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.

Hi there,

I am currently working on a new generation of Shell Dice.
The Shell Dice are Truncated Sphere dice for which no number is located on faces and thus where faces can be removed by making them hollow (keeping only the rounded part of the shell). There particularly well suited for metal (sturdy shape, affordable price, good weight). The D4 in particular is really popular.
When I initially designed them, I begun with the D4, then the D6, the D8 and the D3, but while doing the D12 I felt the need to change a little bit the design to make the edges rounded (more consistent shapes). That's how the second generation was born.
I also did a D3 Fudge (asked by a customer) and I still need to work on the D20: I have some ideas for it, but I am not totally convinced yet.
Here is the complete collection (to date):
- D3 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D3 Fudge Shell dice - Gen 2
- D4 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D6 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D8 Shell dice - Gen 2
- D12 Shell dice - Gen 2
And two pictures (D4 and D12):


So many things to design, so little time...

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.

I'm a huge fan of Namio Harukawa's work so naturally I decided to open a shop selling amazon women crushing men. This first model I've released is inspired by one of my favourite pictures of his and I thought of it as not being too graphic like some of Namio's work is. It's a good balance between being ornamental and suggestive so you could stick it in the living room. I do intend to release some more brutal facesitting models in future though! Feedback and questions are welcome.

Hi guys!

We're developing a 3D printed robotic arm maker kit and we'd love to hear what you guys think of it


We've got a cool timelapse video of the build here.

It will come with a full set of of instructions and a gameified learning platform that teaches you how to make your kit and engages you with some of the science behind the electronics. The arm is controllable from your smartphone with our special Maker Connect chip.

We've got an IndieGoGo campaign launching pretty soon (you can read about that here), so any input is greatly appreciated!

What would you like to see on a robot arm? What kind of attachments would you like?

Just an FYI we switched from a RepRapPro to an Ultimaker 2 and our build quality has shot up.

Thanks guys, glad to become a part of your community

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my current work in progress: a 3D printed safety razor! I am going to call it the Genisys, because it was first and I like to spell things differently. The current itteration is quite aggressive, so I definitely will be trying to dial that back a bit. So without further adiu, https://www.shapeways.com/model/2623152/genisys-safety-razor .html

I'm building a variant of the robohand prosthetic for a 7 year old girl called Hollie. Unlike other robohand and E-nable Hands I'm pushing several technology fronts at once. The main one being that it is based upon scans of her actual hands. The full hand being mirrored over to form the fingers and palm of her new Robohand.


The second feature is that I'm incorporating elastic elements into finger hinges. I'm doing this by using the elastic properties of the sintered nylon (strong and flexible) material. This is similar to the flexy hand design except using only the single material.


The third feature is that this is all done using Shapeways materials. I haven't seen this done by anyone else (or even an SLS printed hand, for that matter). Hopefully this will give me a nice uniformity that I couldn't get with FDM (reprap, makerbot style) Printers.

More details will can be found Here with more details of the next stages to be released soon.

Here's Hollie trying out the arm.

I have had a Venus of Willendorf model for sale for a while now - got a few favourites, sold a couple. So I decided to make a slightly smaller version with a loop so it can be worn as a pendant. For Mother Goddess worshippers and the like. Not such a good advert for Paleo diet devotees though.

Hi Everyone

We are new to these forums but we are loving our Shapeways experience and the great community that exists here.

We have designed an iPhone 6/6s stand that we call 'Vector'. it literally just clips on your keyring, or any place where it can hook around so its light, portable and very handy when traveling, in class, at work, or anywhere that you need to stand your iPhone up.

We wanted to challenge ourselves with 3D printing in mind, be different from what traditional manufacturing dicates, and came up with simplified geometric shapes and minimalistic curves. The result was two functional separate bodies which meet together seamlessly when mated. Also designed in mind is the multiple color options, which when mixed give an accent to the overall design, be it in one's favorite sport, corporate, school, team, or national colors.

We hope you guys like it. The images are renders as we are awaiting our first prototype but if all goes well and it works as designed, we think it will be a great lightweight accessory.

sorry for the bad pictures, but real real cool about design.
if you look at the size of the out reaching arm holding the fish.
and the look at the size of the fish. anybody that's does any sandstone color knows,
it was impossible to have that much weight out reached without any support ,it would breaking in final stage of wet to dry.

