With an incredible succes, I've attended yesterday at "Kunst in het Volkspark" an amazing event where art and design are mixed each other, in Enschede - The Netherlands, with more than 30.000 visitors.

The most beautiful thing was to see the smiling and happy face of very enthusiastic women watching my designs, asking me information about this technology and than say: "... I love it, I want it!"

A very special thanks to these special women that love this new technology dressed with elegance.

Dario Scapitta Design.

Hi and welcome to the Shapeways forum! 3D printing is a cool technology, but in the end it's the people who will really make it count. Thanks for joining us Smile If this is your first time here, check out the FAQs. Lots of answers to common questions can be found there.

The forum is where community members go to learn, create and inspire one another. It's an amazing place, and we want to keep it that way.

Read first. Then post
There's an incredible amount of knowledge and a wide range of people who hang out here. Read a few posts, get to know the tone and the humor. Once you do post, you'll have a much easier time getting or giving help. The more you engage with the community, the more you'll get out of the time you spend here.

Keep it human
Feel free to introduce yourself. Let us know who you are and what you're excited about. There are real humans behind all these screens, and that's a good thing!

Criticize constructively
Healthy debate and many discerning tastes are one of the best things about this community. But remember that not everything you say through text comes across with the smile, the laugh, or the good-natured sarcasm you may have intended. Take extra care to be (and sound) constructive. That said, if you see something that offends you, hit the report to moderator button and tell us why it offends you. Do not reply in retaliation, as this can make the problem worse.

Think before you post
Some things can be upsetting, but take a breath before you shoot back. If you're being demeaning, or are hurling personal attacks on others, you probably won't make many friends. Plus you run the risk of being banned. And that sucks. Please don't make us do that.

Run the boss test
We're not uptight, but we do need to make sure people feel comfortable. If you'd feel weird about your boss looking over your shoulder at whatever you're about to to post, you probably shouldn't post it. For argument's sake, let's assume you've got a cool boss.

Think Global. Think Big
One of the most amazing things about the Shapeways community is that we're dispersed all over the world. Remember that sometimes things can get lost in translation, and so it's probably best to always give people the benefit of the doubt.

Intellectual Property
Upload only models you have created, or that you have the rights to. Please don't copy other users designs, it's not good karma and it may get you in trouble.

Feedback
We love feedback, so there is a section to give feedback, to post suggestions and even complaints. Your first stop should be there to see if your question or issue has been raised before, so you can add your voice to it. We check it daily, so we know what's important to you.

Welcome and have fun!
Your moderators
Natalia, Michael, Eleanor, Stijn and Stony.

Hey folks,

next to my work here at Shapeways I also have fun running the main Blender news site, BlenderNation.com. I'm planning to do a large article on Monday to update the Blender community on some of our newer materials: Steel, Silver, Ceramics and Elasto Plastic.

For this article I'm looking for some Shapeways designs that were made using Blender. So if you have any models up (in shops, preferably!) with good photographs of 3D prints in one of those materials, please contact me at bart(at)blendernation(dot)com.

In your email, please include:

- A link to your model on Shapeways
- A 580x300 pixel photograph without any watermarks, text or logos. Submit only photographs - renders will be rejected.
- A screenshot of this project in Blender
- The name that you wish to appear in the credits

Please send your mail before Monday, 9am GMT+1 (Amsterdam time).

I'll select only one design to represent each material, so be sure to submit the very best picture you have! The selection will be based on the quality of the design, the way it demonstrates the particular material properties and the quality of the photograph.

Each BlenderNation post is usually read by about 10,000 people, so this should give your work some nice exposure!

Cheers,

Bart

Hey guys

Im curious to know if anyone has had any experience with large batch orders, and the companies they used?

I have checked with shapeways and it doesn't really seem to be their 'cup of tea'. so i hope they don't mind me posting for information on other companies

conversation below:


Hello
i have a few questions about mass prints.....

currently the limit stands at 1,000,000 triangles i feel this really limits the detail allowed in a design.
is it set like this because of current technology......i.e. anymore triangles and the printer/software cant process
it?
or is it something you guys implemented to limited general file sizes?
if so can it be changed for an individual client?
if so what is the max limit?
ideally id like to take advantage of the density discount printing 100cm3 at a time. but without limiting the detail
within my designs. is this still cost effective for you? or is shapeways more about the individual prints?
Kind Regards

----------------------------------------

Dear Piers,
Thank you for emailing us.
Unfortunately we do not offer bigger files or more polygons.
As you can understand this forces our hardware to the limit if we have to fill trays with 100 models with
polygons above the 1million (taking up to several hours to calculate the tray)
Also, there is no exact rule for multiple models per file, but if the production facility thinks that it is too much,
they will reject it.
The reason for this is that by having multiple models in a set, you only pay the handling fee (startup costs
once) but we at Shapeways still have to process all the models in the file.
This is also the reason why we already introduced this for Silver, for this material it is not allowed to have
multiple models per file, as customers just pay the handling fee once, and we have to "pay" the handling fee for
all the other models in that same particular file.
I hope this explains the situation.
Kind regards,
Mitchell Jetten
Customer Service Agent

Which sizes should i model my parts to get a 'grip' as in my attached image? I need to be able to attach a small FUD part to the strong and flexible 1mm beam, and the FUD part should be attached so it can be moved up and down the beam but don't fall of if left hanging. I hope it makes sense Smile

should both parts be sized at 1mm? beam and internal gap?

