Dear community members,

I can't show my prints to you.
I need them next week for a very important meeting with an Italian designcompany.
The quality of the prints are very good and the speed of delivery very high. Its not the first time that they even deliver within 10 working days.
I based my future as freelance designer on Shapeways.
Sofar they never let me down and are very pleasant to work with.
Choosing shapeways as a partner was one of the best choises in recent years for me

Ralph, Elena, Joris,

Thanks alot for everything.

Ok I got my model this morning
I am OK with the results but I need to tweak the mesh for better results;

Ok here is the original design I did in illustrator:
Here is the 3d mesh I build on Lightwave:

I had to clean up the data in Lightwave and Meshlab to make it waterproof:

And here is the final model:

I been researching to see what I did wrong around the face area,
and I will do another test soon.
Still the boss was impressed enought with this test.

Today my package arrived and what i saw was just wonderfull! Razz

First thing was the I.W.I.N. button (well my interpretation of it)
index.php?t=getfile&id=1120&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=1121&private=0

and one of the button separated. I noticed i could just as well make it as one piece but i wanted it to have a gap between the button and border.
index.php?t=getfile&id=1119&private=0
And naturally I'm going to color it.

and the final interesting thing is a jewelery I made to see if it was possible to make something really fragile. this is made of the strong and flexible material.

Another great Shapeways order arrived on time.

Front up - for anyone from Shapeways reading this - please do not send me replacements Smile Feedback is just FYI so you know what happened.

What happened was I ordered a lot of small tiny parts where there were 2 solids each, approximately 50% of these arrived. The parts were so small they were probably hard to find in the material.

Of the larger parts, it was odd because one of the WS&F pairs was missing too. This one was a bit larger so I don't know how that went missing. Both the Cream Robust propellers arrived safely.

Took a couple of photos and even tested the Cream Robust props in water already, works great! Thanks Shapeways. (Again don't send me replacements...... happy as it is!)

Hey hey,

Here is a pendant version as I continue to perfect the tellurian (working model of the movement of the earth and its moon). Testing it out on the pendant, makes it cheaper fr me to order multiple tries Smile

Hi Shapeways fans,

Canny Uncube is a twisty puzzle like Rubik's Cube. However, unlike Rubik's Cube, it has only five faces that turn. It is an idea by Bram Cohen.

Watch the YouTube clip.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW62COKBnDI

Buy the puzzle
http://www.shapeways.com/model/37934/canny_uncube.html

Look at the photos below.

Enjoy!

Finally got my scale model car, roughly 25cm x 10cm in size, made from a few parts to allow me to pick and choose parts.

Plenty of fun and games with 3dsmax trying to get it right, but the result is fantastic.

My next print will likely have some changes, but i'm very happy with this one

Hi Shapeways fans,

Mixup Cube is like a Rubik's Cube, but with an unexpected twist. When a mid plane is turned by 45 degrees, other turns are possible. This way of turning mixes up the center and edge pieces.

See the YouTube clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzgnpf2URhQ

Here is the Kopdenes 2 Stool, I really like this one, and Shapeways did a great job in realizing it. The first one was a bit deformed due to packaging but we fixed it, also we have now another version that is in silver color and it arrived in a big package and is in perfect condition.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Uncanny Cube is an idea of Bram Cohen. The puzzle has an uncanny resemblance with a Rubik's Cube, but it has a twist. It has only five rotation axes, one of which is at an angle of 45 degrees to the others.

Buy the puzzle in my Shapeways Shop:
http://www.shapeways.com/model/32612/uncanny_cube.html

Watch the YouTube clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uq2U6nCK5Y4

Look at some photos below.

Enjoy!

Yesterday UPS arrived with a package from one of our production facilities and delivered my cufflinks.

I was so enthusiastic about this product hat I wanted to be the first one ordering it.
It was not difficult, since I am part of the team who lounched it.

It was quite nice hat they arrived on the day my husband and I celebrate our wedding day. So I could suprise him with a nice and personal gift!!!

My signet ring arrived! It's fantastic and it works! It's only about 3 euros, so I needed to order a few. I have:

White, strong and flexible - non-subsurfed and small:

Black detail - non-subsurfed and small:
index.php?t=getfile&id=708&private=0

White detail - subsurfed and small:
index.php?t=getfile&id=709&private=0

And the best one, in my opinion, black detail, subsurfed and larger:
index.php?t=getfile&id=710&private=0
This is the only one that fits my finger. The other ones fit my girlfriend though.

