Just to check the integrity of the files, try opening them in Netfabb Basic. www.netfabb.com


yep, both 3dx files open with no problems in netfabb Basic. wondering what * Missing Paths * for the >Import X3D/VRML2 Operator Presets might mean? first time using x3d files. what do i know? i've got the addon enabled. seems the last time this python script was worked on was in 2009. should work? i'll try removing it and reinstalling.

UPDATE: exported "part" as .x3d from netfabb and Blender 2.70 loads it in editable state. go figure.

Make me think of this question: which 3D printer can work without gravity...

Hey Guys,

I've recently reached the half way point in one of my 3D modelling projects. Before I get anything printed and before dad can part with his hard earned money I'd like to get some feedback from you'll.

How good is WSF for HO scale trains? I hear that WSF has a grainy texture. This means my intricately designed model will have to subjected to quite a bit of fine sanding before it actually looks smooth and presentable. I'm pretty sure that the sanding is going to destroy the fine detail.

Has anyone here done models in HO scale using WSF? Or can I use another material? FUD and FD are indeed a possibility but the price may be a little steep for my budget. Another material I came across was "Metallic Plastic" that seems nice and looks grainy but heard it feels much smoother than WSF. Anyone with experience with MP?

Looking forward to some feedback.

Cheers.

I surprised my wife with this pendant for her birthday today. It was my first print and one of my first models ever. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Also, Shapeways support was extra helpful with my order and went out of their way to make sure it arrived in time for her birthday. They treated my small order as if it was just as important to them as it was to me. Thanks Shapeways.

@AlanHudson: we need an elementary validity checker for SVX files.

This message:
We're unable to process this file. 
Check your file for errors and click 'Update File' to upload a new version.

is not really sufficient to know what might be wrong with the file.

It's rather hard to know whether there is an error or not when you're just learning how to build the file.

We've been working around the clock and believe we will be able to meet the estimated ship date on your Order Status page



With perhaps a few exceptions, as a TARDIS is unavailable...

No great drama, I'm certain that SW is doing all that is humanly possible. I've been a customer for many years, they've always come through.
