The star of bethlehem image didn't show up very well in metal, but in white it did.

I'll have some pictures soon. But I have to wait until I have some good sunlight. My mom was the model, but we were in darkness this morning.

So I took some pictures of myself again. She's upset, but she loves the Thimbles. It was just a darker day than usual.

I wish I could show the detail. my cameras aren't charged >today. and my phone didnt take good pictures in dark. so I used webcam on myself and Thimble at noon. Thimble fits mom too.index.php?t=getfile&id=11770&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=11769&private=0

I designed this wine stopper as a gift for a friend of mine who got married. It was done in white strong and flexible polished and it looks and feets amazing.

Now I see what the huf'n puff about polished wsf is all about:

Hi Shapeways fans,

Krystian's Pyramid is a shape-mod of Krystian's Twist by Krystian Wilisowski. By turning this crazy jumbling puzzle into a pyramid, the shape is easier to understand. Moreover, one can see the orientation of the four corners, which gives a (false?) sense of direction. Krystian's Pyramid looks like it belongs on the top of a christmas tree. This twisty puzzle turns around three axes. Apart from doctrinaire moves, it also has a fascinating seven-move jumbling sequence.

Following on from the 24-Cell, this is two interlinked half 24-cells (it's two linked parts that can move relative to each other). It's a bit hard to see what's going on from the photos, so it might be worth looking at the video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Six-to-Three is a six-banded puzzle ring designed by Bram Cohen.

On Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 2:39 PM, Bram wrote to Oskar:
"Hey Oskar, I came up with the attached puzzle ring design the other day. This one is also taking things in a different direction, in that it's six bands where each one is linked to the three which it isn't next to, and everything comes apart easily, sort of the opposite of the other new one I sent you where each band is connected specifically to the ones next to it and it only comes apart via a holistic move. I'm not sure how this one discombobulates, and have no idea how hard it might be."

As we learned from the prototype, the answer is "very hard".

They're dice. They're companion cubes. The one is a heart. what more could you want?

I always wanted to do SOMETHING Portal-related. I wasn't really sure what but I knew it had to be lovable. This, of course, led to the terrifying realization that everything creative I've done recently could very easily classified as "cute". But I digress.

Each die is 2cm x 2cm x 2cm, printed in WSF. I may print some full-color ones at some point, or perhaps just paint them

I hope you enjoy!

Hi Shapeways fans,

Sliding 3x3x3 is a Rubik's Cube combined with a sliding piece puzzle. Its design is based on the "Cube puzzle with moving faces" by Ravi Kuchimanchi and Madhukar Thakur.

This mechanism was also used for the Get Stuck Cube. Vladimir Yaroslavskiy commissioned this version.

Hey All,

I've been developing a series of vehicle upgrades for GI Joe/Action Force vehicles and as such my latest parts have arrived. This part is the first in a series to upgrade the Cobra with an armored canopy and upgraded turret. The first prototype which arrive today, is the canopy which fits pretty well but doesn't quite close. That being said, I should have this issue resolved with version 2.0

Cheers!

After weeks of waiting my model arrived! I made the test model in WSF and it turned out better than I had hoped. The resolution was a bit rough, but that was to be expected. Some parts were missing holes I had inscribed, but that was easily remedied with a dremel tool. For the satelites, the arms fell off in creation because the WSF was too thin (wire) which I need to correct for the final version. The stand I made for it in SW also was a bit of a bust. The transparent plastic ended up being bendy and could not support the weight of the whole ship.

http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/1964/dsc00956r.jpg

So the satellites come off and should be posable just like the video game, they also lock back into the ship. The locking mechanism is too small, so I have to make it more robust for the next printing. I'm thinking UFD next time, with a better designed locking system.

I'd give you a better preview, but the standard image algorithms of the 70s 80s and 90s the internet is based on are practical, not perfect.

My cousin's wedding was in April. Thus, this is a rather belated gift (but I let them know that I wanted to make them something and it would be rather belated, so I think that means it's ok...) It is intended to be a commemorative Christmas ornament, and I think it came out fantastic. I may need to make this into a Co-Creator, since the new texture-based system for putting text on things works like a charm (Thanks, electrobloom! - http://www.shapeways.com/shops/electrobloom) Who knows - maybe a co-creator of this will be my first sale! (yeah, I'm a software engineer, not a marketer - it's an area for improvement)

Finaly a model I ordered at Shapeways came out great... but unfortunately I just saw that it is not longer available to the public. Too sad, I would have liked to order a couple to give to friends.

I'm talking about the little "Gun Fighter" which is in fact the GunStar from "Last Starfighter". I ordered it in "White strong and flexible, polished":

Meant to post this a while ago... this is my first purchase in Silver. Very happy with it and I love not seeing the evidence of 3D printing that can be seen on some materials (i.e. stair-stepping).

