Hi all,
this time I have a new design of kittens. Now as a pendant.
As you can see their tails make a nice shape of a heart, from that the name Kittens Heart.
I hope you'll like it.

The ''SpringiBit Screen Organizer'' is a simplified stationary organizer, equipped with springs and clamps, to keep all the absolutely essential supplies right next to your computer screen.
The need for such an item was evident because of my daily office experience with computer screens covered by post-it notes and desks occupied with roaming pens and pencils.

Well I've learned a lot about texture mapping sandstone with this model. Use textures for applying color and not for adding detail. If I was to make another version of this model I'd add some polygons for door handles, hinges, wipers, gas filler and maybe even door shut lines. I'm happy with it as it though.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Combo Cube was suggested by Alex Polonsky. It combines the twisting of Rubik's Cube with the sliding of Peter's Black Hole.

As Combo Cube did not slide too well, I made Slide Along with bigger cubies and no twisting.

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

My latest ring arrived the other day and this is the first attempt at setting a stone, a 3.5mm Fire Citrine. A pendant also arrived at the same time in a separate package; both were in the flat cardboard envelopes I've seen Shapeways use before, rather than the usual box. I would prefer that Shapeways NOT use packaging like this again. Both envelopes were so crushed that the embossed jewellery boxes inside were completely flattened; the pendant had minor scratching but this ring suffered the most. The band was slightly askew and a couple of the prongs (very delicate) were a little bent. Nothing that I couldn't fix in my studio but I would hate for a customer to have received that.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Slide Along is a variation to the classic Sliding 2x2x2 puzzle. However, this version has no cage. Instead there are a spider-like core and seven highly irregular sliding cubie pieces.

Hi, I've received this work about a month ago, didn't have time yet to show it. Here it comes : a Watch Band Buckle

Velcro watch band tip will lose stickiness as it ages, and then scratch anything it encounters. This buckle is used to cap the band tip, keeping it from scratching your cuffs of sleeves, especially in winter days. The name " Ning " is embossed on a pattern called BingLie (Chinese, means Cracking Ice), a pattern that was used as a window style some 600 years ago in China. Yes, I'm bringing antique fashion back into life again.

This is the 3rd shipment of the work. I was so excited when it finally works.

Same design, different format - this one's for the guys (and dapper ladies).

Based on the logo for Marvel's 2012 film "The Avengers", a lapel pin to show your support for Earth's mightiest heroes! Ring measures 1.5" (38.1 mm) in diameter. Rear-mounted clip should fit most jackets.

Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles 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. PuzzleMaster is now selling a limited-edition version of this puzzle (produced by Shapeways, fully dyed and assembled) for only $29.99 (Canadian dollars).

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at PuzzleMaster.

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Good Neighbours Cube is a Rubik's Cube, in which each center piece has an internal lip that sticks out, and can bump into that of the neighbouring center. Like good neighbours, one has to let pass the other. This means that some turns are blocked, like with Adam Cowan's Nightmare Cube.

Watch the YouTube video.

They're based (as the title would suggest) on M. C. Escher's Angels and Devils tessellation. Recreating the tessellation was the easy part. Warping it into a sphere was an ordeal.

http://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_567206_535155_1345468870.jpg

Technically these arrived a while ago but it took some time to get them ready.

First of all, I didn't want to make the loops too thin since I was printing them in Full Color Sandstone so they couldn't fasten the earring hooks to them before shipping. I even got an email asking if I really wanted them included. I, of course, said "yes" so that I could sort out a solution to the problem and they were mailed to me separately.

After they arrived I noticed a tiny, tiny chip was missing from one of the devils, so I decided the whole thing needed some protection and gave them a spray one clear coat so now they're shiny and chip resistant.

Finally I managed to get some bails to connect the hooks to the earrings that I thought fit them. Even then I couldn't get the darn things to bend completely closed and stay that way, so I closed the gaps with just a li~itle bit of super glue.

I'm quite happy with how they've turned out.

Just got the Jaguars D Type, Long and Short nose versions, from TDR.