Hi,

I'll be in Berlin around June 20 and it would be great to have a user meetup while I'm there. Is there anyone here from the Berlin area who is interested in helping me prepare it? Work involved would be scouting for a nice location, being a host during the event and maybe reach out to some local maker/designer communities. Of course, I'll offer you all the help I can.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I have two separate orders that were shipped out at the same time yesterday. At least I received the UPS tracking number at the same time. One used the regular UPS service and will arrive on Thursday. The other, for some reason, was shipped with a slower service and will only arrive on Saturday.

Since these were separate orders, I have paid equal amount of shipping fee twice. If I don't have to pay shipping, I have no complain. And even worst, both these orders were late if I refer to the original expected delivery dates.

And for those who is going to suggest me to contact CS, I did, and I'm waiting for the response. But nothing will change the late delivery dates.

Hey all!

I am sad to say that our big detail machine is going offline. The new maximum bounding box for Transparent, Black, and White Detail is now 25x25x20cm.

If you need bigger models, take a look at White Strong & Flexible, or Black Strong & Flexible. Both those materials have larger bounding boxes and is the best choice in plastics for larger models (also cheaper!).

Let me know if you have any questions please!

Thanks,
Nancy

Hi everyone.

I thought I'd share the news that this entire week the Entoforms (printed by Shapeways of course) are on display in their very own booth at the rather prestigious Art & Antiques fair in den Bosch (the Netherlands).

For more information about the fair see: http://www.afsh.nl/

For more information about the Entoforms see:

Stop by if you can! I'm there myself a few days during the week and the entire weekend.

I had the problem to get a list of the latest 3d files uploaded for my items.
I managed that with some unix shell scripting code.
Maybe the starting part can be of help also for other problems.

As passing parameter it uses the downloaded csv file containing markup informations.

#!/bin/sh

wget http://www.shapeways.com/login -O logon.html --keep-session-cookies --save-cookies cookies.txt --post-data 'username=woody64&password=XXXXXXX'

more +2 $1 | sed -e "s/,.*//" | sort -u | sed -e 's|"\([0-9]*\)|wget --load-cookies cookies.txt -O \1.html http://www.shapeways.com/model/edit/\1|' | sed -e 's|"|/|' | sh


In principle it stores all item pages (in edit mode, therefor the login is needed) of your store. You can then parse out informations (like latest uploaded 3d file) out of this pages.

So I had a customer who ordered one of my products and it turns out it couldn't get printed in that specific material. So They got a message that says "the shop owner will be notified" or something along the lines of that and I never got a notification either in my email of PMs? I have an AOL account. Also I never get e-mail when somebody responds to my forum posts.

So, some people were asking me a lot of questions about 3d modeling to make 3d prints, and my photobucket account was utterly destroyed (I had to pay $3 to upgrade to pro so I could get around the bandwidth limit).

Thus, I decided to make a blog for it. I also realized that there aren't too many blogs that walk people through making models specifically for 3d printing. I'm planning on having tutorials, guides, warnings, and so forth on it. Basically just stuff that I'm learning the hard way or cool things I make.

You can find it at - Fractured Mesh

Currently working on a project that will be back lighted yet requires the maximum amount of diffused light to pass through yet keep the source obscured. There will be a total of 16 LEDs as the light source with a 4 mm distance from the face of the LEDs to the back of diffusion material.

1 - Will 1 mm of diffusion material be too thick to allow the light pass through?
2 - Which diffusion material would be better (WSF or Frosted Detail) for allowing maximum diffused light transfer (knowing that FD can provide thinner walls)?

The diffuser is also made to be interchangeable with to provide either a thicker or thinner "face" and will have small locking tab that will need to flex maybe .5-1 mm.

Hi mates!!

I'm an illustrator based in Barcelona,Spain.
One of my dreams in the last years was to make (or at least try) to make my own vinyl toys. After some research, I started to use zbrush for conceptualizing shapes, and make the finished model, being able to acomplish some nice and smooth results.
The model was made using a stl system (yes, 3d printing), and a lot of postproduction work (priming, sanding, etc...).
I started a IndieGoGo campaign (crowdfunding), because I need help for start the manufacturing process (casting materials, packaging, etc...).

read more at http://www.indiegogo.com/Chubbyrd-art-toy and don't forget to share the campaign's link in your favourite social network. And buy one if u like it !!!

Cheers from Spain!!!!

It is very much like Autocad, 2d solid and 3d face included, can export to STL

Looks like a debut of a new 3D printer similar to a RepRap. More details here, its based in Slovenia, and the prizes include a desktop 3D printer and 3D prints (likely from said printer).


If you're new to 3D printing, learn the secrets from a professional. Get my book "3D Printing with SketchUp"

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else has been having problems with their 'shapways shop' widget on their wordpress website?

I've had one for.. 5 months now and it worked perfectly... but i realized today that it isn't loading any models anymore...?

Has anyone else encountered this problem?
or
Has anyone corrected this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
