Hi Shapeways fans,

Hexagonish Block was inspired by ideas from Anthony Villaveiran and Carl Hoff, posted at the Twisty Puzzles Forum. The top of this puzzle can always turn. The sides can only turn when one half-center matches up with another one. The puzzle can be considered a bandaged puzzle. It does not jumbles as it can be fully unbandaged, in theory, into a puzzle with 15-fold symmetry.

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

Enjoy!

I though that the material is less rough and I still have to clean a few corners (already did the most important ones to assemble the cargo "containers"), but I am satisfied with this result.

TWIST is a vase design I did in school, and always wanted to have a finished product of. I am quite pleased with the outcome, and have plans for some more stuff to print in the near future. My wife is buying a little TWIST to give as a wedding present probably in WSF, can't wait to see it!

It turned out very nicely aside from a small chip & crack. I guess in the mad rush to get the ceramics moving again it was damaged, but it's very minor.

EDIT: Here are a few more shots of TWIST in some nice, spring afternoon light with an azalea branch.

Hi all,

Two D10 arrived in Polished White Strong and Flexible.
The D10 Axis:

The D10 Diamond Framed:

/openfile/222678/photos/photo45097.jpg

Actually I also wanted to order the D10 Diamond Round, but I made a mistake and ordered the Framed one twice...

They do not roll as usual dice, since they are elongated: you have to make them roll on their axis.

I must say that the Polished White Strong and Flexible has a really great finish, very smooth. But it is white! I hope we will soon have Polished Dyed Strong and Flexible, and why not, Polished Alumide.

Hi just wanted to share this with the forum.
I got my figure a while back got it painted and works pretty well.
The material is WSF primed it and painted it. Joints on the legs and arms work well. On the next version I have remade the chest area and worked on the head. Looking to make some resin casts, will be selling these figures.


You can also see the work on Facebook become a fan much appreciated. I have 3 more characters that I'm working on as well.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Oh Cube is a twisty puzzle, similar to Rubik's Cube. However, it turns in some strange way, turning around corners and pieces sliding under and over each other.

The name "Oh Cube" refers to the intended response from your friends when they fail to turn this "Rubik's Cube" and then you show them how: "Oh, does it turn that way!"

Watch the YouTube video.

Just received four more of my printed implicit surface models.

The base models were all generated with a single mathematical expression using MeshLab's implicit surface filter. Then I used the uniform mesh resampling filter to add the wall thickness. The implicit surface is just a boundry between the positive and negative solutions to the equation, so there is initially no thickness.

Hi All,

Well my test parts in FUD came in today. I reviewed the parts and did some tests.

The large part which represent the a concrete pillar had some problems on 5 sides with the layer build up.

index.php?t=getfile&id=9336&private=0

The surfaces are not as smooth as expected. Also some errors I guess. Left side is sanded and right side is as delivered.

index.php?t=getfile&id=9335&private=0

Did some sanding with very fine course sanding paper but I lost details on the surfaces (holes with 0.2mm and 0.1mm deep). I guess I need to make the holes a bit bigger and deeper. I included some photos of the surfaces and the fine details tat showed up fine after doing a wash with some oil paint and white spirit. The lines in the part are 0.2 wide and 0.1 mm deep and they came out fine.

index.php?t=getfile&id=9334&private=0

Other parts come out fine as expected.

index.php?t=getfile&id=9337&private=0

index.php?t=getfile&id=9338&private=0

As I am looking for a material to make masters for resin casting molds and FUD does the job for small parts. For bigger parts I am not sure yet. Perhaps somebody can advise me or share his experience with bigger FUD parts and the layer lines visable.

Regards,

Leon

I finally got one of my Long Dice in and thought I'd share it with you. And just as I had hoped it is a great dice to play with; the design is such that it doesn't go bouncing all over the table and off the edge like some die have a tendency to do, but it does bounce sufficiently to produce random faces.

Link to this in my store.

I ordered both of these from the Missing Sock Designs shop, and as my first Shapeways order, Im extremely impressed! Both rings have an amazing amount of detail for their fairly small size, and the colors look perfect for their respectable lantern corps!

I have been notified by Shapeways, that my order for Invase is "not glazable"

At the time of design and publication, not all details of the new material were known to me.

Unfortunately it seems I was too optimistic about the possibilities of this exciting new production method.

