Hello everybody.

I've been lurking and occasionally posting on these forums for a while. I made several prints, mostly jewelry as that's pretty easy come up with and doenst need any texturing or rigging.

But now I have made a character for my university as part of an assignment and I would like to pose and print him. I could do the easy thing and just print him in FCS as is, but that would be really boring. so I'm going to be posing him in a nice pose that fits him.

As this is going to be my first venture into FCS printing, I was wondering about a few things. As you can see in the screenshot, this character has some shaders on him. I have some ideas on how to fake those and get more detail in the print, using displacement maps.
I was just hoping to get some advice about some of the pittfalls I could run into with printing a model like this.
If anyone has any advice, please let me know Smile

I built a textured model in Meshlab and exported it as a .wrl for printing at shapeways. That worked. Now I would like to combined several such textured models into a single file, but I cant figure out method short of combining untextured models and retexturing them all as a group. Any solutions?

I've been working on models of the sonic screwdrivers from Doctor Who for years now and over the past few months have tweaked them to be perfect for 3d print applications. I already orders all the parts but while waiting, I'm overly anxious to paint and assemble the models, so I'm occupying myself by posting about them on forums like this one. Without further ado, here are the 3d rendered models:

Hi forum members!

I discovered this website today and it inspired me to design something new. I have come up with a holder for the wireless charger of the Nokia Lumia 920. This way its easier to interact with and read while its charging. Lots of people got this charger for free with their 920, so i wanted to offer something unique to make the charger more useful.

But i have doubts about if its printable or not and if the holder could withstand a weight of 280 gram/9.88 ozs. What do you think?

I appreciate your help!

Kind regards,

Relief

I'm trying to create photorealistic scale models of animals. This is my first attempt of creating an organic model. I've experiance with architectural 3D design, but organic models are a different league I've noticed. I've finished my first animal: The Giraffe. Here a few pics of the two models I've made:

index.php?t=getfile&id=24759&private=0

I've also tried to give my shop a nice design and make my shopsections clear. http://www.shapeways.com/shops/mininature
When you've some feedback on my models or shop, that will be very helpfull. English isn't my native language, so if you spot some strange phrases or words in my shop, I'll be thankfull when you let me know.
In the future I'll upload more different animals & poses.

Hello. I'm attempting my first print with Shapeways and wanted to get some opinions of people who have already had prints made, and/or Shapeways associates.

My wife is from the Bahamas and I wanted to make her something that reminded her of home. These are based on the Bahamian flag. I plan on printing these in polished silver and don't want to waste the $40 if they will not turn out very well.

The size is 1.3 inches. Will the detail be translated well at that size?

I am ordering test prints today (in a bunch of different materials) of my series of coral-inspired models. They are basically all the same model, but are sized to to have similar price structures. Additionally, the WSF model has been hollowed in order to make it larger. And both the WSF and Ceramic models have the three base nodules cropped.

The model was generated with a single mathematical expression using the implicit surfaces filter in MeshLab, and has 3-fold rotational (trilateral) symmetry.

model pages:
Fuddle Silver
Fuddle Steel/Bronze
Fuddle Color (sandstone)
Fuddle Ceramic
Fuddle Plastic (hollow)

I'll post pictures as soon as I get the printed pieces!
Meanwhile, here are some renderings...

Hi People.
I have finally redesigned my rocket to fix several flaws inherent in the first design.
This version should be more heat resistant, stronger, less likely to loose the nosecone after launch and handle transport better.

renamed to the SPRO MKII.

I should be purchasing and test firing the rocket over the next few weeks, untill than it is FLY AT OWN RISK if you decide to purchase it
(but sometimes the fun is finding cover and not knowing exactly what it will do)

also due to more material used in this version the price has increased:(

please don't hesitate to tell me what i have done wrong, or any improvements that i could make XD

This my first try with strong & flexible plastics. It's a fruit bowl also useful as decorative centerpiece. Base thickness is 3,2 mm and lateral wall thickness is 2 mm. Bowl diameter is about 200 mm. On your opinion (experience) are the thicknesses appropriate?
Thank you very much.
