Howdy all, I am needing a little help getting my models out of Maya and print ready. These chairs are intended to be used as Wedding Cake toppers, so I would like them only to be about 3.5-4 inches tall. I am also a little lost in regards to the best practice for shelling the two models.

Here is a preview of the chairs.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v611/agentjosh77/Chairs_Preview_zpskaftivvx.jpg

Any advice would be wonderful. I exported each chair as an OBJ but the model preview in the Shapeways webapp was pretty broken. I have attached the Maya file if anyone would like to review the file.

Thank you all! I appreciate the assistance!

Hello everyone,

Let me start by saying I am a complete noob when it comes to the world of 3D printing and everything that goes with it. So bare with me as I write this post. Recently, I acquired these two cards games and these two particular games the cards all but make the games so to be safe I put all the cards in rigid card sleeves. As a result neither game's cards will fit in their respective boxes anymore. So I decided that since both games come from the same made up universe why not design a box to put them in and get that box printed.

Well so far I've designed the box base (22" L x 14" W x 3.5" H) the way I would like it. Haven't designed the lid for it yet but I'm not worried about that at the moment. I just want to get my basic idea out there first to see what others think. Biggest question I have is if this can even be 3D printed. If it can't what can I do to make it 3D printable. If it can be 3D printed would it be able to hold the weight of the cards without falling apart.

Couple of things about this box. Except for the holes where the cards will go and the indents for the text everything else is filled in. Question is, should it be? Every hole is designed to fit the cards EXACTLY as in no wiggle room. These holes range anywhere from 1/4" to 2.4375". Question is how exact is 3D printing? If my box could be printing I would want the cards to fit nice and snug but I don't the box design to be so exact that during printing it is off by a little bit and the cards then won't fit. At the same time I don't want the spaces to have so much extra room that the cards end moving around or not staying up straight.

Between each hole is a 1" space for the labels. The labels are each indented 0.1". Wasn't sure how much of an indent to use so I just went with 0.1". Just because I thought it should be there (and to give me space to add holes or connectors for a lid) I have a 3/4" space around the entire box.

I also have a 1" space on the bottom between the bottoms of the holes and the bottom of the box.

If you need other measures I can provide them.

I created this whole thing using SketchUp 2015 (The free version) because this was the first thing I found I could use.

I guess some basic questions would be: What are the size dimension limits on 3D printed objects? Does my box exceed those limits? If so, how could I modify my box so that it could be 3D printed? How much would a box like this cost to be 3D printed? What could I do to reduce that cost without reducing the integrity of the design? Assuming I choose plastic as my printing material what then are my color choices? Do I have a limited palette or a huge range of millions of colors to pick from?

Again I am total noob when it comes to 3D printing and this was the first forum I found that hopefully can help guide me in what my next steps are.

I've attached (hopefully) a picture of my design to give you an idea of what I'm thinking. If you need other info or files, let me know.

I was asked y a customer to make a D36 numbered from 0 to 35.
I took this opportunity to also release de D36 numbered from 1 to 36.
The shape is base on a cube for which each one of the 6 faces is divided into 6 in a balanced way (and 6 x 6 = 36). This subdivision gives the initial position of the faces of the truncated sphere die : 36 circles on a sphere. This rough shape is then refined so that each face is as large as possible.
Here are the underlying 36-sided polyhedron and the truncated sphere shape obtained by intersecting the previous one with a sphere of the appropriate diameter (this operation insures that all the faces have the same area):
index.php?t=getfile&id=89571&private=0
Regarding the numbering, I worked hard with my customer to get also a kind of balance. For the die numbered from 1 to 36, we wanted each group of 6 numbers (located on the faces of the underlying cube) to feature either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 exactly as a 6-sided die (with the group with 1 opposed to the group with 6 etc.), and those 6 numbers of each group to sum up to 111 (since the global sum of all the numbers is 666, the number of the beast). And of course, we wanted the numbers of opposite faces to sum up to 37.
After believing a long time it was impossible, we come up with an elegant solution.
Here is the result:
index.php?t=getfile&id=89569&private=0
And this is a rendering where you can see better the group of 6 numbers belonging to the faces of the underlying cube:
index.php?t=getfile&id=89570&private=0
You can see for instance that 1+10+17+23+29+31 = 111.

I am currently working to have also a numbering of the D50 with numbers on opposite face summing to 51 (currently it is numbered so that the difference between numbers on opposite faces is always 25, that is 1 is opposed to 26, 2 is opposed to 27 etc. and 25 is opposed to 50).

