My new work is about "the 4 elements": Fire, Air, Earth, and Water. In classical Greek science and medicine, the Four Elements are the basic constituents of all matter. Everything in the universe is composed of the Four Elements, in varying proportions and amounts.
I have thought to shape the 4 elements into rings. One of this is now in production and I can't wait for seeing it.
Waiting for, here are 42 seconds of a video presentation.

Hi all,

A long time ago, I designed the DodBox (see also this thread).
I wanted to do something similar for Ceramics for a long time. The new colors for ceramics have been the right opportunity to do it now.
So here it is, the DodBox in Ceramics:
http://images.shapeways.com/model/picture/640x476_569568_86101_1336919433.jpg
This is a rounded version, also inspired by the Truncated Sphere D12.
It is quite thick so the box can (hopefully) be closed, and as the original one, it is stackable (more renders on the product page).
I am curious to see how it works, and I'd like to mix the colors...


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

Hey guys, what do you make of this?

[Flextest] Pop-up Jewellery Display & Case Bangle
index.php?t=getfile&id=16735&private=0

I have no idea if it will work or how well it would work, but I figured it wouldn't hurt if I prototyped it up and entered it Smile

"Designed for the Shapeways 3D Print Flex-Contest, this item comes in two parts - a bangle "case" and a jewellery display. They are printed together but are detachable.

The bangle has an internal diameter of 65mm to fit small wrists like mine, and features a flower shape with four "petals" and a central "style" with "stigma" stopper on the end. The petals have circular loops on the end to squeeze the "stigma" through, holding the flower closed.

The large criss-cross patterned stand or jewellery display is built with hooked earrings in mind, but can potentially also be used to hold cufflinks, and possibly bangles, bracelets and necklaces.

It may not be suitable for heavy jewellery, but has not yet been tested.

The idea is that when not in use, the display can be squished up small enough to fit into the closed flower on the bangle.

For use in the home and also out at craft fairs and car boot sales."

I am building a submarine kit from scratch with all the functioning parts. I had originally wanted to go through the typical channels, but found this 3D printing to be a VERY affordable alternative to the standard methods of building an original RC hull kit. I designed the schematics in Illustrator and modeled the hull and parts mostly in 3DS Max.

I am pleased to say that the whole kit is very near completion and will cost less 1/2 what it would cost to build this from the ground up using standard custom fabrication techniques. I am planning to release it for sale in the near future, but the more interest I get the more likely I will be to sell it. The kit will retail for between $600 - 1000 for the two versions. One fully painted and customize by me and the other available for purchase from Shapeways.com for individual hobbyists ts to build. Final price TBD 2012.

You can find my boat and all it's parts to see by searching "707"

Enjoy! I am.

You just need a rubber band to put on the hooks on either side and around the notch in the top.

Hi everyone. I've been working on designing and building a robotic hand few a few months now ..cough*eleven*cough.. and eventually decided that Shapeways was the best bet. I'm waiting on an updated version to be delivered, but here is what I have so far.

I plan to make the hand available for sale ASAP. I think that it will come in at about 110 euros, although further assembly (screws/bolts/dowel pins etc) would be required by future buyers.

I´m nearly done with him now. Smile

But I´d like to give him a ball joint for his head.
Did so with my leader Optimus and Megatron.
But Starscreams head is more complicated constructed and I dont want to cause too much damage.
So anybody can help me with this?
And of course after this ball joint thing he will get also this great articulated hands from here. Smile
Thanky for helping anyway!

Hey everyone,

I have been working with Shapeways for a while and my Card Carrier has actually done reasonably well. So I want to revise it yet again, created a new 3.0 version.

If you were to buy a business card case, what would you want that case to do? How should it look? Should it have more than one use, where would you keep it?

here is the link: http://www.shapeways.com/model/94589/

I am even considering some sort of contest for good ideas.

Hi,
I've decided to give a touch of vintage at some pictures of my objects, for example at the BLACK ROSE Collection. I've uploaded pictures on my iPhone using DropBox and then with a photo application I've modified the pictures.

This effect gives at the photos a touch of vintage and "belle epoque" that is perfect for the BLACK ROSE Collection and some other object.

index.php?t=getfile&id=13165&private=0

What do you think about it?

I would like to know your opinion!

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to this forum. I recently finished modelling this phone from xmen 2. The model is shelled(1mm) and ready for its new sliding mechanism.

What i would like to know is would this be possible to get this made in stainless steel? For now im going to get it in basic plastic but I would be nice to get movie accurate:)

I'm looking forward to getting some orders and creating these.

