Migrated Dragon Egg Tea Cup Post from previous post.

dragon egg as a japanese style tea cup roughly 3" in diameter.
EDIT: I went ahead and ordered one in Celadon Green :D
Just a note to pass along to help those glazing and firing these pieces:
If you put a nice little ledge on the top edge of the foot it will prevent the glaze from running down and potentially sticking to the kiln shelf. It will also give a nice clean edge to the bottom of the glaze. :D

Sharpies work well for me for quick color on WSF or touch-ups on BSF.

]I received my print and my experience with the material was that it's quite a bit smoother than dyed WSF. But the photos on this forum indicate that my experience is the exception rather than the rule. It's also more porous, which can be problematical for those of us that like to paint our prints. Because of these reasons I will not be repeating the experiment with it unless the price comes WAY down. It would have to be within a dollar or two of BSF for me to consider ordering in this material again.index.php?t=getfile&id=106653&private=0

Forgive me if this has been asked a million times.

I created something in FreeCad that has multiple pieces. I exported it to a .stl file and then uploaded to the shape ways site. However, when I view it is has become a single object. What steps do I need to take to ensure it is printed as individual pieces?

Thank you to all the talented people who replied and showed interest to this project here are the details below that can answer all your common questions, if you have any other question or clarifications feel free to contact me, via forum email or my contact number.


i am requesting each modeler to submit to me their idea in terms of a visual representation on how they are going to tackle this project, include your fee for the picture you are going to send and i will pick the top 5 and pay you for the design based on the amount you asked for it.

this should level the playing field and help me decide which modeler to get

I am having a hard time to visualize this project, so submit now and if i do like your idea i will send the payment to you, i will also post the names and ideas chosen here to make it transparent and fair to everyone bidding.

i am setting the deadline till the 11th of July 2015, only for the pictures / concept arts.

Good luck people and hope to get entries soon.

**** P.S. if i am impressed with the first ones that submit i will select them right away. =) ****

Mode of payment: PAYPAL
include your payment details or payment mode preferred with your submissions


Open Budget, but initial target is 1000 USD for fabrication and design fees, i have not yet settled down on a limit yet, if i see a project worth investing more then i will.


Think of this project as a token of appreciation to one of the two biggest companies here in our country, this will also be our advertisement that we do offer 3d printing services and our creative capability in utilizing such technology, also to showcase your design to our country, bloggers, news crews and other important people are going to be there for they will see this work of art.


The idea is to give tribute to the scholars sponsored by these two big companies, showing how they work hand in hand with each other in achieving the dream of providing hope for people who are less fortunate and cannot afford to pay for their own studies.


Size is given a free hand here but i am looking for 3 options small medium and large, keep in mind that the city will be on display and the names should be readable without strain to the eyes and can be distinguishable from each other, a good example would be a building can be composed of only one name repeating on each side to complete the structure and another name would be completing another building.

Kindly provide me your proposed dimensions for small medium and large scale.


I am hoping to show materials that are made of metal and something that can be transparent and colorful, I prefer that the BOYSEN COMPANY logo be the colorful one since they are in the paint industry.

The other company METROBANK is one of the biggest banking companies here in our country, i want this company to portray stability, strenght and prestige hence the metal finish, or material.


Two cities composed of names which will be provided to the ones who will get the project, the initial idea is to connect the two cities with a bridge, which is up to the modeler how to do this.

Target shape of each city is square and they should both be of the same size and level since one should not surpass the other in terms of representation.

i hope i answered all your questions people and good luck! +639175565386 (viber,whatsapp,wechat)

An EXCELLENT tool for measuring the dimensions of your models.

Here's the most recent video (most current version):

Measure-It 1.5

More details on the addon (and the download):


From the Author Antonioya:

"You can use it for:

Mesh vertex to vertex measure: Length between vertices in the same mesh.

Mesh vertex labeling: Add a label to any mesh vertex. This allows identify easily different areas or objects in the scene.

Object to Object: Distance between object origins, vertex to origin or vertex to vertex.

Object to origin: Distance between object origin to scene origin or vertex to scene origin.

Allows work with different scales."
