It's a new version of the original version. With this design you snake the stamp roll coil through the baffles and channels located near the slot. When you pull on the coil backing the stamps separate from the coil as they emerge from the holder. For the 27 people who still use stamps this product is for you!

index.php?t=getfile&id=57743&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=57744&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=57745&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=57746&private=0Hi Everyone,

I am a newbie 3D modeler and I am accepting works involving creation of 3D models and documentations/ assembly drawings.

I've done a couple of 3D prototyping jobs here, the concepts is similar it's just that the output varies with each product.

Depending on the completeness and the complexity of your design, my standard turn around time for a single-part product is only about 2-3 hours. But for products having several moving parts, I will have to see the actual design first before I can give a more accurate estimate of how long it will take me.

Please see attached sample of my other CAD works and please feel free to contact me if you'd be interested.

Thanks,
Ace Caoile

A service dedicated to jewelry in special http://www.jeweldistrict.com/front/index.php located in South Korea , has no tax fee to EU/US.

It is a startup so we will see how evolves in the future.

WOW! This is amazing news! They have a patinated finish and say they can do the work and get it delivered in ten days! I'm going to make a big order of a number of things and see how their quality is and if it's true that they can deliver on time. If the quality is good and their lead time is as specified, then I will cancel my plans of doing my own castings and just use them, for now.

I have been hoping for for a long time for these two features! This would give me the ability to advertise and then drop ship to my customers. I could also do customizations, like engraving, since every order would be 3D printed. I could also offer every size when it comes to rings since I wouldn't need to spend thousands of dollars maintaining a huge inventory.

Best of all, this will eventually force Shapeways to follow suite and offer the same services with the same lead times in order to remain competitive. This could be the edge of a threshold where we see the full implementation of what the founders first envisioned for Shapeways.

It also means that everyone interested in jewelry design can finally start to consider making a living from their designs. SO COOL!!!

Yes it will be strong enough with a 5 mm wall. Even with the minimum wall of 2 mm it will be strong enough. Keep in mind though that FCS is kind of like ceramics, as in it will probably shatter if one were to drop it from about waist high.

If you cannot get Paul's method to work, I noticed in one of your posts that you use Blender. Blender can do it too with the solidify command.

Then again, I thought I saw you mention Zbrush. Zbrush can do it even with millions of polygons using the DynaMesh create shell command.

Well, you cannot do it in situ, but you can do it in such a way that it can be assembled. You'd just sprue the parts together, and then, upon receiving the order you would cut them apart and assemble them.

One good way of doing it would be to use the method used to make watch band hinges via stainless steel spring bars.

Hi! :D

Oh my gosh. Reminds me of the days when I first started doing digital sculpting. hehe :D This is good though! You learn fast when everything is going bad like this. Do you have Zbrush? I can show you how to fix this in Zbrush, but I don't know allot about Sculptris.

How about you send the file to me and we'll take it from there. Send it to me as an attachment through a personal message here on Shapeways, or if your file is huge, get a free Dropbox account, upload it there and then send me the link to it. Don't send me any of the ones you tried to fix. Send me the original one you saved after you thought you were done sculpting.

I can easily fix this. :)

Thank you so much for offering your help.
I think i have found how to fix it. I will try it today if it doesn't work quite well i will ask you.
Thank you again! ^_^

You need to mention the scale that you want to print in and the material as well. Then we can tell you if it will work or not. Or just give the general dimensions along with the wall thickness of the stairs and we can figure it out that way too.

Why print in one piece? I'd print it in parts and assemble it. Playing with LEGO as a kid should have taught you this skill well.

Your parts can only be ordered if they are available for sale. I think.

Having so much 3D content, it's only a matter of time until the Shapeways store will establish presence in the virtual reality universe. With both Oculus and Sony making so much noise preparing to migrate everyone to VR, I can realistically see myself browsing the store on my PS6 for a new pair of hiking boots to print.

I'm wondering if there's already such a project in progress, and if not, then perhaps setting up an open source project repository would get some developers interested. Just a suggestion!

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm available if you still need a bust sculptor. I prefer to work with a front/side image (to get the full depth of the person), but I can work with a single photo. I also do scaling, optimization and hollowing as a courtesy.

I can also do bas-reliefs (2.5D), which generally cost less to print.

Feel free to contact me at: mobiusdesigns@outlook.com

Hi Shapeways community!

This is my first post and my first foray into 3D printing. Although I have some experience with 3D modelling (3DS Max, Pro-Engineer) this was some 15 years ago. I had a look at SketchUp and it *seemed* a decent balance between cost and utility.

However, I'm now questioning my purchase of a Pro license and on the verge of applying for a refund.

The problem is that SketchUp is rather fast and loose with what it considers to be accurate geometry.

e.g. make one simple, solid component to then copy and arrange to build finished whole model (e.g. one corner of a model crate, then copy/transform/weld to make 7 new corners and final crate). First problem is that 'copies' have different volumes. Second problem is that trying to join these components causes surfaces to collapse, often on surfaces completely unrelated to the joining surfaces. Manually fixing the problems is like chasing a rabbit through a cornfield - the problem cascades form surface to surface, often unfix-able and I have to scrap everything and start from scratch.

These aren't models with complex, curved geometry either - no compound surfaces or the like - just straight edges.

So, I'd like to hear from others who have tried this software and whether they experience similar problems and whether there is a a preferred modelling software I could try instead.

I've attached a sample SketchUp project file to illustrate the problems I'm facing. Just try completing this crate by mirroring the existing component - I've tried deleting facing sides and manually welding and I've tried copy->flip->solid tools-> shell.

J.

Hi, We have zprint 650.
We'r useing VisiJet® PXL material.

After 3d print We get model with white side.
index.php?t=getfile&id=57750&private=0

When printer works from right to left, white side is showing on left side of model.

Can u tell me what Should we do to fix this problem ?

We did :
- auto alignment
- new material
- new heads
- witness part

everything is not working.

Check photo.

Ty for help.
