Hi Shapeways fans,

Futtminx is a tribute to the brilliant Tuttminx design by Lee Tutt, which has been mass produced by Leslie Lee / VeryPuzzle. The hexagonal faces of the original Tuttminx can only be turned by multiples of 120 degrees. If one tries to makes 60-degrees turns with the Tuttminx, then adjacent turns are blocked. It is not possible to fully unbandage Tuttminx into a doctrinaire puzzle, as Tuttminx is arguably a puzzle that jumbles.

"Futtminx" stands for "Fudged Tuttminx". The corners are fudged into threefold symmetry, where all edges are fudged and made identical. The puzzle has a lot of gaps between the pieces as a result of the fudging. Also, the pieces shift a bit during a turn to make all turns possible, including 60-degrees hexagon turns.

One innovation of this puzzle is that 31 of the centers are bolted from the inside out. This saves a lot of work for placing caps on the centers and it looks better. The 32nd center has a long bolt that bolts the two core hemispheres together.

Watch the YouTube video.

This is my first topic here at Shapeways, though I have been a devoted customer for some time here.

I have other puzzles in my shop, but this one is so beautiful and turned out so well I decided it was time to finally post one of my own products. The stickers were of course obtained elsewhere than Shapeways.

It is available for sale in my shop, but because of the triangle limit it must be purchased in three separate files.

You can read more about it and see some more pictures at
Twistypuzzles forum,

Watch a video.

My first prints arrived! I ordered a few stainless and a few plastic pieces - surprisingly the Stainless Steel parts arrived first.

They are:

"My Favorite Lady" by Baltimore - http://shpws.me/m0p
I was going to polish this up but the finish as it was delivered looks great and really suits our favorite lady.

I have not tested the actual functionality of this key... I'm a long ways away from Amsterdam and avoid trouble as best as I can, but liked the ingenuity that went into the making of this file, and it makes for a nice decoration on my keychain.

I gave this to my girlfriend for Valentine's day (I gave her a better present on her birthday two days before Smile ).
The turned layer prevents identical pieces, which helps makes solving easier that if both layers were at the same angle.
The darker 'Winter Red' looks very nice.

The angle at which the layers are turned is customizable. Buy your own here!

Ankh pendant in stainless steel arrived recently. Small details turned out quite well, I think. The Eye of Horus at the bottom is supposed to have a separation between the eye and eyebrow which is just barely visible here but I expected that since the gap was really narrow.

Some time ago I printed a puzzle designed by Frank Worrel, "Cubed" ( http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=4691&a mp;start=0&), this time I printed its bigger brother, called "Cubed 8" (http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~uy7t-isn/Puzzle/666/Cubed8/).

Cubed consists of 6 pieces that form a 5x5x5 cube. Cubed 8 has 8 pieces to form a 6x6x6 cube.

The assembled puzzle has a side of 3.6cm. The pieces don't align very precisely on the exterior, so it doesn't look as elegant as it could.

index.php?t=getfile&id=7810&private=0

The difficulty is much higher than Cubed. It takes a total of 35 moves to take out the first piece, and an amazing 21 moves just to get here:

index.php?t=getfile&id=7811&private=0

The puzzle works fine; it was a bit tight initially, but the excess material came out after rubbing the pieces against each other a few times.
I made the pieces hollow to save on material, using 0.7mm walls, but I think that this way the pieces are a bit too flexible which gives the puzzle sort of a rubbery feel. Here are all the pieces after disassembly:

Hi Shapeways fans,

Polo Gears is a puzzle invented by Alex Polonsky. After seeing his prototype, I asked whether I could build my own prototype. This puzzle is turned by turning knobs at opposite sides. Because of Alex' special gearing mechanism, the other knobs turn in opposite directions.

These are a couple of stainless steel rings I got a few weeks ago. I sanded and polished them with a dremel. I ordered these before the new stainless steel design rules went into effect, now I'm not sure if they would be willing to print the trapezoid ring with such small details.

(Images at end of post.)

