Hi,

next to my work for Shapeways I'm also the editor in chief of the popular Blender newssite BlenderNation.com. For a new article I'd like to interview some Blender users who work with Shapeways - preferably shop owners. The article is scheduled for publication early next week. If you're interested in a BlenderNation appearance, please contact me on bart(at)blendernation(dot)com.

Thanks!

http://www.bestofmicro.com/actualite/26208-objet-3d-shapeway s.html

In french :
L’impression 3D est désormais une réalité que l’on peut toucher du doigt. Sous cette appellation se cache en fait la création d’objet ex nihilo, grâce à une machine qui « sculpte » entièrement un objet.

C’est cette technique la société Shapeways utilise pour fabriquer l’objet que l’on peut concevoir directement sur leur site. Une base d’objet est disponible et par le biais du «Shapeways Creator», libre à soi de moduler l’objet en 3D pour le rendre plus conforme à ses goûts. On pourra également importer directement ses fichiers depuis des logiciels de CAO (Maya, 3DS Max, etc.) pour « imprimer » ses propres objets.

Au final, le prix de la création d’un objet est compris entre 35 et 115 ¤ pour un cadeau bien plus original qu’un cendrier en rotin.

In english:
3D printing is now a reality one can touch with his finger. This designation hides in fact the creation of an object ex nihilo, thanks to a machine that "sculpt" an object entirely.

It's this technic that the society Shapeways uses to build object that you can design directly on their site. An object database is available and using the "Shapeways Creator" anyone is free to model an object in 3D to make it suit one's taste. One can also import directly its files from CAD softwares (Maya, 3DSMax etc) to "print" its own objects.

Finally the price of an object creation ranges from 35 to 115¤ for a gift more original than a rattan ashtray.

Laughing Nice but they might have advertised that for the holiday season for maximum impact.

Ah. Nuts.

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to post up some video demos showing 'Click' in action. These animations were expertly produced by daddymack of www.mack3d.com and show how cards are stored in and ejected from both the spring-loaded and manual-eject models.

http://www.mack3d.com/shapeways/ManualClickSide.mov
http://www.mack3d.com/shapeways/ManualClickFront.mov
http://www.mack3d.com/shapeways/SpringClickCutaway.mov

For those of you who haven't browsed through the DDW contest yet 'Click' is my submission: a super-compact redesign of the wallet concept that is front-pocket and formal-wear friendly. Please check it out, and if you like it vote for it! The contest ends soon and is running very close. If I were to win, the printing of my models would hugely further the development of 'Click' as far as physical testing, and my end goal is to make 'Click' available to the community here on Shapeways in some shape or form.

Thanks again to daddymack for his pro bono production of these excellent videos. You owe it to him to check them out, because they are gorgeous!

sincerely,
eMansipater

This is mearly a question of curiosity, I'm not sure it is a question that is very relevant but how much do the various materials weigh? I was wondering if the material would float in water, although In the video showing information about shapeways on blendernation in looked as though it sank :S

As the topic says: welcome to our new & improved website! We've put a LOT of work into creating a more welcoming, fresh and inspiring environment and we hope you'll like it.

Besides the eyecandy, the biggest functional improvement is that we now support the STL file format for model uploads. That should make it quite a lot easier for everyone to get their models on the site.

You just might find the odd bug here or there. If you do, please leave a comment.

So, what do you think? Is is an improvement? Smile

Cheers,

Bart

Hello all,

You perhaps have seen my Multiplicator.
I am currently working on a smaller version specially designed for kids.
This version is smaller but also more affordable (less than $50 instead of more than $100).
It can help to learn the multiplication table. I contains only the numbers featuring into the table of Pythagoras.
All has been simplified for kids:
- it look like a toy (I wanted to call it the Toydatkankount)
- only half of the cylinders are used: this avoids strange things that usually appear with logarithm tables like 4x5=2 because there is no distinction between 2 and 20.
- no number is omitted they are all written (no need to count the lines, just follow them).
- the number (and the lines) are colorful and they have been colored is an interesting way: for instance, 2 is blue 5 is yellow thus their product 10 is green, a color obtained by mixing blue and yellow. The colors I selected are blue for 2, red for 3, yellow for 5 and grey for 7.

index.php?t=getfile&id=69739&private=0

What do you think? Can this work with kids?

I know some parts are really crowded with numbers, but I wanted all the numbers of the multiplication table (and only them) to be written explicitly. Furthermore, the number are really small (2.5mm high if I remember well). I hope this will be readable.
The wheels are 4 mm thick (except where pegs are inserted (2mm only). I could reduce the price further by reducing the thickness to 3 or perhaps even 2 mm (I don't know it the ring making the wheel is considered as a supported wall or not).
Later, I will do another image for the numbers to have a "classic edition" (featuring all the numbers between 1 and 100, of course this time some of them being represented by a simple line).

Here are the two parts:
- Wheels
- Gears and Axes

Comments and suggestions welcome...

Hello all,

Well I made a medieval inspired ring design and I am curious about your opinion.

