After a few issues with printing my Celtic inspired Heart ring arrived today!

It is a Cuff style ring which was an attempt at making it able to be bent slightly for different sized fingers. I have another version made that is an enclosed ring with six hearts i will be test printing soon to see it it eliminates some warping that occurs in polishing.

My second attempt at printing. I learned from my mistakes with the first batch and made the wings thicker this time so they wouldn't get bent in transit. However they were still slightly bent. So I soaked the models in hot water to soften them and managed to straighten out the wings myself.

The planes are 9cm long, printed with white high-detail. They're painted with citadel acrylics.

I have a 16-month-old son, and I FaceTime with him during lunch each day. I got tired of trying to prop my phone up on books, so I made a stand for it. I was inspired by the geometry of molecules when designing the stand.

I haven't ordered from Shapeways in about 6 months, and it was really satisfying to receive something again!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Variomatic Cube is a twisty puzzle with gears. All three pairs of opposing faces are connected by gears. And they are not just some gears, they are gears with a varying gear ratio. Some sometimes, opposing gears will turn with a 1:1 gearing ratio, some with a 1:2 ratio, and sometimes with a 2:1 ratio. The operation of the variable-ratio gears is explained and illustrated here and here. Watch a demo of the inner gearing mechanism here.

The name of this puzzle is a tribute to the variomatic transmission system by the Dutch car manufacturer DAF. Note that the variable-gear-ratio mechanism is very different from the DAF variometic system.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Variomatic Cube Demo is the third of three experiments with non-circular gears. This puzzling mechanism is a demo model to show how the Variomatic Cube works. The mechanism has four identical gears meshing with each other. The gearing ratio of the gear train varies from 1:1 to 1:2 and 2:1.

I wanted to create a fun charm to be used with my Phiten necklace and decided a bow tie fit. This was my first attempt and I am very happy with the outcome.

The clips work perfect and I am happy with the way in which the charm orients with the Phiten clips.

The texture of the material (black strong and flexible) almost gives it a velvet feel like a real bow tie.

Hope to make different sizes and attachments soon.

Hi Shapies,

After playing around with the (Cage Edit Tool in Rhino), I was able to morph the straignt lines to create some ripples. What started as a simple opening, resulted in the 3D optical illusion. This feature is the only modified aspect of this phone case, while the rest of the architecture remains the same as the one of my earlier cases. Such designs offers a perfect fit for your phone, which I have tested for several months.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Double Variomatic is the second of three experiments with non-circular gears. It has two pairs identical gears with a varying gear ratio. When turning, at first the top square turns 90 degrees together with the bottom square. But then they start to diverge, with one square turning 90 degrees and the other 180 degrees. This local 1:2 gearing ratio is achieved by cascading two 1:sqrt(2) gear sections. Actually, that is not entirely true.The gearing ratio is continuously varying, and the 1:sqrt(2) ratio is only an average. Similarly, overall gearing ratio is 1:1 at average. After one full turn, both squares are back to start.

Hi Non-Twisty Puzzles fans,

Variomatic Gears is the first of three experiments with non-circular gears. It is a set of gears with a varying gear ratio. At first, both gears make a quarter turn, which corresponds to a 1:1 gearing ratio. Then, one gear turns by 90 degrees, while the other turns by 180 degrees, corresponding to 1:2. Next the roles reverse to 180:90, which is 2:1. So this set of gears could be described as having a 1-1-2:1-2-1 gearing ratio. The total adds up to 360:360, so the two gears have a 1:1 gearing ratio at average.

This gearing mechanism was inspired by the Heart-Shaped Gears jewels by Guofeng Guan.

Two rings designed for a client arrived yesterday. It is loosely designed around this (from Wikipedia):
Vajra (Devanagari: वज्र, Chinese: 金剛 jīngāng; Tibetan རྡོ་རྗེ། dorje,[1][2][3] Japanese:kongo 金剛) is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond.[2] As a material device, the vajra is a ritual object, a short metal weapon—originally a kind of fist-iron like Japanese yawara—that has the symbolic nature of a diamond (it can cut any substance but not be cut itself) and that of the thunderbolt (irresistible force).

