So, from the beginning of time, I've wanted a Legion of Superheroes flight ring. Well, okay, not that long, but since my teen years, maybe earlier. When Shapeways first started, I stated regularly looking for such a ring. I found designs I liked and bought a few in a variety of materials. I had one made of stainless steel which I had laboriously hand-sanded to a sweet satin finish. Then I lost it in Las Vegas. (Not lost as in losing a bet. Just misplaced it.)

Eventually, I realized that I needed to make my own. When polished brass became available, I knew it was time to start.

Alas, my artistic skill are next to non-existent. Luckily, there's OpenSCAD! After a lengthy learning period, I managed to make a nice looking Legion logo, based on my favorite renderings from the comics. I printed that out in steel and yellow plastic, as a proof of concept. The results were promising:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71309&private=0

With a good-looking logo ready, I needed to make the ring body. I printed out three different designs, taking advantage of the "Print It Anyway" option to test a variety of ways of dealing with some sharp edges. This also let me verify the sizing. I ended up choosing the one on the right:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71310&private=0

Meanwhile, I needed a way to add some sort of black inlay around the logo. Some Googling found me EFColor, an enamel powder that melts at a mere 300F. I had to order it from the UK. Once it arrived, I tried some red inlay on the steel test logo. My clumsy method was to sprinkle it all over the logo, then brush it off the face with a business card. Two applications of the powder do the trick, leaving a glossy smooth surface.:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71311&private=0

Having chosen a ring body from my yellow plastic tests, I ordered it in polished brass. With trembling hands, I opened the package, delighted with the quality of the result:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71312&private=0

Finally, I filled in around the logo with black powder. Some stray flecks remained on the face of the logo, but these were easily removed with a brass scraper:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71313&private=0

I am unreasonably giddy every time I look at it. If only it could actually make me fly!

The customizable lightning bolt bottle opener came about at my company's monthly Beer-O-Clock event. Everyone was always looking for a bottle open so myself and a co-working came up with the idea of creating an opener based on our departments lightning bolt logo. It can be personalize with a short name or initials and is a great gift for the holidays or special occasion. Thank you for considering the customizable lightning bolt bottle opener to be feature this for the holidays.

here is my fresh out of the printer fish bones pendant and it doesn't even smell. My Mum favourited it out of all my models (she likes to eat fish) Being a first mate on a sailboat we come across a lot of fishbones but none as nice and decorative as this one. I should ask the fishermen what they think of it. But your opinion is also very appreciated (always good to get some feedback)

The idea came when I saw a graffiti on some wall in an harbour and realized that it could actually look quite nice in the maritime section of my shop. Maybe in the near future I'll make a whole (uneaten) fish, so there would be a bit more choice.

Enjoy!

hi,

my 'old' gecko arrived yesterday in a new dress (i.e. material). Its super snug in your hand in stainless steel, which is about to become my favourite material. I spend a lot of time designing it but I am quite happy with the result. You can see more pics here: http://shpws.me/vkcp . I adore geckos as they are beautiful and useful (eating all the horrible mosquitoes). Thanks to shapeways who's done a great job. I hope you out there like it as much as I do.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Moby Maze is a mechanical maze based on a Mobius Strip. Half of the maze is at one side, the other half is, well, at the same side. The object is to remove the ring. It was originally prototyped by George Miller of PuzzlePalace.com. This version is made of 3D-printed metal.It is very strong, impossible to cheat. :D

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Non-Twisty Puzzles Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Hello everybody!

This is my first post in this forum, and I'm posting my first 3D Print ever.
As a self-taught designer, I loved the idea of 3D printing since the first time I heard about it, and when I first read about the existence of this awesome 3D printing community I was simply amazed.
With both of my parents being architects, I've always been familiar with Golden Ratio-based designs, which inspired me to create this pendant for my first ever 3D print.
After almost 4 weeks of waiting, I have finally received my 3D model. I will never forget the feeling of opening the little box and seeing for the first time an item that was originally conceived in your mind and brought to life from what started as a box primitive in 3DS Max.

Material: Stainless Steel

Here is the link to the product page: http://shpws.me/v0aw (It is still in Beta)
I hope you like it!
Feedback is welcome :D

I am very pleased with how my latest sculptural piece came out. It's called the Joi Konpurekkusu Torii (ジョイコンプレックス鳥居) and it's my whimsical interpretation of Torii that pays homage to traditional forms.

The goal behind this little sculpture is to request that those purchasing it use it as a traveling companion. I hope to see my little Torii posing in neat places all around the world!

Got them a week ago, they fit me perfectly.
Exquisite geometry, floating lens system and a unique bridge design that assures perfect balancing while wearing them.


The spacing between the two lens holder is exactly 4mm allowing for standard optical screws.
The nose clips are round and flat, allowing you to fit a small piece of cork for additional comfort.

I simply cannot wait to wear them.