My only quibble with Silver is the price; with a minimum $40 price and then another $15 UPS charges at the door my minimum cost is now $55. When trying to re-sell items this REALLY puts a dent in the profits. However, I understand the amount of work that goes into silver pieces so can't complain too much.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Bubbles-in-a-plane was inspired by ideas from Anthony Villaveiran and Carl Hoff, posted at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. Unlike a convention Engel's Enigma, the rotating parts do not have sixfold symmetry and they are unequally spaced. The result is a quite confusing puzzle that jumbles (bubbles?) and is fudged. The name of the puzzle hints to Antony's nickname "Boublez".

The Couplers are fantastic!

I saw the negative gear space and thought "drat, it's too small" however I was WRONG!

It will only go on one way, and it must be STRAIGHT. , no real slop once fit and slid on.

The nut side fits the ACME 1/4" 20 Nut perfectly, no real slop once bottomed.

I may get these in Stainless...

The pliers jaw tests were cool... Not great, but cool.

These were printed just to bring the total to $25 and see a few samples.

One hole on one spreader was not there!
(No reprint needed, it printed about 5% of the depth on one side, so I will drill it)

The surface was a bit rougher that expected but it was Grey Robust. (Which files nicely I might add)

The errors in MY design were clear. Glad it was a $2.00 3D print... Sweet!


VERY happy and working on my next order.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Zygmunt's Cube is based on an idea by Zygmunt Kurczewski. Zygmunt suggested a 2x2x2 cube with an additional 12 edge pairs, each of which could rotate by 180 degrees. Oskar modified Zygmunt's idea to make it look like a 4x4x4 cube, using the same cutting trick that he used for Oh Cube. Experts may recognize that this puzzle could be considered a bandaged version of Mike Armbrust's Rubik's 4x4x4 with a partial twist, which you can buy at Mike's Shapeways Shop.

The 120-cell is the 4 dimensional analogue of the dodecahedron. Just as the dodecahedron has 2-dimensional faces (12 pentagons), the 120-cell has 3-dimensional faces (120 dodecahedra).

This is a model of what you get when you take the 120-cell drawn on the unit sphere in 4-dimensional space, throw half of the sphere away then stereographically project the remainder into our 3-dimensional space.

To get the whole 120-cell back, take two copies of this, and glue them together along their boundaries. You can see lots of half dodecahedra on the boundary of the model which form whole dodecahedra together with their mirror image in the other half.

Did some material comparisons

I wanted to print some items that were simple, with corners, a rod, ring and needed some tight tolerances....so printed that symbol thing from harry potter. Razz

Dimensions in inches
Square shaft in middle is .1. The rod is about .043. rod to circle clearance is about .005. Clearance from circle to top column is .005, same for bottom of circle. Triangle width is .1. radius around each corner about .09. top hole diameter .03. Thickness is .0625. if you would like a dimension that I did not list just let me know.

White detail came out nice, flexible, rounded corners. Fuzzy. Not good for higher tolerance object. The circle in the middle did not move at all, so I forced the spin and it broke. As you can see when printed the rod circle and adjacent melded together.

Transparent detail. Better than the White detail as in edges, kinda the same with the melding together.

The best one was the Frosted Ultra Detail. Came out great. Spins with no problem, strong with flex and nice clean cut edges. Would still need to be cleaned up from some of the fuzz.

These came in a previous order and did not make the video, but I did take pictures.
Also did one in black strong and flexible was the same as the Frosted Ultra Detail, just more of a hard rubber feel, like a slice of tire
I Also did one in the black detail that is the same as the white detail

Did another tank also is white strong and flexible polished. Bottom was a little wavy, but fine for what it is. I did have the cylinder hollowed out but for some reason it was not when I received. I took a paper clip to it and material in powder form came out like a was pouring out a pixy stick. 

Video of items above. And yes my nose was whistling (0 0). Dont need sound to watch

Hi Shapeways fans,

Krystian's Twist is an idea by Krystian Wilisowski, which he posted at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. Krystian worked out how to turn a tridiminished icosahedron into a jumbling twisty puzzle. Actually, his version was more complex with four slices. Carl Hoff suggested that even the jumbling three-slice puzzle could be interesting. This is that three-slice version.

The puzzle has an interesting seven-move jumbling sequence, which cannot be reversed without jumbling. It took me several video attempts to demonstrate it correctly, because the sequence is sort-of hard to remember, see and replicate.

