I have authored 13 short stores, real world quests with missions and suggestions for student online research and project / product development. Each has a 3D Explorer to guide the student. The EFG projects have been used in classrooms, after school clubs and entire school districts across the US and Internationally. Today students are building products using this same content. I would like to use the Explorers to "train" students to utilize this content. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hello, everyone. I thought it was time to introduce myself.

I've been experimenting with different techniques for producing 3D objects programatically. I work primarily in a programming language called Clojure. I've developed a process whereby I can create and manipulate polygon meshes in Clojure, and then output the results as an X3D file for full-color printing. And while I have created designs for porcelain, steel, and other materials, right now I'm focusing on full-color sandstone.

I have several experimental designs on my designer profile page that you might find interesting. And I just posted my first design for sale. It looks like this:

If you want to spin it around to get the full effect, here is a link to that object in the Shapeways 3D Tools Viewer.

I look forward to getting to know everyone better. Hope you enjoy my designs.

What's in your tool box[ 0 vote(s) ]
1.Open Source Tools 0 / 0%

4.Gimp 0 / 0%
5.Inkscape 0 / 0%

I just started with faster I7 system after spending two years trying to get Apple products
to work with what I had.

The Sprout by HP is fully equipped to do 3D scanning to Wavefront OBJ.
After updating to Windows 10 I decided to dual boot to Ubuntu Studio 15.04
to use tools I was familiar with.
I am hopefully uploading a zip file that was of a printed Thingyverse model
then re-scanned by the Sprout into an OBJ.
The OBJ was loaded into Blender 3D and saved.
I have a survey as well to who else may use these FREE Open Source tools
even if not on Ubuntu Studio - Linux.

I also am into slot cars and full size electric vehicles and am leasing a Smart ED
until 2016.

I want to combine all my hobbies and interests and maybe make some small amount
of money in the process.

I'm calling it a "sustainable hacker space" to encompass all my ideas in a lifestyle of
fun and leisure now the kids are out of college and I am retiring at 65 in 2017.

Im happy to announce I just opened my store here on Shapeways, and I uploaded 2 designs, too. Many more designs coming through out the rest of this year, so follow my store for updates!

I would like to say thanks to the Shapeways community for helping me with the few questions that I had (in the past 2 weeks). The insight and kindness I received from the community has been so helpful. Without the help I received in these forums, I probably would not even have a store up and running right now, so a big thanks from me! :D


If you like my shop, please consider posting the above link to my shop on your Facebook and twitter for all your friends and followers to see! :D

My main web site is down due too a massive overhaul I am doing with it (front and back end), so my apologies to anyone who want to visit the main site ( - You will have a wait a little while. :D

From jewelry to nicknacks, to full color sculptures (and whatever else inspires me), I plan to offer unique designs not found anywhere else.

I, once again, want to thank the Shapeways community for their knowledge; their expeditious replies to my posts; and general kindness that I received here on these forums at any given time. Thanks a hundred times over.

- Fellow Shapie, Joe

what a response! rewriting the whole thing. It was late, and it's a bit hard to explain.
Geting back into 3d stuff, will hopefully have at least one thing done by the end of the year. Have some familiarity with materials, 3d stuff but not much at all. Have an Idea to sell small items, providing dollar for dollar supprt to NPOs, a sort of hobby to see how that would work out. Thinking of doing a short run injection mould and tampo print to test the principle one day, but I haven't used 3d software for about 15 years and I used to stuff up in that class a lot.

And my Names Pete, I'm a mobile dog washer and car / toy car enthusiast, and an art school drop out. From Australia, born in 83. I'm also a spiritual kind of guy, like succeeding working with nature. I know a lot of people aren't, fine whatever, but I'm onto thinking that a dollar for dollar donation arrangement is a way to be successful. It's like a product/service thing you're paying for. If it gets that far. We've all got our bit to do, and when it's done we feel proper happy. One for me, one for you, like homer dreaming of the alcohol fueled car, sort of

Would really like to just meet some people here on shapeways who get the idea more or less and chat about it.

Hello! Thought it was time I posted an intro on here... So here we go!

I'm 25 years old. Female. An Architecture student and 2D freelance artist. Living in Romania. You'd probably expect me to know some decent 3D modelling because of my Architecture background, but the truth is I've only ever worked in ArchiCAD for my university renders and had a few basic AutoCAD classes in my 1st year (meaning 5 years ago), so... No.

