If my Prime account could cover the shipping on my Shapeways orders...man, I'd have a lot more of my own product laying around my house. So many of my pieces cost more to ship than to print...which leads me to bundle more parts together, which I'm sure is a headache for technicians.

Once in a blue moon, a customer will order a crazy big batch of stuff from my shop. (I sell small things that are pretty cheap to print individually.)

It might be a neat feature to redirect some of my mark-up and treat the customer to an extra piece on me as a thank-you.

Just make sure you use a 5mm handle for full-scale figures and a 3mm handle for Cyberverse/kreon scale figures.

Or, if you want to get really tricky, make a handle that is 3mm on the bottom, and 5mm at the top...then anyone can hold it.

Example.

Hey gang,

I just received my first Shapeways print and it was half the size of what the file is supposed to be.

Can someone create or point me to an obj file (I'm using 3dsmax) that I can import into my file to check for size? If I have something like a 1 cm cube, I can size my model to a size I know works.

Thanks in advance,

John Staats

I'd suggest opening the model in Netfabb Basic - www.netfabb.com
There you can check all the dimensions in a single glance, and you can re-size the model if necessary using the Part/Scale tool.

I'm looking for a 3D modeler preferably local in Southern California or on the West Coast to model a small plastic gauge/jig item use to set a part in its proper position. The design is basically a small box with some cutouts. I have the original item and it would be easiest to ship the original to you for measuring and creating the model. Since the part is quite simple in its features I hope the cost is affordable too.

I am looking for a 3D Modeler to help create a replica for a toy currently in production. As a painter, these will be used for personal custom projects. Please let me know if you're interested!

Attached my 3d model, i'm not a 3d designer so i need a little help.
This model is a brooch to hanging to the t-shirt of my employees. I need to add, to the back of the brooch, two small rings to support a safety pin.
Can someone help me?
Best regards.

I'm now starting to have the same problem with the sales overview download - have I sold too much too now ?

It does seem to work sometimes, probably about 50% of the time so maybe I'm just about on the limit.

Your real troubles will start only when you know too much...
(My guess is you are just experiencing another manifestation of the recent load spikes due to new model rendering code, automatic thin walls test being run for all conceivable materials, people actually using the thin wall fixing mode on non-trivial geometry)
