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.

Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

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."

The clever eye will see that the ring is a symbol of a woman :-)

I hope you find it interesting and will feature it!

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.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.

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!

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

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

This article is so fun to read, seriously we love it so much.

FabMe Jewelry is a great example of what happens when girl meets boy and both meet a 3D printer.

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to share a new pendant I made: Infinite Mother and Child.

I've been wanting to do something with the Infinity symbol for quite some time, but there were so many out there already. I love how deceptively simple it looks, so if I wanted to do anything more to it, it would also need to be simple.

The dots are meant to be the head of the mother and the child (mother embracing her child). I'm not sure how clear it is, but maybe people may like it because it's not clear at first?

My designs always begin with a life story.
Not long after a close friend completed his cancer treatments he confided that wearing a bit of ribbon just didn't cut it for him. The year fighting "the big C" had been tough and he thought something to commemorate his journey back to good health should be tougher than a ribbon. The I SURVIVED the Big C pendants are the results of that conversation. They are simple mementos to note the tough fought battles personally won against cancer. Originally, the first was made as a key fob, but they can also be worn as a pendant or, using a tie tack, as a pin.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Penta Beams is a geometric construction puzzle in the shape of a triangular pyramid, made of five pentagonal beams woven through each other. The object is to take the structure apart and put them back together again.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.

When a friend of mine started selling Origami Owl Living Lockets, I perused their collection of charms looking for something to represent breastfeeding. As a mother of two boys, breastfeeding was near and dear to my heart. Alas, there was nothing in their product inventory. But thanks to Shapeways and 3D printing (and the myriad of Blender and Shapeways tutorials out there), I was not bound by what charms other companies offer. I was empowered to make exactly what I wanted.

I was able to adapt the Public Domain International Symbol of Breastfeeding into a pendants as well as plates and charms for my Origami Owl locket. I've never been a huge jewelry wearer, but now I wear one of my printed items each and every day. My favorite parts-- when I nurse my infant and he looks up and plays with my pendant. Oh and proudly telling other moms, "Oh that? Yeah, I 3D printed that."

index.php?t=getfile&id=57995&private=0

With the cut off for Mother's Day orders coming up next week for Polished White Strong & Flexible, Polished Alumide, Black Strong & Flexible, and White Strong & Flexible, I thought it might be good timing to feature a cheap gift for the nursing mother. :)

Hi Shapeways fans,

Chain Cube is an old Oskar design, from 7 March 1983. The puzzle is a chain made of two types of links, namely straight and twisted. The object is to fold the puzzle into a cube. The original 1983 prototype was made in wood. The modern version is 3D-printed plastic.

Watch the YouTube video of the new 3D-printed version.
Watch the YouTube video of the original wooden prototype.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Check out the photos below. More photos here.

Enjoy!

Shapeways designer TreadshotA1 was first posting accessories and upgrade parts for action figures (mainly transformers), but they have been recently uploading some pretty wild fully transformable (and more importantly completely original) figures. These characters have ranged from robots that turn into cool science fiction vehicles to things like a traffic light. It's a pretty impressive evolution of a Shapeways designer:

Hi,

Just wanted to put forward my latest project forward. It combines 3D printing and Arduino electronics to create a mini repair bench from the Dead Space video game franchise.

Here's my "it arrived" post, hope you might consider it.

index.php?t=getfile&id=55744&private=0Hi,

I'd very much like to see my fascinators featured by shapeways. The Triple Crown races will be here before you know it and what's more fitting than the right hat? I know it's important to have a well-stocked shop, good photos, a professional look and videos. To this end, in the last couple of weeks, I've uploaded 3 new products, more photos and two videos. I'm open to specific suggestions on what I can do (or do differently and/or better) to improve my shop.

Here's the info about my hats:

1) They're both available in all the strong and flexible plastic colors and have been produced in black and white.

2) http://www.shapeways.com/model/1695383/my-cup-of-tea-fascina tor.html?li=shop-results&materialId=25

http://www.shapeways.com/model/1700217/the-kinetic-aesthetic -fascinator.html?li=more-from-shop&materialId=62

http://www.shapeways.com/shops/sloris

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tWygx0LwnI

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIcbV1PCaS0

3) My fascinators are special because of their unique design and the gap they fill in the shapeways catalog. I've seen 3D printed hats on the fashion runway, but when searching shapeways, I didn't find many models that are an actual wearable size.

I decided to design a hat because I grew up going to the Preakness every year. As many of my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins gathered as possible for this one event. One of my uncles lived in Maryland and we'd pile into his house to drink, eat and catch up with one another. When my uncle died of cancer in his mid-fifties, the tradition went with him. As an artist and designer, this is my own small way of keeping the spirit of that time alive.

The aesthetic inspiration for the fascinators came from the Victorian era and steampunk. My goal was to keep all the glamour of the old, but simplify it into something streamlined and daring that spoke of the future.

4) The comb on the 'My Cup of Tea' fascinator was not attached at the ideal spot to the tea cup, which was my design flaw. After a quick change, it printed perfectly. It was my first attempt at printing something fairly thin on a relatively large scale and I'm very impressed with the strength of the material.

One piece was missing from "The Kinetic Aesthetic' fascinator when it came out of the printer. Michon promptly emailed me and attached pics of the print and screen shots of where the design went wrong. When the file left me, it looked clean (it checked out in the netfabb analysis). When it opened there, it appeared to have a slight inconsistency at the point where one small piece attached to the body. Since it seemed to be a little bit of both our faults and just plain weird file stuff, Michon offered me a few options of how to proceed. I opted to take the print as is. I was very happy with her handling of the issue and even more thrilled when I held the product in my hand. The pieces twirled and bounced just as I had hoped! No complaints this time around, it gets easier to print with you guys all the time.

5) The 'My Cup of Tea' fascinator was inspired by the iconic steampunk top hat and the quintessential British tea cup. 'The Kinetic Aesthetic' was inspired by Calder's mobiles.

Thanks for your consideration,
M

This small accessory converts useless toilet paper roll into pencil holder. The product is a super light and stable desk accessory using minimum 3D printed polyamide material (strong and flexible) available in several colors.
How it works- simply plug the 3D corner piece inside the roll's base (it should have diameter of about 36-37mm.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Rob's Pyraminx was suggested at Rob Stegmann's puzzle website. When analyzing all twisty puzzles with a tetrahedral geometry, Rob found an edge-less pyraminx design that has not yet been implemented. Here it is. It has a Skewb mechanism inside, so the puzzle is a shape mod of the Skewb.

This puzzle is arguably the easiest non-trivial twisty puzzle :-). What is it's God's number?

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