Hi Shapeways fans,

Looney Gears is a strange eccentric planetary gearing system. Whereas normal planetary gear systems are symmetrical, this one has no symmetry whatsoever.

This particular set of gears was the result of a challenge by Oskar to Andreas Rver in 2006. Andreas found this nice set of all-primary-numbers gears which is about 0.01% exact.

At this moment, it is not known whether there exist exact solutions for this type of eccentric planetary gear systems. Oskar's conjecture is that no exact solution exists. It would make a nice math graduation project to prove the conjecture or find a counter example.

Watch the YouTube video.

P.S. My Californian friend George Miller asked me to make a video in pouring rain. Such situation is much more rare in my country than you would expect. Finally, the right conditions were there: pouring rain and a water-proof puzzling object ready for demonstration.

This is my first attempt with ceramics. I played a bit fast and loose with the design rules, and that didn't work out so well is some regards (see below), but otherwise it's great!

I took inspiration from the alien ampules as seen in Ridley Scot's Prometheus, and as such I chose matte black ceramic to try and evoke the look of the film.

I imagined what it might look like with the lid opened, revealing what lay within. Unlike the movie artefacts, my ampule has a void inside, making it a small vase.

And it is small, measuring just 10cm tall and 4cm at its widest. Some of the walls are <4mm thick. I half expected customer service to call saying it was unprintable!

What didn't turn out? Well I guess I should have known, but the alien inscription down one side is hardly legible. I'll remove that before putting it up for sale.

Here are some pics:

This is my first work in ceramics: "AEROcup". It 'a coffee cup designed thinking of the aviation world. The three feet and the handle are designed as an "airfoil".
I also thought of a plate for two "AEROcups" designed and inspired to a wing section.
Finally I have realized a short video presentation. I hope you enjoy it.

I've been wanting to order a printed puzzle for a while now, but I could never decide what I wanted. I wanted something that was a) good looking, and b) affordable. I'm quite easy to please really.

I recently came across a lovely looking puzzle called the Pentacle Puzzle by David Pitcher of Pitcher Puzzles that met both of those requirements, so I ordered it!

It is a lovely piece of puzzle engineering, and I just can't get over how nice the full-colour sandstone pieces look! I think they give a far nicer look than the standard vinyl stickers.

All-in-all I'm very happy with having this in my collection. And I'm sure many more printed puzzles will follow on from this one. Very Happy

My Companion Cube Puzzle Box is now for sale! I had to tweak it a lot to make it work properly, to be able to sell it. As a surprise, I added a CAKE inside. But it is a lie, the cake is actually another box that opens up to reveal a mini cube on the inside.

Yeah, it's expensive because they charge by volume, I did everything possible to hollow out pieces, trim thick walls, make it as light as possible, but it is a lot of material so the price couldn't be reduced more than that.

Toroidal Half 120-Cell is a variant on another 3D print showing a 4-dimensional polytope, Half of a 120-Cell. In both cases, printing the whole object would be very expensive, and I think it would just barely fit inside one of Shapeways' machines. So, we cut it in half. For this one, I cut it along a torus rather than a sphere.

Here's the YouTube Video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Proportional Mixup was suggested by Alex Polonsky. The puzzle is a shape-mod of the Mixup Cube. By having rhombicuboctahedron-shaped cubies, the cubies can be proportional like in a regular Rubik's Cube. However, this puzzle also has 45 degrees slice moves, resulting in some weird shapeshifting.

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

Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

The Stranzer is the ultimate in anti-'Con technology. An entire armory in one weapon, the Stranzer is suited for combat at any distance. You can fight up close, hacking and slashing through 'Cons. You can blast them at mid-range with the Stranzer's built-in blaster, and enemies far away get a nasty surprise when a knife flies right into their optic sensors.

