Hi, I need someone with experience who can do a 3d model of the character 1-rover-1 from Battle-of-the-Planets for me.
It is for my husband's personal collection.
Provider needs to have experience with this site as I'll need it to be a certain size (of course.)

More pics available. I will pay fair price through PAYPAL. Thanks for your time.

Looking for someone to do a 3d drawing for me to be submitted to be made into a toy on this site for my husbands personal collection.
Pretty simple character: 1-rover-1 from Battle of the Planets.
You can see from picture he is pretty simple (antennae not needed but will need raised eyes). More pics available.
Willing to pay good money through PAYPAL. Provider must have an understanding of the processes of this site as I need it to be a certain size.
Thanks for your time.

I have an idea. I've been fiddling with Blender but I just don't have the time. So, I'm looking for help.

The iPhone holder would be 2 pieces. One is a carrier that is car specific. My first unit would be a rectangular shape about 22x88x110mm. This part's pretty straightforward.

Second piece is the arm with the iPhone holder part. This piece would be a little more curvy and would key into the first part.

I can provide specific dimensions and a hand drawing (digitized) of what I'm looking for.

Could someone provide me a quote for this?

Thanks!

Hi there,
i am doing 3D work for ages (started on amiga), and between archtecture, charakters and packaging design there is almost nothing where i have no experience.
All this knowledge is watertight 3D print proofed, since i am into that now also for a long time now.
Examples of my work you can find here:

www.weltundbild.de

Sorry, all in German, but you want to check out Illustrations and Schnittmuster. The pictures speak for themselfes.
I am also available for any other kind of graphic work.

Best regards
Heiner

I'd like to see if it's possible for someone to model my character from a video game. I've attached some screenshots (in a zip) to hopefully give an idea, and let me know if it is possible. I'm only interested in a one-shot deal, for personal use. I'm guessing anywhere from 3" to 6" tall is fine, and I don't care about the material, although I will paint it. And I don't care if solid or hollow.

So enough of my ill-knowledgeable babbling.

I've been really excited to see all the animators using Shapeways to create merchandise for their films and bring characters on the screen to life, as well as create models and props to use in their films. Some are even making entire films using 3D printed models. You are on the forefront of how animators using 3D animation programs can use 3D printing in their work. I look forward to the discussion and sharing here!

So I've been working on a flat mini pen that fits on a A6 Moleskine notebook.
The goal is to keep it as thin as possible. Also I'm avoiding any complex mechanics that would require manually adding springs or other non 3D printed parts.

My main issue is covering the pen point. Easiest solution seemed a regular pen cap, so I made it that way and ordered it.
But (as I could've expected) the cap doesn't fit exactly, it's too loose to stay on securely.
I have been thinking about so many ways to fix this, but it's hard because of the really thin size of the pen. A small bump to get a click seems impossible because of this size.

The pen is 5mm thick, 80mm long and 10mm wide. So there are only 1 mm walls around the cartridge.

Any ideas?

Here's a picture of what it looks like:

This is my first upload. It is a 2' x 1' box with left and right side with square holes. It is a seriously simple object and fits within the bounds of most if not all materials. Wall thickness is 1" and 0.5" Sketchup DAE export.

After it uploads, every single material says "Loading" in the autochecks. column.

If I go to my models and check "show unprintable models", it becomes available for view, edit, 3d tools and delete. If I click on 3D tools, I see a material overview pane where "wall thickness" and "machine space" show a spinning symbol.

And absolutely nothing else happens.

No errors, no messages, just perpetual wait state.

So, what am I doing wrong?

Hi all!!!

Im very new to this so bare with me.
I so desperately want to create 3d relief colour photos.
Artcam seems to be the best for what i am looking for but is it possible to either export or convert to a 3d printable file?

Would i have to export to 3 different files (mapping, texture etc.) And upload as a zip file.

Please refrain from listing other cad software.... ive already explored them all and artcam seems to be the quickest to learn and perfect for the results i want.

Please help!!!


Thank you so much in advance. XxX

Hi everybody, I'd like to share something about the 3D software design of the ELF VRdrone, which you can get an overview by clicking here.

http://www.elecfreaks.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/elf-3d-model-.jpg

It's based on FDM printers, generally using ABS or PLA as filaments.

Modular design: split complex parts into a few simple parts, assemble them after printing.

If we noticed, we'll find that by splitting the motor housing into 2 parts, the structure of "large upper part, small lower part" we mentioned at the beginning will not appear, and the success rate is greatly enhanced. Thus, for more complex designs, and those "large upper part, small lower part" unavoidable, consider about dismantling the model into several parts.

Take the ELF WIFICAM housing as an example, before we secure it to the drone, we part it into 2 parts: the shell and the hook. With the WIFICAM firstly mounted into the shell, we can then fix it on the drone using the hook.

http://www.elecfreaks.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/3D-print-modular-design.jpg

As you can see from the above design, every part can be guaranteed without any support or post-processing. We apply the same trick on the ELF battery case design.

http://www.elecfreaks.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/ELF-modular-design.jpg

Last comes the ELF overall body. The "dismantling rule" also works. In a word, for a larger overall framework, you need to work extremely intensively on every little bit to avoid collapse and pay extra efforts on the support as well as post-processing only to get a fairly humble print. The utilization of "modular design" is really important.

After printing all the parts, people will probably think about how to assemble them into an integrated robot. In the following parts, we are going to talk about some points important to pay attention.

Important points of modular design

Traditional assembly design requires up to 0.1 mm difference in size between the parts. However, due to the nozzle head diameter of FDM, the final prints have some discrepancy compared to the 3D models. Take the nozzle of 0.4 mm diameter as an instance, to print a 10x10x10 (mm), but it will result in 10×10.4×10.4 (mm) cube. Why is that?



