This took a looong time to arrive, but worth it in the end.

Do you love coffee as much as this little guy?

Sadly unavailable due to issues with ceramics, but fingers crossed for the future. :)

Wanted to share my beautiful mathematical art piece I call the Mobius Skeleton. This elegant pendant will be sure to turn heads with its 3D ribbed structure and bright and brilliant gold/steel look and presence. Some may say it looks a bit busy but so do I. You can help this model be my first to go from beta to product with you much appreciated purchase of support. You can find this and other beta products at https://www.shapeways.com/designer/BryanH Your feedback is always welcomed. Thanks again Shapeways.

Now ready to be personalized, this bottle opener was designed to fit as many as 14 characters on the top and 8 optional characters on the bottom (including spaces). It would make a great conversation starter!

This is the first model i ever created. I started learning blender around 2 months ago, primarily to remodel/change existing files.

index.php?t=getfile&id=77564&private=0
Fig. 1: Bubblewrap !

With this, i started with multiple pictures of a printing machine (a Heidelberger Speedmaster SX74) and created the model from scratch, eyeballing measurements most of the time.

index.php?t=getfile&id=77565&private=0
Fig. 2: Fits nicely

The machine is modular, so that each printing tower can be arranged as needs be (and i can potentially add more components later). The components are printed in Full Color Sandstone but for the handles and buttons - they were too small and were printed in Strong White Flexible, painted and will be glued on.

index.php?t=getfile&id=77566&private=0
Fig. 3: Complete machine (for now)

I'm working in a research project, where we use augmented reality to further improve the vocational training of young professionals, that are learning to work with offset printing machines in germany. As the machines get more and more complex, they lose the connection between hard facts they learn in school and the reality of day-to-day work with the machine. We aim to create a solution, that shows processes inside the machine, that are otherwise hidden and as such hard to understand - in most training material all they get is a simple diagram to visualize a complex system of interdependent machine parts.

index.php?t=getfile&id=77567&private=0
Fig. 4: First Augmented Reality test with an ad-hoc marker image and our prototype

To enable schools that have no printing machine to train their students on, this is our first try to enable our augmented reality solution with a miniature surrogate.

More images of my unpacking can be found in the album!

Cheers,
DMNC

So, I wrote up a chunk of PHP to convert a low-res PNG, pixel by pixel, into a full-color sandstone model. Then I set it loose on the character sprites from the classic FPS game Wolfenstein 3D. They seem pretty sturdy and are just thick enough to stand on their own.

(I'll note that I'm not planning on selling these, so no need to warn about IP issues.)

It's been a busy week... 2nd item arrived today ^_^

Modelled using data released by the ESA, this little charm could equally be used as a pendant or key ring attachment.

Shown here in polished grey steel and available in other metals and plastic in my shop, here.

As a huge LEGO fan, specially LEGO Star Wars, I had to make some custom weapons of my own. I think this is the ultimate level of loving LEGO, make your own!

So here they are, my first set of custom Lego Star Wars weapons 3d printed and fit the hands almost perfectly!!!! Kind of hard to see the fine details though because of the lighting and crappy iPhone 4 camera. But pretty happy overall!!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Deep Cube is a make-over of the Bingo Cube. Bingo Cube was invented and built by Evgeniy Grigoriev, with support from Aleh Hladzilin based on an idea posted at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. It can be considered a two-layer variation to the Dual-Fold Floppy Cube by Sigurd Wedel.

Deep Cube is a so-called "deeper-than-origin-cut" twisty puzzle. Other examples are David Pitcher's award-winning Rotoprism 2 and Enabler Cube. Deep Cube has a big hole to show the core. This helps understanding the mechanism. Only two faces can turn, namely those not interfered by the big hole. Two layers always turn together because of the deeper-than-origin mechanism.

Deep Cube has a mechanism that locks and unlocks faces, similar to Bingo Cube. Whereas Bingo Cube has a special edge piece that unlocks the two centers that it is adjacent to, Deep Cube has locking pins in all edge pieces to locks faces together that are opposite the big hole. The mechanism of Deep Cube is similar to Enabler Cube, where the "enabler" piece disables rotation of opposite faces.

