I wish there was templates for Blender for bottle-corks that fits PET-bottles.
Someone said that there are templates for that sort of stuff within the plastics industry (but probably for autoCAD)

I have some neat ideas for a couple of gadgets that i would like to be able to incorporate with the function of closing a PET-soda-bottle:
Tripod for a small digital camera
( uct/bottle-cap-tripod-1/?tstmp=1249206688 )

Pick-Nick-Tray, that can be used to carry your lunch on top of the bottle (or a low & small side-table for 3-4 PET-bottles)

Holder for straw, that can be cool if combined with a figurine á la Manneken Pis ( )


What other everyday objects could be put in the 3D-parts database to make cool things out of???

Hi all,,

i making a model, and just to test before i continue working on it, i checked if it was upload able.

both Accutrans (watertight) and Meshlab (remove manifold thing) said that it was watertight and that there is nothing to remove (no manifolds error)

but still i get a manifold error on shapeways,

could some1 do a quick check?

i think i found the problem, the object was just to small (scaled it to much Very Happy

No matter what I do, I can't fix the normals in my project. I have a very limited idea of what they are. I've inverted the polygons from text that I Boolean differenced, and inverted the polygons from the hollow middle. I have no Idea what to do next.

I'm trying to export a level-4 Menger Sponge I've created in solidworks, but when I try and un-suppress more than one extruded-cut at once, the whole program grinds to a halt as it tries to render the preview. Is there a way to disable the view entirely, in order for me to un-suppress all the cuts at once and thus export the STL?

(For those interested,
Parts 1 & 2 of this tutorial
can be found on my blog
CAD Craft.)

In Part 2, I walked us thru the steps of creating configurations in SolidWorks, and some keys regarding how dimensions in a sketch, features in a part and even parts in an assembly can be managed & coordinated in the creation and articulation of configurations. I have attached an STEP AP214 version of the Gear Drive Assembly in a Zipfile for those who would like to interrogate the model. (Unfortunately, while STEP captures the parts in the assembly, it does not reflect the configuration options within a SolidWorks model when you open it in SolidWorks. I also uploaded an STL of the assembly to the gallery for the community to peruse.)

To conserve space, see Part 1
for a discussion of the definition, advantages and implementations of configurations
in design & manufacturing.

At this stage, we're ready to engage the concepts & principles of modular design -- its advantages, and how it helps to more effectively leverage one's resources.

Modular design can be very empowering as an approach, on a lot of levels. When you're doing designs in CAD or Second Life, the capacity to organize your parts and components such that they can be re-used in many different arrangements & assemblies keeps costs -- materials, inventory, time/energy/effort -- as minimal as possible. This comes into play in at least a few areas:

• Scale -- A part or component may be proportionally the same in the design of its features, such as a hexagonal plate. If you realize that you can use this same detailed design in an assembly as a piece of jewelry, as a piece of furniture and a building as well, then you recognize that the similarity of the parts is fundamental, whereas the difference is a function of scale. Yantras are a cultural example of this which addresses design in a transcendent context. Yantras can be flat, like a drawing, or 3D -- like the 12th image -- in many sizes or scales, such as a building, furniture or a piece of jewelry you could wear around your neck. It's also worth mentioning that this consideration -- in tandem with pattern propogation -- flirts with the fringes of the idea and implementation of fractals in design.

• Size/dimension -- A bolt or screw is a good example here. These items have a series of common parameters: diameter, length, pitch or density(threads @ inch), material, etc. So, for a bolt of the same diameter, say 1/4 inch, the same pitch, say 20 threads @ inch, the thing which sets each apart bolt from the others is the length of the screw, and/or the length of the threaded portion of the bolt.

• Features -- The bolt or screw may be the same diameter, the same length, the same density, even the same threaded length. However, they may differ by the type of head they have -- hex head, phillips, slot, socket, etc. They are the same screws or bolts, except for this difference.

Configurations engage this aspect by allowing you to take a single model, say of a bolt, and make many iterations or versions of it within the same file. This way you can have one file which represents a single bolt or screw in 20 different sizes &/or configurations. When you pull that part into an assembly, you can bring up a dialog which allows you to specify the configuration for that particular iteration in the assembly. You may use the same model file many many times, yet most can be different based on the configuration used. This allows for a much more compact file library, and is the basis of the Toolbox feature in SolidWorks.

Similarly, modular design empowers you to create designs which may be largely similar in overall envelope(dimensions), yet have some features which are distinct. By varying the combination of components which go into a given assembly, you end up with many different versions of essentially the same thing.

Consider, for instance, that when you go to buy a car, you want one with your preference of features, chosen from a broad list of possibilities. However, the chassis, majority of body panels, steering wheel, perhaps even seats are identical to every other copy of that model, yet yours feels unique to you because of your combination of options.

To take this a step further, some of you know, for instance, that the chassis, and in some cases even the engine, drive train and other primary components of the Chevy Camaro and the Pontiac Trans Am were the same. Yet, 'Chevy guys' and 'Pontiac guys' would argue and race like they were totally different. This is modular design in practice, and you can see how it saved a great deal of money for General Motors while generating definitive branding, brand loyalty and prestige, not to mention significant profits, simply because most folks did not look any deeper than the skin -- the molded sheet metal -- to make their judgments, and we know how foolish this can be.