My sincere apologies to other buyers of this model. I will do my best to improve.
If your order for Invase was rejected, please contact me with your ordernr and orderline, and I will do my best to make it up.

In the spirit of sharing information : the strand thickness is 3mm and the "holes" slightly under.

And this is the result, that we all (but most of all me) may learn from this experience.

And again my apologies to the unlucky buyers.

index.php?t=getfile&id=9183&private=0

I assume this is only the pre-glaze phase and the slits/holes have already gunked up.
So, back to the drawing board!

Cheers,

Virtox

Hello all.

My first post here but not my first shapeways project. After doing a few stuff and testing lots of materials for prototyping, I just receive a test I've done to check the quality of the FUD and I was blowed away. This thing is just wonderfull, almost no post process as it's pretty damn accurate and super smooth.

So here's the little guy I've print, he's about 10 cm height, all the parts are separate and hollowed. The only little complain is just that there's still some support material in the smaller pieces but it's clearly a technical issue as the parts are small and I guess that the water jet was not able to clean it properly.

It's a small size version of an old Jumbo machinder from the 70's I really liked the design of this guy and I've redo it in 3D and was able to print it.

So just one thing in conclusion, please keep this FUD, it's just what a lot of people have wait for a long time.

Cheers

I ordered Salvo, Vantage & Mayhem (or rather Recoil, Headshot & Fracas!) and they arrived earlier this week. VERY happy with them! They're so cool!!

They took paint very well and look amazing. I washed them before painting them with Games Workshop paints.

The only one I have slight issues with is Salvo. He doesn't hold together too well and I had a hell of a time putting his neck/joint in place. Everything on him pops off too easily, too. Having said that, he looks great with Perceptor!

I highly recommend these figures and will definitely be getting more.

The lion rampant was scanned into Wings3d from royalty-free clipart. The shield design was compiled using OpenSCAD and my own heraldic library of OpenSCAD scripts.

I'm really, really pleased with the way this has turned out and will be using it as the basis for a 'print your own heraldic design' co-creator template.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Squashed Cube looks like a Rubik's Cube after being squeezed together in a vice. The six faces turn sort-of-like a Rubik's Cube, but in a very bandaged - jumbling - way. The middle slices are at an angle of 60 degrees from each other. This way, the hexagons in the center of each face can change position and orientation. This makes this puzzle very hard to solve.

Watch the YouTube video.

This will be a birthday gift for a good friend of mine - I hope she like it Smile I'll probably paint it white, so it keeps the color and add lacquer to make it a little bit shiny.
It's printed in white strong and flexible - not polished, because I ordered it a few days before polished was anounced.

Find it on Shapeways here:

When I saw Shapeways was offering a new FUD material I rushed in a few designs for printing.

This is a Warrtrakk upgrade and conversion kit. It was originally a body+turret but I broke the design down into a kit for FUD. The material is very clear+translucent the colors are off in the photos due to contrast and exposure adjustment.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_WGFXUg9zkL4/TdJahby914I/AAAAAAAAok0/oqZNE2sDHMk/s640/DSC01454.JPG

Fan detail is much sharper than WD, this one piece out of the lot has a really odd wax half melted appearance. Some of the corners are not 100% square they have the very tip clipped clean, not really a problem for me but it's there at the very extreme tips of most pieces.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_WGFXUg9zkL4/TdJacc7_6VI/AAAAAAAAoks/lgmf-4mp45Q/s640/DSC01455.JPG

Unfortunately there was some major warping on the main body panels. these are 1mm with .5mm indents. I took this photo AFTER I straightened them under hot water. Instead of a 90 angle it was closer to 145 when I opened the box. (Printed as 1 piece this would have supported itself)
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_WGFXUg9zkL4/TdJYitqMVlI/AAAAAAAAokQ/-dYDO2VPgFs/s640/DSC01453.JPG

Assembled.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_WGFXUg9zkL4/TdJb29LNFTI/AAAAAAAAol4/o4I60OiVHCg/s640/DSC01467.JPG

Mocked up with the original warrtrakk fender and track.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_WGFXUg9zkL4/TdJacJmG2nI/AAAAAAAAokY/3ag-F1tmx3c/s640/DSC01472.JPG


This is a model that I had previously tried to print in WD, when it printed in that material it was a large blob of fused support material and model. The scale was just too small to print in WD. So when FUD was released I tried another print. Over all really impressed with the level of detail the material prints in and the smoothness of the surface finish. Not impressed with the brittle quality of thin printed planes.


