Hi Shapeways fans,

Rototribute is a tribute to David Pitchers award-winning Rotoprism 2 puzzle. The two puzzles look the same and both puzzles jumble. However, whereas Dave's implementation has three axes and uses deeper-than-origin cuts, this version by Oskar has nine axes and regular shallow cuts. The differences become apparent when scrambling the puzzle. Each puzzle has moves that are blocked in the other puzzle.

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

Hey everyone,

presenting my next 3D Relief Micro-Painting in my 3D History line.

One of the most powerful and impressive nuclear detonations of all time: The French 'Licorne' (Unicorn) Thermonuclear test of 1970 with a yield of 914 kilotons.
This particular item is designed is such a way, that bright back-lighting will enhance the visual impression of the painting.

The steampunk-styled Android figure I designed in Blender just arrived from Shapeways. All the little details came out great. Even the little gears came our perfect; I was worried the details would just get merged during printing. The colors are nice and bright. The figure is about 10cm high. I think I will put this one in my store.

Hello,

I recently received my fourth Shapeways order, which I am very happy with. I got four items:
Gyro the Cube
Micro Square-1
Snub 24 Cell
and one prototype of my own design, for a school art project:
M. C. Escher Sphere

index.php?t=getfile&id=33207&private=0

They all turned out very well and I am happy. The Escher Sphere is now available on my shop.

Hi there,
first post here, and first public object on Shapeways !

http://www.shapeways.com/model/1078860/struct-20.html

I've tried a number of procedural random shapes over the last months, and this one is the first I'm really happy about Smile

I used Blender and a custom Python program. It's pretty light and cheap !

With this I was testing out a system for toy building blocks I had come up with a while ago. Wanted to see if it actually worked the way I had imagined and... it actually came out alright! The material thickness limitations make it quite large in scale but the concept works. I might need to make the parts fit together a little more tightly as they tend to wear down a little with use. My kids had fun playing with these blocks since they are really easy to assemble into a little space ship or a gun or letters. I just wish I had more to build a castle with... but it's just a little too expensive still Smile

I designed a steampunk-styled fish using Blender and the 3D sandstone print just arrived from Shapeways. Somehow, I messed up the colors so some of the parts came out white. But I'm very impressed with the detail of the 3D print, especially the propellor.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Danger Cube is a more dangerous version of Caution Cube, with more and sharper gears. The outer gears are similar to Timur Evbatyrov's Gear Corner Turning Octahedron. The inner mechanism was cloned from Geared Mixup. This means that all center gears and edge gears can be interchanged.

Continuing with my experiments I modified the 3D model for a better fit to the watch case. It now fits exactly. It couldn't fit better if manufactured by Casio itself. The new stainless print has a very precise fit. Not only that but Shapeways also moved the sprue to the end where it's much easier to grind off. The previous stainless print had the sprue on the curved side which didn't look to good. (I'm fussy about detail) I also printed a couple colored WSF covers which came out quite nice. I'm very very happy with the results.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Spider Gear was suggested by Bram Cohen and named by José. A ball with holes is contained by a cage and six pointy gears. When the ball is turned then the gears follow. Both the ball and the gears are bi-colored. The object of the puzzle is to turn the ball such that it ends up upside down, while the gears are returned to their original position.

They arrived in good health, though they only have one side and one edge. (Sounds like a geometric amputee.) One is in White Strong Flexible, one in polished White Strong Flexible, and one in White Detail.

The boss was impressed enough to commission the printing of a technical model for sales & marketing of one of our industrial products.

Yay, Shapeways!

Hey All,

Here are a couple of designs I created to add your own flair to a Phiten necklace. This simple design has a charm ring and clips that connect between the Phiten clips.

The first is a straight forward design with clips straight across from one another. The second is an angled designed and can be doubled up to create a dual, charm design effect.

Way much better than those old fashioned ones! Already received much compliments, lots of friens noticed it and want one for themselves!

I am not sure how to promote this model to the target group though.

Please tell me what you think of it and if you know any places to promote this model!

Printed in premium silver. Not cheap but the surface finish is superb. The entire piece is very thin, but it should strong enough for 3D printing. The shape is modeled using subdivision surface and one boolean operation to make the hole. All is done in blender.

Hi Guy's,

I'm super excited about this "Aventador" inspired Raspberry Pi case. It was great fun to design and I hope everyone likes it as much as we do! It is only 1 piece but requires the newer Pi motherboard with the two locating holes. It features a wall mount slot and can be stacked!

Hey Everyone,

The Car Antenna Snitch has taken flight.

After a few weeks my antenna snitch prototype is still hanging in strong and working perfectly. It has endured hot weather, windy weather, hard rain and has performed through it all.