And I can make a wax seal!
index.php?t=getfile&id=711&private=0
I only figured afterwards that it was the wrong way. Nobody can read it besides me anyway, it's written in Kalligrafony (http://kgf.bennokruit.nl), a sound-based alphabet.

I love it! I needed to learn blender to make it (and that was hard!), I'm going to try sketchup next. Maybe Shapeways can offer signet rings from images? Its basically like the Photoshaper but really small and on a ring.

Does anyone else want his/her name on a signet ring in Kalligrafony? Wink

- Benno

PS. I'm having trouble with uploading photos to my shop in firefox on a mac. Anyone else having trouble as well?

Hello, this morning my first print arrives!!!

It's a body and a head of my first attempt to realize an original design doll, to use in a silicone mold -> resin cast workflow.

My first objective now is to obtain a surface as smooth as possible, so i've sprayed the pieces with a layer of Tamiya gray primer (the one i use with my sculpey dolls) and tomorrow i'll start to sand them.

I want to try steel wool (4/0) and sand paper (wet&dry from 400 to 800).

I've read the great tutorial from Daddymack, very good work, thanks!

The WFS material seems quite different from the other materials i'm used to (sculpey, milliput, casting resin and epoxy), so i think i'll do a big mess with this first attempt! Laughing

I usually use Mr. Surfacer 500 & 1000, but now ran out of them and i'm waiting for a new stock from HLJ, in the meantime i'm using Tamiya Grey and White (Fine) primers, which are easier to find, and also a couple of great products.

Of course, any helps is really appreciated!!!

Greetings,
Alessino.

I just got my second shipment, and this is all stuff of my own design - my previous shipment was the cool inside out puzzle and some hollow dice. I used TopMod3d, MilkShape, and a little bit of Python to make my own stuff, and I'm mostly satisfied.

index.php?t=getfile&id=586&private=0

Above, a sphere made by subdividing an icosahedron in the center, with two puzzles scattered around.


index.php?t=getfile&id=587&private=0

Above, a puzzle found in Stewart Coffin's "Geometric Puzzle Design". I prototyped this using cardstock, and then uploaded the STL file. I found that the negative spaces in the puzzle were a little tighter than I had expected, so I'll need to do some sanding to make the pieces fit together.

index.php?t=getfile&id=588&private=0

Above, another Coffin puzzle. I used Milkshape to create the model for this, and just ran off 6 copies of it. I also prototyped this one with cardstock, and was awfully pleased with how the cardstock puzzle turned out. I was a little disappointed to find that one of the six seemed to have a bubble or other problem in printing - the nearest corner of the bottommost piece here is misshapen.

index.php?t=getfile&id=589&private=0

A closer look at the misshapen piece - the piece on the left has a lump on one side of the bottom prong and a hollow on the other side (which is curiously smooth, which I've not seen with the White, Strong, and Flexible material). As a reference, the piece on the right was printed correctly from the same pattern.


I consider this a mixed success - I'm learning about the capabilities of the technology, which is good, but neither of the puzzles can be solved right out of the box. That's a little disappointing. The sphere is cool to bounce around - it's a little bigger than a golf ball, and kind of feels like a ping-pong ball.

Hooray! I received three things recently! The first two were gifts for my brother, Bathsheba Grossman's gyroid, which is absolutely gorgeous.
http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u164/Ushanka/gyroid.jpg
Sorry about the low quality, but I needed to share the excitement!

Second is a dodecadodecahedron of my own design. Again, apologies for the poor picture quality.

The third thing was a treat for myeslf, a Besselheim Plate. This is perhaps my favorite apparatus from the incredible pseudoscience program "Look Around You". Hooray!

It arrived!

Here are pictures of a few sculptures available in my shop (thehumanhive).

First, a level 2 sponge. Nothing fancy. Fairly inexpensive. They do require some cleaning to remove loose power from the 2mm holes.
index.php?t=getfile&id=550&private=0

Second, a torus with a M÷bius-like "twist". The model is cut in half all the way around but remains a single surface.
index.php?t=getfile&id=551&private=0

And, third, a compound of five tetrahedra. I love this model. It is large (baseball-ish) and the sharp edges print very nicely.

Found out I got this late yesterday while leaving work.

I enjoyed one of the two all evening, showing it off, discussing it with friends, wondering what color to make it. Night falls, my nite-light is a blacklight, and I realize that compared to every other white in the room, wsf is pale. It does not reflect. No idea if this is texture or material related..