I ordered nullnetworks' Skull Ring in WSF for my son (6½ years). I do wish I had something that cool when I was his age! Smile As a physician I have high standards when it comes to body part replicas, and this did not disappoint me. I do not think I could have done it better myself. Price was good too.

Since I have been experimenting with designs of spinning tops, my son is beginning to worship "Beyblade" and I personally find tops cool, I decided to order the Inception movie top replica designed by Roessnakhan, this one in Alumide. Very nice top, spins well and looks good.

I downloaded the 500k faces model Omotondo from Aim@Shape, had to reduce it to 475k faces for Shapeways to accept it, and scaled this scanned wooden sculpture to a much too small size (16 mm) before ordering it in Alumide. It looks nice but the details and the overall impression of the sculpture is lost when it is this small.

I also ordered my own design Second Harmony of the Spheres which turned out to be a less than perfect design. The walls are too thin, it is not stable enough, and I will want more weight in the periphery to make it spin better. Holding it in my hand I also realize it could be smaller and still impressive.

Other dice arrived.
In Indigo Strong and Flexible.
These ones are regular D6, but the reading of the numbers is quite unusual. You have to count the tiles to figure out what the number is.
There are two variations.
The D6 - Solid Tiles, that looks like a wall of bricks
index.php?t=getfile&id=7708&private=0

The D6 - Framed Tiles, that rather looks loke bars of cage.
index.php?t=getfile&id=7709&private=0
Here you can consider you count the holes on the upper side.

There are very big for dice (3x3x3 cm). Perhaps i should do smaller versions (2x2x2 cm). Let me know if you would like to see such smaller versions.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Hinged Gift Cube is a variation to the original Gift Cube theme. Will Pulford suggested to add hinges. As the hinges keep cube pairs together, the puzzle is solved like a bandaged Rubik's Cube. This makes the puzzle harder to solve than a regular Rubik's Cube. Once solved, the puzzle can be hinged open. The lid of the puzzle stays with the bottom thanks to the hinges.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Mixup 5x5x5 is a twisty puzzle where many more pieces can swap place than one would expect. The puzzle has 262 pieces, of which 66 inter-swappable "squares" and 72 inter-swappable "spacers" between them. Each "square" can be in any of its four orientations. The name of this puzzle is ambiguous, as there are 9 pieces in a row at the edges. Still, the base puzzle is a 5x5x5. For the specialists: this puzzle jumbles and it is fudged.

I'm very excited because I've just got the delivery of the prototype of a new model I've set up. I already set up a co-creator to 3D print a photo as a halftone grid but for this new one I wanted to see if I could have two photos in one model.

It uses the same principle as an aperture grille CRT monitor.

index.php?t=getfile&id=7460&private=0

The photos are stored as rods of varying length, the two photos are interleaved side-by-side but the grille in front hides one of the sets of rods when you look from one side. As you move to the other side the other photo is revealed.

The photos don't really show the effect that well so I've put a video on YouTube

The model is set up in Processing so I should be able to make a co-creator soon...

This is the result of a co-creator template that makes a wire mesh whose contour is your head profile at 1:1 scale.
http://www.shapeways.com/model/128281/wire_mesh_of_your_head _profile.html

It was printed in Red Winter S&F. The contour was taken from a side view head photo and the scale was deduced from a ruler put on the sideburn while taking the photo. For the required minimum and maximum diameters of the model, the selected values were 2 cm (tip of the nose) and 11 cm (top circle).

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5260/5438526997_af79e0b0ca_m.jpg http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5138/5439120220_1be8f8c945_m.jpg http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5058/5438520105_28d79496c4_m.jpg

In the next video you can see the model with the real face:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apTLhVp8Fe0

The model is a little bigger because the reference image was taken with a webcam at wide angle, practice that must be avoided. It's better to use the maximum zoom of your camera.

The second part of the video shows the flexibility of the model, whose wires have a diameter of 1.5 mm.

Well, my first set of cufflinks have arrived. I ordered them to test the design and size and to make sure they operated as cufflinks.

I have to say that they work rather well (I am wearing them at the moment).

I also have a set of Stainless Steel cufflinks ordered, so I can see any differences in detail/shrikage etc

I have attached 3 images.