I found this site a couple of years ago and immediately thought how cool it'd be to model your own jewelry. I'm a big fan of metal jewelry, especially silver... Plastic jewelry tends to get on my nerves for some reason. Now the thing is, I never had the "nudge" to get to work on a model until recently, when I started re-reading the Harry Potter books and went back into the fangirl frenzy I was notorious for about 15 years ago. I wanted a "house" crest piece and couldn't find anything online that was both made in metal and fit my "vision"... I was actually a bit surprised at that because it's like this huge franchise that's completely filled Etsy stores (and I've also seen a ton of HP pieces on Shapeways) and with how passionate people are about their houses... Well, you know. So anyway, I decided "nevermind, I'll make my own".

I chose Rhino because from what I've seen of other similar software, it's the most intuitive. To me, at least. Learned a bit by working on two other models before starting on the crests. Then I proceeded with the crests themselves... learned a bit more. And now I seem to've caught the bug. I finally finished those crest pendants and ordered one of each - they're "in production" now, I hope there won't be any rejection issues or anything. And if I like how they came out I'd like to continue modeling stuff like that. I still have so much to learn!

You can see how they came out in the shop:

If they do print without issue I'll post proper photos of them when they arrive to me. I ordered the small versions (5.3 cm tall) in stainless steel, so I'm worried about the details completely disappearing, or worse - the entire crest just looking like a "blob" of something. Fingers crossed that I'm just being needlessly dramatic.

So... yeah, that's basically it. I'm here because I'm a fangirl who just HAS to have her stuff :))

Hi there! My name's Mitch, and I'm from New Brunswick, Canada.
I'm a life-long artist and animator. I'm here on shapeways because I'm so excited to be involved in an industry with emerging technology and a new market that's just waiting to be explored!
So far I've only used shapeways to design a few little knick-knacks as christmas presents for family, which should be shipping tomorrow! : )
I was trained with 3DS Max in school, and never really liked it, and sometimes I have fun with sculptris, but I really prefer blender for serious projects, and I'd really like to learn zbrush if it wasn't so friggin' expensive.
My experience level is hard to gauge because all of my experience which has led me to this point has been so eclectic, but I'm a relative 3D noob, as most of my work has been traditional art, 2D digital art (I use a lot of adobe products), and 2.5D video and animation with after effects, I still have a really good eye for awesome 3D design, it just takes me some time to get there as I'm still mastering the tools.

I've attached a render of a cute little bunny I modeled to use as Christmas gift, you can check it out as an example of my style here: ml?li=shop-results&materialId=6

Please note that I don't really have my shop set up like I'd like to yet, I'm basically waiting until I get this order in and can take some decent pictures of my products, and I'm obviously going to reduce the number of materials this bunny is available in. : P

Nice meeting you all and happy shaping!

Hi there!

I am Leandro Arndt, from Brazil. I'm here to design and sell christian articles, from jewelry to page markers. I've already created and uploaded the simplest models, and I'm now trying to do some christian imagery, which implies modeling the human body. No easy task, really. Any advices on my uploaded models?

Hi ,

I would like to invite you to visit our new website (Beta version) at the following web address:

The WMC (Watertight Mesh Certificationâ„¢) is a product qualification label that certifies the 3D model has passed visual and automated tests that meet specific qualification criteria in the list of model requirements published at

Further the certification service, which , I believe , you as "Shapeways Shoppers" probably don't really need, there is also a section for 3d modelers listing filtered by 3d printing skills. This listin would be a resource for 3D Modelers to seek new job opportunities and gain greater visibility and market exposure.
I would really like if you could register to the site here

Hope you like the initiative and any feedbacks, questions or comments are vey welcome.

Kind regards

Hello everyone!

I've been a member here a while, but I've been lurking Wink Anyway, I had an idea and I'm looking for people to help because it could be a big job.

Basically I'm going to 3D print a mini desktop letterpress, for ink printing typographic artwork and text. I've got an idea of how to build it, working on the model right now BUT making the type blocks is a big job. Lots of fonts, lots of sizes, two cases plus italics etc... it's big. I was wondering if anyone fancied getting involved with me on the project to create sets of type and print-block images so we can launch it as a collaborative piece of mechanical / print art?

If not, hello anyway, nice to meet you

Hi All,

Nice to meet you Smile

Be great if you could advise what 3D software to use to help me design glass sculptures. I'm a glass artist, who sets intricate patterns inside optical glass. Over the years I've developed ways of visualising how reflections will work inside this glass prism, but feel I can make more sophisticated reliefs and optical resonance if I were to prototype with CAD.