Hello, new to Shapeways. Any feedback on this model before I get into rigging? The Dino is meant as a miniature and will be on a leash of some kind. Thinking I am going for pre-history (no metal). I want to print in multi-color.

Any and all thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey guys! I just finished my first design, but I'm hesitant to place my first prototype order without some review from people who actually know what they're doing! My plan is to make a silicone type coaster or dinner placemat and this is the first of many designs. It could also be adapted pretty easily into jewelry with some size adjustment. What do you think?? How can I improve it?

Here's my entry for the Extend the Function iPhone 6 Design Contest, Yes, I'm a couple of months late! HAHAHA! :D Well, that's because this wasn't easy! :D It took a long time for me to think it out. :D This is about the 15th major iteration change. What's hard is, getting it to fit on the back and also fold out large enough so that it can properly support the weight of the phone.

What is it exactly? This is an iPhone 6 case that has a permanently attached quadropod that unfolds for use and folds back up on the case when not in use. When in the unfolded state the quadropod allows forward and back tilting 180 degrees and right to left tilting 360 degrees. It also serves as an adjustable selfie stick by not unfolding the legs completely.

I'm sure I'll want to make more changes once I get the tangible version in my hands in Strong & Flexible, so I'm posting this as a work in progress.

I am scanning my wife's sculptures using 123DCatch or other software that takes a bunch of 2-D photos and makes a 3-D model.

Doing it using a still camera is time-consuming. Then I thought, what about a VIDEO camera? It takes 30 frames per second, and you would just pick the "good frames" that you want to put in. The photography could be done pretty quickly.

However, what do I look for in a video camera that could do this well? I need something that can get tack-sharp focus quickly as I walk around the sculpture, and has decent resolution.

Hi there,

I am currently working on a new generation of Shell Dice.
The Shell Dice are Truncated Sphere dice for which no number is located on faces and thus where faces can be removed by making them hollow (keeping only the rounded part of the shell). There particularly well suited for metal (sturdy shape, affordable price, good weight). The D4 in particular is really popular.
When I initially designed them, I begun with the D4, then the D6, the D8 and the D3, but while doing the D12 I felt the need to change a little bit the design to make the edges rounded (more consistent shapes). That's how the second generation was born.
I also did a D3 Fudge (asked by a customer) and I still need to work on the D20: I have some ideas for it, but I am not totally convinced yet.
Here is the complete collection (to date):
- D3 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D3 Fudge Shell dice - Gen 2
- D4 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D6 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D8 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D12 Shell dice - Gen 2
And two pictures (D4 and D12):

Here's one of my late night musings - an interesting way to hold my camera lens cap while I'm taking pictures.
It would slide onto the camera strap, and allow the lens cap to snap in just like it does on the camera.

What do you all think? Flashy enough? Is the pattern okay?

Hello guys.

I'm a witcher fan and as I saw the new design for the Witcher Medallion for the upcoming game I just had to build my own version for 3D printing!
The test-print (polished metallic plastic) still takes ~10 day until arrival.
So I'm sharing some 3D renders and a turntable for now.
Although it's still in the "Demo"-Phase the model should already be fully functional ready for printing.

I've got a dreidel here I have been working on and I would like to get some feed back on the design. It's posted as a Beta here http://shpws.me/xSf3.
Let me know what you think, Thanks.

I'm a huge fan of Namio Harukawa's work so naturally I decided to open a shop selling amazon women crushing men. This first model I've released is inspired by one of my favourite pictures of his and I thought of it as not being too graphic like some of Namio's work is. It's a good balance between being ornamental and suggestive so you could stick it in the living room. I do intend to release some more brutal facesitting models in future though! Feedback and questions are welcome.

Hi guys!

We're developing a 3D printed robotic arm maker kit and we'd love to hear what you guys think of it

http://makerclub.org/app/uploads/2014/10/web_grabber_2.jpg

We've got a cool timelapse video of the build here.
http://makerclub.org/?p=767

It will come with a full set of of instructions and a gameified learning platform that teaches you how to make your kit and engages you with some of the science behind the electronics. The arm is controllable from your smartphone with our special Maker Connect chip.

We've got an IndieGoGo campaign launching pretty soon (you can read about that here), so any input is greatly appreciated!

What would you like to see on a robot arm? What kind of attachments would you like?

Just an FYI we switched from a RepRapPro to an Ultimaker 2 and our build quality has shot up.