*AMAZING!*

Specially the 1/43 in high definition, its absolutely perfect. I will have very little work to paint them.

And now I'm really mad at me because I ordered the 1/24 versions in low definition... stupid! stupid! While they are good, I will have a lot of careful sanding to do before they are ready to paint.


Now I'm going back there to order other TDR cars... Hope they make others really soon!

The shape is half a dodecahedron (the Platonic twelve sided solid) with small legs so that you can make a complete dodecahedron with two parts, and you can stack several dodecahedra! Watch out: the stack is not very stable though! Very Happy

Check more pictures in the product page.

This model is quite small and so relatively inexpensive: a good way to try Ceramics I guess... Wink

I wanted to make something that I could attach my guitar picks to without having to damage my guitar in anyway.

I designed a clip that slides onto one's guitar strap. On the outside the clip includes a slot that allows three picks to be inserted and easily available when needed.

I recently updated the design so that the pick clip faces the same direction as the clip. I also included three, seperate "clip" areas to allow for different thickness of picks and more hold.

After a few issues with printing my Celtic inspired Heart ring arrived today!

It is a Cuff style ring which was an attempt at making it able to be bent slightly for different sized fingers. I have another version made that is an enclosed ring with six hearts i will be test printing soon to see it it eliminates some warping that occurs in polishing.

My second attempt at printing. I learned from my mistakes with the first batch and made the wings thicker this time so they wouldn't get bent in transit. However they were still slightly bent. So I soaked the models in hot water to soften them and managed to straighten out the wings myself.

The planes are 9cm long, printed with white high-detail. They're painted with citadel acrylics.

I have a 16-month-old son, and I FaceTime with him during lunch each day. I got tired of trying to prop my phone up on books, so I made a stand for it. I was inspired by the geometry of molecules when designing the stand.

I haven't ordered from Shapeways in about 6 months, and it was really satisfying to receive something again!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Variomatic Cube is a twisty puzzle with gears. All three pairs of opposing faces are connected by gears. And they are not just some gears, they are gears with a varying gear ratio. Some sometimes, opposing gears will turn with a 1:1 gearing ratio, some with a 1:2 ratio, and sometimes with a 2:1 ratio. The operation of the variable-ratio gears is explained and illustrated here and here. Watch a demo of the inner gearing mechanism here.

The name of this puzzle is a tribute to the variomatic transmission system by the Dutch car manufacturer DAF. Note that the variable-gear-ratio mechanism is very different from the DAF variometic system.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Variomatic Cube Demo is the third of three experiments with non-circular gears. This puzzling mechanism is a demo model to show how the Variomatic Cube works. The mechanism has four identical gears meshing with each other. The gearing ratio of the gear train varies from 1:1 to 1:2 and 2:1.

I wanted to create a fun charm to be used with my Phiten necklace and decided a bow tie fit. This was my first attempt and I am very happy with the outcome.

The clips work perfect and I am happy with the way in which the charm orients with the Phiten clips.

The texture of the material (black strong and flexible) almost gives it a velvet feel like a real bow tie.

Hope to make different sizes and attachments soon.

Hi Shapies,

After playing around with the (Cage Edit Tool in Rhino), I was able to morph the straignt lines to create some ripples. What started as a simple opening, resulted in the 3D optical illusion. This feature is the only modified aspect of this phone case, while the rest of the architecture remains the same as the one of my earlier cases. Such designs offers a perfect fit for your phone, which I have tested for several months.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Double Variomatic is the second of three experiments with non-circular gears. It has two pairs identical gears with a varying gear ratio. When turning, at first the top square turns 90 degrees together with the bottom square. But then they start to diverge, with one square turning 90 degrees and the other 180 degrees. This local 1:2 gearing ratio is achieved by cascading two 1:sqrt(2) gear sections. Actually, that is not entirely true.The gearing ratio is continuously varying, and the 1:sqrt(2) ratio is only an average. Similarly, overall gearing ratio is 1:1 at average. After one full turn, both squares are back to start.
