In case anyone had any doubt about the flexibility of 3D printed materials when used for clothing, I've got a delightful little snippet of video from this past weekends NY Comic Con. I created this performance outfit for Veronica last year, and it has been used in a number of performances. It's 2mm thick to retain flexibility, and snaps together with printed-in fasteners that act as hinges to permit extreme flexibility.

Many people think of Hula-hooping as basically standing there as a hoop goes around you, but this clip might change that perception- the movements are fast and extreme. The design holds up very well, and it's very comfortable.

YouTube videos can't be embedded in this forum, but the video is here:

Hooper Hero demo at NY Comic Con 2013


...and a few images to give you the idea.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Tunnel Cube can be considered the inverse of Adam G. Cowan's Handlebar Cube. Whereas Handlebar Cube has three handles at the outside that bandage non-adjacent corners and edges together, Tunnel Cube has three tunnels that achieve the same effect. The holes enable you to look inside the puzzle and to see which corners and edges are bandaged through these tunnels.

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

Hello All!

This is my first forum post, my first 3D project, and first 3D printing experience!

I made a pendant based off of a batik fabric design. Batik is a wax resist techniques for dyeing/painting fabric. It is thought to have originated in Java, Indonesia.

My trio of 3D printed ornaments is complete, it consists of the Captured Snowflake, Snowman and now this Customized Spinning Bauble Ornament

This is a customizable bauble ornament: within both of the two balls, which are modeled in the style of intricate snowflakes, are two lines of text that can be customized during the order process by the buyer, each line of text can hold up to 10 capital letters (if spaces are included, these count as letters of the 10 letters per line), the whole ornament will then be 3D printed for you with your message or name trapped on the inside (the example featured in the pictures and video has the message "MERRY CHRISTMAS" in the center).
The inner of the two balls freely rotates on an axle and spins if you blow on the top or bottom edge of the inner ball (using a stray is easier but it works well without) creating an interesting optical effect (watch the YouTube video).

There is a small grappling hook styled attachment at the top which allows a piece of string or thread to be attached to the ornament so it can be hung up.

I have designed two of these ornaments with preset messages inside, the first with the message "MERRY CHRISTMAS" and the other has the message "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" (available at the respective hyperlinks) these are cheaper to buy as no customization is necessary.

Take a look at my Snowman design which consists of three of this bauble ornament scaled down and interlocked with each other in the style of a snowman (it even has eyes and a nose!).

This ornament is 3D printed on demand for you, it is 3D printed in one go and comes out of the 3D printer already fully assembled!

I design this little dragon that hugs on; I did not know what material to print it in so I chose the new material: elasto plastic.
The material is light but super strong and is very comfortable while wearing; here it is tell me what you think?

Krystian's Skewb was invented by Krystian Wilisowski. It is a Master Skewb where the slice layer has some additional cuts. The puzzle is related to Carl Hoff's Doctor Skewb.

This sword was inspired by a game that made me want to become a 3D modeler in the first place. I was looking and looking for a long time to see if any cons had any thing to show my love toward this game but nothing now I have something; I think It came out lovely!!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Ring World is a maze ball. The yellow ball turns around within the black ring. When the ball and the ring are correctly aligned, then the ring+ball together can be split in half, and the treasure inside the ball can be removed.

Slight bit of cleanup required due to the chalky nature of WSF, but I'm pretty happy with that - I think I might order another one in the detail plastic and see just how much detail from the mesh carries through.

It's roughly correct for a 1/6th scale model if anyone is interested Wink

I printed a pair of shoes for the Busou Shinki line of posable figures.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2857/9957126375_9dc9f8b8ce.jpg

They turned out well, nice and smooth looking! This was my first 3d print, and I wasn't expecting the WSF to feel as chalky as it did.

They LOOK nice though, and that is what matters.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Incomprehensible Cube was inspired by an idea from Bram Cohen. It looks like a regular Rubik's Cube, but it has two edges with two peek holes each. Those are the "special edges". The special-edges layer and the two layers behind it can all turn independently. Like a regular Rubik's Cube. The slice layer between the special edges turns like a slice layer, while the two special edges remain coupled to each other. The opposite faces at the top and bottom are connected with a rod, which can be observed through the peek holes.

This puzzle is another demonstration that a slice move is different from an opposite faces move. This was also what distinguished Double Trouble A and B.

The operation of the puzzle as a whole is quite incomprehensible, hence the puzzle's name. The peek holes help understand the operation and orientation of the mechanism. The mechanism is deeper-than-origin cut.

Watch the YouTube video.

From Wikipedia: "Little Dedo is a small gargoyle with pointy ears and human-like feet on the Notre Dame Cathedral.
When the cathedral was built in 1160, a nun from a tiny convent in Provence who disliked the menacing gargoyles that were put on top of the building to ward off evil spirits, disguised herself as a workman, gained entrance to the work site and quickly carved the sculpture from a small block before placing it on the highest roof.<br>
The gargoyle was undiscovered for centuries until a small boy, lost in the labyrinthine structure, stumbled off a ledge and rolled down a roof into the arms of the gargoyle. Since its rediscovery, the creature has been affectionately known as Little Dedo, the gargoyle with the crossed toes."

