NASA is trying something interesting..
Electron Beam Freeform Fabrication:
http://www.nasa.gov/topics/aeronautics/features/electron_bea m.html

I really like the part about 2 separate feed stocks that can be combined as an alloy or two separate materials.
If only that was made possible in SLS/FDM/Objet machines as well... Wink

Hi,

I'm new here, I was searching on the net for 3d printing a 75mm figure, I got quoted from an English company (because I live in England) total cost being £350 - £600 ($550 - $950) depending on if they need to fix the file to make it printable or not.

With some tutorials and help from you good people at shapeways I managed to make the file printable and get the 75mm figure printed (hopefully - I am still waiting to see if walls are too thin) for just a few dollars - I don't get it, why are you guys so much more cheaper than anywhere else? It seems to be such a massive difference.

I worked at a prototype toys company for a while, they printed out toys and the material cost for the printer was real expensive as well Confused

Also, I have a suggestion - maybe you could provide a service to make files printable?

Keep up the great work guys Razz

For me it would be helpfull to make a direct snapshot from 3d view, which is stored in the item's picture gallery.

As I was taking the survey shapeways emailed me. I was thinking, that when orders are placed, there should be a survey of types. I put my shop on my facebook, fairly often. I would like to know if anyone pays attention when I post that. Also was thinking who ever brings the most traffic to shapeways in a month should get a coupon or something.

hiya guys and gals of shapeways land.

its a strange one this one, since the moving of everything being able to be done in metal, ive had one of my designs that ive wanted done.

nasty thing is, its the only one of my designs that i cant select a "print in metal" option...........any one got any clues?

its called "ElderNecklace"


i re-uploaded the design just incase it was an issue with previous back end tinkerings, and still nothing.......

so clues?





EDIT:
All sorted now, it was a thickness issue 2.9mm when threshold is 3mm

Hi,

Now that stainless steel / metal is available for all - can we discuss here some details and constraints about this new materials?

I did read FAQ and some older newsletter emails about this so I gathered some info there - but I wonder what happens if I send some of my models to print in metal and then it turns out it can't be done? Is process then aborted? Or... am I sent back whatever comes out?
Some of my models already done in WSF will probably not work in metal as they have really fine "threads" (about 1mm)... so I am wondering would shapeways create some simple template model with OK printable dimensions / shapes so we can learn from there... you know... like test object that can have OK side + maybe couple of examples you know will not work on a
"bad" side. Few photos with some comments of such object would be a great learning tool.

It may save everyone some time and frustration.

For example, that Klein Bottle by Batsheeba is OK example of what can work - but can anyone tell me how thick are these finest rods in the lattice? Looks to me like these are about 1.5mm or even thinner... bridging the gap of about 3mm at some points.

So... if I have 1.5 mm x 1.5mm thick rod in my design how long that piece can be before if should be supported by another one? 5mm? 10mm? With WSF one can go quite far with that - but I presume metal is all other story.

Any feedback welcome!

Does anyone know of a company that will create custom printed packaging?

I'm thinking once I get to where I'm putting together pieces for sale I would like to find a company that can print me out packaging in quantities of 1-100 rather than the industry norm of 1200 in a minimum order.

Does anyone know of any? Oh, and I live in the States, so an internet based company would be best.

Found this really in depth article about creating your very own Render farm.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/render-farm-node,2340.ht ml

I have pondered this several times myself with Blender, but this really fleshes out the concept.

For those of you not familiar with the term "Render farm", it is using multiple computers to assist 3D and graphical programs in rendering images.

I was wondering if it would be possible to make some sort of form for submitting our objects that we'd like to see in stainless steel. I understand that you have to check them all manually so emailing them directly works easy enough, but a form similar to uploading a regular model could make it easier still.
I was also wondering about confirmation emails after we submit models to be checked. When we upload a normal model the email we receive both confirms that everything went through alright (or didn't in some cases) and is a way (for me at least) to keep track of what models have been uploaded and approved. Currently I am still wondering if Shapeways received my email about models to be available for stainless and an email response would be useful.
I know with all the recent updates and new materials the Shapeways staff is very busy, but I think these suggestions might streamline this process a bit.

