This is an updated model I made on over a year ago. Finally had time to revisit it and apply some tweaks given to me by the character's creator, Henrieke, then finish it with this final pose. The model was started in ZBrush, followed by re-topology in ZBrush, then more editing in Hexagon. Though, recently I purchased Modo and use it for the final posing, final painting, and renders.

I ordered the model from Shapeways and another from a different service. They looked pretty much the same and not sure which one this is, but it's the only one I have now to take a photo of after selling the other print at a recent event. So I put in the photo details that the finish may vary, such as glossiness, which is always the case as it depends how long it's left in the super glue that day, or how the print heads on the printer are, etc.

The model stands about 4 inches tall while standing on the tail. It's hollowed out with a long slice under the tail. There's extra raised details around the eyes, such as the iris, eyelashes, and eyebrows, which really adds to the model compared to simply textured on.

The character is for sale at $40 and Henrieke, owner of the character, gets half the profits earned. She also lives pretty close to Shapeways in the Netherlands.

Here's the Shapeways page with a 3D Turntable on Youtube:

Here's Henrieke's tumblr:


PS: Feel free to feature this model :)

Hi Shapeways fans,

Invisible Handlebar Cube was suggested by Kelvin Stott after seeing my Tunnel Cube. Invisible Handlebar Cube is functionally identical to Adam Cowan's Handlebar Cube, but now with invisibly-connected handlebars.

My second 3D print arrived! Something simple and sweet for your walls or desks. This piece was also drawn from a black and white illustration (see below). Although I had to edit out a lot of the finer details, I'm happy with how it turned out :)

I know its a bit late but I just found out about this forum. I decided to jump into 3D printing with Shapeways by designing a hummingbird pendant to give to my grandma for Christmas.

Since it was my first attempt I ordered in both White Strong & Flexible and Frosted Ultra Detail to see which one turned out best.

They both came out really cool with the nested hummingbird wobbling along its centerline as I intended. In the end I chose the FUD to give since it had a smooth finish and I liked how light diffuses through the material.

I did find the frosting pattern a bit curious and ended up polishing most of it out.

Thought I would post this for people to see the color that's possible with a little Golden yellow liquid Rit Dye.
I kind of wish we had more color options directly on shapeways, but if it's for yourself you can always use any fabric dye out there!

Hi All!
Our "HOT" ceramic product has just arrived!

Just like the former train, HOT is a fragrance diffuser, and it can also be used like a little home humidifier.

Thanks to Shapeways technology we have reached a quite complicated shape.
Waiting for your comments.. and eventually for your "like" !

Thanks a lot,

Hi Shapeways fans,

Workout Cube is a regular 3x3x3 Rubik's Cubes that requires a lot of force to turn. Its is meant for practicing speedcubing. It is a bit similar to altitude training for athletes and ankle weights for dance practice. In the early days, the top speed cubers used to be guitar players with strong fingers. Imagine training with this heavy rough cube, and then doing a speed run with a real Dayan!

The first version of this puzzle had friction plates to dampen the rotation of the centers, using vaseline as viscous dampening fluid. Unfortunately, the force was insufficient to impress speedcubers. A typic comment was "my Rubik's band cube is worse".

This new version of this puzzle uses six tiny gear boxes with planetary gears. The gearing ratio is 7-10-25, so the little spinner turns much faster than a face, thus increasing the friction significantly.

The idea for this puzzle came up in a discussion between Ulrich Meffert (the son of ...) and Oskar. Currently, speed-cubing is incomprehensible to watch, as it goes too fast to understand the solution approach used. A commentator could not keep up with the solver to provide commentary. One solution would be to provide commentary on a solving video in slow motion. Another solution would be to slow the solver down. As each turn takes a lot of force and time, the Workout Cube would force the solver to rethink solving algorithms, as now minimal-number-of-moves solution become more important than fast-to-finger-trick moves.

I ordered these fellas a couple weeks ago and they finally came! This is my second order and I'm super proud of what I got. Not only do the small details I placed on my designs translate well in White Strong and Flexible Polished, but they are also quite sturdy. I love how smooth my models feel from the polish.

These machines are made roughly to scale with 6mm wargaming as I'm quite fond of the genre and fond of amassing huge armies of vehicles and robots.

Essentially I designed a futuristic military APC, a heavy duty truck, and a battle mech. One thing I'm surprised was how the mech was able to stand up so well. When I was modeling it, I was afraid that the feet wouldn't be able to hold up the entire thing. I did scale the feet up a couple times but was afraid that the bigger they were, the more odd it'll look. I'm glad to be able to find an equalizer between the size of the feet and its ability to make the mech stand on its own.