I have just started doing cad design at the beginning of this year, and am so proud to be able to create and have my shapeways product sent to me so that I can see and hold it.
This ring was designed with my husband in mind...he is 6'6" and needed a manly ring. The rough texture on this ring is not enough to hurt or bother his fingers, but enough to give it a natural feel.

@elisarichardson The lucky heart pendant was inspired from an app I created for iOS called the Crystal Carousel of Magic Fortunes which you can download for free at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/free-crystal-carousel-magic/ id552608595?mt=8 . I raised the money to be able to build the app through a successful Kickstarter campaign which you can view at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/phits/crystal-carousel- of-magic-fortunes-universal-app-f . I am hoping to create more 3D Prints from the crystals within the Carousel of Magic Fortunes app. Shapeways did an incredible job printing the Lucky Heart Pendant and I got a great comment and photos from @embrick that I truly appreciate. Thank you for considering the Lucky Heart Pendant for Feature This and Feature This for Holiday!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Cold Fusion is a six-piece burr, but not a classic one. The pieces are helical and the puzzle is taken apart and put together by pushing the pieces in a helical motion. This version is made of metal.

Watch the YouTube video of the metal version.
Watch the YouTube video of the nylon version.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Buy a fully colored and assembled sample (limited edition) from PuzzleMaster.

I designed this ring based on one I'd had when I was very young. I inherited it from my mother and it was one of the first pieces of jewelry she was given after she immigrated to the United States from Cuba. Even though it stopped fitting pretty early on, I always kept it with me and wanted to find a way to keep wearing it.
Shapeways gave me an opportunity to design a new version of the ring that I can wear in pretty much any color I want! Being that the ring has interlocking pieces, it can't be printed in metal like the gold one I had as a child, but the plastic is lightweight and makes a nice accessory for pretty much any outfit!

Check out the ring here: http://shpws.me/vhvW

Also, I'm trying to come up with a new name for my shop, as I plan on adding some new products soon. Any suggestions are most welcome! <3 Thanks so much for reading!

Hallo

I would like to introduce to you my first product in my shop.
The Chaos pendant is a symbol that visualize the dependency of events based on the "Chaos Theory".
It is a study of mathematics and I intended to give it an elegant form which can hold its symbolical power.

I was inspired by the example, that the flapping of the wings of a butterfly in one place may later cause a hurricane in an other.
It can be also a symbol of emotions, events, influences that caused changes in the future. You name it : )

I hope you will like it and it could be featured on Shapeways.
The picture shows the pendant beautifully printed in Polished Brass.

Hi Shapeways Team,

The DIVA has entered the stage!

IBA12 - DIVA. The diva ring can be customized with your favorite snap-on 'attitudes' in the colors of your choice.

The first attitude available is the Urban Rose attitude. New attitudes will be added every now and then which allows you to have multiple-rings-in-one. You can even snap the attitude off again and change it to match your dress of the day. Just buy more attitudes with the ring.

"I was so excited when receiving the package from Shapeways. Due to printing tolerances, metal shrinkage and material differences, it was quite a challenge to make two items that would allow to snap-fit together and yet be able to come apart again. So when I held the two items in my hands and snap-fitted them together for the first time it felt really awesome."

"When creating the design I wanted to make a ring that could actually change its attitude, style and color. Yet, I wanted the ring to express a high quality standard by choosing the material to be Premium Silver and then combining it with a colorful material to add an interesting visual contrast. I have never seen such a ring before and the idea only came to my mind because I belive it fits perfectly with the whole concept behind shops on Shapeways."

Hi Shapeways fans,

Shift Happens is a meshing-gear puzzle in the same vein as Pentafold and Gear Fold. Bram Cohen wanted a set of six gears with an unequal number of teeth. After some discussion, he proposed the numbers 10-20-16-12-18-15. The initial idea was to have the gears in a triangle, but the gear set would not mesh that way. The alternative was a hexagonal pattern. As Pentafold and Gear Fold are rather floppy due to their hinges, Shift Happens uses a shifting mechanism similar to Gear Shift, but flat instead of spatial.

Watch the YouTube video.

index.php?t=getfile&id=63535&private=0 It is personally important that my artistic efforts are as original as possible. This item is the result of experimenting with my original 'solid' Hidden Hearts design.

Beginning some years ago and using Sketch Up, I had been working on a much larger use of the same basic Hidden Hearts form as an environmental sculpture (and I still hope to get that funded through Hatchfund.com.)

Anyway, somewhere in those long months of refining the design, researching materials and trying to pretend I was a mechanical engineer on the sculpture concept, I heard about Shapeways.

