I've noticed that a lot of my prints end up having one side where the edges are very sharp and flat, and another side that tends to be softer and rounder.

I suspect it has something to do with the orientation of the object when it is printed, but I'm not sure if I have any control over that.

Any thoughts on how to anticipate this during the rendering process?

Hi,

This is the first 3D object I have made, I did it by measuring and designing in 2D in illustrator, then I rebuilt it in 3D in Autodesk 123D design. Hopefully I got all of the measurements right. It's a bracket for a router so it can be mounted in a comms cabinet.

https://www.shapeways.com/product/6SRQCAGJT/srx100-juniper-b racket?li=shop-inventory&optionId=56746314

I was just wondering if someone could have a quick look at the design, you don't even need to download it really, I just need to know if it will be strong enough based on what you know about the strength of "Strong and flexible" plastic material? The front and side are 3mm thick plastic and I added a triangle at the join and an extra bit on the longer side of the bracket.

Do you guys think this will be strong enough to hold a small router? The router weighs 844 grams.

Thanks for any tips

(PS I uploaded the STL file)

Any suggestions as to the thickness of a simple quadcopter frame

My friend gave me the idea for this ring. I'm fairly sure it will be fine structurally, but I'd love feedback about the design. Tweaks to the models, names, whatever. Thanks!

I've been working on this for a while after hours.. It is a Carter Hoffman college mascot from the 1950's. The Seaton Hall statue of the pirate has never been found, only a photostat of the statue has been recovered. My mission is to create a 4 inch replica of what the carving may have looked like. This is what the mascot photocopy looks like..not much to go on. Once completed it will be printed and then most likely carved out of wood, hopefully to complete the collection.index.php?t=getfile&id=93475&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=93476&private=0

I've got this jaguar bust that I created a year ago that I would like to turn into a pendant.
I'm not sure how to make it lay across the skin though.
I've thought about rounding out the neck but that doesn't look very attractive.

A loop in the middle or through the ears.

Howdy all, I am needing a little help getting my models out of Maya and print ready. These chairs are intended to be used as Wedding Cake toppers, so I would like them only to be about 3.5-4 inches tall. I am also a little lost in regards to the best practice for shelling the two models.

Here is a preview of the chairs.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v611/agentjosh77/Chairs_Preview_zpskaftivvx.jpg

Any advice would be wonderful. I exported each chair as an OBJ but the model preview in the Shapeways webapp was pretty broken. I have attached the Maya file if anyone would like to review the file.

Thank you all! I appreciate the assistance!

Hello everyone,

Let me start by saying I am a complete noob when it comes to the world of 3D printing and everything that goes with it. So bare with me as I write this post. Recently, I acquired these two cards games and these two particular games the cards all but make the games so to be safe I put all the cards in rigid card sleeves. As a result neither game's cards will fit in their respective boxes anymore. So I decided that since both games come from the same made up universe why not design a box to put them in and get that box printed.

Well so far I've designed the box base (22" L x 14" W x 3.5" H) the way I would like it. Haven't designed the lid for it yet but I'm not worried about that at the moment. I just want to get my basic idea out there first to see what others think. Biggest question I have is if this can even be 3D printed. If it can't what can I do to make it 3D printable. If it can be 3D printed would it be able to hold the weight of the cards without falling apart.

Couple of things about this box. Except for the holes where the cards will go and the indents for the text everything else is filled in. Question is, should it be? Every hole is designed to fit the cards EXACTLY as in no wiggle room. These holes range anywhere from 1/4" to 2.4375". Question is how exact is 3D printing? If my box could be printing I would want the cards to fit nice and snug but I don't the box design to be so exact that during printing it is off by a little bit and the cards then won't fit. At the same time I don't want the spaces to have so much extra room that the cards end moving around or not staying up straight.

Between each hole is a 1" space for the labels. The labels are each indented 0.1". Wasn't sure how much of an indent to use so I just went with 0.1". Just because I thought it should be there (and to give me space to add holes or connectors for a lid) I have a 3/4" space around the entire box.

I also have a 1" space on the bottom between the bottoms of the holes and the bottom of the box.

If you need other measures I can provide them.

I created this whole thing using SketchUp 2015 (The free version) because this was the first thing I found I could use.

I guess some basic questions would be: What are the size dimension limits on 3D printed objects? Does my box exceed those limits? If so, how could I modify my box so that it could be 3D printed? How much would a box like this cost to be 3D printed? What could I do to reduce that cost without reducing the integrity of the design? Assuming I choose plastic as my printing material what then are my color choices? Do I have a limited palette or a huge range of millions of colors to pick from?

Again I am total noob when it comes to 3D printing and this was the first forum I found that hopefully can help guide me in what my next steps are.