As worn, displayed on a table and my initial design.

The only "issue" I see, is that the text which was fairly thin writing on the button section of the cufflink is not visible. That is due to the printing resolution currently available, so is to be expected.

Over all, I am really impressed.

Yep, they are here, and I'm really happy with them again.
Printed in WSF, with very thin walls & small details.
They are both again i 2mm/ft scale.

CRystaL MaZE, walk through Glass maze.
Measures 78mm Wide, 24mm Deep & 30mm High.
It is awaiting a Black Plasitcard roof, some transparent plastic "Glass" & some LED's on the top, there are 2 thin channels on the back of the model to fit the wires through. I'l update when Painted/Lit.
index.php?t=getfile&id=7191&private=0

Top Spin, based on the HO Scale (4mm/ft) Faller model kit.
Measures 105mm Wide, 72mm Deep & 60mm High. There are no restraints, as it is not possible to model/print them in this scale.
And both together, the Maze is Dwarfed by the Top Spin!
index.php?t=getfile&id=7192&private=0

There will be more, some time in the future, but that is it for a while.
Thanks for looking,
Tom.

Hi everybody!

I got this a few weeks ago. It is based on the same principle as my Secret Message Pendant.
It appears to be a regular pendant depicting the initial letter of the wearers name but when viewed from the side, it reveals the full name of the initial letter.
I ordered this for my wife Irene (EIPHNH in Greek) and she liked it a lot Smile

A pendant that I designed to give it that hammered-metal look. This one has had post-work with Dremel polishing.

For the Surfer Dude (or Beach Bunny Twisted Evil ) in all of us, this surfboard with a shark bite out of it is, perhaps, a metaphor for life: Have fun but watch out for the sharks!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Over The Top is a world-record 17x17x17 Rubik's Cube. It makes quite pretty patterns. It can take many, many hours to solve.

Watch the YouTube video.
Have a look at the inside of this puzzle.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Get Stuck Cube is a puzzle with an unusual challenge: the goal is to get stuck! The puzzle has a set of sliding pieces, sliding on the surface of a Rubik's Cube. Six of the sliding pieces are double size. They act like a movable bandage. As a Rubik's Cube has six turning faces, it should be possible to block each turn and to get stuck.

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

Half Persian 4 in 1 chain maille sampler

I originally made some of this chain using real coloured aluminium wire (coiled and cut to make the rings) to get my head around how the rings are linked together. Making the chain in RL took minutes to master, figuring out the size, aspect ratio, angles and spacing suitable for 3D printing took hours.

http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/chain-maille/images/hp4in1-large-rings-vs-homemade-sml.jpg
Larger image here

The model for the large version has about 0.4mm spacing between the rings.

http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/chain-maille/images/hp4in1-large-rings-scale-sml.jpg
Larger image here

Just to see if it would work out or if they would get fused, I scaled the large version down by 55% - the spacing between the rings is just 0.22mm in the model. The large rings are 1.8mm wire and 9.9mm ID, the small rings are 1mm wire and 5.5mm ID, both have an aspect ratio of 5.5

And close up the small rings in all their 'as printed' glory Smile

Yay, *Forum Title*
3rd Order, and continually wanting more!
I had 3 Model Rides printed that I only ordered about 8 working days ago, so again, a good service by ShapeWays!
They are N Scale Model Fair Rides, scale is 2mm to the foot.
On with some photos!

Fun House, 50ft wide..It's only a frame, to save on costs, I'll PlastiCard it later:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6867&private=0

Dodgems... 40ft x 60ft track, Again just frame:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6868&private=0

And a close-up of 1 of the 16 Cars:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6869&private=0
They are too small scale wise, but I'll redo them later, they measure about 11.5mm x 7mm x 5mm, I was way out with the scale sizes, as wanted to get them to look right first, which took some time, but I got a basic recognisable Dodgem Car shape.

