Currently have 2 functional action figures created and going to be working on 2 more. If you can check them out and let me know what you guys think.

Here is a link for the first one created and working version.
Still have to make a video for the second action figure.

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!

Cheers,
Dario

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:)

Here are some renders of the phone.

Hey Yall!

Check out my new co-creator project Hollow Heads here----> http://www.shapeways.com/model/410237/hollow_heads.html?gid= ug

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

Best,

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.

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.

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.

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

My summer garden sculpture project is to create a scale model of an ancient doric temple. Working on the outter columns at 1:60th scale first. Printed in WSF sealed with Super Seal and molded in Vytalflex 40 for casting in copolymer bonded concrete.
http://www.shapeways.com/openfile/252958/252958.v0.s13.convert.large.jpg

You'd think either designing or molding these would be the hard part but it took me almost a dozen phone calls to find a local supplier of white portland cement and #00 white silica.

I need to cast the column mold 50 times over the next month.

Howdy,

A question about a possible application for 3D printing:

Basically I want to make customized "speed buckles" or "hook buckles"; you would find these on backpacks, crashpads and other gear commonly designed/manufactured in the outdoor equipment industry. Below are some picture examples.

Ideally I would combine the basic function of these friction devices with a more pleasing design, such as a desert scarab beetle shape or other fun shapes. These would then be used for the normal purpose of tightening/loosening webbing straps without the hassle of pinching tiny plastic buckles, which break and are generally annoying to many people. The desert beetle design would be paired with equipment designed to be used in arid climates so it would be purely aesthetic. That being said, I am confident I can design (using normal 3D computer aided techniques) a buckle that will be both functional and aesthetically pleasing, that is, the "beetleness" will not interfere with the buckle's function.

What I am not confident in is the viability of using 3D printing for this task. While it is clearly a new and exciting service that is offered here, I am curious about a few factors.

In order for the buckles to be durable enough to actually be used as buckles, they will have to be made of a suitable material, which will most likely be more expensive. For example, stainless steel printing is $10.00 per cm3. A single buckle would be about 2.5'' x 2'' with a thickness based on strength of the material. In cm thats about 6.25cm x 5cm for the basic dimensions. Still relatively small, but that sounds expensive! Considering I would need multiple buckles I am beginning to wonder if 3D printing is appropriate for this idea.

Any thoughts? All comments appreciated!

Hi all,

I know it is sometime difficult for some designer to hollow their models.
As I am designing many dice these times, I decided to allow dice designers to use templates of the 5 platonic solids (that is the regular D4, D6, D8, D12 and D20).

index.php?t=getfile&id=7453&private=0


They are already hollow with a thickness of 1.5mm.
1.5 mm is suitable for Strong and Flexible material, for Detail materail and Alumide (and more, if you are lucky).

A small tunnel (0.01x0.01mm) is joining the external shell and the internal shell together (so that the internal shell will not be removed by the automatic check tools of Shapeways). The support material will get trapped inside (so your die will be heavy) but Shapeways won't charge you for that.

You can download them, choose the one you want and then decorate it as you wish (add numbers, symbols or whatever).

I hope you will find that useful...
Enjoy!

Recently got a first test print of something I'm working on at the moment. This is a figurine stand designed specifically for prototype figures. It basically allows you to place pretty much any figure on it, by having pins that can be moved to different positions of the surface. The purpose of this is, obviously, to save money, as I won't need to print any stands for prototypes of unfinished figures. And it looks pretty cool too.

http://blog.kaetemi.be/public/shapeways/.figstand_demo_s.jpg

As this is still a work in progress, it still has some issues. More specifically, with the printing of the pins. It seems my idea of having flexible pins didn't turn out that well, for two reasons. The first issue being that it seems 1mm pins have a fairly high printing failure rate. Interestingly Shapeways included the failed prints together with some extra ones that are properly printed. In the picture are supposed to be eight pins, count them. The second issue, is that the pins are too flexible this way, and therefore don't hold on to the figure properly.

http://blog.kaetemi.be/public/shapeways/.figstand_pins_s.jpg

So, what I'll do next, is try to print a set of solid pins in the range of 1 to 4mm with difference of 0.1mm between each (making a nice total of about 30 pins), and see how that turns out.

Hey everyone,

I just received an interesting PM from a Dice collector asking if i could group all my Parachute Dies on one page for him - to cut all the setup cost (if he were to order all of them one by one...)


So, if anyone is interested in ordering a grouped Dies from my 117 Dice designs - please message me with the dies on your wish list and i will prepare a private link for you.


Your favorite dies will be grouped on one ordering page and with one total low price .

(Don't forget .. you can order all your grouped dies with just one material)


So make your list and feel free to message me.


