I needed a weekly pillbox, but all the models I found were very big. I decided to try to model my own one, to put into a metal box.

I already built a 3D cardioid a while ago, which was used for the cover of last Marillion's album.
Here are two new versions. I am waiting for the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd to call me...index.php?t=getfile&id=29464&private=0

I received these prints the other day from Shapeways. It took some trial and error to get the sizes just right due to the shrinkage and other factors in the manufacturing process. I really appreciate Shapeways customer service working with me on getting these printed as there are a few critical areas that are below the general minimum wall thickness and detail level for stainless. I love the way these turned out. Especially in the bronze finish.

Note: While I did research and haven't found any law in the US restricting the buying/manufacturing of handcuffs/keys, (only laws against where some can be taken and how they are carried) to avoid any potential concern about potential misuse I am currently only selling these to verified Law Enforcement / Security personnel. I am also only offering them in the stainless steel -based materials and not any of the materials that could be used to circumvent a metal detector.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Double Dino was suggested by Joan Fons. It combines the operation of two half Dino Cubes at both ends, and a 1x3x3 Floppy Cube mechanism in the middle.

I created this for a co-worker of mine, who wanted a super-villain version of himself (hence, no hair). We had a fair amount of correspondence while I designed. He was particularly excited the day I showed him the render with electricity arcing down the sword. The print turned out well (a tad over 2.4 inches tall). I am sorry that I forgot to give the coat a bit more wrinkles and definition, though.

"Why could they not see that this was the only way? They had brought this on themselves. He averted his gaze as the harsh glow and grim hum swelled in the place that would have been his hand. A moment later, the kickback shoved him backwards in the dirt, knocking a few tears off his glistening cheeks."

Hi!

Finally got to upload some pictures of "V-Mark" - a bookmark with Voronoi texture:
- Voronoi structure
- Free floating ball in top structure
- Very flexible and robust
- Thin base to fit in any book
- Nice grip top

What do you think?
Cheers!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Switched Maze is a mechanical maze. The object is to roll the metal ball from "Start" to "Goal". The ball is impeded by gates at several points in the maze. By rolling the ball against the levers, gates can be opened and closed.

This maze is related to Robert Abbott's Sliding Door Maze and Eldon Vaughn's Amaze. The rules of Abbott's puzzle is electronically enforced by the software implementation. The rules of Vaughn's maze is psychologically enforced by the game rule that says not to lift the stylus from the board. The switched Maze is fully mechanically enforced. That is, you cannot cheat without taking the puzzle apart or removing the transparent cover.

Switched Maze implements logical one-way gates, logical crossings and a Chinese-Rings type of passing point. Most likely, one could build a Turing Machine using the Switched Maze concept.

Got these in today with part of my order. I was in need of a simple expansion slot block off plate for quite some time. Sure I could have bought a metal one pretty cheap, but I figured why not take some quick measurements, add this to an order, and have some printed.

It is such a simple design that I set the model to allow free downloads and the file is available through my shop "commission free" so the price you see is what Shapeways charges to print. Don't know if this will help anyone else out or not.

http://www.shapeways.com/model/932584/computer-expansion-slo t-cover-plates.html?li=productBox-search

Feel free to modify/personalize it to your hearts content. Due to the handling fee for printing I included 4 plates in this design to reduce the cost per plate. You can increase the number of plates if you want to further reduce the price for each one. (the volume for each of the plates is 2 cm3)

I ordered mine in alumide to give it a more metal look. I figured the aluminum material may also help slightly with any electromagnetic interference issues.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Gear and Slide combines gearing and sliding in a single twisty puzzle. Such a combination was suggested by Khaled Habbab. After rejecting a whole bunch of puzzle concepts that are either unstable or no fun to play, this one was selected. The puzzle combines 23 sliding pieces and a void with eight turning corners. All corners turn in the same direction, reusing the gear designs from Polo Gear Cube for the internal gearing mechanism.

Watch the YouTube video.

index.php?t=getfile&id=27671&private=0Attached are some pictures of printed and assembled JEEVI G scale (1:19) designs for Victorian Railways narrow gauge NU ventilated van and NM cattle wagon.