Hello all,

You perhaps have seen my Multiplicator.
I am currently working on a smaller version specially designed for kids.
This version is smaller but also more affordable (less than $50 instead of more than $100).
It can help to learn the multiplication table. I contains only the numbers featuring into the table of Pythagoras.
All has been simplified for kids:
- it look like a toy (I wanted to call it the Toydatkankount)
- only half of the cylinders are used: this avoids strange things that usually appear with logarithm tables like 4x5=2 because there is no distinction between 2 and 20.
- no number is omitted they are all written (no need to count the lines, just follow them).
- the number (and the lines) are colorful and they have been colored is an interesting way: for instance, 2 is blue 5 is yellow thus their product 10 is green, a color obtained by mixing blue and yellow. The colors I selected are blue for 2, red for 3, yellow for 5 and grey for 7.


What do you think? Can this work with kids?

I know some parts are really crowded with numbers, but I wanted all the numbers of the multiplication table (and only them) to be written explicitly. Furthermore, the number are really small (2.5mm high if I remember well). I hope this will be readable.
The wheels are 4 mm thick (except where pegs are inserted (2mm only). I could reduce the price further by reducing the thickness to 3 or perhaps even 2 mm (I don't know it the ring making the wheel is considered as a supported wall or not).
Later, I will do another image for the numbers to have a "classic edition" (featuring all the numbers between 1 and 100, of course this time some of them being represented by a simple line).

Here are the two parts:
- Wheels
- Gears and Axes

Comments and suggestions welcome...

Hello all,

Well I made a medieval inspired ring design and I am curious about your opinion.

I was thinking to create a line of jewellery in this style for him and her.
And this is the first kick off.

Pretty new to all this and not yet very seasoned in modeling but I slowly get where I want to go :-)

Anyway, let me know what you think of it.

so this is a work in progress, its not certain or heavily a go yet. animal army is basically a line of action figure heads that you can apply to most ball jointed 1/18 scale action figures, as the title suggest it has animal characters and is a military themed scheme. i just want to know from the community if this catches your interest and if it is possible to sell it on shapeways, just drop a comment so i know that many of you guys will be interested, thanx

Go to my shop

In your experience I want to know the ideal relationship between width and deep of letters, to be printed in Gold Plated Brass. I've uploaded a model with deeper letters than its width -1.5 mm depth, for 1 or 1.2 mm thick-, and the wall thickness check marked it as OK. It will be printed OK or it will be refused?

Another question. I've designed and printed different models -with letters- but each model comes out with different sharpness, so I don't know what will be the exact relationship to reach the best results -well defined raised letters-. The manual polishing and plating process results in different finishes so I don't know the exact result until I got it on my hands! Any way to have a more precise result?

I know that's a different material but I've just received two identical parts in polished white plastic, and one of them has less detail!!! They look totally different for the polishing process -one sharper, the other one dull-. The polishing process must be best controlled.

Many thanks for your help.

I need some help knowing how to build the pendant so I can mount a Sapphire in it. My current build can be seen here.

I think that a small sapphire like this should fit nicely using a Burnish or Bezel setting. From what I read on Wikipedia, I don't think I would need to make any changes to the pendant in order for one of the settings to work. What do you think? Is there any changes you would recommend I make to better prepare the pendant for a stone?

When all is said and done I'm hoping it turns out something like this:

I'm designing a specialized keyfob, but it requires a slot for iButton insertion from a specific direction so as to not add sheer or wear to a certain part of it.

I am kind of at a loss as to how to design the slide feature to hold the iButton on.

The idea is, the iButton needs to be removable incase of chipset failure without making the entire composition useless as was the problem with just fusing the iButton to the entire fixture.

Something I have always wanted to (re-)create: amusement park rides!


The models are only 1.5inch / 4cm in size!!
Ordered them last week, hopefully i'll have some pictures of the printed models later on this week.

Here's a design I created over the weekend. I am having it printed in sandstone. It will be my first 3D print in color, so I can hardly wait to see the result.


So, what is it?

In an attempt to create a bit of excitement and mystery, I will not reveal what it is yet. Feel free to guess though. All I will say is that there are three reasons why it is called "PM Cubed". So that's basically three hints. What more could you ask for? ;-)

Hello Shapers!

I had a first go on a spare part for my kitchen hood. (siemens lc89950)
Sure i can order this piece, but it's €40,- (because you get the whole module)


Was hoping if anyone could take a look at it and maybe give me some pointers.

(it's downloadable)

My biggest concern is the curved part, since it will need to be flexible enough to bend, in order to press either Plus or Minus.


ps: if you really want to get into it, here's the link to the exploded view of the hood.
