Hehe, I found a use for my Companion Cube Box. What's small enough to fit into a box that's just 2" in size?

What you see here,is a structure very different from the tradisional . maybe the most simple is the most difficult to realise,, but the idea with 3dh when it was develobed, was to use it with a 3D solid model, -- not one that only display the surfaces, but one that in a house, contain floors with the actural thickness, walls, and even stairs. Then turning two of the tradisional planes, say front and top 45 deg, and slicing the Solid model, will produce a lattrice of sections originaly with halve-notch overlap, later the overlap replaced by a connecting unit for easy. Compared the tradisional frame or rib structure, this is a great step forwerds and those 15 years ago assemblies of that sort, was all made from the tree tradisional planes, like many structures of skin-frame-stringer structures today.--- plane fuselages, boat hulls, many different things is made very tradisionaly where this system replace all of that with a compleatly new way to percive a structure.
The idea is to replace the "dead volumes" in a Solid model, with a honeycomb lattrice, the cells will be square as that is what come by slicing the model, but not following the tradisional planes -- why is proberly obvious from the graphics, othervise this rendering proberly help :

http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/29311_1458546462039_1184722724_31373256_5668969_n.jpg


Originaly 3dh was develobed for boatsbuilding where it make wonders, working in a much more sense and smooth way, to produce the all important ribs or frames, in an assemble lattrice creating just any form of a ships hull, as the honeycomb structure it has to display with the tradisional panel.frame-stringer combination offering a lightweight structure stronger and more flexible, than anything.
In aeroplane fuselages, you see the actural same structural system as in ships ; paralell rings of frames sometimes interconnected sometimes not -- loading all stress over into the thin paneling and producing a fragile structure, -- fragile compared the 3dh, where no frames stand alone but is supported by all others, working as the core for a honeycomb structure, again images is much better than words ;
http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash1/29311_1458548062079_1184722724_31373285_7648721_n.jpg


Now all these structures are planned to be made from sections cut from sheet material, with overlap halve notches to secure the structure, assemble it. But it is also an interesting option as it is so easy to slice a solid model, and that way get a strong lightweight structure, by instant prototype technikes.

Sorry, english is not my prime language, the 3dh technike was published by the chinese architecture magazin ECC 2004, 3dh offer many other applications ,there are more structures at my FaceBook profile ;

Have Shapeways considered offering a vacuum metalization service for their products for items made using white detail, frosted detail or frosted ultra detail?

This can be used as a surface that can then be electroplated upon to give different surface finishes or just to give a basic metallic surface to act as a reflector, a decorative finish or provide RF screening.

I am interested in it for creating light reflectors. In the past I have painted special copper paint onto the surface of a item, then copper plated and finished with a nickel plate (polishing at each stage).

I uploaded 3 models.
The largest has all materials available.
The middle one (which is quite thin in spots) had fewer materials available.
The smallest and thinnest one only had one material available.
It seems obvious what is happening but I thought I would ask.
Does the size/thickness determine which materials are able to be used?

This website might be of interest to shapeways people. They are trying to make embedding 3d content on webpages as easy as YouTube makes embedding video. They're using WebGL, which is now standard in chrome and firefox, and on the way for safari and opera.

Hi,
One of the guys who is selling N-scale train models in his shop, has been telling his customers that FUD will only be available until the 16th of June and thus can only be ordered for 3 more days. Is this correct?

Will the possibility to order FUD disappear on the 16th of June or hasn't this been decided yet?

Cheers,

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has had success with a Shapeways workflow that involves multiple textures. (I'm currently using google sketchup as my starting point)

I found this tutorial on using meshlab to export vrml with a texture http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=8885 &S=c719b3cd1bc9109b4956fc3ea55b3d8f which while it is great has one glaring problem for me which is that apparently meshlab only exports vrml with a single texture and as a result strips out all my additional textures.

Hoping someone can assist.

Thanks,
Tim

So, not really about 3d printing, more about high power leds.

And as many like to design light sculptures on Shapeways, I think it's relevant enough:

Cree goes beyond theoretical max of 200 lumen/watt, to 231 Smile
http://www.cree.com/press/press_detail.asp?i=1304945651119

Not in production yet, but they have a good reputation on delivering this kind of stuff.
And I know I am very happy about this for one Smile
(might also be a bit because of my background in EE though)

So how is this useful? Well more lumen/watt means less heat and more compact but still bright lights.

I am still working on using a few Cree-like leds to work with Shy-light and companions.

Currently they come in 1 and 3 watt variant, with combichips up to 10 Watt. Producing well into the hundreds of lumen.
Problem?
They generate quite a bit of heat still and these led's usually come on an aluminium star which need need mounting on cooling elements. Which can take up useful space and need airflow, defeating the purpose of small led's.

So here's to better LED's Wink

Cheers.

So ceramic is the first Shapeways Foodsafe material.

Is there any hint, suggestion, or rumor that we might see another one soon? I'm looking for a plastic-y foodsafe material for small items. I'd rather go with Shapeways when I finally can afford to order some models, especially my first order, but I'm waiting for foodsafe.

I love the fact that Shapeways offers the black necklace on all pendant orders, but I have a suggestion...

Shapeways in their own wording have "suggested" that pendant bails (eyelets) lie flat with the pendant - i.e. a donut shape lying flat on the chest rather than on its side. However, for the wearer this is not desirable since the pendant (depending on design) will then have a tendency to want to turn on the necklace.

Could I offer a request for Shapeways to look into adding a small "O" ring with the necklace so that the pendant will than hang flat...?

Hello all,
I'm super new to this whole world of 3d modeling and such. I'm trying to make some burr-like puzzles somewhat like Richgain's Inside Out Cube ( http://www.shapeways.com/model/22197/inside_out_cube.html?gi d=mg).
I just downloaded and tried my hand at using Google Sketchups (my work attached). The puzzle I'm trying to make is a knot burr puzzle, http://www.craftsmanspace.com/Free%20projects/Knot%20Burr%20 Puzzle.pdf. I know the size is off but I was wondering if I was going about the design the right way. I made the pieces out of square and rectangle cubes and I was wondering if the pieces need to be made as one solid instead of the multiple pieces. In other words, I need if know if when the closed piece prints if it will print as 4 pieces or one solid since the cubes are smooshed together. Also the puzzle has three separate pieces and I was wondering if there is a certain protocol for having these printed as opposed to when a one piece object is printed. Thank you for any help you can provide Smile

hello,

i was wondering if there is an easy and reliable way to check if diferent parts in a file don't intersect.

I have lots of parts and move them together to get a compact compound box.

I'm using acad2011. I thought it would be a good idea to check it using the inquiry tool 'volume'. They should be the same before and after a union i should suppose but the strange thing is that volume even increases after a union of all parts.

What i REALLY liked about this article is that Google translator translated the word "Shapeways" from Hebrew to English !!
That means one thing... Shapeways is growing to be a household name.

But after I got the one saucer....I NEVER saw it again....and was wondering if anyone knew 'what happened'...or if smaller scale versions MIGHT be offered later on of the saucer to go with others I've gotten from other vendors for my 'space-pulp/retro-rocket' style wargames.....