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Full Turn Cube is a fully non-functional 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube. Whereas Half Turn Cube supports only half turns (180), Full Turn Cube only supports full turns (360 degrees). This is achieved by offsetting all six rotation axes a bit.

The purpose of this non-puzzle is to demonstrate Rubik's style turning to children without the hassle of solving the puzzle every time that they scramble it. The purpose of this non-puzzle is also to confuse cubers for the amusement of its designer, and perhaps some inspiration to other cube designers.

The color plastic process is a bit expensive so I shrunk them down. Here are three teeny BMO versions that arrived today.

.index.php?t=getfile&id=74372&private=0

The one at the left has no arms or legs to make it crushproof, but there are holes so you can add your own arms or legs using wire or your own 3D printed appendages. The middle one is pretty much the original version I started with but was crushed by overzealous shipping department bubble wrapping. The one on the right has leg pegs so it can be inserted into a diorama and it appears to be crush resistant.



Here's a better view of the middle mangled version.

index.php?t=getfile&id=74373&private=0

I think I will be able to bend the arms and legs back into position. But Shapeways, do you have gorillas or body builders wrapping your outgoing product? You spend all that time building these nice models and then you send them to the shipping department torture chamber. Is there a way to avoid this problem by ordering a gift box for delicate items that can be packed with cotton balls, mini-peanut packing, or something else to gently cradle them during shipping? These are the little detail type problems that never seem to get proper attention or solutions at Shapeways.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Osdas 4x4 is a sliding-piece puzzle without a frame. Regular sliding piece puzzle, like the classic famous 15 puzzle, have pieces sliding in a frame, such that they do not fall out. The Boomdas puzzle is a 3x3 sliding puzzle from Japan has no frame, while the pieces still hold together. Boomdas has a cubic sibling called Muto Cube. More info here, here and here. However, one can easily cheat with Boomdas (and Moto Cube) by sliding them apart and putting them back together.

Osdas 4x4 is a frame-less sliding puzzle similar to Boomdas, but with links between the pieces that prevent the puzzle from coming apart. No cheating with this one!

This puzzle has the interesting property that it is possible to swap some adjacent pieces, e.g. 9 and 10, which is not possible with the classic 15-puzzle.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Key Maze is a puzzle that I designed in 1987 and prototyped in wood. It is a mechanical maze, where the object is to get each ring around its key. The puzzle has been mass-produced in metal since 1995 and as plastic premium since 2007. Also, several smaller-scale productions were made from hand-cut wood and laser-cut wood. As things go with nice ideas, there exist also some unauthorized productions in plastic and wood (no link).

Anyway, Sjaak Griffioen asked me to design six variations of this puzzle in 2006, which he prototyped in wood. Unfortunately, we could not find any buyers. So these variations are now available as 3D-prints.

The puzzle set has some bonus challenges.
1) Make three pairs of keys, and put each ring around the key of its partner.
2) Put the keys in a circle, and have each ring around the key of its neighbor.
As not all rings fit around all keys, both 1) and 2) have a unique solution.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the set at my Shapeways Shop.

After waiting for 3 weeks, all items have arrived. Aside from the Boo, I've also printed my city concept, sniper rifle as well as the space ship. Sucks my space ship didn't turn out as expected, should have picked WSF instead of metallic plastic. The sniper rifle looks pretty good in metallic plastic though as I can still see some of the details. The city concept is ok as well in WSF!

What do you guys think?

A red barn printed in polished red strong and flexible. We couldn't be happier with the results. Kudos to my loving wife who took the great pictures. For reference, the barn is about 4.3cm tall and 5.5cm long.

We just received these 2 pieces in full color plastic. They are meant for use in the popular board game Pandemic. In the past we have purchased them in white strong and flexible and painted them, but I decided to see how they would look in full color plastic. The models were made in ViaCad9 and exported as .WRL (VRML).

Below is a picture from right out of the box. The models had a fair amount of white dust on them. The base is supposed to be green and the top embossed symbol black. The black coloring fades to gray/white on the extremes of the symbol. Where the biohazard symbol gets thinner at the edge of the model, it becomes very brittle. I'm guessing this is caused by the heat curing. The full color plastic model checker did indicate a yellow caution for thin walls where the piece is brittle. However, this model made with strong and flexible plastic has no issues in the thinner parts.
index.php?t=getfile&id=72535&private=0

Here is an image after we used a tooth brush to clean off the remaining white dust. You can see there are still white spots on both the black and green parts of the pieces, that seem to be included in how it was colored.