I thought: "Hmmm... the HH thing might work with this..." It took me many attempts and failures to finally get it to a satisfactory end product. So I was temporarily satisfied. And I sold a few. index.php?t=getfile&id=63540&private=0

But I couldn't leave it alone. So I worked and worked and came up with a ring. index.php?t=getfile&id=63537&private=0

Still not satisfied, I reworked the design and opened up the solid form. Doing that gave it more interest, more possibilities for seeing the heart illusion- plus rectangles, triangles and other things. It also cut back on the weight and cost of the piece. And I'm selling a few. And that's very encouraging. index.php?t=getfile&id=63538&private=0

So for now I can go back to the HH sculpture project- in the open style. index.php?t=getfile&id=63539&private=0 I would encourage others to consider making their successful Shapeways-sized items into super sized ones. It worked for Claes Oldenburg.

They just arrived today and they are phenomenal. A set of playing card holders for the board game Settlers of Catan. I recently got more into playing board games, and Catan has quickly become one of my favorites. One problem I kept having is who ever the dealer ends up being, the game slows down when they have to clean up the mess of cards that end up all over the place. I've seen card holders before, but nothing that fit with my new found love for the game.

So I made my own! For myself and anyone else who struggles with the same problem, I made a few versions for different budgets and needs. One where I took a few days to model all the icons for above each slot, as a visual aid to help distribute the cards more efficiently, another without the icons, as the icons ended up almost doubling the production cost, and finally a bare bones version that would just work enough to hold the decks in place.

Please take a moment to check them out:

Making these was extremely rewarding, and I plan to continue making things for board games as well as more jewelry and stuff for around the house. I hope to get some good feedback, and I'm completely open to anyones ideas or opinions.

So this is 'Rosey' the main character from a game I worked on. I got the full colour sandstone print done to use for promotional purposes. It's about 16.5cm tall, which is about the same size as Rosey is in the game, so I thought some garden photos of her in among the flowers etc. might make some good marketing material.
I have applied varnish and some acrylic paint to the model in order to get it ready for roughing it in the garden. In the first print her side locks broke off (first picture) so Shapeways kindly did a reprint which came out perfect. She's completely hollow so I've filled this particular model with a quick setting resin which has given her a nice weight now. I've included a couple of shots as well as a touched up promo shot at the end.

She makes a decent garden gnome actually.....................
Anyway, she's available here in case anyone's flowers need protecting. :)

This Universal Wall Dock Can be mounted to almost any flat surface by using Command's Wall Adhesives. By having a freestyle adjustment system, the possibilities of what this can dock is only limited by your imagination. Have a case on your phone? This dock can fit most light-medium cases creating a more snug fit. I even use this to dock my iPad Air!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Pancake Cube is a twisty 3x3x27 shaped to a cube. It is functionally similar to the WitEden 3x3x9, albeit with many more layers.

This small accessory allows photographers using the Fuji XF 18-55mm lens to take tripod-less panoramas. Panohood's handle turns the camera around the no-parallax point of the lens at 18mm focal length. To use, clip the Panohood to the shortest end of the hood.

I've just officially launched my new shop Illogical and, with it, have released five new models (with more soon to follow!). I think you guys will really like them and, just maybe, you'll help me promote my work. Check 'em out:

The first item is my Concentric Hexagons Pendant, shown here in Polished Gold Steel. It's a simple design based on concentric hexagonal forms.
https://images2.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_1623466_2776651_1399507103.jpg

Next we have the Revolved Reuleaux Triangle, shown in both Royal Blue and Coral Red Strong & Flexible. These small solids are really cool because, despite not being round, they can be rolled between two surfaces just like a sphere. This is thanks to them being the same width in every direction. Pretty cool, huh? Rolling a few of them around between a book and a table always mystifies and intrigues people.
https://images4.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_1487993_2776796_1399516906.jpg

Shown in Raw Brass, my Helix Pendant is based on the familiar form of DNA, simplified into an elegant pairing of metal ribbons.
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_1611197_2776652_1399507124.jpg

The Icosa-Octahedron, presented in matte black steel, is great as a keychain, a pendant, or just another desk toy. It features a wire representation of an octahedron encompassing an icosahedron, demonstrating their intersecting properties (the points of the icosahedron divide the edges of the octahedron into the golden ratio) while creating a complex and interesting form.
https://images3.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_1567227_2776675_1399517004.jpg

Finally, I present a Polished Gold Steel version of my Umbilica, a unique form that is similar to the classic Mobius Strip. The object, an umbilic torus, is a solid form whose sole edge loops around 3 times. In addition, a cross section of this object is another cool mathematical shape called a deltoid. Isn't math fun?
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/625x465_1565667_2776714_1399516971.jpg

Thanks for checking out my work!

My new pendant arrived, and I think it looks stunning in polished bronze so I thought I should share it!

I originally designed a larger pendant in steel, which was my first ever print, and is still available on my shop, but it was a bit big for everyday wear to work, so this is quite a bit smaller. For this one, I added a single twist, making it a mobius strip. It was prototyped in Black Detail, and then I took the plunge and printed it in polished bronze. Hope you like it! You can buy it on my shop at http://www.shapeways.com/shops/astosia