I also have a question about the pricing of an object. I added my fee the model but it doesn't seem to be showing up on my end?? Is there a reason for this?

Would love to hear some feedback about this project and what you might think would be worth changing. The models? Renderings? Price? Anything

I'm pretty satisfied with it. Now I'm wondering what I'll work on next. If you go to my shop and look at the trumpet listed that looks like a Christmas card and read the description, you may see the parts that would need to be added for it to look ∙ complete for silver edition.──·⌡us┼in ☺

I modelled this ring loosely based on the Green Hornet mask, which is, in essence, just a generic superhero mask anyway, to ultimately get it printed in silver.

I do like the silver material, I just wish Shapeways would allow for, say, two separate models to be printed in one file (as long as they were the same model, perhaps?). Yes, I know this can be done with earring and cufflinks, but when it comes to having to re-sell these items paying $74 for one ring just does NOT make it affordable - and that's without any profit. I was just yesterday charged $17.97 by UPS at the door and on top of the $6.50 I have to pay Shapeways. If I could spread that cost over two rings it at least becomes somewhat more bearable.

These 6 ornaments are the first in a set of winter decorations, entitled Winter Forest, which in turn are a part of a Winter series. The primary qualities we are seeking to emphasize with all of our pieces within the winter series include beauty, elegance, simplicity, purity, durability, practicality, and customizability. WSF provides a perfect opportunity to design winter ornaments which are durable and certainly more practical for their repeated use.
This set comes in small and large ornaments. Most of the pieces within the large ornaments are or will be interchangeable. This allows for improved customizability in that pieces from other winter sets can be mixed and matched. For example, a figure from A Winter's Night set could be used in the ball of the Winter Forest. The underlying principle here being maximum optimization of both the homogeneity and heterogeneity of the various pieces providing for a greatly increased likelihood of the individual finding designs that he/she loves.
All designs rely in the beauty of simplicity with shapes, lines, curves, and interconnections that retain the purity of geometric fluidity. The size proportions of the inner pieces with size of the exterior ball ("invertedly" speaking the size of the open space) alters the overall tone of the ornament and what is being emphasized. For example, in the smaller ornament the piece on the inside will be emphasized whereas in the larger one the pieces truly feel as if they were sitting in a winter forest enveloped by huge evergreens.
The Winter Series were and continue to be designed in collaboration with the Peanut Gallery aka. Smurphilicious S.Murphy.

Hi all,

Just ordered my <3 lamp prototype. It consists of 5 pieces; the base, two arms and two endcaps. The endcaps will emit light thanks to LED lights. It can be hung from the ceiling.

I have twice in the past "Frosted Ultra Detail" commissioned output.
Both times I get an error of the output. Sad
Is distorted.

I have contact customer services.
The result was that many triangles.

The triangles can be used to absolute [decimation master] in zbrush.

What measures are available?
Please, teach me...

In the future, I want the output in FUD.
Please advise....

I decided to make a full set of Braille Dice. I forgot how big braille is though so the D8 and up will have to be pretty large. Here is the D4 and D6 what do you think?

Hi there,

The D4 Cage is a new design for a four-sided die, inspired by the D6 Cage.
The principle is to be able to get the result by reading a single number on the top of the die like in the D4 Shell.
And octahedron with four missing faces has been place inside a wireframed tetrahedron and the numbers are written on the remaining faces of the octahedron: one of those face is always facing upward.
/openfile/319478/photos/photo48996.jpg
You can also see this die as the coumpound of 4 tetrahedra, each of them with one solid bottom face (with the number engraved) and all the other faces wireframed.

The wire is 2mm, but as it is a small object, it should print correctly in metal.


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

Last weekend I sat down and created a blog which illustrates my custom wrist watch project.

Please have a look and let me know what you think.

It is written for newbies like myself who don't have much or any experience in 3D printing or watchmaking.

Hello all,

I'm interested in creating a monogram shape for use in making several silicone-based candy molds for my upcoming wedding. I have a feeling that the shape would be very versatile, in that I can create chocolates, lollypops, and even stamps, and an embossing base that I could use to help create a lovely design esthetic. I know that most materials are categorized as not being food safe (except for the ceramic, but that has too poor of quality for my purposes), and thus it's not recommended that I try to use any of these for my purposes.

However, I was thinking, would it be possible to clean the object, and then coat it in...say a plastic (carefully formed around the ridges using an embossing pen), or a glaze, that would render it safer for use in creating a sillocone mold? What shapeways material might be best for these purposes?

I would appreciate any and all thoughts on this matter!

Thanks,

Veronica
