Hi Shapeways fans,

Over The Top is a world-record 17x17x17 Rubik's Cube. It makes quite pretty patterns. It can take many, many hours to solve.

Watch the YouTube video.
Have a look at the inside of this puzzle.

Enjoy!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Get Stuck Cube is a puzzle with an unusual challenge: the goal is to get stuck! The puzzle has a set of sliding pieces, sliding on the surface of a Rubik's Cube. Six of the sliding pieces are double size. They act like a movable bandage. As a Rubik's Cube has six turning faces, it should be possible to block each turn and to get stuck.

Watch the YouTube video.

Half Persian 4 in 1 chain maille sampler

I originally made some of this chain using real coloured aluminium wire (coiled and cut to make the rings) to get my head around how the rings are linked together. Making the chain in RL took minutes to master, figuring out the size, aspect ratio, angles and spacing suitable for 3D printing took hours.

http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/chain-maille/images/hp4in1-large-rings-vs-homemade-sml.jpg
Larger image here

The model for the large version has about 0.4mm spacing between the rings.

http://www.stop4stuff.com/shapeways/chain-maille/images/hp4in1-large-rings-scale-sml.jpg
Larger image here

Just to see if it would work out or if they would get fused, I scaled the large version down by 55% - the spacing between the rings is just 0.22mm in the model. The large rings are 1.8mm wire and 9.9mm ID, the small rings are 1mm wire and 5.5mm ID, both have an aspect ratio of 5.5

And close up the small rings in all their 'as printed' glory Smile

Yay, *Forum Title*
3rd Order, and continually wanting more!
I had 3 Model Rides printed that I only ordered about 8 working days ago, so again, a good service by ShapeWays!
They are N Scale Model Fair Rides, scale is 2mm to the foot.
On with some photos!

Fun House, 50ft wide..It's only a frame, to save on costs, I'll PlastiCard it later:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6867&private=0

Dodgems... 40ft x 60ft track, Again just frame:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6868&private=0

And a close-up of 1 of the 16 Cars:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6869&private=0
They are too small scale wise, but I'll redo them later, they measure about 11.5mm x 7mm x 5mm, I was way out with the scale sizes, as wanted to get them to look right first, which took some time, but I got a basic recognisable Dodgem Car shape.

And finally, an overall view of them all...
index.php?t=getfile&id=6870&private=0
Also shows the Cars for the Dodgem set, the Laser Cut Challenger Kit, & The Log track, which I made only as the channels, because we can easily make the framework for it, and in the photo, it is propped up by a piece of Mountboard. The Log Channels aren't deep enough at all, so I may print another one after some basic alterations.
The Challenger looks tiny compared to the others, but scale wise, it is fairly correct, and can probably hold the 36 capacity, but the base would look alot better if it was risen at the back, and when the Chequer Plating goes on (More PlastiCard).

All models, bar the Challenger, were Printed in WSF.
Thanks for looking,
Tom.

This actually arrived a while ago, but with Valentine's Day coming up, I thought this was a good time to show it off. I had it printed in WSF and coated it with a red sparkly nail polish. (I also gave it a coat of Future floor polish initially, which I think made the nail polish a bit harder to apply evenly, unfortunately.)

I'm sorry that the photo isn't very good. I'm not much of a photographer, and my camera isn't up to much anyway (or at least not closeups).

Hi Shapeways fans,

Sliding Cube is a 2x2x2 cube with 23 tiles sliding around the cube. As the square tiles can slide over edges, they can change orientation. This makes it harder to solve than regular two-dimensional sliding-piece puzzles.

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

My SporKnife arrived! I designed it from a spork / knife I bought at a store. This was mainly just a project to fine tune my skills in Inventor. I was going to get it in Stainless but, I couldn't convince myself to buy an eating utensil for more than $50... Shocked

Material: Transparent Detail
Thickness: ~2mm

Here are some pictures that compare the two objects. Enjoy Very Happy

So I get an email, saying my order is to be delivered today, I think, wow, that was quick, just less than a week, and I see the UPS Van pull up outside, get all excited, and eventually open my package...Wow, they're better than I expected, considering the size!

