Hi,

I'm referencing the ImageBitmap section of the ShapeJS docs:

index.php?t=getfile&id=69977&private=0


My question:

In my ShapeJS code I have included two different image bitmap shapes args[0] and args[1 ]. Both image place is TOP.

My goal is to align both args 'back to back' and union them.

One args[1] model is rotated 180 degrees.

Unfortunately, when I run the script both args[0] and args[1] are centered at origin in the grid space and thus overlapping each other, like pic below:
index.php?t=getfile&id=69978&private=0

Is there any way to get both models to position 'back to back' instead of 'face to face'???


Thanks!

Gary

Final Design print has finally arrived! Looks great in polished metallic plastic. The facemask is still a little flimsy however, it will not be broken easily. However, all the important parts of the design are strong enough to open bottles! If you do not believe me check out my shop where videos will be posted by the end of the week of the bottle opener in use!

NOTE: Helmets with NFL logos are not for sale due to copyright laws. The models in my shop have the exact same design, dimensions, and functionality except for the logo.

Another beautiful pendant prototype that will be printed in a few different materials in the future. Feedback is much appreciated. Thanks again Shapeways.

Towards the very end of this video by Duann one can see that the color is maintained where he starts ripping the sample apart, so maybe if the thermoplastic had a low enough melting temperature it would work.






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. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.

At the start you can see color first fades / goes white in a dusty pattern, then full black and later grey in dusty pattern again. Visible too in the last flame, where the side lines disappear to white as the flame grows. Something is going on there.

Also it's not just about first day look, but how they look months later "A big drawback of HPs 'heating' system is that the heat affects many of the best dyes so the colours are generally less stable and fade quicker than Epson's" Maybe syntering would keep the look, but age them too much (two heatings).

FCP company is having serious issues with black or they want to resell the same thing "with big improvement, buy again!". FCS printers doesn't seem to have changed much in recent years, if at all.

BTW, http://www.figure.fm/en/post/46335/3D+printing+a+1+10+scale+ figure.html (and https://www.shapeways.com/model/190101/quot-santa-girl-quot- figure-full-color.html comment Dec 28th ^_^). Lots of work for a good result, as mkroeker said.

hi guys,

Still new to Shapeways and 3D printing, I am curious if the model generated from Wall Thickness Tool actually represents what I would get if I 3D printed it out? I see a lot of bumps in surfaces that's supposedly be smooth/flat.

Thanks in advance!

Regards
Mobius

Hi Mobius...

Assuming you asked the Shapeways site to fix your thin areas, I suspect those bumps on your flat areas are where the automatic fixes were (far) less than what you desired. The auto fixes work by sort of inflating the surface at a thin spot. In some cases this works well because it's in an area that won't be visible, but often it doesn't.

To further check, you could download the "fixed" model and import it into your modeling program for a look-see.

You'll probably get a better result by fixing the thinness yourself, in your normal workflow.

Good luck!

Here some books for the ones that think "I can`t draw" :

Perspective made easy - Ernest Norling http://books.google.ro/books/about/Perspective_Made_Easy.htm l?id=i0mdk7FvSzIC&redir_esc=y

Fundamental book for design.

It can be complemented with Andrew Loomis - Fun with a pencil https://archive.org/details/andrew-loomis-fun-with-a-pencil (internet archive)

... it takes 6 - 12 month to learn the basic drawing ability you need to be creative

@MrNibbles Nature it is "Public Domain" , works dated 100+ years are Public Domain , works of art 100+ years are Public Domain. You can use old books and stuff to inspire you , just not use 21 century works and not early 20 NOTE: ALL DATED +100 years from the DEATH OF AUTHOR

Like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci ... you get the idea ?

Copyright it is not forever , it is meant to protect the children of the author to have a income after parent death , and to give the author an income ... some author become known after death yet children got income the rights on the works ...

And expired patents.

So there it is not like there it is no way to make it legal , the option it is and it is no hard , to look in Human History. The problem it is combining 5-7-10 ideas in ONE to make an Original Product. Heh.... But that it is why you ask a price on it ? It is research work 98% , 1% drawing ,1% 3D modelling.

Why people see Copyright negative ? It is not!

Stealing it is negative and hurts the income of the employee and the author and hurts the economy in long run.

Example : If a singer publish an album , and he has no sale , that means he can`t afford to hire a "dancer girl" or "more" , that means no job for a girl that has no ability to do more than that , that means the artist has low income and low popularity , and that means artist quits doing what it is good at.
Not all musicians become rich , but yet at minimum success they can hire some like 3 people .... now due copyright stealing they can`t hire none.
The real motive behind ACTA and other papers.

Their support faq claims that you can write STL by checking an option box somewhere in a "Cut into slice" function supposedly in the Misc menu - does this not work for your purpose ? (First hit for an internet search on "jewelcad jcd stl")

This competition has ended. Unfortunately it was cancelled due to the number of participants being less than 10. A bit unexpected I must admit. Feel free to comment so I can gain experience from your inputs!
