About me: I worked as architect in Gensler London office since my graduation till 2009, and moved to Vancouver during the awful credit crunch. I worked as industrial designer for couple years. And recently I am travelling and working as freelance designer in mainland China, where I was born. I work mostly on character modelling and sculpture and jewelry design nowadays, as I can work on the go and solely myself.

Expertise: expertise in z-brush, rhino+matrix(jewelry design), and rendering of course.

Experience: 10 years designing and 3D modelling experience, still travelling and collecting inspirations everyday.

I just realized I could start to list some of my work on Shapeways, and offer some help to the others, also cover my travelling.

some of my recent works attached, this is is a character design and modelling from a old myth, job for a tourism museum

Hello all, Im a drafter by trade with a little modeling experience and like to tinker with models in my own time. While 3d printing is not new to me by any means, preparing my own models for print is.
Last night I received my part and was a little bummed when I realized that the faceting in the preview was not just a low quality preview, but how the part is actually modeled in the STL file.
Part was modeled in CATIA V5 with default settings (see printed part photo) and printed in white polished plastic.

This morning I went back in and found/adjusted settings as detailed as possible:
but its still not that smooth, a lot of facets are still present.
Ive seen so many example prints that are absolutely perfect with no visual faceting at the heck do I achieve this level of detail?

Are there more settings that Im missing, or is there a tool that I can load my STL file into and further smooth the geometry? Any help would be much appreciated =)

On Deviantart, at the gallery, I can feature arts in the main page. And I can manage art in folder, folder in folder, split topic...
I think it will be better, faster, easier to find products if we apply this feature to Shapeways.
The shop will be more professional.

index.php?t=getfile&id=113846&private=0Produced from a pencil sketch using the 2D to 3D grayscale interpreter then downloading the mesh into Blender and duplicating it and mirroring it so that it doesn't have a flat side. That is both sides are 3D printed raised surfaces. Doesn't look machine made I think.

Check out some of my jewelry designs. Hope you like it

Lion Ring (in Low Poly)



Ring 7




"As a young kid I remember that my father always liked to decorate all our cottages which have lived in with that kind of stone.

I like this kind of pattern also (It is a voronoi pattern actually) so I have deciced to design a ring with Karystos Stones which I am pretty sure that many of you will love It's simplicity and uniqueness."


You can find them in my shop here