I modelled basic detailed N Gauge/Scale Portaloos, or Portable Toilets, whatever you like to call them in White, Strong & Flexible.
They are in Blocks of Four, and there are Twelve of these, bringing a total of 48 Portaloos.
The Blocks are made up of 8mm x 8mm squares, with a wall thickness of 1mm on the front, and 0.8mm on the other 3 sides. They are 14mm High, and have a curve with a peak of 0.8mm on the top.
The Basic detailing is 2 squares on either side, that are extruded 0.2mm, and these show up quite well.
There is also a frame like detail on the front that is again, extruded 0.2mm, and shows up quite well.
Because each Portaloo has 0.2mm extruded surfaces on each side, in their blocks, I positioned them so they touch, which gives them a clearance of 0.4mm between the sides, and this did fuse the Sides together, but it's not a problem, as they look alrite, and with a swipe of a blade, they divide and the gap opens, to make them look better.
On with some photos!

This is one Block of Four, which is laid down on it's back:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6736&private=0

Attempt(Quite hard to focus the camera on something that small!) at showing the Basic Detailing on the Front, and how they line up:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6737&private=0

And an overview of roughly how they will be used, on a N Gauge(2mm/ft) Model Steam Fair Layout:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6738&private=0

All in all, for my second ShapeWays order, its been great, the first model I made myself, and first time I'v used WSF, & am very happy with the results, & will order some more N Gauge models very soon.
Thanks for reading,
Check out what I have for sale,
Tom.

Both of these I wanted to order a while ago, just never got to it. My first flicka fit perfectly, but these 2 seem to be slightly too small, so I'll have to modify my flickas. But they still deserve to be introduced. The gimp flicka (inspired by the film pulp fiction). Awesome except the base is slightly too tight for it to slide all the way on. And the shark attack flicka (inspired by the film Jaws of course). Also came out great, but being slighly too small it doesn't sit on a lighter right.

index.php?t=getfile&id=6729&private=0

As always my photography is awesome Razz on my daughters princess table

Also got a few other items, 2 of them I need to buy a couple cans of soda to test, and the other is a secrete so I can't share it just yet. Put it came out GREAT.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Mixup 3x3x4 is a 3x3x4 twisty puzzle of which all centers and edges can be interchanged. This results in some unexpected shape shifting. Sixteen small wedge pieces are visible at the outside. These guide the turning of the middle slices.

Watch the YouTube video.

These started off with a request from a friend to make a metal pendant model of the Flugel Horn for a family member ('R') as a gift. Both my daughter and R play in the same brass band, my daughter plays the Baritone Horn (Besson BE757). Both models in WSF have a small amount of 'artistic license' to conform to the design rules and are approx 1/12th scale.

The WSF models are a stepping stone towards the final stainless prints, which to keep them at about the same size will have alot more 'artistic license' to make them printable Wink

The edges are square cross section beams rather than cylinders and miter join at the vertices. Although as the models are only 5cm in WSF is not that easy to see.

Hey guys!

New to the 3d printing world. Thought I'd share something I had made for my girlfriend whom loves Alkaline Trio and Christmas Ornaments.

My good friend Paul aka ROBO3687 3d modeled this for me. I then had it 3d printed.

Here is a pic. Let me know what you all think.

I recently had some of my Harry Potter pendants arrive. They were inspired by the pendant seen in the latest installment of the HP saga; Deathly Hallows. After watching the movie I came out of the theatre with my wife and son and said to them "I guess you know what my next pendant is going to be, don't you!?" Their response involved some eye-rolling Confused

I wanted to make mine a little different to others I have seen, though, and custom designed a bail to hold the pendant that included the letters HP in the style seen on the movie posters.

After some very frustrating errors because of the letters I finally got the design accepted.

Below are the pendants in stainless steel, with a close-up, and the coloured versions still in their packaging.

Hi all.
This is my first ShapeWays Model Print.
I have been toying with small models to get printed, but this one is a gift, so it was a good reason to order it.
It is a Custom Dog Tag, modelled by "Mathijs van beers" , who did a great job, and I recommend them.
This is the front picture:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6411&private=0

And this is what's on the back:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6412&private=0
(Both photos were taken, whilst the Tag was still in it's plastic bag)

So, to sum up, I've had a good first Print from ShapeWays, and I look forward to Printing some more in the future.
Again thanks to "Mathijs van beers" for modelling and SW to printing, and brining my idea to life.
Thanks,
Tom.

