I was going to give this as a gift. But decide to put it up for auction at Ebay.

Yeah, they need to revamp some of the pages involved to make it more intuitive.

Here's how,
Click on one of your models to edit it. Then click on the Selling tab. (It doesn't look like a tab, that's one of the things they need to fix.)
index.php?t=getfile&id=75352&private=0


Check the two check boxes.
index.php?t=getfile&id=75350&private=0



Scroll down and pick a material group and set your markup. If you don't set your markup Shapeways can still sell your items, but you wont get any money.
index.php?t=getfile&id=75351&private=0

It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds.

Also, if you haven't already you'll need to add a PayPal account.

Move your mouse over the avatar icon in the upper right and click the settings option from the drop down menu.
index.php?t=getfile&id=75353&private=0



Click the Sell tab.
index.php?t=getfile&id=75354&private=0



Then click on the getting paid tab and fill out the forms.

Ok, I'm just getting into this whole 3D thing and I'm already stuck. I know exactly what I want (and, actually, already have pieces that I've bought that I'm patterning it off of), and have the basic form set up in Photoshop (moved there from Tinker), but I'm having some issues and hoping someone might be willing to lend a hand. I don't really want to spend much money on this as it might be a one off, or might turn into something more. I am willing to trade jewelry for help if someone is interested (I work in chainmail jewelry)

All it is is a flat ring with letters engraved in it. I've got the dimensions of the ring, exact thickness and width and all, but I don't know how to make the engraved letters. I don't really want it as a hole all the way through, I just want the letter set in just a little bit, maybe a tenth of a mm or so, maybe less?

I have pictures of the piece I currently have, I have pictures of what I want, I have exact measurements of what I'm looking for, but I just can't seem to get it all together.

Nice work Stony! :D

Looking at gagandeep's V8 and Stony's locomotive made me think of something that would be really cool. Try to design a tiny locomotive printed in situ that runs on hydrogen peroxide and a catalyst. Essentially, an air engine that operates via the pressure of oxygen escaping from the hydrogen peroxide. The catalyst would simply help the oxygen release quicker. For a catalyst, one would have to look into that, but three that I know of off the top of my head are platinum, silver and manganese dioxide. One wouldn't need the high concentration grades used for rocket engines and whatnot since the power level needed would be very low, so just plain old hydrogen peroxide from the drug store would be fine.

The challenging part would be to design valves and pistons that could be printed in situ, yet, still have good sealing characteristics when in operation. This would involve making cylinders and valves that have a printed state clearance that slides into a working state operational clearance or something like that. Difficult to design, but not impossible.

If one could design something like this and get it to move a few tens of centimeters under it's own power and make a video of that, it would most likely go viral among train aficionados and when they learned that they could get their own to play with by placing an order on Shapeways one would make a nice chuck of cash in a short amount of time. :D

Hi Oskar. I see I see.

As for the clearance issue though, seems like they would be waisting a lot of machine volume with 40 mm clearances. Is this an error on Shapeways' behalf?

1. I have never heard the term sinterbox. Where does this term originate?
I assume Shapeways invented this term. Their technology is called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), so it is a sintered box.

The Magics software calls them sinterboxes already, not a SW term.

Shapeways and the others will only be able to get away with these prices for about two more years. That's my prediction. By this time in 2016 they will have needed to either lower their prices drastically or discontinue the material.

This will be a good thing actually. The current prices stifle the design of large objects and it is currently causing the evolution of humans to be suppressed. When we first picked up two stones and cracked them together to make a sharp cutting tool we started evolving at an exponential rate from that point. Just look at all that we have created in the last 200 years! :D Our evolution is deeply rooted in how easily we can produce new things and once we get over this temporary wall we are going to see our evolution blossom wondrously and it is going to be absolutely amazing. :)

I just read somewhere on the forum a statement by one of the Shapeways employees that the limit has been raised to 2 million triangles and that they are planning to raise it even further.

Amazing design! This is going to look astounding once you get it patinated!

I agree with Numarul7. You are definitely going to lose some detail in places. Keep in mind that currently 3D printed jewelry has the problem of print lines. They are minute, but they show up and must be polished away, consequently, more polishing is needed than traditional methods. Regardless, I think it's still going to look great! Provided you don't order this in premium silver. If ordered in premium silver it will be ruined.

For example, my Ouroboros Ring design in premium silver.

https://images1.sw-cdn.net/comment/picture/original_2213_45882_1391199035.png


Even in polished silver the details were not showing up good enough for my liking so I had to enlarge everything.

And then it was good enough.

That's a great start!

Chess is played by millions worldwide so it's a good area to design for.

The handles on the tray look perfectly steampunk along with the flathead screws you used on both designs. But it feels to me like you need to keep working on it. Add more mechanical items and make it more complex. Throw in a bunch gears of different types and whatnot. You can get gears and other mechanical parts already made at places like GrabCAD and the Trimble Warehouse and TurboSquid.

On the other hand, these may be looking good enough once cast in silver and patinated.
