The story says that they install the clock parts.
You can just barely make out the hands in the photo he attached.

Edit: Nope I lied. You can't here on shapeways, I was looking at an image opened from the site.
Guess the quality went down!

I like the idea behind the watch!

So the only 3d printed parts are the plain case ring around an off-the-shelf quartz movement and the buckle of its leather wristband ? Hmm...

I have the idea to create something for the European championship 2016.
So why not a Bottle opener for the many beer bottles.

I combined the art and the pattern of the football and create a Bottle opener from this.

Printed in Stainless Steel.

For better präsentation i have a video

@ Bathsheba: The thing is, I create my products with a script (appropriate for fractal art), without using a CAD program. (I guess you did the same with your Menger Sponge?) For convenience's sake, I didn't bother to convert them into binary afterwards. (Until now.)

My favorite app, Ring Popper, got buggy yesterday (5/25/16). Default size 8 saves as size 7. I take screen shots while I work as reference for mm's used so I am certain I was saving size 8 but my model saved as 7. Yesterday I was finally able to save an 8 after loading new popper pages & tweaking the sizes up & down and JUST NOW it saved an 8 so it's not a critical problem, just annoying. Hope my reporting may be meaningful to the tech gurus since a recent change in some line of code may be responsible.

Hi Youknowwho4eva,

Thanks for your reply. The 'Add Cart' button, I 'm having trouble with is on the 'Upload & buy' page.
I currently have to go to my models page and use the Add cart button to order my prototypes.

Hope that helps,

  checkBox = document.data-sw-list-chooser-select-option-id=75;
    checkBox.checked = true;


But it did not work, does anybody know a solution for my Intention ?

I need simple model aircraft winglets modeled to my general specifications. I say "simple" because it is a single smooth surface, but it will involve compound curves similar to this:
index.php?t=getfile&id=154801&private=0
If it is modeled as a set of parametric patches, then they need to join smoothly to at least the first two derivatives and still be straightforward to modify main features without breaking anything. Experience with aircraft design is helpful but not required.

This is for hobby purposes and the results will be put in the public domain. I can't pay a lot but I can give you prominent credit. See the project description here http://superliminal.com/gliders/butterknife/ for the general idea. You may reply with a project quote, hourly rate or both. And of course feel free to ask questions.

Hi,
I am looking to create a replica of a large McDonald's French Fries box via 3D printing. We've attached an image of the box that we'd like to create for reference. The box would be solid red, with a polished finish. The box will essentially be a pen holder that will hold chopsticks. So it will be partially solid inside with a number of holes to hold the chopsticks. The holes will be staggered vertically to give the effect of French fries in a box.

The dimensions of the box are below:
Base to top of side: ~6"
Base to top of middle arch: ~7 1/8"
Width at base: ~4"
Width at top: ~5 1/4"
Depth at base: ~2 1/4"
Depth at top, before rear arch: ~2 1/2"
Bottom arch height, front: ~3/4"
Bottom arch height, back: ~7/8"
All arches width: ~3.5"
Upper arches, rear and front height: ~1"

Images are attached below for reference. Please note, we will NOT be including the McDonald's M on the front. The product should just be solid red.

Please share cost and timing estimate for this project. We would like to have this created and in hand by mid to late next week. Let me know upfront if this is doable/how quickly this project can be created. Thanks!

Hi,
I have read through some of the post on trademark infringement and would be curious to find out whats Shapeways take on this.

I have randomly searched and seen some designs based on Game of Thrones.

Does it mean anyone can just do that e.g design a superman/batman or this is subject to a request for a takedown/cease and desist by the trademark owner?

Somehow you appear to have missed references to the rules defined in the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act, in particular its "safe harbor" concept under which shapeways as a service provider operates), and to shapeways' counsel Michael Weinberg's series of posts on various aspect of Intellectual Property laws on the shapeways blog ?

You obviously could DESIGN anything you wish. The challenge comes when you offer it for sale.

A portion of the DMCA law is a provision for "safe harbor". If Shapeways were to make the decision to deny some model based upon trademark, then they would be required to verify and deny ALL models. By "turning a blind eye" to infringements, they are not legally liable themselves for the infringement. If they were to have a policy where they policed models for infringement, then they would be legally responsible for the lawsuits from the infringement.

Under Safe Harbor, all they have to do is to process any takedown orders they receive.

Hey everyone! I have a question for you which I've been contemplating: is 3D modeling a handcraft?

This conversation came up for us recently in a meeting, where some people argue yes; that the tools we use in a software like zbrush (for instance) mimic the tools of real life clay sculpting. The only thing that is different is the medium that one is digital, and one is physical. But arguably, they both need a certain level of artisan fine-touch, which can only be transferred through the literal hand of an artist.

So what do you guys think? 3D modeling, hand craft or no?

Hi,

I would like to see 3d modelling as a handcraft, but honestly this medium has a lot more advantages; major correction posibilities like scaling, mirroring, streching, copy, rotate,... endless digital stuff, while someone who makes something by hand is very restricted and has to make the right choises and use the right tools from scratch to finish.

I made some clay sculptures in the past but I could never achieve the results I had later with digital sculptures.

So I think a skilled handcraft-artist should earn more respect than a digital one. :)

Kind regards
Steven