Having gained new skills in modelling since my first faltering steps i decided to redo my Earth Defence Fleet Ships.
They arrived yesterday and i couldn't be happier with the way they came out.
Picture quality could be better but it gets the point across. my camera has issues with small objects so the Destroyer and Fighter are not as clear as the Battleship and Cruiser

This is a brand new puzzle that emerged from my experiments with creating interlocked tetrahedrons.
The two identical pieces are vaguely tetrahedral in shape and each piece has 180 degree rotational symmetry. The two pieces can be combined in a non-symmetrical fashion to fit inside a 7x7x7 cube outline.

This Universal Equinoctial Ring Dial 2 is an improved version of a previous one (web, forum).
Now it's fully modular so you can purchase individual parts as replacements or in case of future revisions. This also has allowed to stiffen the movements of the parts because no clearance is needed.

The slider part has been fully remodelled and a little the central bar. The eyelet now has two internal tubes to avoid loosening. The two rings have only changed in the hinge zones.

As in the previous version, the model was dyed with cold tea and the marks painted with black ink. The slider and some zones of the other parts are more yellow because they weren't inked.

Yay my first metal arrival from shapeways!
The 'gold plated glossy' has a rich orange-ish colour that I like.

I made a youtube video for this product too

Although some of you out there have ordered them already, I've finally received and photographed my Designer SnowBauble ornament, shown here with a custom "Baby's First Christmas" inscription:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6153&private=0

When ordering, customers choose the shape that hangs inside as well as the text placed on it. As you can see, the "white, strong, and flexible" material has fantastic light properties that are taken full advantage of--I'm very happy with how it turned out! It's even sturdier than I expected, and makes an excellent Christmas tree decoration:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6154&private=0


Here's how the ornament looks with different colours of Christmas tree lights behind it:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6155&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=6156&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=6157&private=0



The texture of the nylon is perfect--very snowlike. But I'm sure it would be beautiful in any of the dyed colours as well--only one way to find out. There's still time to order one before Christmas Wink !!!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Arrow Planet is a twisty puzzle with 52 arrowed squares moving around a sphere. But also the sphere parts can turn. This puzzle combines jumbling, fudging and sliding.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

For those of you with Ultimate Desk Toys, or those who will have them soon--some new accessories for you to drool over.


First, there is the unique outline globe which balances from the upper perch of the Ultimate Desk Toy's stand:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6039&private=0


This piece has been offered for a while, but only on faith of my design abilities since I hadn't had the chance to print it yet. Now that I have it, I am considering offering it in a larger stand-alone design because I love the look produced by printing only the shoreline and continental shelves of the continents:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6040&private=0


Then, there is the brand new Short Floater/Spinner which spins beautifully on the Ultimate Desk Toy's upper perch:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6041&private=0


As shown in the teaser, the Short Floater/Spinner can also spin while dangling from a neodymium magnet (not included). My record so far is 3 minutes and 13 seconds of spin, but surely you can do better! The careful positioning of the center of mass allows the spinner to hold a significant list while spinning, and to convert desk vibrations into both rocking and rotating motion when dangling from a magnet, similar to a rattleback.
index.php?t=getfile&id=6042&private=0



The second stand appearing in the photos is a bronze glossy copy demonstrating the Ultimate Desk Toy's lefty-friendly configuration. If it's going to be custom-made, it might as well be perfectly matched to you!
index.php?t=getfile&id=6043&private=0


The stand sells for $35 customised and shipped, or together with a toy of your choice for $50. Toys are $25 a piece.

Lots more stainless steel goodness!
(l/h = left hand, r/h = right hand)

All can be used as charm bracelet beads or an earring.

Lastly, see if you can spot the difference.

All three were supposed to be the same right hand spiral as the left hand spiral ones are in a seperate order.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Mixup 2x3x3 was suggested by Eric Vergo. It is a 2x3x3 twisty puzzle, similar to the classic "Rubik's Domino" puzzle. However, this puzzle has an additional twist, which allows it to be turned to strange shapes.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Twisty Puzzles Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!
