An interesting site: parametric parts.

Unfortunately not directly hooked up to Shapeways yet, but perhaps only a matter of time (and it working properly!!!).

Does anybody know if someone has made the small figurines/totems that Maximus uses to pray for his family in the Gladiator? I just think they would be great little figurines.

I'm a design student and for my dissertation I would really appreciate replies to a few questions:


Do you consider yourself to be an industrial designer?

Would you seek the services of a professional designer?

Do you design for pleasure or for profit?

Has 3D printing made you more aware of design principles, (cost/materials)?

Do you expect more interaction between the hobbyist and designer?

Thank you very much!

Op donderdag 4 april, van 16.00 tot 20.30 uur, vindt bij Saxion in Enschede een 3D-Print Event plaats in het FabLab met als thema het ABC van het 3d-printen.

Informatiemarkt, demonstraties en presentaties
Van 16.00 – 20.30 uur vindt de informatiemarkt plaats. Op de informatiemarkt krijgen bezoekers een overzicht van de 3d-printtechnieken. Professionele 3d-print bedrijven als Heijcon, CNC Speedform, 3dPrintCompany, Igepa en VDM Kunststoftechniek informeren bezoekers graag over de mogelijkheden die de technieken bieden. Ook vinden diverse demonstraties plaats. Daarnaast wordt aandacht besteed aan de software, want wat is er nodig voor het ontwerp? Zo wordt bijvoorbeeld SolidWorks gedemonstreerd door Cad2M.
Om 16.30 uur, 18.00 uur en 19.30 uur wordt een presentatie gegeven door Rene Groothedde van Rapid Manufacturing Center (RMCenter). Tijdens de presentatie wordt ingegaan op de marktontwikkelingen en worden diverse voorbeelden getoond van het professioneel gebruik van 3d-printen.

Informatie en aanmelden
Het 3D-Print Event op donderdag 4 april duurt van 16.00 tot 20.30 uur. Bezoeken van het 3D-Print Event is gratis, maar aanmelding is gewenst. Hierbij geldt vol = vol.

Science News' cover story this week is on 3DP. It's pretty good journalism I think. (If I can say that without bein' a big douche -- full disclosure I did get a mention.)

Also mentioned, and reviewed in the same issue, is Hod Lipson's new book.

I'm looking to work with a local shop that owns either an Objet, Stratasys FDM or Projet printer for quick-turn around designs. Must be located in the tri-state area.

I would use Shapeways but when I need something turned around in 1-2 days, Shapeways is not possible.

thank you.

Registration required, but otherwise its free: Prototyping Process | Choosing the best process for your project ~10 pages of info.

I found it most useful as a resource on how to choose a material. Its similar to Shapeways Materials page, but with more technical information like strength (PSI), and detailed descriptions of each print process.

Has anybody yet 3d printed in nylon filament? Is it even on the market yet? I know nylon melts at a higher temp than ABS, so not sure what's possible? Btw does nylon filament have the same material properties as sls polyamide nylon powder?

Hi all,

we just published the second edition of the Shapeways Community journal. We collected the best of your stories on the forum and social media and compiled them into a nice read. This month we're covering the Shapeways World Meetup day, an amazing collection of WWI miniature airplanes, a free PDF magazine from the Blender community focusing on 3D printing, printing Second Life jewelry, a mindblowing sculpture and a quick report of a visit by a community member to our Eindhoven facility.

We hope you'll enjoy it. If you have a suggestion for the next edition, please leave a comment!

Hi Shapesmiths,

I am relatively new here but a big fan of 3D printing, this is one revolution I want in on at ground level.
I came across these videos yesterday, while I presume many may have seen them I thought them worth sharing.
I apologize if this has been shared already but I had to make sure everyone got to see these.

Are we on the verge of 3D printed medicine, limbs, weapons, food, drugs, plants, viruses and perhaps one day even life?
These 7 short presentations from TED discuss various current and future applications for 3D printing, Its as informative and inspiring as it is scary.

I'm at the beginning of a project to design a lapel pin for a local business, but I can't find the dimensions to make the pointy section at the back that attaches to the butterfly clutch back. Does anyone have knowledge of such dimensions? Or of where to find it? I need the diameter, lengths, etc.
Thanks!

Architect plans 3D-printed buildings

"The buildings are designed to resemble a giant mobius strip - a continuous loop with only one side.

Janjaap Ruijssenaars hopes to create the buildings, which he estimates will cost 4-5 million euros (£3.3- £4.2m), all around the world.

