Vijay resized and adapted some files for me to be able to use them for miniature models. And he was a great help when Shapeways wanted some of my older files re-done because they ran into printing problems.
Fast... reliable... fair price.

Can I change the size of my model once I load it into shapeways? I had someone design my piece, and I asked for it to be 5inches wide, the file uploaded to shapeways and it is only 2inches wide. I do not know if its a problem with the file or if I can easily change the dimensions in shapeways? HELP! Also the only programs I have to edit 3D in is photoshop cs6. Ugh.

Hi everyone, got a chance to take some photos of my new Weird Little Guys today.
There's four in this set- an ice dragon, a hippogriff, a hippopotamus and a unicorn. Designed with the help of my girlfriends nieces I think they came out pretty well apart from the unicorn= he looks a bit blurred. The contrast between the light and dark was pretty high on the original so I'm not sure why it looks so fuzzy- maybe it's just because unicorns shouldn't be gazed upon?



Any suggestions on how to reduce the blur on the unicorn print gratefully received!

I just received my iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S Macro Lens ( and it takes great pictures. @Lenshop did a great job with pointing me to where I could buy the lens to use with this product. I updated many of my photos on my store at . I highly recommend this product for someone on a budget who would like to take great pictures.

Today I received a couple of eggish shaped ornament shells. I need to figure out if I should leave them as is, polish them, or maybe coat them with a clearcoat. The colors are close to what I wanted but slightly muted like all color prints seem to be. These have no hint of warping probably because of the shape.

This guy has color disks separated by small grooves so its similar to the first test piece I did for lathe tests &start=74&

Any slight groove seems to grow because of plastic shrinkage so it's not a good idea to do this. On the other hand it is lathe-able but I would be afraid of revealing any white material within the cores of the disks. Photos as taken from the shipping bags.


The second is smooth and has more potential. No nasty grooves and nice color transitions.




These might look good illuminated from within. More photos as progress pregresses!