Thanks guys, glad to become a part of your community
Ben @ Maker Club

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my current work in progress: a 3D printed safety razor! I am going to call it the Genisys, because it was first and I like to spell things differently. The current itteration is quite aggressive, so I definitely will be trying to dial that back a bit. So without further adiu, https://www.shapeways.com/model/2623152/genisys-safety-razor .html

I'm building a variant of the robohand prosthetic for a 7 year old girl called Hollie. Unlike other robohand and E-nable Hands I'm pushing several technology fronts at once. The main one being that it is based upon scans of her actual hands. The full hand being mirrored over to form the fingers and palm of her new Robohand.

The second feature is that I'm incorporating elastic elements into finger hinges. I'm doing this by using the elastic properties of the sintered nylon (strong and flexible) material. This is similar to the flexy hand design except using only the single material.

http://thingiverse-production.s3.amazonaws.com/renders/14/8e/95/5c/0d/20141015_210121_preview_featured.jpg

The third feature is that this is all done using Shapeways materials. I haven't seen this done by anyone else (or even an SLS printed hand, for that matter). Hopefully this will give me a nice uniformity that I couldn't get with FDM (reprap, makerbot style) Printers.

More details will can be found Here with more details of the next stages to be released soon.

Here's Hollie trying out the arm.

This Animatronic Understructure is designed to be used as a generic mechanical mannequin.

Hey Guys,

Just got this print and put it together, I had to take a dremel to some of the areas around the points because I made them too tight, but otherwise its a solid fit.

Any suggestions for going about painting?

I have had a Venus of Willendorf model for sale for a while now - got a few favourites, sold a couple. So I decided to make a slightly smaller version with a loop so it can be worn as a pendant. For Mother Goddess worshippers and the like. Not such a good advert for Paleo diet devotees though.

Hi Everyone

We are new to these forums but we are loving our Shapeways experience and the great community that exists here.

We have designed an iPhone 6/6s stand that we call 'Vector'. it literally just clips on your keyring, or any place where it can hook around so its light, portable and very handy when traveling, in class, at work, or anywhere that you need to stand your iPhone up.

We wanted to challenge ourselves with 3D printing in mind, be different from what traditional manufacturing dicates, and came up with simplified geometric shapes and minimalistic curves. The result was two functional separate bodies which meet together seamlessly when mated. Also designed in mind is the multiple color options, which when mixed give an accent to the overall design, be it in one's favorite sport, corporate, school, team, or national colors.

We hope you guys like it. The images are renders as we are awaiting our first prototype but if all goes well and it works as designed, we think it will be a great lightweight accessory.

sorry for the bad pictures, but real real cool about design.
if you look at the size of the out reaching arm holding the fish.
and the look at the size of the fish. anybody that's does any sandstone color knows,
it was impossible to have that much weight out reached without any support ,it would breaking in final stage of wet to dry.
keep your eye on that,

Hello all,

You perhaps have seen my Multiplicator.
I am currently working on a smaller version specially designed for kids.
This version is smaller but also more affordable (less than $50 instead of more than $100).
It can help to learn the multiplication table. I contains only the numbers featuring into the table of Pythagoras.
All has been simplified for kids:
- it look like a toy (I wanted to call it the Toydatkankount)
- only half of the cylinders are used: this avoids strange things that usually appear with logarithm tables like 4x5=2 because there is no distinction between 2 and 20.
- no number is omitted they are all written (no need to count the lines, just follow them).
- the number (and the lines) are colorful and they have been colored is an interesting way: for instance, 2 is blue 5 is yellow thus their product 10 is green, a color obtained by mixing blue and yellow. The colors I selected are blue for 2, red for 3, yellow for 5 and grey for 7.

index.php?t=getfile&id=69739&private=0

What do you think? Can this work with kids?

I know some parts are really crowded with numbers, but I wanted all the numbers of the multiplication table (and only them) to be written explicitly. Furthermore, the number are really small (2.5mm high if I remember well). I hope this will be readable.
The wheels are 4 mm thick (except where pegs are inserted (2mm only). I could reduce the price further by reducing the thickness to 3 or perhaps even 2 mm (I don't know it the ring making the wheel is considered as a supported wall or not).
Later, I will do another image for the numbers to have a "classic edition" (featuring all the numbers between 1 and 100, of course this time some of them being represented by a simple line).

Here are the two parts:
- Wheels
- Gears and Axes

Comments and suggestions welcome...