In the video link below you will see the snitch start to rise up the antenna at about 35 MPH and then shoot to the top at about 50-55 MPH where it hangs on.

Thanks to my daughter for sitting in the back seat of my tiny car to film this.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Irreversible Cube is based on an idea by Christoph Lohe:
"It is just a 2x2x2 Cube, however, with the following constrains:
- only clockwise quarter turns are allowed
- after a turn on one axis (out of three), the next move, if any, will need to be done on another axis
Obviously, it is not a normal twisty puzzle as you cannot simply reverse your move sequence. It also means: the puzzle is already scrambled after a first single move from the solved state."

So if we encode
"U" = upper face 90 degrees clockwise
"F" = front face 90 degrees clockwise
"L" = left face 90 degrees clockwise
then one could legally turn e.g. "UFLUFLULUFLUFLUL" as all turns are clockwise and there are no two-same-turns-in-a-row. However, "FF" would be illegal and the second "F" move should be blocked.

Irreversible Cube exactly achieves Chris Lohe's goal. There are only single clockwise quarter turns, and any second quarter turn is blocked, only to be unlocked when another face is turned 90-degrees clockwise.

Note that the puzzle has no easy undos. Once a quarter turn clockwise has been made, one cannot undo it by turning anti-clockwise. Anti-clockwise turns are blocked by the mechanism.

Analysing the mechanism, the follow steps happen when turning a face clockwise.
1) First the turning face locks itself against turning back to it original position. From this point, one can only move forward.
2) Next the turning face unlocks the previously locked adjacent face.
3) Then, the turning face locks itself against turning back to the adjacent-faces-unlocking state.
4) Finally, the turning face blocks. Now it can only be unlocked by turning an adjacent face.

The ring:

With gold rub'n'buff applied:

Some back-story:
My ongoing fascination with Celtic knots has often made me think about the physical realities of knot patterns. I've previously explored making knots out of clay, and tying Chinese knots to explore this idea.

When I was little, my big sister brought home some Turkish puzzle rings. They were pretty and confounding. I never really got the hang of how to solve them! But when I found Shapeways, I knew i wanted to have a go at making my own puzzle rings.

My first attempt at the idea was a perfect intertwining of over-and-under loops.
http://ale.chenonetta.com/stuff/3D/firstattempt.jpg

My rusty 3D modeling skills meant that progress was slow... so it came with a slow and crushing realisation that this design wouldn't come apart and function as a puzzle ring in the way I'd imagined.

The next step was to do some research into how puzzle rings are constructed and how they're solved. I learned that unlike Celtic knots, puzzle rings don't follow a convention in the way that the loops alternate over- and under-lapping. One loop may go over two other loops before passing under the next.

Armed with this knowledge, I modeled the next version of the puzzle ring.
http://ale.chenonetta.com/stuff/3D/fakeoverlaps.jpg

And then came the problem of unraveling these interlocked pieces to ensure that they would print properly. I tried very hard to follow how the loops would remain loooped through each other when jiggled loose. Here's what I submitted to Shapeways for printing:
http://ale.chenonetta.com/stuff/3D/forprint.jpg

A few weeks later, they arrived! I got the scissors and glue out, expecting that I'd be too incompetent to solve the rings the normal way. I also suspected that I'd gotten the loops wrong (I had). As it turns out, once the loops are correctly hooked through one another, it's not too hard to solve the ring. The white S&F was a little bit too flimsy, but the black worked quite well, and I'm hoping to do some metal prints next.

Thanks for reading about my little project! I'm working on some other Celtic-knot inspired jewellery as well (including less confusing rings), so I hope to be able to share those with you soon.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Deeper Madness is a deeper-cut version of More Madness. It has a "deeper-than-deep-origin" mechanism, like Dave Pitcher's award-winning Rotoprism 2. Deeper Madness is a face-turning puzzle with six screws under the six turning faces. Starting from a screw, the associated visible cut at the surface is more than 90 degrees away.

Deeper Madness also answers Dave Pitcher's question whether a puzzle with a deeper-than-origin-cut mechanism can be solid. This puzzle shows that it can. Notice that there is still a controversy about what constitutes a deeper-than-origin-cut mechanism.

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

Hi everybody !

I received my model of the iconic skateboard from the 70´s (Penny or plastic Board) a couple of weeks ago.
I am using it as keyring and it looks great. The details are really good for a 6,5 cm model.
Next step is silver Surprised

Thanks Shapeways !

Got my pendants today - these are a result if me experimenting with 2D design. The 'rope' motif is simply some beziers rendered via Shapeways image popper; the rectangular motif an abstraction inspired by my iPad...