The above picture shows that it is because the nozzle head diameter is 0.4 mm, the print length and width are both 10.4 mm, while the height remains 10 mm. If it is a single object, such errors can be ignored; but if it is several parts which will be assembled into something new, then still using the "0.1 mm difference" like we normally do will be a problem. Taking into account the mutual engagement of the two parts will eventually be more than 0.4 mm error as the design size, we come to the conclusion that the two parts must have 0.9 mm difference in size. If you need to fit them tight, narrow that difference to 0.8 mm.

Design the most efficient print how-tos.

Try to leave out support, which consumes much time outside of the useful print part and requires removal.

Use hollowed design if necessary since this saves time and filaments.

Choose the proper filaments.

FMD mainly uses two filaments: ABS and PLA, each with its own characteristics. We need to choose the proper type under different circumstances.

PLA with lower melting point, has better adhesive properties, emits no odor during the printing process-which is the biggest advantage.

ABS is better known for its low density, light weight, good toughness and certain flexibility.

If you need to print a craft, having nothing strict requirement on the weight and the toughness, then PLA is the best choice. But if you want the model lighter with some hooks or buckles, and toughness, ABS must be better. The ELF is printed by using ABS.

http://www.elecfreaks.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/ELF-using-ABS-3D-print.jpg

If you didn't already know, Tinkercad imports SVG files from Inkscape.

Also, there's a converter for Inkscape to Openscad (both programs - FREE). And from
Openscad, you can edit (if you like), compile the saved file and export it to STL format.

The Openscad exporter is here:

I am looking to add texture to some models - primarily wall finishes to HO scale models. The kind of thing I am looking for are brick/stone/wood walls and corrugated iron roofs.

The model in question is:

https://www.shapeways.com/product/FKN587EE4/ho-scale-outhous e-1-87

I appreciate that any texture won't work with wsf, but perhaps I could get them to work with detailed plastics...

Any ideas other than manually creating the textures? I am hoping there is something I can do to select a surface and apply the texture.

I am using 123D Design from Autodesk.

Thanks

Hi there I'm wondering if anyone has much experience with matte black steel jewelry? I have printed one piece in this material but intending to sell it and have a potential customer asking if the black will wear off. Anyone have more insight into the creation process for this material, or know how it wears long term for jewelry? Thanks for your help, any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hello!

I'm in the process of designing a ring, that I'm either going to order in polished brass, preferably. Bronze is also an option if it turns out it's stronger. My question is, what would the minimum thickness of the band need to be? Currently mine is at 1.1mm, I could go up to 1.25mm if needed. The profile of the band is a square, not a circle (cross section). Would brass be strong enough for a ring like that?

iMakr and MyMiniFactory present the second iMakrthon, the hackathon dedicated to 3D printing. This next edition will be held on 7th February and will focus on 3D sculpture.

The focus will be to produce a 3D printable, 3D sculpted piece of concept art. Participants will compete against each other in a 24 hour competition held at the iMakr Store, 79 Clerkenwell Road, London.
This is a call to all 3D designers who want to test their skills and see what they can produce in a highly competitive enviroment.
The design brief will be announced on the day of the competition.

I've uploaded a .dae of my sculpture, and I see a full color preview. I then ordered a printing in color sandstone.

My sculpture contains the following colors: Red, Yellow, Light Blue, and Grey.

All areas printed as shown in the full color preview except the Red area. It basically printed as a "Dark Grey".

I submitted a support request a week again, and still haven't heard back - I see that experts are responding here rather quickly, so I'm coming to you all for help.

FYI - sculpture produced in Blender.

Thanks in advance!

I have only printed one model in bronze ( Kosmoceratops, David Krentz Dinosaurs) and I was a little distraught at where the caster chose to place the pour channel -plug- or whatever you want to call it. It was put right in the middle of the model and when polished off it left a giant shiny bald spot which obliterated all the details. I've done lots of bronze casting before, so I understand the reasons for choosing a large area like that, but I would like to at least suggest another spot on the model where it wouldn't be so visible! Is there a wAy to communicate that? Could I just model a channel myself? Would it be ignored?

Dear all, I'm a university student in charge of developing a biochemical device (reactor) for the depuration of leather factory wastewaters, this is an european project leaded by Ambiental Engineering University of Florence. Part of this device should be colonized with fungi in order to purify water, and they (the fungi) need a biodegradable material with a certain porosity to grow. I am currently developing a tester sample and I'm going to 3D print it in PLA. The tester should be as similar as it can be to a small cube of "low density polyurethane foam" ( http://www.modulor.de/out/pictures/generated/product/1/800_6 00_85/241590_1_pu-filterschaum-schwarz.jpg).
I was thinking about using some algorythm like voronoi, but I'm not sure it is the best option.
What do you think? How would you make the 3D model?

Ps: I'm quite used to nurbs modeling, but not so much in poly. I guess the latter method is more suitable, am I wrong?

Hey everyone,

after uploading my model I saw that my walls are too thin. I fixed this by pressing on the button, I can see the fixed model, with a new price. But when I press on the save changes button, my model appears with the old price and is indicated with thinn walls.

Could you please tell me what is wrong with my model?

Thanks for your help!

Cheers,

Anastasia

Hi,

I have allready ordered two pieces trhough shapeways and I don't want to mess up again. I need to fit the black piece inside the 3d printed white piece. I need to get as close as possible, so I would like to know wich is the tollerance of the 3d printing with the white, strong and flexible material. So how much space would you let bewttwen the 3d printing piece and my other piece that I already have?

Thankyou very much!


Carlos.