Hey All,

I'm excited to share a little preview of some changes we're making to the Community homepage.

Currently we have a page that tells you how to get involved in the community but static. that isn't very useful after you've seen it once.

Our amazing design team is working to bring this page to life with new dynamic content. You'll be able to see the most active forum threads and sections along with upcoming events and news about the community.


This is still a work in progress so if you have ideas or suggestions let us know!

Hi everyone,

Shapeways has been a fantastic find for me! Great pricing, quick service, and quality 3d printed parts. I wish I had found them when I first started prototyping. Would have saved me a lot of money and time.

I am now ready to look into Injection Molding. Rather than sorting through a bunch of companies, I figured some of you may have suggestions. I don't want to make the same mistakes as before. Any great companies you have worked with in the past? Did they offer fair pricing? Where were they located? Was the final cost very close to their original quote? Were you happy with the quality, service and so forth?

I have talked to a couple companies like icomold and quickparts. I have a few friends who know of companies in China. Figured I would ask Shapeways customers while I am at it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

My name is Tobias and I am working on a project on consumer trends in 3D printing as part of my studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.

For this, I am interested in people who have engaged with 3D printing themselves and thought you might be interested in filling in our brief survey, which should take no more than 5 minutes of your time.

I really appreciate your time and your input would help me a lot to understand trends in and perceptions of 3D printing better.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to ask.
Also, if you are interested in the outcomes of our research just indicate your interest and I will send you a copy of the report once it is finished. All personal information will be treated confidentially and deleted after the project is completed.

Thanks again for your help!

The latest thing developed by Carbon 3D is in a way opposite to the traditional layering process and resembles a lot the SLA printing and the similarity is that the printed object grows from a pool of liquid resin.
But how does it happen and what are the advantages of this method called CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production)? The central part is played by the photosensitive resin. It reacts to ultraviolet light (UV) and oxygen. The result is amazing and so is the process itself as the print emerges from the pool of liquid like in a sci-fi movie.

One of the persons responsible for the new technique is Professor Joseph De Simone who is also Carbon 3D's Chief Executive Officer. The method the company has developed has made 3D printing much faster - a plastic ball from a video they have launched is ready in just ten minutes instead of ten hours with the traditional 3D printing technologies. And the professor is right that there are actually mushrooms that grow faster than a print becomes complete by the conventional 3D printing - in his words - "2D printing over and over again".

Besides the speed which is enough advantage alone, the new method results in much stronger prints due to the lack of weak areas resulting from layering.

3D printing has brought many improvements to industries and has found countless applications even in its traditional slow and not that high-quality ways. But imagine how far this technology can go with the method developed by Carbon 3D. Custom made parts for cars and machines as well as orthodontic stents can be ordered and delivered as fast as buying conventional ones directly from your local store.

Add to this new method the innovative materials developed by the company that will break the limitations of polymer based materials used in traditional 3D printing and you will get the perfect universal machine that can print anything. And the possibilities for its application are endless.

As you know many designers have been helping me on a project in N-scale or 1:160 scale.
Building a 100 flatcar Military train Since January when I got handed this project for this up coming Christmas Live Show in 2015. So give me a year to put this massive train in N-scale together.
We using this website which has the best list for Modern U.S. Military Vehicles and support equipment. _States_military_land_vehicles
Also youtube looking at different videos of military flat car loads.
So like to give s big thank you to following designers so far. Plus feel free to buy some there designs for yourself. Awesome work All.

That it as far as ones that been posting on shapeways I like to say thank you for your support.
So never to late post something If your a designer who got a storefront on shapeway or new upcoming designer. let me know. I'll buy a few . Plus I believe others will too. People are all way looking for items in N-scale. Eaither for model railroading or 10mm war gaming.
If you like to learn more or follow the progress. Join over at facebook look for Meadowbrook church model Model railroaders group.
Plus learn more items we are interested in. Also come April I will be doing a class about 3d printing and shapeways. Interested in attending contact us.
Learn how Shapways, 3d printing is shaping the new way for model railroaders.
Also there another military train in Ho scale being built to honor those from ww2
Have nice day and again Thank you designers for the support Hope to see new items soon. Still got long list to go. to reach 100 flatcars loads.
God Bless

I was inspired with the gigantic impact of the phrase: "Je Suis Charlie"
Wouldn't it be great if 3d printed object could keep this "alive".
With that in mind I designed a couple of items of which I'll donate all the profit they make to the red cross for children in a areas around the world.

I know this is NOT the appropriate place to post this, but forwarding or twitter the link is for free and wouldn't it be great if we could support charity by designing 3d?

I was wondering if anyone has had any input as to detail of small scale (1/400) models done in steel or is detail too rough?
Should I consider other material, but I am seeking heavy weight?
Thank You for any and all direction!

Are there any guidelines anywhere for tolerances when creating threads in bronze and/or stainless steel parts so that they do assemble together after being printed?

Does anyone have much experience with this?
