Is the render farm down or something? New model uploads aren't loading images or checks this evening, and never appear in "my models". Also not getting the email.

 Topic: Wall-thickness rules for large WSF prints -- can't find them
Wall-thickness rules for large WSF prints -- can't find them [message #94840] Mon, 28 July 2014 01:29 UTC

The wall thickness rules used to specify a needed increase of 0.006mm for every millimeter beyond 117mm for WSF parts. There was a calculator, as well (http://www.shapeways.com/design-rules/wsf_bigparts), but the link redirects to the general materials page.

Sorry if I've missed an announcement somewhere, but I'm wondering if the rules for large parts have changed since I last looked at them (probably over a year ago) and if perhaps I'm looking for them in the wrong place.

Thanks!

It may be worth your while reviewing the information SW gives about the printing characteristics of their printer w/SWF. Makes for interesting reading, in any event, and very nice of SW to publish it. https://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/design_rules_for_3d_prin ting

That said, however, the referenced page shows they measured a deviation from desired wall thickness of only 0.06 mm at a nominal thickness of 1.0mm.
Naturally, that's not the polished version - it's what comes out of the machine.

If it were me, I would probably just bump the thickness up a bit. Or, perhaps take advantage of the fact that you're not confined to using traditional flat stock for the wings...you could perhaps get equal or better buckling strength even with the thinner cross section if you used a corrugated shaped sheet???

Hello,

I would like to enable customers to modfiy an existing stl model ( https://www.shapeways.com/model/1443228/xbox360-controller-a sus-google-nexus-7-2012.html?modelId=1443228&materialId= 25). To be more precise, I want to allow customers to change the depth of the smartphone arms on my model to accommodate various smartphone accessories (eg cases, large batteries etc.)

Would you have a tutorial on how to do this with existing stl models?

Would be fantastic to be able to assign changeable parts for a model...

While I agree that "be the first" sounds much better than "first to try", the problem remains that as a customer one cannot see when a model was uploaded - so does "be the first" mean "... after the designer finished working on this last night" or "...in all these years who actually buys this thing" ?

And I still think that this is not the right solution to the problem - I believe it is not so much the new models that one needs to worry about, but rather the new customers. One can have 20 technically successful prints of some WSF ring that is represented by a flashy photorealistic render, and get 19 disappointed customers who never saw "first to try" but are not likely to try again when the costume jewelry they looked forward to suddenly looks like something out of a chewing gum vending machine. What is needed IMHO is a big disclaimer page presented somewhere in the checkout process that reminds people that they get something printed on demand, with specific process restrictions, and in the case of plastics comes unpainted and possibly even improperly cleaned no matter what colorful pictures were to be seen in the shop.