And finally, an overall view of them all...
index.php?t=getfile&id=6870&private=0
Also shows the Cars for the Dodgem set, the Laser Cut Challenger Kit, & The Log track, which I made only as the channels, because we can easily make the framework for it, and in the photo, it is propped up by a piece of Mountboard. The Log Channels aren't deep enough at all, so I may print another one after some basic alterations.
The Challenger looks tiny compared to the others, but scale wise, it is fairly correct, and can probably hold the 36 capacity, but the base would look alot better if it was risen at the back, and when the Chequer Plating goes on (More PlastiCard).

All models, bar the Challenger, were Printed in WSF.
Thanks for looking,
Tom.

This actually arrived a while ago, but with Valentine's Day coming up, I thought this was a good time to show it off. I had it printed in WSF and coated it with a red sparkly nail polish. (I also gave it a coat of Future floor polish initially, which I think made the nail polish a bit harder to apply evenly, unfortunately.)

I'm sorry that the photo isn't very good. I'm not much of a photographer, and my camera isn't up to much anyway (or at least not closeups).

Hi Shapeways fans,

Sliding Cube is a 2x2x2 cube with 23 tiles sliding around the cube. As the square tiles can slide over edges, they can change orientation. This makes it harder to solve than regular two-dimensional sliding-piece puzzles.

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

My SporKnife arrived! I designed it from a spork / knife I bought at a store. This was mainly just a project to fine tune my skills in Inventor. I was going to get it in Stainless but, I couldn't convince myself to buy an eating utensil for more than $50... Shocked

Material: Transparent Detail
Thickness: ~2mm

Here are some pictures that compare the two objects. Enjoy Very Happy

So I get an email, saying my order is to be delivered today, I think, wow, that was quick, just less than a week, and I see the UPS Van pull up outside, get all excited, and eventually open my package...Wow, they're better than I expected, considering the size!

I modelled basic detailed N Gauge/Scale Portaloos, or Portable Toilets, whatever you like to call them in White, Strong & Flexible.
They are in Blocks of Four, and there are Twelve of these, bringing a total of 48 Portaloos.
The Blocks are made up of 8mm x 8mm squares, with a wall thickness of 1mm on the front, and 0.8mm on the other 3 sides. They are 14mm High, and have a curve with a peak of 0.8mm on the top.
The Basic detailing is 2 squares on either side, that are extruded 0.2mm, and these show up quite well.
There is also a frame like detail on the front that is again, extruded 0.2mm, and shows up quite well.
Because each Portaloo has 0.2mm extruded surfaces on each side, in their blocks, I positioned them so they touch, which gives them a clearance of 0.4mm between the sides, and this did fuse the Sides together, but it's not a problem, as they look alrite, and with a swipe of a blade, they divide and the gap opens, to make them look better.
On with some photos!

This is one Block of Four, which is laid down on it's back:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6736&private=0

Attempt(Quite hard to focus the camera on something that small!) at showing the Basic Detailing on the Front, and how they line up:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6737&private=0

And an overview of roughly how they will be used, on a N Gauge(2mm/ft) Model Steam Fair Layout:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6738&private=0

All in all, for my second ShapeWays order, its been great, the first model I made myself, and first time I'v used WSF, & am very happy with the results, & will order some more N Gauge models very soon.
Thanks for reading,
Check out what I have for sale,
Tom.

Both of these I wanted to order a while ago, just never got to it. My first flicka fit perfectly, but these 2 seem to be slightly too small, so I'll have to modify my flickas. But they still deserve to be introduced. The gimp flicka (inspired by the film pulp fiction). Awesome except the base is slightly too tight for it to slide all the way on. And the shark attack flicka (inspired by the film Jaws of course). Also came out great, but being slighly too small it doesn't sit on a lighter right.

index.php?t=getfile&id=6729&private=0

As always my photography is awesome Razz on my daughters princess table

Also got a few other items, 2 of them I need to buy a couple cans of soda to test, and the other is a secrete so I can't share it just yet. Put it came out GREAT.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Mixup 3x3x4 is a 3x3x4 twisty puzzle of which all centers and edges can be interchanged. This results in some unexpected shape shifting. Sixteen small wedge pieces are visible at the outside. These guide the turning of the middle slices.

Watch the YouTube video.