I've attached (hopefully) a picture of my design to give you an idea of what I'm thinking. If you need other info or files, let me know.

I think this is complete, but I haven't tried getting it printed yet and I'm still open to feedback/suggestions.

I was asked y a customer to make a D36 numbered from 0 to 35.
I took this opportunity to also release de D36 numbered from 1 to 36.
The shape is base on a cube for which each one of the 6 faces is divided into 6 in a balanced way (and 6 x 6 = 36). This subdivision gives the initial position of the faces of the truncated sphere die : 36 circles on a sphere. This rough shape is then refined so that each face is as large as possible.
Here are the underlying 36-sided polyhedron and the truncated sphere shape obtained by intersecting the previous one with a sphere of the appropriate diameter (this operation insures that all the faces have the same area):
index.php?t=getfile&id=89571&private=0
Regarding the numbering, I worked hard with my customer to get also a kind of balance. For the die numbered from 1 to 36, we wanted each group of 6 numbers (located on the faces of the underlying cube) to feature either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 exactly as a 6-sided die (with the group with 1 opposed to the group with 6 etc.), and those 6 numbers of each group to sum up to 111 (since the global sum of all the numbers is 666, the number of the beast). And of course, we wanted the numbers of opposite faces to sum up to 37.
After believing a long time it was impossible, we come up with an elegant solution.
Here is the result:
index.php?t=getfile&id=89569&private=0
And this is a rendering where you can see better the group of 6 numbers belonging to the faces of the underlying cube:
index.php?t=getfile&id=89570&private=0
You can see for instance that 1+10+17+23+29+31 = 111.

I am currently working to have also a numbering of the D50 with numbers on opposite face summing to 51 (currently it is numbered so that the difference between numbers on opposite faces is always 25, that is 1 is opposed to 26, 2 is opposed to 27 etc. and 25 is opposed to 50).

Hello, new to Shapeways. Any feedback on this model before I get into rigging? The Dino is meant as a miniature and will be on a leash of some kind. Thinking I am going for pre-history (no metal). I want to print in multi-color.

Any and all thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks!

Greg

Hey guys! I just finished my first design, but I'm hesitant to place my first prototype order without some review from people who actually know what they're doing! My plan is to make a silicone type coaster or dinner placemat and this is the first of many designs. It could also be adapted pretty easily into jewelry with some size adjustment. What do you think?? How can I improve it?

I'm sharing my new model. I customized my other necktie clip, attached a stormtrooper helmet and some linear designs in the front.
I hope you like it. Comments are welcome.

Hi, I'm having some difficulty with my model,

Shapeways doesn't render the mid and top octagons correctly but it looks fine on the vrml.

Can someone help? I'd be willing to commission someone for a fix

Following on from my popular false colour mobius moonscape comes a proper moonsphere edition.

Richly detailed with color as a function of height, this is a great alternative view of our moon.

Here's my entry for the Extend the Function iPhone 6 Design Contest, Yes, I'm a couple of months late! HAHAHA! :D Well, that's because this wasn't easy! :D It took a long time for me to think it out. :D This is about the 15th major iteration change. What's hard is, getting it to fit on the back and also fold out large enough so that it can properly support the weight of the phone.

What is it exactly? This is an iPhone 6 case that has a permanently attached quadropod that unfolds for use and folds back up on the case when not in use. When in the unfolded state the quadropod allows forward and back tilting 180 degrees and right to left tilting 360 degrees. It also serves as an adjustable selfie stick by not unfolding the legs completely.

I'm sure I'll want to make more changes once I get the tangible version in my hands in Strong & Flexible, so I'm posting this as a work in progress.

I am scanning my wife's sculptures using 123DCatch or other software that takes a bunch of 2-D photos and makes a 3-D model.

Doing it using a still camera is time-consuming. Then I thought, what about a VIDEO camera? It takes 30 frames per second, and you would just pick the "good frames" that you want to put in. The photography could be done pretty quickly.

However, what do I look for in a video camera that could do this well? I need something that can get tack-sharp focus quickly as I walk around the sculpture, and has decent resolution.

Here's one of my late night musings - an interesting way to hold my camera lens cap while I'm taking pictures.
It would slide onto the camera strap, and allow the lens cap to snap in just like it does on the camera.

What do you all think? Flashy enough? Is the pattern okay?

Hello guys.

I'm a witcher fan and as I saw the new design for the Witcher Medallion for the upcoming game I just had to build my own version for 3D printing!
The test-print (polished metallic plastic) still takes ~10 day until arrival.
So I'm sharing some 3D renders and a turntable for now.
Although it's still in the "Demo"-Phase the model should already be fully functional ready for printing.