The bodies are attached to the JEEVI VR (PBR) narrow gauge underframe. I have used Cambrian Models Fox bogies (widened for 45mm gauge) with 25mm diameter Sierra Valley wheel sets, RC boys 1/4" x 1/8 " x 7/64" ball bearings and Accucraft AP 11-738 automatic couplers. The coupler mounts required some styrene packing. I used 0.5mm styrene sheet for the NU floor and 6mm x 3mm and 6mm x 2.5mm styrene strip for the NM floor. I have painted the bodies but detailing including running boards, handrails, air lines and lettering remain to be completed.

As I only had Fox bogies painted black at assembly time I used these, but intend to change out the bogies later for some red oxide coloured ones.

Overall the Shapeways prints provide a nice representation of these quaint VR narrow gauge wagons.

Hey guys

Got my last order two days ago and it looks great, for me it was mostly new product and colors so i'm exited..

This is my new groovy blue case for the digispark
index.php?t=getfile&id=27643&private=0

And this is my purple pendant, the inner rings rotate around the center pin, it turns out that the gap between the rings and the pin was not big enough and the printing powder didn't came out before painting so it was "locked" in place, a bit of hot water, a needle and a firm rotation force did the job but left the gaps white, I already redesigned it and uploaded a new STL.

Hope you like them Smile

I haven't been so exited for years since I discovered designing in 3D and be able to print it. Since May 2012 I've been learning designing in ViaCad and made my first model train. A model I had on my wish list for years, but which no model train company had made with all interior details. I made it the main feature of my website at http://svencentral.com and am already working on the appropriate coaches.. The etched plates I made for it as well. The scale is 1:87, so incredible small, yet still a working model.

Amazing, this technology. Makes you wonder why the rest of the world isn't doing it! Wink

Hi Shapeways fans,

Vladimir's Cheese is a design that was requested by Vladimir Yaroslavskiy. He wanted a "deep cut" version of The Heptagon. This was achieved by shape-modding a 3-layer 14-section Cheese Block.

Another successful design by JEEVI. I received my test prints yesterday for the Victorian Railways narrow gauge NM cattle van in 16mm scale (1:19).
These are big models ( 400 x 100 x 120) and the printing is excellent. I thought this would be really tough for Shapeways to print but it went off without a hitch.

This model is an excellent companion to the VR NU van also designed by JEEVI and is designed to fit JEEVI's 25 'underframe.

Well done JEEVI and Shapeways!

Hopefully there is more to come in the way of NQ, NH, NT and NBB wagons

This is the Sierpinski tetrahedron made with 204 hearts. I made it last year for Valentine's day, the wedding contest reminded me to make it public.
It was inspired by the brilliant xkcd webcomic: http://xkcd.com/543/

The print in dyed WSF turned out really well. More details:

Hi Shapeways fans,

Polo Shift is yet another brilliant idea by Alex Polonsky. Seven of the corners of a cube are shifted around the spherical core. While shifting, the corner pieces change orientation, which makes this puzzle confusing to solve.

Watch the YouTube video.

Enjoy!

I received my 16mm scale (1:19) Puffing Billy underframes by GVROCKSNOW today. These are the Version 2 with the 1mm section thickness. They are 400 mm long and 100mm wide and they are superb! All the detail printed beautifully. The truss rods and piping are delicate, but that said they are close to scale thickness which I like. The actual frame is very strong due to the interconnected channel construction, despite the minimum section thickness and light weight. They were well packed by Shapeways (a huge box with gallons of foam) and all arrived in as printed condition.

All eight are excellent reproductions. There is no way any other cottage production method short of styrene injection moulding could achieve this level of detail and the C channels could be tricky even for this. I was going to polyurethane cast from a master I made (without the C channels), but my efforts can't match these models.

Accucraft AP11-738 knuckle couplers fit the frame openings for the couplers well and the Cambrian models Fox bogies also work well with them.

They are expensive though. It would be great if the cost per underframe could be brought under the $100 mark.