I modeled this not as an exact replica, but one would certainly recognise it as a copy. The photo's show the model printed in Sandstone.

I have a 4cm and 5cm version in my store. Links http://shpws.me/pfju and http://shpws.me/pfjx

Hi Shapeways fans,

Double Trouble is a set of two twisty puzzles, based on an idea by Bram Cohen. The two cuboid puzzles seem to have the same behavior at start.
-The green and blue faces turn freely
-The yellow and white faces are coupled to each other
-The red and orange faces are completely blocked.

A difference arises when one turns the coupled yellow and white by a quarter turn. Then
-in version A, the red and orange faces remain blocked and the green and blue faces can still turn freely, whereas
-in version B, the green and blue faces become locked and the red and orange faces can suddenly turn freely.

Hi Shapeways fans,

All Around is a twisty puzzle that combines properties from Mixup Cube, Babyface Cube, Super Edges and Zygmunt's Cube. With all these mechanisms combined, it is quite an all-rounder.

Quiz question: which puzzles from the Twisty Puzzles Museum can be made by unbandaging All Around?

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Knotsplosion is a put-together puzzle with three identical cubic looped pieces. When assembled, the three loops intersect at four point. The puzzle disassembles first in a smooth coordinated motion. However, the real puzzle is then to get the pieces free from each other. The assembly poses the opposite, even harder problem.

Surprisingly, Knotsplosion is a spin-off of the Hurly Burly puzzle. Hurly Burly has three loop-shaped piece that are black, green and blue. They fit together in an unexpected topological fashion that allows them to be taken apart. When I discovered this topology on my computer screen in May 2005, I built a cubic model of centicubes. I was quite surprised to find out that even the cubic version was hard to put together or take apart, even though there were just three identical loopy pieces. Tom Lensch made some big wooden samples and Hanayama even made a metal prototype in 2007, which was too delicate unfortunately. At the request of a customer of mine, I am now making it available via Shapeways.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Offset Cube looks like a squashed 2x2x7 puzzle, shaped to a cube. However, the axes of the inner 1x2x2 have an offset by half of the width of a piece. Because of this, pieces can change layer while playing the puzzle. This makes the puzzle harder to solve.

Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Hurly Burly is a set of four six-piece burrs, intertwined in a spiral fashion. The puzzle has nine parts, three of which are "8-shaped". And the other six are "eight-divided-in-two". The puzzle has a very unexpected first solving move. The two yellow pieces are turned in a helical path, in which one pushes the other and vice verse. This is a new type of coordinated motion. Also the linking of the three 8-shaped pieces (green, blue, black) is unexpected, namely the fact that they come apart and that they are NOT linked together like Borromean rings or so.

The first Hurly Burly prototype was made by George Miller in 2005. George also gave the puzzle its name. "Hurly burly" means "noisy confusion, tumult". It also was the title of a dark comedy play. Moreover, it relates to the classic type of "burr puzzle".

I used this puzzle (3D-printed by Shapeways) as my exchange gift for IPP33 in Narita. I made a few extra samples, which are being sold by PuzzleMaster.

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Ambigear Cube is a 4x4x4 Rubik's Cube with a gearing mechanism inside. It's name is from "ambiguous gearing". In a regular gearing mechanism, all parts have direct interact with each other and if you block one part then the other parts are blocked as well. Not for this mechanism. If you lock the top two layers to each other then the top two still mesh. Same for the bottom two layers and middle two layers. This makes the puzzle confusing to solve.

This puzzle uses the same gearing mechanism as the Geared 1x1x4, which has two linked planetary gear systems.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Jumble Pebble is yet another jumbling puzzle in the vein of Meteor Madness, Astroid Attack and Big Boulder. However, the geometry of this jumbling puzzle is an enigma. Can you find it at Wikipedia? Or will its geometry remain as illusive as Jumble Rock?

This is my winning entry from the custom character contest Shapeways had a few weeks ago. The print came out very close to the original, you can see the comparison between the rendered image and the printed one below.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Deep Penta is a design inspired by the "deeper-than-origin" discussion at the Twisty Puzzles Forum, triggered by David Pitcher's RotoPrism 2.

The purpose of the big hole in one of the corners is to show that the mechanism of the puzzle is deeper-than-origin. However, only two deeper-than-origin rotations are enabled (two screws at the inside). Some shallow rotations are enabled too (screws visible at the outside), but not all. This makes the puzzle confusing to solve, as sometimes rotations are blocked. The screws are kept visible to reduce that confusion again.

There is something paradoxical about "deeper-than-origin". This puzzle is deeper-than-origin, because only some of the cuts are deeper-than-origin. If all cuts were deeper-than-origin, then the puzzle itself would no longer be classified as deeper-than-origin. Strange, isn't it?