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

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

Hi Shapeways fans,

Tube Maze is a mechanical maze. The object is to move the ring around the knotted beams and remove it. Both the flag and the ring are asymmetrical. In the start position, the rings hangs under the flag, but it cannot come off. When the ring makes the right trajectory through the maze, it is turned upside down.Only then, the ring can come off from the flag.

Tube Maze is my very first 3D-printed puzzle. The original prototype was printed by George Miller on his Dimension machine in 2003, see here.

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

I am very excited that my first two pairs of cufflinks have arrived.

The first is based on a motif of the city of Milan and involved quite a bit of fiddling around with the design, particularly to get the finer areas acceptable to print. I am quite happy with the design, but might also do a larger, bolder version.
index.php?t=getfile&id=86475&private=0

Check it out in my store here:
https://www.shapeways.com/product/UZPYR75HS/milano-biscione- cufflinks

The second is a compass design, as below. I am really happy with how this turned out - I am actually wearing them today!
index.php?t=getfile&id=86477&private=0

Check it out in my store here:
https://www.shapeways.com/product/SEUTPSH35/compass-cufflink s

The only thing I will update on other cufflinks is to make the 'stalk' and the 'stopper' bit a little larger. That said, they work really well and look great.

I got my prototype of my 8th Doctor's sonic screwdriver model kit today and had a chance to clean it up and put it together, showing the implementation of an existing electronics core unit to get light and sound using the functional trigger on the outside of the main shaft of the prop.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTUyBdYfcfk

You can see me struggling to insert the core unit inside - some increase in tolerances are in order there, but I managed to squeeze it in for the demonstration.

The trigger is extremely responsive to activate the push button on the core, which I'm extremely happy with, as this is the most important function of the kit's new design features.

The FUD emitter head doesn't light up as much as I'd like (a result of the core unit and its relative position to the trigger on the actual prop leaving the LED a good distance away from it) so I grabbed a piece of 1/8" acrylic rod I had on hand to place in front of the LED and extend up into the emitter itself. I sanded the end and outside of the rod to diffuse the light and once implemented, you can see an increase in the brightness of the actual emitter. I've since ordered a 3/16" thick rod and redesigned the inside of the top 'fin assembly' to hold it in place. This should go a long way to light the emitter properly.

There is significant light bleed through the white plastic around the location of the emitter in the core but after one coat of black paint, it's significantly diminished and should be gone entirely after a few more coats of paint (except maybe in the dark).

At the end of the video, you can see me comparing it to (what's left of) the old version of the model which was much smaller, and to the 11th/12th Doctor's sonic screwdriver 3d printed (and painted) prop I designed awhile back. At the very end, you can get a better look at the emitter brightness when I turn the desk lamp off.

I'm really happy with the way the pieces turned out, especially with the responsive functionality of the trigger. It's easier to activate it with the trigger on the model than with the push button itself! Aside from an oversight on my end involving the necessary clearance inside for core, everything fit's nicely. That emitter clicks right into place, you can hear it! It's just a but difficult to remove...

I am working on a tabletop game that uses these pieces. I have 11 gladiators and 18 arsenal pieces ready. My favorite part is that we were able to redesign the pedestals so that we can print legible character stats directly on there! Pretty fun.

Credit goes to SpecToys for much of the heavy lifting.

I am looking forward to getting the other 9 because a lot of them had more detailed armor/weapons/etc.

It goes without saying that if you model in 3D, at some point you do a robot. This one arrived yestday and it's printed in metallic plastic. Two pics attached.

For added fun, I stood Roger Retro on top of a flashlight to make his suit light up and his one eye glow brightly. Very cool at night !

It's been a while since I've launched a new design, here's my latest cufflinks, printed in Matte Black Steel:

Hi Shapeways fans,

Bram's Cube Plus is a variation of Bram's Cube. Bram suggested that Bram's Cube could be improved as puzzle by having six-teeth gears instead of seven, and by exposing and stickering the slider pieces that connect the gears to the cube.