Hello!

We just wanted to pop up with a friendly note to anyone interested in how 3D printing and technology can be used to help benefit those in developing countries around the world. You may already be aware that we held the first 3D4D Challenge late last year – a competition that aimed to find new and innovative uses for 3D printing to improve the lives of those in developing nations, with a prize of $100,000 awarded to the winning project. The Challenge helped to build discussion around 3D printing for good and we want to continue this. We have been posting links to relevant news and articles on our Twitter and Facebook pages on a daily basis, along with links to guest blog posts discussing the legacy of the 3D4D Challenge.

If you want to be inspired, to get involved in the conversation or find out more about what's happened to the winner or finalists of the first 3D4D Challenge, why don't you like our Facebook page? You can also follow us on Twitter (@3D4DChallenge)!

Hello everybody,
I am new to the community and interested in the 3D subject.
I need to build a chasis with the dimentions of 60x30x15mm. It will be used outside and should provide protection against humidity from the outside. My question is: is it possible to manufacture such a chasis within 5g of weight?
Thanks in advance for any response.

Ward Melville Heritage Organization
Spring 2013 Exhibit
Educational & Cultural Center

Dates:
Item Drop Off: Beginning February 28, 2013
Exhibit Open: March 9, 2013
Exhibit Close: April 7, 2013
Item Pick Up: April 8 – 10, 2013

The Exhibit will be open seven (7) days a week from 10am until 5pm.

The coordinator is Tarah Sabbatino, Director of the Educational and Cultural Center. There are two key-holding staff members that will also be helping curate this exhibit:

Jenna Loverro
Jessica Morgan

The overall vision of this Exhibit is to show the process of and end product of crafting a design. Whether it is furniture, musical instruments, board games or jewelry, to present the object from inception, blueprints (if applicable) and production, to the final product. The Great Room, where the Exhibit will be held, is approximately 2,300 square foot and we do have several cases available for use. We are also reaching out to local artists who utilize MakerBot 3D printers to create various goods, as well as a local Woodworker's club. Depending on the response, the Exhibit may also tell the story of traditional craftsmanship and more technologically dependent craftsmanship.

Other things you should be aware of:

So you are aware, the Great Room will host a Chamber Music program, Pro Musica on the last day of the Exhibit, April 7, 2013. For this event, we might have to move/rearrange some of the exhibit items.

We can offer consignment opportunities to whomever loans us items for the exhibit. Items that can fit in the Heritage Gift Shop can be displayed there. Items that are available for sale in the actual exhibit can be sold during the exhibit, and picked up afterwards. This is elective, not required.

Hey all,

I just wanted to ask, do you order models in Alumide?

For my purposes - pendants, rings, etc. - it seems pretty superfluous. It's comparable in price to plastic, but appears to be far weaker and less detailed (admittedly, based on the one model I've ordered in the material). I'm assuming there's an application that my own work doesn't touch on. Can anyone explain to me?

Thanks for humouring my newbie question!

We will soon be opening a physical arts, crafts and jewelry store where we would also like to exhibit 3D-printed objects and items.

The shop will be located in the heart of Moers, on the western edge of the 5 mio Ruhr agglomeration in Germany.

There, we will sell our own products, alongside with a broad variety of traditional art, handcrafted products and merchandise created by individuals and small-scale manufacturers.

We are now looking for 3D artists and designers who would like to showcase their 3D-printed designs to a broader audience and want to increase their sales. Your objects could become part of a permanent sales expo in our store.

Products in the shop will also be shown in our online gallery, helping you to cross the language barrier into another +-80 mio market.

If you are interested, please let us know, preferably through
http://www.kontorapart.de/kontakt/


Overseas artists and designers are equally welcome. We can leverage the EU presence of some of the major service providers to facilitate order handling and delivery.

I found this link where someone created a 3D printed water soluble circuit board.

Take a look:

Hi. I'm currently working on a robot hand and I'm interested in if anyone tested the strengths of wires printed in Strong and flexible?

I have a design that uses 4-3mm wires, and a Theo Jansen model that are approx 1.8mm, but that is rather hard to test without breaking. Does anyone have experience using approx 2mm wires, for push/pull uses?

Oh whilst I'm asking, anyone have practical experience of designing living hinges?

How would you deal with making items of multi-colored / swirled plastic? Has anyone here done it?

One way would be to use 3D modeling to create a one-color part, then use that to make molds.

Another way would be to use 3D modeling to make the top and bottom of the mold, "printing" in metal.