So today, I fixed that:

After spending too many hours fixing the unfindable inverted normals issues they arrived yesterday...my cars! I'll have to have a little more patience for the metal version though Smile.

Unfortunately they did not all came out as nice because of the printing orientation. But I'll take it.

The pantograph in the last picture is very small and ended up rougher than I hoped, but this is a learning exercise. (13mm long)

Can we attached more files per message please Smile

Just a small simple print I did as a result of fiddling with my caliper next to my bed (don't know why it was there...).

Just got my second version of my Nu model in yesterday (design page: http://www.shapeways.com/model/11748/nu_at_rest__collada_.ht ml) and I'm pleased to report that it arrived safe and sound and came out extremely well.

The first Nu had its arms outstretched because I had planned on casting it in a soft flexible rubber with an armature that would allow the arms and legs to be bent to any position. That also happened to throw its center of balance off a wee bit and as a result it would tip over if not carefully placed. With the arms down and a minor adjustment to the feet, it is now able to stand freely and will make a nice addition to my Shapeways shop.

The white detail material has a very nice satin finish to it and absorbs a good amount of light to give it a soft translucent appearance from the sub-surface scattering.


The other object in this order is an oil drum that 'll be making a mold of to pour oil drum-shaped candles. Once that's done I can turn it upside down and use it as a pen holder. I also made a version with a top that pops off and a half-height drum. The only thing left to do is test if it the lid fits tightly in the top.

The oil drum was printed in the SWF material and for the most part looks great. There's hardly any fine detail in the object, but aside from the gritty texture I find that the resolution is appropriate for geometric objects like this.

In picture 4 you can see the artifacts from the orientation of the oil drum during printing. I can probably lightly sand that away, but I think spraying it with clear acrylic should cover it up well enough.

One thing I like about SWF is that it feels very sturdy and durable, and is opaque. I haven't tried yet, but it looks like it is easy to paint.

I brushed the model with acrylic cement (methyl methacrylate) but it either doesn't have the same effect as cyanoacrylate or I can't tell the difference if it does. The walls are 1-2 mm thick and it seems plenty strong as is, so I'll try out superglue when I'm done with it.


[UPDATE: If you saw my SWF material testing video here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NbnrTVO0vI I tried bending it that way after applying and letting dry the methyl methacrylate and it snapped right in half. So it makes it more rigid and less flexible.]

Hi,

My first object arrived. A nearly exact copy of my astral body.

I did this in to parts, the hairs are a seperat object with a pin in the center, therefor i bolted a hole in my cute backhead. Sadly i messed up alittle with the size so i can't get the hairs completly onto the body.

Nevertheless i love my self.

And from now on i play borad games with my personalized pawn.

Next thing todo ... pawning my family... although I am not so sure if they are that lucky if the end up looking something like this one.

My sculpture arrived a while back but I've been traveling and then busy with work stuff (Buy Left 4 Dead, it pays my bills).

Anyway, it turned out great! Any detail that's in the model is there in the final product, the lines are sharp and well defined. I took a few photos and added them to the design page.

http://www.shapeways.com/model/5644/miss_noodle.html

The material is interesting, it's essentially white plastic but it has a "wood grain" appearance on some surfaces (anything rounded and near horizontal, like the top of the head and the right elbow) and a "frosted" texture with subtle horizontal lines on others. The tapered stand looks like it's made of thin, stacked disks. I think it was fabricated in an upright position (as uploaded). If I were to paint this, I'd sand it first and/or use multiple coats with sanding in between.

The whole thing seems very robust, it would probably be just fine designing with 1mm minimum thickness instead of the 2mm that I used as a guide. When I have some free time I'll do more experiments.

I have been ordering the same Polished Nickel Steel Model since November. Over 50 of these same models @ 16.75 each. I have noticed that in the last month the Polished Nickel Steel is not as polished and shiny as it used to be when it arrived. The build up that I have to remove from the crevices of the model with a pick has also increased. I have contacted support with two separate incidents about it and I am getting answers like "sorry for the inconvenience" etc. I just want to know if the process has been modified in the last month or two for the Polished Nickel Steel and if it has, when it will be put back to the way it was. I already know something has changed. It's visible in my photos and I have never had a defect until this last month. I just want some confirmation here so I can start shopping around for other options if that's what I need to do. I want my models to be how they were in Nov-Mar again! What happened??!!!!

The polishing step for WSF seems like a good opportunity for parts to get mixed up. How are similar looking parts kept track of when their slight differences are specific to each customer?

Thanks!