Stranzer Weapon Kit on Shapeways



This weapon kit consists of:
-- 1x Stranzer Blaster
-- 2x Stranzer Scimitars (Left/Right)
-- 1x Stranzer Combat Knife

http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz31/Treadshot_A1/TFP%20Cliffjumper%20Stranzer%20Weapon%20Kit/RobotBlasters1.jpg



The Stranzer Weapons are all designed to be used with one another, and can be combined with each other. When all the Stranzer weapons are combined, the result is the Stranzer Bow:

http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz31/Treadshot_A1/TFP%20Cliffjumper%20Stranzer%20Weapon%20Kit/RobotBow4.jpg

The Stranzer Weapons are all able to store on Cliffjumper. While the Combat Knife is designed to be stowed on his left leg in robot mode, the entire Stranzer Bow can be attached to his back as well:

http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz31/Treadshot_A1/TFP%20Cliffjumper%20Stranzer%20Weapon%20Kit/RobotStorage1.jpg

The Stranzer weapon kit is designed to work with the Transformer Prime (RID) Cliffjumper action figure. The weapon can also be used by any other figure with access to 5mm hand-holes.

Of course, being made for Cliffjumper, it does also fit on his vehicle mode:

I took a capture of my daughters foot mold using A123 Catch. It turned out so well I just had to turn it into a simple pendant. My wife really likes the final result.

Does HandiCube add any value?[ 4 vote(s) ]
1.Yes, it improves speedcubing, especially one-handed 3 / 75%
2.No, it makes cubing more cumbersome 0 / 0%
3.No, it makes no difference 1 / 25%

Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

It looks like a Rubik's Cube and it turns like a Rubik's Cube, but what is it? Of course, it is a Rubik's Cube. HandiCube was suggested by Jens Renders. The regular Rubik's Cube is impractical to solve one-handed, as the solver would need to block two layers to make a slice move (middle-layer "M-turn"). This problem is solved in HandiCube by building the puzzles from a 2x2x2 cube, and having the edges and centers hang between the corners.

Please fill in the poll to indicate whether you think the HandiCube adds any value to the cubing community.

Watch the YouTube video.

Two custom requested pendants arrived recently. Since one of them has wording on it I'll only post a link to the other one. Both in Glossy Silver.

Hi all,

These are not really recent models, but I ordered them in metal very recently and... they arrived!

Here are the D6 Shell:
index.php?t=getfile&id=17706&private=0
and the D8 Shell:
index.php?t=getfile&id=17707&private=0

Both are based on the same principle of having a truncated spheres with the opposite of a face being an edge. As a consequence, the numbers are not printed on the faces. In this way, I can get rid of the flat faces and keep only the rounded surface of the truncated sphere to give to the dice this shell shape.

So the D6 Shell is not based on a cube, and the D8 Shell is not based on a dodecahedron. These make these dice very unique.

And as a bonus, you can also use them as key rings or pendants...

Polyhedral Sculpture #26 - Pendant
http://shpws.me/8CnM
Shows the duality between Dodecahedron and Icosahedron.

Based upon knowledge I accumulated during the 1980's while exploring hands-on "the extraordinary spatial diversity that emanates from the sublime order and elegant simplicity that is exemplified by the subject of polyhedra." (Quote from the Preface to the wonderful book POLYHEDRA PRIMER by Peter Pearce and Susan Pearce)

3 Ball Cascade Motion and Mills Mess Motion are "multiple exposure" sculptures, similar to Juggling Club Motion. These show the path through time of two juggling patterns, the 3 ball cascade and Mills mess. These designs were suggested by Colin Wright.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Spherigears combines the ideas of the Sphere Gear puzzle (a mechanical maze puzzle by Oskar) and Bramboules. The combination was suggested by Bram Cohen. Spherigears has four spherical gears that each rotate with three degrees of freedom. The cage can be folded open in two ways, such that the spherical gears mesh in pairs, either AB-CD or AD-BC. After scrambling, the object of the puzzle is to get all spheres back to their original orientation.

Unfortunately, the puzzle does not work too well. The cages flexes open and the spherigears are hard to align. For this reason, the puzzle is not for sale.

Watch the YouTube video.
