"It arrived", Some time ago!

But I've only just got around to posting some images.

Here's a small keepsake my daughter made for a friends wedding.

I think this is the sort of thing Shapeways have in mind with the 'Co-Creator Platform'. Personalised items that you wouldn't have in your shop for general sale (as no-one else would want it).

My second shapeways pieces, this time in white glaze. Came out nice. Smooth finish, but surfaces were not as smooth/flat as I imagined. Layers are still very visible, and it's a bit... blobby.

Overall I am very pleased.

I was going to try dying it, and see a lot of US users recommend RIT multi-purpose dyes. Does anyone know if there is a UK equivalent product? Dylon are the big dye brand name here, and probably the only one, actually. I suppose I should look to try and find a dye rated for man made fibres.

Dewy arrived in super fast time here in Melbourne Australia.

Excellent detail from Shapeways (unfortunately blurred by my camera phone and dubious photo taking skills below).

The material is very easy to paint on. It's been many years since I painted anything 3d (last thing was a Disney plaster model as a kid), so this was a hopeful experiment on my behalf.

And yes, despite the lard, he stands. If you think this guy is ugly, wait until you see the creature he's firing at.

After some wrestling with the minimum wall thickness, I got my 1:500 scale Bowshock starfighter (should work okay with Star Wars space battles minis) and a 1:1000 scale space yacht today. I had gotten the fighter printed in 1:1000 scale from printapart a few weeks ago and while it was correct, it was too small at that scale for handling in a tabletop gaming situation. I scaled that up and printed it here and I am pleased with the results. The space yacht printed fine the first time, but then it's a pretty solid simple shape overall. I've got the flight stand holes nailed down pretty well too now. Smile

Received my first order today. I sent off two versions of the same pendant to just get an idea what the final version would look like.

index.php?t=getfile&id=1498&private=0

Its rather small (3cm) , but you can see what its supposed to look like, and what came out of the machine. Over all, I'm fairly happy, I have to make the fine details wider and more distinct on the final product.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Connected Cubes 2x2x2 are two 2x2x2 Rubik's Cubes that are connected by a gearing mechanism. This way, if you turn one of the faces of one cube, a face of the other cube follows.

Watch the YouTube clip:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e87slW-jP2s

Buy the puzzle:

Look at the photos below.

Enjoy!

This is a new puzzle which uses pieces that are joined spheres. There are four puzzle pieces, and the goal is to assemble them into an octahedron (below). Looking at the pieces, this does not look possible! Three of the pieces are shaped like screws, and the fourth looks like a Y.

index.php?t=getfile&id=1385&private=0

This puzzle seems actually to be not that difficult, but perhaps I am biased. It is rather surprising that the final pieces interlock, meaning that the whole puzzle holds itself together. I have been unable to successfully assemble this puzzle when made out of wood, it breaks. However WSF comes to the rescue, and with a little flex and force, the final piece pops into place. For this reason the puzzle cannot be ordered made from any other material.

These pieces are hollow. The spheres are 12mm in diameter and the walls are only 1mm thick. I had to put in some holes, and I decided to put in more than necessary. Some people like the look of these "holey pieces", others do not. The next photo shows some other puzzles from my shop, one of which is made from even larger hollow spheres (16mm diameter).

index.php?t=getfile&id=1388&private=0

One cool thing I didn't realize before printing it is that the final assembled puzzle makes a great top.

Hi All,

Just to let you know, the smaller sibling of Happy Bird was printed flawlessly as well and made us equally happy.
At least in the coloured version; white detail, funny enough, showed some minor bits of leftover material.

Cheers, Michiel

I'm actually really surprised they got here so quick. I didn't think that it could get here within 10 working days, but it did!

Not to mention everything was great when it came. Only slightly disappointed with one of the swords because of some excess material, but that's only a minor gripe, and i'm sure i'll be able to dremel it off.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with my order. Now to see if the pieces can withstand the machining i have in store...

I recently received my first printed model. It's a ring I designed with an industrial look (guess the name yet? Its called Industrial...)

I printed it in stainless steel polished, and I was expecting to have some problems considering the small details and thin wall thickness (average 2mm thick, a 1mm thick section all the way around, and very tiny .5mm thick sections)

But it turned out beautifully, way beyond what I would have imagined. Actually, I ordered 3, and they are all perfect. Which shows that it wasn't just a particularly good print, but all prints of this model at least are virtually flawless. The tiny holes on the top are sometimes slightly misshapen, but not enough to destroy the look or even be noticeable unless you really look closely. And the process one-upped my 3d model by adding a slight texture to the whole thing that finishes off the industrial look perfectly.

I attached a picture of two of the three rings I received (It would show all three, but I didn't want to take off the one I was wearing!)s

I hope you all like it! And, as with any model I post here (unless I say otherwise) this is available in my shop, if you really like it as much as I do...

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.

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!)

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.

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.

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:

Look at some photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

I work here
This is great!!!

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:
index.php?t=getfile&id=706&private=0

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!

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?