I was thinking to create a line of jewellery in this style for him and her.
And this is the first kick off.

Pretty new to all this and not yet very seasoned in modeling but I slowly get where I want to go :-)

Anyway, let me know what you think of it.

so this is a work in progress, its not certain or heavily a go yet. animal army is basically a line of action figure heads that you can apply to most ball jointed 1/18 scale action figures, as the title suggest it has animal characters and is a military themed scheme. i just want to know from the community if this catches your interest and if it is possible to sell it on shapeways, just drop a comment so i know that many of you guys will be interested, thanx

Hi.

In your experience I want to know the ideal relationship between width and deep of letters, to be printed in Gold Plated Brass. I've uploaded a model with deeper letters than its width -1.5 mm depth, for 1 or 1.2 mm thick-, and the wall thickness check marked it as OK. It will be printed OK or it will be refused?

Another question. I've designed and printed different models -with letters- but each model comes out with different sharpness, so I don't know what will be the exact relationship to reach the best results -well defined raised letters-. The manual polishing and plating process results in different finishes so I don't know the exact result until I got it on my hands! Any way to have a more precise result?

I know that's a different material but I've just received two identical parts in polished white plastic, and one of them has less detail!!! They look totally different for the polishing process -one sharper, the other one dull-. The polishing process must be best controlled.

Many thanks for your help.

Best

Hi there,

This is a concept of superman's gravity gun, supposedly customised by batman.
The print is intended for full colour sandstone.

I need some help knowing how to build the pendant so I can mount a Sapphire in it. My current build can be seen here.

I think that a small sapphire like this should fit nicely using a Burnish or Bezel setting. From what I read on Wikipedia, I don't think I would need to make any changes to the pendant in order for one of the settings to work. What do you think? Is there any changes you would recommend I make to better prepare the pendant for a stone?

When all is said and done I'm hoping it turns out something like this:

Galo de Barcelos-Story

he legend of the Rooster of Barcelos[1] tells the story of a dead rooster's miraculous intervention in proving the innocence of a man who had been falsely accused and sentenced to death. The story is associated with the 17th-century calvary that is part of the collection of the Archeological Museum located in Paço dos Condes, a gothic-style palace in Barcelos, a city in the Braga District of northwest Portugal.

I'm designing a specialized keyfob, but it requires a slot for iButton insertion from a specific direction so as to not add sheer or wear to a certain part of it.

I am kind of at a loss as to how to design the slide feature to hold the iButton on.

The idea is, the iButton needs to be removable incase of chipset failure without making the entire composition useless as was the problem with just fusing the iButton to the entire fixture.

Here's a design I created over the weekend. I am having it printed in sandstone. It will be my first 3D print in color, so I can hardly wait to see the result.

index.php?t=getfile&id=48058&private=0

So, what is it?

In an attempt to create a bit of excitement and mystery, I will not reveal what it is yet. Feel free to guess though. All I will say is that there are three reasons why it is called "PM Cubed". So that's basically three hints. What more could you ask for? ;-)

Hello Shapers!

I had a first go on a spare part for my kitchen hood. (siemens lc89950)
Sure i can order this piece, but it's €40,- (because you get the whole module)

Anyways.

Was hoping if anyone could take a look at it and maybe give me some pointers.

https://www.shapeways.com/model/1574216/hood-switch-siemens- lc89950.html
(it's downloadable)

My biggest concern is the curved part, since it will need to be flexible enough to bend, in order to press either Plus or Minus.


Cheers,

I would like to know if young teenagers and adults would buy these mugs for their friends as gifts?
I know it is a little more pricey than normal mugs but would you get these anyway? :D

Hi everyone, this is my first post on these forums.

The model in question is a full color sandstone skull of a demonic imp. I already checked it in netfabb, and as far as i am aware no geometry goes below 2.7mm, and even then it's a relatively small area on the back of head. Let me know what you think and wether or not you like it. Although the model is available for purchase, it will be some time before I can order a test print, since I am currently on a tight budget.

Hope you like it:

Anyone have experience pushing the ceramic design guidelines a little...
My wall thickness stands around 3-4mm; but the text / font embossing/engraving is between 1.5 - 3 mm. Overall height is 3" for the 44mag and 4" for the AK47. Also, anyone have a good link to explain density? Is it simply based on the bounding box? I uploaded one model that I thought would be a cheaper version with more engraving, and it turned out to be more expensive??? Thx.

The capabilities of the FUD process isn't capable of making the part I need. Free standing wires require a much greater cross section than I can tolerate. The part was intended as a master to build an RTV silicone mold as an alternative to machining one in brass. To get around the limits of the FUD process I designed some mold boxes that will enable me to build the mold directly, bypassing the intermediate master step. The mold boxes are considerably more expensive than the final product when built in a 3D process, but it's still a lot easier than machining brass.

I'm not so concerned about the dimensions of the final part, but I am concerned about the fit of the two mating surfaces of the mold. A poor fit results in a lot of flash that has to be trimmed away. Does anyone have experience with such an approach?