Overall, I'm very satisfied and will continue to make more vehicles and mechs for my shop.

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Bubble Pent is a pentagonal variation to Mosaic Block and Bubble Block. It is a boublesized corner-turning pillowed pentagon prism. As a result of the pillowing, the puzzle never exposes any ridges mid-turn. This makes it a child-safe puzzle :-).

My Truncated Sphere D50 arrived.
This is a die with 50 flat faces located around a sphere.
This model has been made a long time ago (August 2011), but has become public only now in December 2013.
The reason is that the numbering has been carefully studied to ensure a maximum fairness (a lot of groups of faces have their sums identical), and I wanted to keep the numbering secret, the time for me to challenge anybody to find a better numbering. But making a challenge with a reward is quite complex. And now, so much time has passed that I even do not remember the peculiarities of my own numbering.
So, let's forgot all that and enjoy it as it is!

So many things to design, so little time...

Received my first brass and bronze prints today. The first two are of my popular sheriff's badge pet tag that have been made slightly thinner to help offset the increased cost for anyone interested in ordering one in brass,bronze, or silver.

The first one is in polished brass.

The second one is in polished bronze

And a side by side comparison

I wasn't expecting so much of the "marbled" look in the bronze, but it is starting to grow on me as it adds a bit of an "antique" look to the tag. The marbling isn't as extensive as it may appear in the picture as some of that is the background reflection. The back side also shows much less of the effect so it is quite random where it appears in the material.

I also ordered a copy of my .45ACP bullet pet tag. I have to say I am really impressed at how well the non-polished brass turned out. There is almost no signs of the print layers on the surface. I definitely see myself ordering more in these materials in the future.

Well, it's that time of year. I've been slacking off in my printing (too much Baldur's Gate?), but I managed to make Christmas presents this year, just in time. After a few mishaps, I'm in good shape.

1. These angel ornaments took a try to get mostly right. I messed up the colors on the first try. The only thing I'm bummed about now is I accidentally blurred the colors on the sword guy when I applied some sealant to protect from color loss and smooth the surface. Apparently, my sealant was a little too wet from me keeping the paintbrush moist. Eh, well - I'll do better next time. My two younger siblings will (I hope) like these decorations

2. On the left is a music holder - to keep those pesky pages from flipping closed at the most inopportune moment! On the right is my particular favorite of the bunch - an ornament for my mom. I applied some metallic paints in places to bring out the details. I think it's a little too big for a pendant, but that's for her to decide. I just make the things!

3. This is a (belated) anniversary gift for my parents from myself and my older sister. The polished silver really comes out nicely. Shapeways polishing is nicer AND (judging from one experience, which is totally a sufficient sample size) cheaper than having a jeweler do it locally. Although it's entirely possible I caught the jeweler on a bad day and/or I angered him in some way...? I dunno. Anyway, I like the shine on this. We'll see if I can keep my grubby fingerprints to a minimum until the gift wends its way home.

4. This is a smaller version of the Bringer. He's been tweaked somewhat to make sure he's printable at the new scale, and I fixed his minor helmet problem (no mouth hole! he must get hungry in there). A friend of mine made an off-handed comment about the model a while back, saying he liked it but it was bigger than he'd normally use. And he likes to paint, so I can give the unpainted model and then make more stuff! Score one for the good guys!

5. This is a tie bar for my dad. This photo is actually before I shined it up a tad using a random home remedy for shining bronze. (lemon juice and baking soda) Turns out it works! I'm currently applying thin coats of sealant to the back first, hoping that this will prevent future corrosion. So I haven't taken a more updated picture. The polished bronze is very sharp, other than the oxidation that I observed.

I never know what to get my sister-in-law for Christmas, but then I realized she loves her tree, and she loves her house- Problem solved.


This is her house:


And here is picture of the model before I applied a little silver glitter paint and a gold thread (embroidery floss) both from Michaels.


I don't mean to come across as conceited, but I am really happy with this one.

Today I received an order with four of my impossible triangles printed in metal. I am very happy with the result that I want to share some pictures right away.

First my "Mini" impossible triangle in three different metals. From left to right: Matte Bronze Steel, Raw Brass, and Polished Bronze.


I used to have only one impossible triangle printed in Matte Bronze Steel. Now I have three variants printed in this material, from left to right: Cubed & Compact, Mini, and Cubed.


They're all available in my shop:

The perfect gift for those always asking for the impossible! :-)

I hope you like them.