Here is a picture of them printed in white strong and flexible and then painted using water based acrylics. Please excuse my mediocre painting skills...

Below is Shapeways rendering for Full Color Sandstone of the model.
index.php?t=getfile&id=72537&private=0

Bottom line, we were not happy with the results of the full color plastic prints. The colors did not turn out vibrant and the brittle edges make me wary that they would stand up well to constant use with the board game. The material feels rougher to the touch than unpolished white strong and flexible. We will probably stick with painting when more than 1 color is needed in a model for now.

Hey everyone,

I wanted to test FCP as I was curious about shape based coloring applied to 'organic' objects.
Reading through the Forum I can confirm two issues:
Yellow turns out as orange, weak structures can be deformed.
Also material isn't as strong as WSF - pieces of the blue shell broke off when dropping the 10 cm diameter ball about 50 cm (stupid me - had it outside to make the smell go away when either a strong gust or a curious bird kicked it from the table :-/ )
Attaching three images.
1. Details - nice, isn't it :)

2. Comparison between Meshlab render as designed and the actual print:

3. Deformed object - one of three - the other two are fine. (I'm in contact with support about this already.)

Hi Shapeways fans,

Dutch Rings is a puzzle ring that I designed in 1989. It is inspired on the classic "Turkish" puzzle rings, but using a cubic grid instead of smooth bands. The object of the puzzle is the same. Mix up the bands and then try to reconstruct the ring. The nice thing about this puzzle is that all pieces are linked together, so pieces cannot get lost.

Watch the YouTube video of the metal version.
Watch the YouTube video of the plastic version.

Received another batch of custom weapons I made for deluxe-class Transformers figures. This time I ordered them in Metallic Plastic and they came out extremely well. I'm happy with the results and more importantly how they look on one of my favorites, DOTM Roadbuster.

Here the last one from the "Splash" series. And the only one that has a twist in this series. It is designed for metal but ...heh does not look bad in Black WSF , budget constrains.

Chained normally it is a plus , chained other way it is an X.

Hope you all like it!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Bram's Magic Revisited is a complete redesign of Bram's Magic. Bram's Magic was invented by Bram Cohen. It is a set of six balls with grooved, connected in a loop. The set of six can shapeshift in carious ways, resulting in scrambling of the color pattern. The object of the puzzle is to fold it back to a flat 2x3 shape with all white up and black down.

This revisited version turns super smoothly, even better than the previous prototype.

Watch the YouTube video.

Plus and minus forms a cross , representing the realism , the fact that you must balance the positive and negative in life in order to be blessed with success.

A bit of architectural look on it.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Star Beams is a put-together interlocking puzzle. The puzzle has six pentagram-shaped beams that are woven through each other. It was in 1989 that I discovered this geometry. It is based the geometry of a regular dodecahedron (with twelve pentagonal faces). When each of the six axes is offset a bit, this nice tetrahedral geometry results. In 1989, I made a cardboard prototype with pentagonal beams. In 2004, George Miller 3D-printed Star Beams on his 3D printer. Now, it is available as 3D-print from Shapeways and sold by PuzzleMaster.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy a fully dyed and assembled sample from PuzzleMaster.

I just received these today.
Overall I'm still very excited about the fact that printing plastic with color is possible, even though it wasn't a successful experiment.
Like a lot of you, I'm left with very similar result with this material.

Color
- Color came out super pale and a lot brighter than what it should be.
Material Weakness
- Thinner part of the print got bent quite a bit, when it arrived. I'm not sure it's bent from the way it's packaged or it just started to sag after it got extracted out of the printer. But it is definitely bendy enough that I could push things into places.
- Some part was droopy like I wouldn't expect from strong & flexible plastics. (tip of push pins) And I don't think this part was caused by packing.
- Cuff (pic shown below) won't hold it's shape. Let's say, it's almost elastic without being strong.
