This was the first time I got something in premium silver. I'd only tried the polished silver before this.

Hi,

the arrival of the new models lighted up the grey and rainy day. And now it's perfect.
One of the models is already in my new shop WILTD and the other will follow.

I've got some Flowers:
index.php?t=getfile&id=81497&private=0
I think I'm going to pick them up and make some Pendants out of them!

Do you know the problem of finding the loose end of a ball of yarn? This was the inspiration for this balls:

And the glass perfectly fits into the groove of the wired frame.

So, all in all, it made my day.

What do you think?

Best
Andrea

Hi Shapeways fans,

Oskar's Cubes was mass-produced in metal by Bits and Pieces. Now it is sold out. Fans keep asking for this puzzle, and vintage samples are hard to find. Therefore I made this 3D-printed metallic plastic version of the puzzle. As Tony Fisher's had already demonstrated with his 3D-printed Astrolabacus version, 3D-printing is not just for stand-alone productions or preludes to mass-production, but also for resurrection of forever-sold-out mass products.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle at my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Non-Twisty Puzzles Forum
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Three models of Dupin Cyclides, two in experimental full color plastic, the last one in full color sandstone.
Plastic is not very rigid, I should have made the model a little bit bigger...

My Christmas Decoration arrived this week :-)
Although one part was broken, I really liked the outcome of the design. And as always, I am impressed by 3D printing.

Here are some photos of the decoration. So, what do you think? Any suggestions or possible improvements?

Some small stars with a bigger one in the background:

Some stars for decorating thin objects like a mirror. These can simply be clipped on.

One ordered mirror decoration was broken. But shapeways' support was really great by offering a reprint. To improve the structure of the model, I might do a minor update soon.

Update 8th December: Updated the mirror decoration model to slightly increase thickness of the clamps to hold to the mirror. This should not affect printability.

I received my first print, and I'm both impressed and disappointed.

Impressed at the accuracy of the print. Sure, it's a little rough but I expected that. My model is tiny and I designed it to be minimal as I was considering ordering the hinge in brass after inspecting the plastic sample.

My disappointment is due to my own design. In my enthusiasm to make it as minimal as possible - I made it very thin, right on the line of printable. Unfortunately, the model has some weak points and I eventually broke it (and glued it back together)

I've since revised my design, given up on the idea of having it printed in brass, and have placed my order for the re-designed (beefier) model.

After sitting patiently waiting for the package to come in it finally arrive and what treasures it held! Working on improving my Torrent Mech and offering some different options was worth every second!

First up I made a smaller "Miniature/Figure" version which I had printed in WSFP and FD. It's a single piece and only barely more than an inch tall;

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g281/MikeTehFox/TorrentMiniProductWSFP01_zps6509e1d2.jpg
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g281/MikeTehFox/TorrentMiniProductFD01_zpse438c571.jpg

I had initially only done the WSFP as a test so see how poorly all the details would be done at such a small scale but while it's still not as crisp as the FD print a lot of details came through pretty well all things considered, I might even try ordering some in color later on as well. You can find this in my shop HERE.

I also made up a "model kit" version as well, this is much bigger, about 2.5 times the size and comes in 29 pieces all sprued together for those who want a bit more choice in how it's posed;

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g281/MikeTehFox/TorrentKitProductBSFP01_zps115b66b6.jpg

Once assembled it will look something like this but slightly larger(about 20-25% larger);

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7573/15056790173_41194b5d23_c.jpg

I should hopefully get the chance to build it tomorrow or the day after, the blue should photograph much better than the white! You can find this in my shop HERE.

Now that these are basically complete and I have a much better grasp on the process and how far the limits can be pushed I'll definitely be doing more of this, it's almost addicting to see my 3D work become something actually physical after all these years of "settling" with modding video games! xD

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.)

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.

A new breed of soldier for a new breed of war. The Future Soldier was launched in 2020 to deal with close combat inner city warfare once the powers of the world realised that the time of the big bombs were gone and only elite infantry could win wars.

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.

Watch the YouTube video.

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.

Here's a nice Ravenclaw house ring I received a bit back. I purposely chose it in an unpolished material. I like the old feel the rough texture gives it.

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.

Below is a picture of the front. The details of the door and the horizontal tracks for the door to open turned out great. (The doors don't actually open).

Below is a picture of the side. The details of the windows and the roof turned out great as well.
index.php?t=getfile&id=72539&private=0

Here is a picture of the back of the barn, open so small animals or what not can be placed inside.

Here is the Shapeways render of the barn. The final product came out looking very close to the render.