The geometry of this puzzle is a deep-cut edge-turning icosahedron, of which only three of its 15 axes are enabled. It is a little brother of Big Chop, so to say.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Dino Pent is a corner-turning and top-face-turning pentagonal prism. The inspiration for this puzzle came from an idea by Tianyu Lu.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Chilen Cube was suggested by Chilen Chen on the Twisty Puzzles Forum. It can be considered a deep-cut Pentagonal Prism. Grégoire Pfennig used this mechanism as the core of his Prisminx Crystal.

This pinwheel design can be worn as a pendant or clipped on to clothing as a stylish decorative element.

The design also spins on a central pin.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Hexed Mixup was inspired by the 7-Color Magic Puzzle (aka: Massage Ball) by Otto Wu. I saw this puzzle when I visited Claus Wenicker. The completion of the design was triggered by the HexaMixUp idea by Krystian Wilisowski. The puzzle has three types of moves: rotation of a side, rotation of the top half and rotation of a central slice. Ever though this puzzle does not jumble and it is not fudged either, solving it is rather complex due to the reorientation of the (partially unbandaged) hexagons.

Watch the YouTube video.

Two packages came today- one with stainless steel, and one with WSF!
http://i843.photobucket.com/albums/zz353/SteveLikesCubes/Shapeways/DSCF6128.jpg

First- the Treble Clef Ring in stainless steel
The height and size are both customizable, and a bass clef is also available.

http://i843.photobucket.com/albums/zz353/SteveLikesCubes/Shapeways/DSCF6135.jpg

This was the fourth version:
The first was a test to see how the treble clef fit on the staff
The second was the final version of that, but I didn't like how the clef looked.
The third was when I discovered inkscape and made the clef much nicer
The fourth was in stainless steel!
http://i843.photobucket.com/albums/zz353/SteveLikesCubes/Shapeways/DSCF6155.jpg

I also got a better version of my 3x3x3 assembly puzzle. It was a popular model until I took it down for some modifications, so hopefully it gets back up there!

http://i843.photobucket.com/albums/zz353/SteveLikesCubes/Shapeways/DSCF6161.jpg

I tried a stainless steel version, but unfortunately it didn't work. It does look rather cool when combined with the other, though!

I also received a copy of Bowie the Bunny and took a few quick shots- I'll be going out for a photo shoot on the weekend!

I just completed work on a new project, my Companion Rubik's Cube. Based on an idea I saw on YouTube, I devised a full skin covering that encases the old puzzle in my beloved Companion Cube's visage. I even cooked up a painting scheme to make it a functional puzzle, although I don't dare scramble the sides. I'm not very good at Rubik's Cubes. LOL

http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6138/5993200122_55567e2a08_b.jpg

I've got it up as a full blown kit for others to play with. Since it's not quite Rubik's, and not quite a Companion Cube, I think I'll be safe.

I even made a little video of the assembly and it's function:

Hi Shapeways fans,

PentaJumble is based on a geometry that was suggested by Bram Cohen. The puzzle has four pentagonal faces that can be rotated. The puzzle jumbles, which causes some strange bandaging. The puzzle has all kinds of weird geometric properties, some of which even Bram may not have anticipated. For starters, all edges can be interchanged. Moreover, there are many different ways to assemble the puzzle, such that it has the same outer shape, but different different positions of the little wedge-triangles.

Watch the YouTube video.

Hey everyone,

I'd like to announce that my Twisted Cubes are now available on my Shapeways Shop!

Type 1 ($90) looks like a 3x3 on top.
Type 2 ($90) looks like a Fisher Cube on top.

You can save $10 by buying them together! (Discount only applies if you order the model entitled "Twisted Cubes - Both", not if you order "Type 1" and "Type 2")

To order, buy it from my Shapeways shop, and then be sure to send an email to eitanspuzzleshop @ gmail . com (remove the spaces) with your order number and which type you ordered, since I have to intervene and send them the correct files.

You can get stickers through Dr. Sticker (a really good source for custom puzzle stickers) for $6.70 for one puzzle, and $4.00 for every additional puzzle. Just email him at dr-sticker @ gmail . com (remove the spaces, but not the "-" dash) and tell him what colors you want on which faces. Be sure to tell him which type of Twisted Cube you bought, so he can send you the right stickers!

Each puzzle needs 6 M3 screws at least 10mm long.

Here is a video and some pictures.

The ring is a replica of the artist's Ivan Reis design that appeared in Green Lantern: "Blackest Night".
I loved the design (better than just a circle with two attached lines this was a 3D carving of the logo really
resembling the lantern). I made 10 of these and gave them out at Comic-Con and kept one.

The Ossuary set of dice piles together skulls with large flat numerals (or pips in the case of the four sided die).

There are fifty skulls here for you to play with. They're intended to add a hint of the mortuary madness of the Paris Catacombs to your die rolling, while remaining pleasant to handle, shake, rattle and roll.