Cheers

These complex cube designs were all created in TopMod2 software. They were printed in 20 and 26 mm sizes to allow me evaluate the three dimensional shapes for possible use as cubelets for my puzzles.

Complex cube 2-7
A complex cube consisting of a central cross-shaped core and a surrounding shell. The aim of this piece was to give the maximum freedom of movement of the core inside the shell.

A tangled complex cube consisting of two interlocked tetrahedra.
http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=177177&f=photos/photo27552.jpg

Complex cube 4-8
This complex cube consists of a single piece. Each corner of the cube is connected to its neighbours by a tortuous path that can be traced through the interior of the cube. The whole cube is quite springy when printed in WSF plastic.

This complex cube consists of two separate parts interlocked. The central core can move freely and even rotate inside the surrounding cage.

I'm not sure if I'll actually use any of them for puzzles yet, but they look very decorative and are fun to fiddle with.

You can see the video of them here.

Now updated with a short description of each piece which I meant to include before.

Hi,

Since Shapeways evidentally is hoping to make some Halloween sales, I thought I'd help by offering "Sparkle Cat", whose colors are appropriate, I think. It should make a nice little Halloween trinket for a girl.

Hey Shapers,

Just realized now while uploading new dice designs that this category in my shop has now
62 Dice designs and i designed them all in the last month, Sept 2010 ! Shocked

Almost all of them have actual real pictures showing how they turned out in 3D printing.

Some more high-res pictures can be viewed at this thread:
http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=3307&a mp;start=0&


Thanks every one who ordered them - i will do my best to excel further at this interesting niche.

Hey, guys. Here's my latest set of designs; my first foray into jewellery (thumbnails are clickable for larger versions).

http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab218/DrawnSteelHero/th_i-chingpendants01.png

They're hexagrams, for fans (is that even the right word?) of the I Ching.
The hexagrams shown above each consist of two halves, an upper trigram and a lower trigram. There are eight trigrams (with upper and lower versions, totalling sixteen models). Any upper trigram can be worn on its own, or it can be threaded alongside a lower trigram for a combination of up to 64 hexagrams.

Above, from left to right, we have upper and lower versions of:
Chi'en (heaven/sky), K'un (earth), Chen (thunder), K'an (water), Ken (mountain), Sun (wind), Tui (marsh/lake), and Li (fire)

Below is an example of how the pendants go together. Here we have a Chen upper trigram and a K'an lower. By threading the Chen trigram on top of the K'an, we get the hexagram Chien (Removing Obstacles).

Hopefully I'll be test-printing a pair very soon, then uploading the full set! Smile

Here's the next character in my gladiator miniatures set. I started with the Secutor which is finished and uploaded. Now I'm half way done the Retiarii. I'm working on the hair, then I'll finish with the body's clothing. I'd just like a lil' feedback and comments, thanks. Smile

This was inspired by the now infamous barefoot bandit. He got his start near where I live over 2 years ago. (Google him, he's all over the news). He was "seen" barefoot, and also started leaving barefoot drawings in places he "visited". So I thought I'd create a pendant and some earrings for those who want to feel as free as Colton Harris-Moore is no longer.

Besides a 3D printed piece of artwork is better than a stupid T-Shirt right? Very Happy

It took a lot of sweat and pain to get this one ready in time, but I give you :

Eyjafjallajökull

index.php?t=getfile&id=3995&private=0

An ode to that beautiful volcano that gave us a Europe without planes and with clear blue skies, for a while anyway Very Happy

It consists of three parts :


  1. 1 An intricate network of two separate gyroid shapes, printed in color sandstone, with bright but subtle earth colors which serves as a base :
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/132491/eyjafjallaj__kull_base .html

  2. 2 In the base stands an Alumide (or S&F) Smoketree.
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/133549/eyjafjallaj__kull_smok e.html

  3. 3 And on the tips of the tree : anything Shapeways wishes to display or hang up for grabs : pendants, rings, bracelets, thingy's.
    Preferably from a wide range of Shapeways designers :
    http://www.shapeways.com/themes/jewelry
    And a handfull of summer bracelets of course Wink
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/130911/cubichain_bracelet.htm l



Hope you like it !

Stijn

Sidenote : The tips of the tree might be fragile in Alumide, but I wouldn't mind if a few pieces broke of, every seen perfect trees ? Wink

Hi all,

I was wondering I could try to print to try Gold Plated Stainless Steel.
I have been quite unfortunate these last times, with the new rules for Stainless Steel. 95% of my stainless steel designs cannot been printed anymore.
So I decided to do something new with 3mm thickness (yes, I know... it's big).
Here is the result : the fractal pendant.
index.php?t=getfile&id=3588&private=0
I hope it will not infringe the spaghetti rule of any other exisiting or non-existing-yet rule.
I will order it tonight and will let you know.
Bye.
