip lock bag and then in the middle bubble wrap, So great to deal with a company that stands behind the product and the designer in this case Baldylox.

I plan on do a building thread and plan on ordering more items from Baldylox and Shapeways !!

You never do a ring band lower than 1 mm (and even at this size it can crack if the design is bulky) , it is recommended to be at last 1.2-1.5 mm. So on all rings there must not be a part of 0.8 ... fingers are strong enough when you make a fist to crack them out. :)

So more like 1.2x1.5 mm with a bit of test print in FUD before you go metal.

Nice designs overall guys!

Hi there,

I am pretty impressed by what you are doing here. Congrats.
On my side, I am rather on dice, but one die inspired me a ring and I have a question. Usually, when I made rings, I kept the height and the thickness constant whatever the size. But this is a lot of work to make the different sizes. So I decided to scale the whole ring so that if one ring has an internal diameter of 2/3 of the biggest one (my reference ring), the thickness and the height of the ring will also be 2/3 of the reference ring.
My question is how thin can I go with the smallest ring (height and thickness of the ring for say an internal diameter of 15mm)?
Would 0.8x1.33mm be enough for all metals except steel (bronze, silver, gold, plated metal etc.)?
And there is perhaps an additional difficulty because it is a double ring so the upper one is floating in the void (so perhaps it is considered as an unconnected wire? Or is it a wall?)... Here is a render to make it clear:
index.php?t=getfile&id=135823&private=0
As you can see in the right cut, the section is nearly half a circle that's why I speak about thickness and height.
Thanks for your help.

Magic.

Thanks a lot for your recommendation. I made the ring thicker (unfortunately by reducing the clearance, since they are nested rings). But they are so many constraints that I cannot reach 1.2mm (I am at 0.9mm mini now). If there are problems, for those smaller sizes I will make a second version on which I will modify the section to have it completely circular.
I will post the result in some other sections of the forum.
Cheers,

Magic


So many things to design, so little time...

Thanks!
I really like steel, especially black steel.
Tears of Myrrha is a pendant, but a version as earring is a great idea, I had not thought!

Hi there,

Did you manage with your request?
You need to supply a little bit more information for the design apart from the finger size as it affects your budget later on.
For example the centre stone size and the small stone sizes.

Please advise if you still need assistance here.

have an awesome day!

thanks for the advice bro, i was under the impression from what ive read you're able to 3d print anything you want for personal use, including copyrighted properties, and also that you are able to sell such items on a site like this for example until a request to remove it is made by the copyright holder.

i only really asked as i didn't want to go threw all the revisions etc to make it print ready to find out that due to copyrights i would be unable to have it printed,as i had a similar issue with devianart, but from what ive seen on the online store here that doesn't seem to be an issue. thanks for all your feedback im going to try upload it and see what the feedback is from the auto checker thingy.

Seeing copyrighted material for sale here does not tell you anything about the legality - shapeways operate under the "safe harbor" concept of the DMCA, that is they do not proactively check for possible infringements but will remove models on the request of a copyright holder (who may still sue the offender). There have been several articles on the topic of "intellectual property" by shapeways' attorney Michael Weinberg
on the blog recently.
