Hi, am a game professor and chair faith base games at IEEE Game Innovation and Asia Game Show (volunteer). I am in need of someone that knows how to do texture art and include on some 3D models that has been done for me by an awesome famed toy designer. These 3D models are part of a Faith Base game design to display at the upcoming Asia Game Show Hong Kong. If interested, I can promote you and even provide information to my game students. Let me know. Warm regards.

Hi everyone,

To anyone handy with 3D design, I'm looking to develop a Speedway rider character in the subbuteo style for a game I am putting together, detailing wouldn't be too heavy just a basic bike shape and rider with helmet and goggles (I will supply images/sketches of exactly what I mean).

Please PM me with an idea of cost and we can discuss further.

Many thanks
Alan

I need this model to be prepped for printing - it's a hell of a mess!! I need this done right away and will pay $80 - If it makes it easier you can split the parts and decimate the crap out of it, keep in mind that the final piece will measure around 5 inches (I don't want to see polygon edges) you can get rid of all interior details that are not seen.


here is the link to the file: http://www.yourfilelink.com/get.php?fid=579741

If you think you can get this finished within the next 24 hours email me at sean.dabbs@hotmail.com

I work here
Hey fellow Shappies,

Recently there was a comment on people looking for work in the Modelers needed section. Shapeways felt it was a valid point that Modelers for Hire should have their own section.

So seeing we now have the new Modelers for Hire section, I have moved all Modelers for Hire from the first page of the Modelers Needed section over to the Modelers for Hire section.

From now on, if you'd like to offer your services post in the Modelers for Hire section
http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=thread&frm_id =98&S=55537894498f749474987deacfbb4930
and follow the guidelines Bart has set up for that section.

For those looking for help, continue to post here and one of your fellow helpful Shappies will contact you, or search through the new section to see if someone there has the skill set and price already set up that you are looking for.

Thanks,
Mike

Morning everyone-

First-time shaper here. I've got a fairly simple model that I made in SketchUp, which I'm trying to have printed as part of a gift for my sister. I took pains to build it soundly and responsibly, but apparently it wasn't enough - non-manifold errors, of course. It should be a simple fix, would anyone like to take a look at it?

I've attached an exported DAE, but of course could also send native SKP.

Thanks in advance,
joe

I need someone to 3D model some stuff for a small Shapeways project we are doing. There won't be exposure for you connected to it nor will there be models that you then may be able to sell. I also can not pay cash but I can compensate you in Shapeways coupons. email me at joris@shapeways if this is something for you.

Hello people, I'm a typographer by trade but know some basic Cinema 4D. I've created a pretty simple model of some extruded text but have no idea how to correct the errors now I have uploaded it.

Pretty sure it's nothing more than a ten minute job for someone who know about this kind of thing. Anyone willing to take a look?

Perhaps I can trade you one of my prints or something as a thank you?

Hello,

I am a character modeler using zbrush and maya. I found this site a few weeks ago, and am thrilled to have joined the community. If anyone needs a model, help with a model, or needs shelling, feel free to contact me. I will price fairly depending on the complexity of the project, and of course what the artist is willing to spend.

I am attaching an image of my latest project where I worked on an 8". Initially the character was around $344.00, and after shelling got it down to $34.65.

I am an independent graphic designer who is starting my own clothing & accessory line called Fresh St. Apparel. I am looking for a skilled jewelry maker to do limited number quantities of rings, necklace pendants, belt buckles and possibly some charms. If all works out, I plan to grow my line from these designs that would give you a lot of business. I want to work with a skilled individual who works closely with my line.

Here's a sample of our logo to give you an idea of what we're working with: http://www.FreshST.com

So what I'm thinking, to start things off, is to get a necklace pendant created of just the logo...in black. I'm not really sure what material to use...something inexpensive yet will last. I'm also thinking of getting a logo ring to match as a set (also in black) which will go on (2) fingers at a time.

Here are a few examples of what I'm looking for:

LOGO NECKLACE: http://www.karmaloop.com/products.aspx?ProductID=64274&V endorCode=KRW

OTHER NECKLACE: http://www.karmaloop.com/products.aspx?ProductID=65138&V endorCode=SUP

BELT BUCKLE: http://www.karmaloop.com/products.aspx?ProductID=72939&V endorCode=KRW

If you could send me a quote at your earliest convenience I would appreciate it greatly.

Thanks for you 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

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'm usually happy with Shapeways full color printing services but my recent order arrived with some issues.

As you can see below, the final product ended up more grainy and details were lost compared to the FCS preview.
http://i.imgur.com/6sassq7.png

Picture below shows sample of my previous order. As you can see the final version turns out to be a near exact of the preview and I'm very happy for that.
http://i.imgur.com/jihGfNG.png

Now I suspect the issue with my recent order is related to the fact that I ordered them along with a Full Color Plastic model as test - perhaps they use a new printer?

A report with the question above was submitted but they did not gave me an answer or offered me a refund. I've been a happy Shapeways customer but I can't help but feel disappointed with this experience.

After waiting for 3 weeks, all items have arrived. Aside from the Boo, I've also printed my city concept, sniper rifle as well as the space ship. Sucks my space ship didn't turn out as expected, should have picked WSF instead of metallic plastic. The sniper rifle looks pretty good in metallic plastic though as I can still see some of the details. The city concept is ok as well in WSF!

What do you guys think?

Finally got my first batch of 3d printed items. The other ones are being cleaned right now. Boo is printed using color sandstone. The Lego clone trooper is for size reference. This is so cool!

A red barn printed in polished red strong and flexible. We couldn't be happier with the results. Kudos to my loving wife who took the great pictures. For reference, the barn is about 4.3cm tall and 5.5cm long.

Below is a picture of the front. The details of the door and the horizontal tracks for the door to open turned out great. (The doors don't actually open).

Below is a picture of the side. The details of the windows and the roof turned out great as well.

Here is a picture of the back of the barn, open so small animals or what not can be placed inside.

Here is the Shapeways render of the barn. The final product came out looking very close to the render.

We just received these 2 pieces in full color plastic. They are meant for use in the popular board game Pandemic. In the past we have purchased them in white strong and flexible and painted them, but I decided to see how they would look in full color plastic. The models were made in ViaCad9 and exported as .WRL (VRML).

Below is a picture from right out of the box. The models had a fair amount of white dust on them. The base is supposed to be green and the top embossed symbol black. The black coloring fades to gray/white on the extremes of the symbol. Where the biohazard symbol gets thinner at the edge of the model, it becomes very brittle. I'm guessing this is caused by the heat curing. The full color plastic model checker did indicate a yellow caution for thin walls where the piece is brittle. However, this model made with strong and flexible plastic has no issues in the thinner parts.

Here is an image after we used a tooth brush to clean off the remaining white dust. You can see there are still white spots on both the black and green parts of the pieces, that seem to be included in how it was colored.

Here is a picture of them printed in white strong and flexible and then painted using water based acrylics. Please excuse my mediocre painting skills...

Below is Shapeways rendering for Full Color Sandstone of the model.

Bottom line, we were not happy with the results of the full color plastic prints. The colors did not turn out vibrant and the brittle edges make me wary that they would stand up well to constant use with the board game. The material feels rougher to the touch than unpolished white strong and flexible. We will probably stick with painting when more than 1 color is needed in a model for now.
