Hi Shapeways fans,

Tanacube Too is a put-together cube puzzle with tangram-shaped faces. It was Oskar's answer of a challenge by George Miller and Peter Rasmussen. Size: 60x60x60 mm, same as a Rubik's Cube.

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

Enjoy!

My first design and first order arrived this week. It is intended as a specialized birthday present packaging, to contain a gift certificate for a friend who is keen on visiting the Australian Opens. Therefore it has the shape of a tennis ball. It is also a little puzzle as it does not fall apart when trying to lift the top half of the ball. But if you turn it around (after all, he wants to travel to "down under") the then bottom (i.e. original top) half falls off easily, thus releasing the packaged gift certificate.
The trick is done by a little cylinder interlocked with the bottom part, which can move like a screw up and down a bit by its own weight, thus opening or closing a "lock" for the other part.

The print is extremely accurate. It seems there is one line on one of the shells where it suffers from a very tiny displacement (visible under extreme shallow light), but otherwise it looks just as on screen Smile
There are a few problems "by design" (i.e by me):
1) In its "rest" state the top half falls down too far; apparently I forgot to add something stopping that. So it looks like the ball has lost "air". I hope I can make it look better by suitably folding the gift certificate.
2) One has to shake the thing a bit in order for the lock to unlock; this is obviously due to the (expected) friction and I'm not yet sure whether to count it as a bug or feature Wink
3) I wish there were less tolerance. The parts can move somewhat freely about because of the required 0.7 mm gaps between parts. I submitted the seperable half separate so that a few gaps could be cut down to 0mm, but I wish the moving cylinder could be tighter. Sad

The material shows its remarkable properties: It is white, it is strong and it is flexible.
The strongness is so impressive that I apparently could have been much more courageous when hollowing out the central axis parts.
The flexibility (esp. of the three "antennae" get inserted into the "lock") is so impressive that I should have used a different approach (thus solving the gap/tolerance problem) by producing three separate parts and using a one-time "click" mechanism to interlock the two parts to be interlocked.
The whiteness is also impressive, but this thing really sucks in dirt. I better keep it in its delivery bag until its time has come.

Admittedly, the price of such a print is somewhat high if it is in fact just the equivalent of a one-time gift-wrap - but it was fun making it Smile

The pictures are not very good - I tried to improve detail by underexposing, but tehy are also badly focused (also due to bad lighting).

I received two copies of my Moiré Sphere model today from Shapeways, one in WSF and one in Indigo Strong and Flexible. It is one sphere nested within another. The inner sphere is weighted and rotates freely as the outer sphere is tilted. The interaction between the two creates some interesting interference patterns.

This actually cost less to print with Shapeways than if I had it done at the pet store. I think it's much nicer than the flat aluminum ones from the pet store machine too. This came out better than I was expecting but it is thin in a few spots. Perhaps too thin for dog use, time will tell. Some day I would like to get this one in stainless.
thanks for looking
feedback is always welcome

I'm very pleased with my Raspberry Pi case. The top part arrived and it fit very nicely with the bottom part. There's virtually no play when the two halves are snapped together. It holds together very well and it's not too difficult to take them apart.

Already I see several things I'd like to change. Without having a raspberry pi board yet, i'm not sure of some of the dimensions. I think the USB ports hole is way too tall. Also some of the text and icons I'd like to make a bit bigger. Overall, I can see the icons ok and they are raised about the right height and I was very pleased about that.

The top and bottom both are not flimsy at all. I was really very pleasantly surprised about that. The walls are 1mm thick but I added some strength lines on the back side and that seems to have made it not be flimsy at all.

Here's a video of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrLEiujfQh8

Today Shapeways send me an email that my print don't look very well. Just as I feared walls was too thin, and stairs fall off.

I have canceled this order and have to re-design. I'm thinking about increasing wall thickness from 0.3mm to 0.5-1.0mm, also floor thicknes from 1.0mm to 1.5-2.0mm and making walls and roof one part. Also I will remove stairs (it will be easy to make with wire and plastic sheet).index.php?t=getfile&id=13508&private=0

Hey fellas!

I forgot to post these up when they arrived, a ring and a pendant with winged-skull theme, inspired by Warhammer 40K.

Both are printed in unpolished StainlessSteel material, and are slightly polished by me. Also I got a bit carried away and painted the ring with some gold enamel model paint Very Happy It rubbs off though.
The ring is huge, my desing error, so it falls off of even my stubby fingers, but it can be resized easily as well. You may find them on page 3 in my shop Here !

Hi Shapeways fans,

Cube Twister are eight Rubik's Cubes connected by rods. However, as the eight corners of each cube are solidly connected, each row or column of cubes tumbles are a whole. The motion of this puzzle was first suggested by Nouri Khalifa around 2009. Nouri's prototype was based on eight cubes with holes, and a stick to turn pairs of cubes. In 2010, Sigurd suggested a similar type of motion in a post at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. It was Mike Armbrust who first proposed a proper Rubik's style mechanism for this concept.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Jumble Prism is the second jumbling puzzle ever brought into existence (first was Helicopter Cube / Bevel Cube), and the first jumbling puzzle with non-platonic geometry. The puzzle can be considered the "godfather of all jumbling puzzles", as it has the most basic regular geometry for a twisty puzzle where all moves are jumbling moves.