More Shapeways VR narrow gauge wagon bodies to fit these underframes in 16mm scale would be great of course. Otherwise I shall have to start building bodies for them for which they will provide an incredibly detailed platform.

A large package arrived safely in Australia via Holland.
AOK.
Nice 3D prints of the Oz Bushmaster ans ASLAV - very well done in HO and N Scale..

Very well packed.
Previous difficultie in overpacking and compression of fragile models appears to have been overcome.
Good use of air filled bubble wrap and thick wads of Poly fibre are very effectve.
However, there still exists the tendancy to stuff small items in zip lock bags barely large enough for some items.
I realise that the zip lock bags are used to keep all the bits together but pushing the model into too small a bag makes removing the item difficult and breaks things off.

Keep on improving!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Cubic Hourglasses is a concept by Bram Cohen. The puzzle has four hourglass-shaped pieces, and a three-quarter-circle piece. The object is to get the latter piece from the top to the bottom. The pieces do not only slide like in a sliding block puzzle. They also turn, pivot and skew.

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

I was thinking of phones and tablets while chewing on a Lego figure as you do. This led me to creating hands for Lego figures that can hold stuff properly. Not only phone and tablets but books, newspapers and cards that you can print yourself.

There are two designs both have the opening turning in. One design is the same dimensions as the existing hands but turned and the other has closed hands with a 0.25mm gap. Because they are printed in white and black flexible you can put anything in with a thickness of 0.25 to 1.50mm as you can see in the picture with the penny.

I'm not sure how many I should put on a sprue so please let me know how many you would like and I'll see what I can do?

They can be ordered here

Hi everyone!

This is my first print which I made as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. The text you see in the candle holder is a pattern of my and my girlfriends nicknames for each other, it says "gom<3gobb".

I just wanted to show you a great way to create a really fun gift for your loved ones, the possibilities are endless and all you have to think about is to have a hole above the light! Smile

Here's a post about this project on my site if you would like to read more about it: http://trixigt.com/first-3d-printed-model-from-model-to-prin t/

I'm pretty new to 3D printing. I'm quite happy with how this print turned out.

Thought I'd share some pics here. Any feedback is welcome!

Hi,

here is a test print in FD of a pendant based on the heraldic symbol of Luxembourg, Roude Leiw Detailed pendant circle frame.

I hope to print it in silver when I have sorted out some minor details.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Cheese Block is a 14-segment version of the 3-layer 6-segment Cheese Cake puzzle and the 10-segment Prisminx Crystal by Gregoire Pfennig. The mechanism is a straightforward 3-shells mechanism, as explained by Jared McComb at the Twisty Puzzles Forum, augmented by top- and bottom-layer sliders.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi there,

This is not a new model at all, but this is the first time I order it.

Here are 5 Repulsive Force Polyhedra.
http://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_301426_720032_1356118007.jpg
These polyhedra are constructed by putting a certain number of points on a sphere allowing them to move along its surface so that by repulsing each other they reach a balanced position. Then I replaced each point by a plane (that is: I took the dual polyhedron) to obtain those polyhedra.

Check this page or this page (by Alea Kybos) to generate them.
This is the basis for most of my Truncated Sphere Dice.

Here I used 8, 9, 10, 17, and 32 points and the result is the basis for Alt D8, 4-fold D10, D9, D17 and D32.

I am very happy to finally have them in my hands. Don't miss the video.

It's so nice to see that it arrived without any problems in printing process.
I'm very happy to see that the model has nice details. I can see the swords and also the numbers. Smile

Hi there,

3 sets of dice arrrived.
The Odd Spherical Dice set (contains all the spherical dice with an odd number of faces from 9 to 19.):
http://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_663079_719520_1356098894.jpg
The DCC Expansion pack (contains 6 dice: D3, D5, D7, D14, D16 and D24)
http://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_650912_719518_1356098820.jpg

I also received the regular Sphere Dice set but I have no new picturew currently.

If you combine all three dice sets, you got:
- D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, D11, D12, D13, D14, D15, D16, D17, D19 and D20 plus the D24.

You can get even more by adding:
- D18
- D22
- D32
- D33

You still got 15% off on the entire shop until the end of the year.