Can you recommend which CAD package to use? Needs to be Mac OS. I'm an apple girl! who hasn't found any that is capable of rendering reflections inside the form.... As glass is both translucent and reflective, ideally I want to be able to see into the form and see the reflections in and around it.

Check out Colin Reid's glass to see the sort of thing I'm after.

Thank you.

Hi everybody,

Although I am new to this forum, I am a 3D printer fervent, and have even written a short ebook on the subject.

I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Zach Smith (ex of Makerbot) in Shenzhen last year, who really got me interested in the subject, along with Dr Alexander Elder who was also very informative. I am sure that many of you have read his ebook on 3D printing stock investing.

With all the stock prices rising quickly after Obama's mention of 3D printing in the SOTU, I am sure that Dr Elder must be laughing all the way to the bank.

My own ebook on 3D printing looks much more from the small entrepreneur's perspective, looking at how these machines can turn a profit at home.

3D Printing: The Next Technology Gold Rush - Future Factories and How to Capitalize on Distributed Manufacturing

If anybody would like a complimentary copy for review purposes then please feel free to ask. I need all the publicity help that I can get. Very Happy

Hello everyone,

My names is Jason last name is Frick. I live in Arizona but i'm originally from Michigan.

I have a career in marine aquarium sales and technology. (I sell aquarium equipment and supplies through a wholesale outfit. ) While years of dealing with aquarium equipment i have developed some ideas of my own. Specifically in filtration. That's what brings me here. I have been searching for my first printer, but there are some many choices I don't know where to begin.

I am not sure but this forum looked like a fairly neutral place, no sponsorship to one printer or owned by one certain brand.. So I thought i might be able to get a good opinion, rather than be subjected to which model. of only one brand.

I have some experience with Google Sketch Up. That is as far as my software experience goes. Any suggestions would be appreciated?

I need to buy my first printer. Here's what i would like for advise;
Easy to put together and use. dah.
A good sized printing platform (200mm x 200mm x 150mm) (8"x 8"x 6") or bigger.
Software rundown. What should i learn to use that might be the most universal and useful to me?
Resolution.? I got know idea. When it come to micron i think particles that need to be filtered out of water. LOL Any analogies or references would be helpful.
II want to build prototypes with a 3D printer for now. So i think i only need one printer head.

Thanks in advance.

I've been around Shapeways for a few weeks, but wanted to experiment and get a few things in my shop before posting so there would be something to see. My background has been in illustration for around 30 years, and I wanted to try my hand at bringing some of the character illustrations I've done for greeting cards (Leanin' Tree) to life in a 3D format... Anyhow, I'm having fun and plan to order stuff to see how the real thing looks.

"A Young Gun" (at bottom) is one I just posted in my shop - there are others with a more humorous approach - drop by and take a look. Also visit my websites and

I am new to Shapeways, although I have known about it for a while.

And since I am back in school (at a rather late age - I'll be 50 by the time I get my degrees - two of them), I am trying to incorporate as much 3D design and 3D printing into my studies as I can (hard to do with a Cognitive Science degree, less difficult with the Cybernetics degree - I'm at UCLA).

So, it seemed natural that I join Shapeways and try to get some of the 3D models I have created produced.

If anyone can tell me which Apps are best for Shapeways, and if the models produced here can be used as production masters for white-metal casting... I'd appreciate it.

I currently know AutoCAD pretty well, but have been told there are better Applications for 3D printing.

I have been learning Mudbox and Maya as well, but they seem to be more geared for Video and Film.

I hope the file I attached is visible. It is an example of something I want to produce as a miniature, for gaming.

Hmb-ecodesign is involved in 3d printing design .We want to help development of this new industry because we are sur it is a clever consumption of goods!
Thanks to 3D printed industry the designers aim to show the new fashion of consumption We want to forget taylorism and mass production.

So we encourage the development of concepts and we accept all opinions about our objects .

Just discovered this site due to an old friend who is already a member. Will upload older works for printing and will also be designing new stuff as well.

About me: I am Maya 3D Artist with 8 years of experience in video game and commercial illustration fields. So far I only dropped one item in and that's because I know it prints well. (done it before). This site gives me a lot of inspiration and I am happy to be part of the community.

My website has some Robocop Models that I am will be printing as well as some mechanical stuff.

Drop me a line if you like the stuff, if you have a request or suggestion or for any other reason.

Hello everyone,
My name is Jens, I am new to Shapeways and realizing the great possibilities here I had to become part of this community.
There are so many beautiful pieces here that many of you have created, which are truly inspiring to say the least.