Bram Cohen invented this puzzle. He told Oskar about it at the beach of Surfer Paradise in Australia at the occasion of the International Puzzle Party, August 2007. Several more and less successful prototypes have been made in a collaboration between Bram and Oskar, prototyped by George Miller. Finally, this is a well-working prototype, turning and jumbling the way Bram originally envisioned it.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi,
yesterday I've received the complete set of the BUTTERFLY Collection, ring earrings and necklace.

I was waiting especially for the necklace because I was not sure about the 3d printed chain and the closure, but everything is fine and the chain works perfectly, so I can use it for other objects!

As soon as on the shop!

Thank you very much again SHAPEWAYS for your precious job!! Smile

Hi guys,

Here are 2 pictures of a customer who has finished this 1:160 scale train.
It's a train which used to drive from The Netherlands to Belgium.

He only used the head of the train, the rest was an already build model (by minitrix)

Thanks to everybody's support in the Sad Keanu figuirine.

I got feedback that the price was too high. I'm not rolling in dough either so I can sympathize. Well, fear no more! A littler Sad Keanu and much littler the price!

A few moments of hand painting added the purple ring and the black in the nooks.

All the detail came out in this material. My favorite ring and material by far. I would recommenced silver to anyone making jewelry here, definitely worth the price increase.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Holistic Ring was designed by Bram Cohen. He decided to come up with a design which has a nice holistic finishing move. As all rings part together simultaneously when mixing up this puzzle ring, it is quite hard to get it back together again, as you have to reverse the holistic move.

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!

I actually got this a few months back but I've been too busy using it to post anything Smile

One of my other hobbies is woodturning and I wanted to design and make an accessory called a fruit chuck to go on my lathe to help turn wooden apples. The pictures can explain much better than me:

Apple finished except for the bottom part:

index.php?t=getfile&id=13024&private=0

Fruit chuck in lathe, the hole for the screw was done deliberately undersized then drilled out to fit the screw exactly

index.php?t=getfile&id=13025&private=0

Apple parted off and reverse mounted so that I can finish the bottom

index.php?t=getfile&id=13026&private=0

Some points:
1. With just the fruit chuck in the lathe ( like image 2 ) it was perfectly balanced and I could run the lathe at 3000 rpm with no vibration. This is much faster than I use it for working the apple.
2. I was a bit concerned that the WS&F material would be a bit rough and mark the work but it sands very well and 20 seconds with 240 grit sandpaper got the inside of the cone very smooth

Overall it works very well and much better than the wooden version that I was using up to now Smile The model was drawn in Autodesk Inventor by my son who's a mechanical engineering student

Shop page with more detail of the model is here

Regards
John

I had previously only printed out the larger crayon sized holder, but I just got a pencil holder for xmas. It looks great. It is signficantly smaller and lighter, but I like the look with my colored pencils.

My second order. Here's a summary of the stuff:

index.php?t=getfile&id=12955&private=0

————

These are a part of a bigger project, but I ordered just the face to test FD. The other one is WSF. FD didn't blow me away, probably because the translucency makes the surface details harder to see... Both are ~2.5 cm (1 inch) high. This is not yet for sale, unless someone for some reason wants it.

index.php?t=getfile&id=12958&private=0

index.php?t=getfile&id=12957&private=0

————

Glenda is the mascot character of the Plan 9 operating system. I don't even use it, but a) the idea of 'unix done right' and b) Glenda herself as a character appeal to me, so...

1 mm shell of WSF is surprisingly sturdy. This (as are the others) is modeled in Blender, which nowadays has the shapewayswise hugely convenient solidify modifier (known as shell in Max, if I recall). Try it if you haven't. (shop)

index.php?t=getfile&id=12959&private=0

————

My first order consisted of nothing but Hilbert cubes, so here's one in this too. Unlike the other ones, this is 'pure', an open ended curve (as opposed to a loop). (shop)

index.php?t=getfile&id=12960&private=0

I also got some earrings, but I'll post them after I get access to a suitable ear to model them with... The order also contained a ceramics item, but it hasn't arrived yet because they are reprinting it. (Yay for customer service, they actually sent me a picture of the deficient print and asked what to do Smile .)

Hi everyone, i have finally received my product from shapeways, and it is absolutely amazing! I have tried other services before (imaterilse) but frankly shapeways, production QUALITY is much better.

Here's a Iphone case i made, inspired by traditional Maori Art

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y288/xxdaggerxx/P1020076.jpg

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y288/xxdaggerxx/P1020074.jpg

This one is in WSF polished. I realized the unpolished version preserves the details better.

it fits securely onto the iphone, and comes of convienetly too.
Here are some product renders:

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y288/xxdaggerxx/Render1.png

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y288/xxdaggerxx/Render2.png

The case can be purchased at my shop here:
http://www.shapeways.com/model/417993/iphone_4_4s___traditio nal_maori_design.html?gid=sg104934

*The one in my shop doesn't have my name on it "Aaron".

I really hope shapeways will introduce colored polished WSF soon!! I will be setting up a shop soon with many more designs. I hope to use the different colors that WSF comes in.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Candy Wrapper is a six-piece burr with spiral parts. The six pieces intersect each other at two placed at a 90-degrees angle. Because of the looks of the puzzle, George Miller coined it "Candy Wrapper". The seventh part is a little ball, which is the candy that is hidden in the wrapper.

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

Enjoy!

Meeples with heart by fasaxc, on Flickr

The set of 8 purple Carcassonne playing pieces "meeples" with love hearts I ordered for my girlfriend just arrived. She's thrilled with them and I'm very pleased at how they turned out.

The 3D model is open-source on Thingiverse. And I've made them available on Shapeways (for free).