I am first a painter and second a sculptor and third a musician. I have worked for the Warner Bros Studio's Scenic Art Department for 10 years and eventually quit to expand and start getting into sculpting. I am very fond of metal sculptures, however the old lost wax process is very expensive. Until I found 3D metal printing I wasn't able to turn my sculptures into metal.
While Shapeways' metal prices are unusually high (there are other companies that are much more reasonable) they compensate that by offering almost any common material one can have a sculpture made of.
The entire site and idea is great, backed by some powerful software!

I am working on a little series of sculptures called "Where is my Teddy?"
I sculpted the first 3 by hand in polymer clay until I found the 3D Printing Process. Since then I've been working and sculpting on the computer.

Have a look at my "Where is my Teddy?" series and let me know if you like it.
I will keep adding more pieces as time goes on.

Happy to be here with all that great and inspiring work all you guys have put out so far.
Thank you for making future reality.
Jens (Yens)

I'm getting into deisgning iPhone cases, but I'm not exactly super creative when it comes to ideas, I would love some suggestions.

I love designing celtic knot patterns, my shop has 2 cases already, one I did for my Dad with his company logo, and one inspired by my son, Phoenix (which is ready for order). check them out at

I would love any ideas, I am quite adept at 3D modeling and am able to incorporate anything I can think of, but would love ideas and suggestions from others. I am also willing to take custom orders, ie case style, designs, special logos, names, etc.

I am a male (born 1965) and living in the Netherlands.
Since i startet the miniature railway hobby again (midlive crisis) i discovered the possibilities of 3D-modelling and prototyping.
My first project has been send. It is a set of catanary poles from German railways in H0 (1:87). Aim is to cut expenses, because the hobby is very expensive.
Perhaps people are interested in the project. Let me know.

Hi guys.

My name is Cesar, from Spain, and I´m involved about radiocontrol racing for years.

Few ago I started to design custom proyects and I think it´s time to share them with racers all around the world.

My first uploads will be the wheels my current RC bike needs. Home prototypes cyano glued don´t offer the quality people deserves so let´s go and 3D print them.

See you soon.

Hello all! I just signed-up for Shapeways today with the hopes of meeting some 3D artists and possibly getting some commission work done for the sci-fi tabletop game I've created called EXODUS.

Below is a sample of some artwork I had made for the game:

I've been working on this project off and on for over a decade now and just haven't been able to get to the production stage due to a lack of interested sculptors and artists at my location and limited funding. Hopefully though I can find someone here who's interested in taking things to the next level.

Hi - I'm Todd from Champlin Minnesota. I make tactical gear and have hit a wall in my designs due to lack of ability to create with polymers.

I'm here to find someone who would like to work on prototyping/building components for my designs.

I need to eat a bit of crow here as a few years ago on saw a video on 3D modeling and thought "big deal" well now I get it.
Perhaps my first project should be a small pie with a crow's head sticking out.

Hey there,

New to the site I am a 3d modeler and entrepreneur/business consultant really excited about this site and the service it offers this is right up my alley.

Very refreshing and awesome to see the difference new startups like this are making using new technologies pretty cool stuff!

Hello to the Shapeway community. I've been retired for over six years now. I wrote a small text on Random dot stereograms in the early 90s when that art form was popular. That got me interested in 3D objects and all the various file formats for describing such. Now with much more time to devote and a nice CAD system to play with, the closet 3D designer has come out to build new things. A best description of most of my work can currently be found on the july 2, 2012 posting on the Sanibel island blog. It is at this link-

and describes the seashells that I've been making at Shapeways. Other favorite hobbies include kayaking, biking, kites, and playing with fast vehicles on ice. Enjoy. -Andy

Hi. I've been working on a series of robotic hands, that are 3d printed. You may have seen my work featured on shapeways, on the blog boingboing, or a few others.

I've moved from designing parts that are screwed together (Mk1), to parts that are printed in place (Mk2). I have recently started an indiegogo campaign in order to try and fund my Mk3 hand.

One thing that may appeal to fellow shapeways users is that I intend to make the covers for the hand open for anyone to design their own versions. This way you could design whatever style you like, whilst knowing that it can still move afterwards.
You can make the hand look human, robotic, alien etc etc.

If you're interested in this project, and want to see just how far we can push 3D printing, then take a look at the indiegogo campaign. Show anyone that you think may be interested.

Also the campaign video isn't the best. My partner gave birth and I haven't had time to put together something better. I plan to update it as the design work comes along.