The torso is hollow and contains some very thin planes. It looks to have either disintegrated in shipping or perhaps meshmedic "fixed" it as the upper torso should be hollow but is solid.

I'm not sure what happened here, one leg is fine and the other is a mess.

One for comparison with WD the saw tooth blades are much sharper on FUD and the finish is basically smooth.

I like FUD I'll certainly order it again but I'll probably print most kits using a mix of materials so the body parts are strong+cheaper and the detail parts are detailed.

My first FUD prints arrived today and I was very well pleased. They are 'cast iron' oven frames (for coke ovens) and some bridge shoes.

Hello Shapies,

I haven't posted much on this forum, but as this puzzle turned out so well, I decided I might as well show it here too. So without further ado, here is my newest puzzle:

The Twisted Starminx

Check out the Youtube Video!

More information and pictures can be found on the Twisty Puzzles Forum. I haven't yet figured out how to post the pictures here without them filling the whole page, so go check them out there.

This puzzle will be sold on eBay sometime in the next week or two. I will not be offering it for sale in my Shapeways Shop, but I do have 3 other puzzles for sale there.

Enjoy!

I printed another puzzle created by Frank Worrell, called Baseball Strike 2 http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~uy7t-isn/Puzzle/555/Baseball/Str ike2/

I have no words to describe how good this puzzle is. It looks great in its assembled state, it is challenging, and the disassembly sequence is varied and entertaining.

Assembled, this is how it looks. It is beautifully symmetrical; it somewhat resembles a baseball, hence the name.

index.php?t=getfile&id=8745&private=0

It takes 19 moves to take out the first piece. Sometime during the disassembly, none of the pieces is in its starting position. I like that Smile

index.php?t=getfile&id=8746&private=0

Here are the six flat pieces plus the frame that encloses them.

index.php?t=getfile&id=8747&private=0

The puzzle can also be assembled without the frame. It still holds together, but it takes only 8 moves to take out the first piece, so it's considerably easier. You could call that "Strike 1", I guess, though I don't know if this is the reason why the puzzle is called Strike 2. When starting from the disassembled puzzle, one could attempt to reach this position before tackling the full puzzle.

index.php?t=getfile&id=9107&private=0Mom loves it and brother kept it without getting upset. I have one gold plated glossy, one stainless and I have three more on the way ; gold plated matte, one in WSF without the inner spindles part to put my brother's picture in, and one in foggy glass. I'll show some pictures later after the next get here. Smile these should arrive Sometime in the next 12 days.

This is made to look like a classic sailors wheel with handles that at full size would be easily handled and are meant to help your hands grip and keep firm a captain's, first mate's, or other crew/ sailor's course and heading from veering. (provided a willing soul mans the helm)

Ofcoarse this is a jewelry, pendant, or decoration sized piece. miniature.

Thanks. Pictures to come soon. Thanks a lot!

Got a few more of my custom pet tags in this week. Very happy overall with how they turned out.

I got the first one in a few weeks back index.php?t=getfile&id=8689&private=0 I've made the eyelet a bit smaller one the new designs but I was very happy with the results, especially with the text on back index.php?t=getfile&id=8692&private=0

Got two oval versions in this week.

index.php?t=getfile&id=8690&private=0

I did a quick "dremel" polish to this one. Don't know why the "dot" over the eye didn't print correctly.

index.php?t=getfile&id=8691&private=0

And a quick polish to the reverse side. The text is very legible at this size, but I increaded the size of the font in my co-creator to make sure it prints even clearer.
index.php?t=getfile&id=8693&private=0

These tags look even better in person. As I'm sure you can tell from the photos I've got a real old digital camera that doesn't do too well this close up. I've got several other designs in my shop as well http://www.shapeways.com/shops/bluelinegecko?section=Pet+Tag s

All these designs can double as pendants and come with the free rubber necklace.

I have an HD black box camera for my car. The post connecting the camera body to the mount was always a bit janky and wobbled side to side. I of course kept trying to tighten it until I sheared the two dinky feet off the post bottom.

Printed a new one in WSF just needs to be shot with black satin spray paint. I increased the ball diameter by 1.5mm and the post was both toughened up and added surface area in case I wanted to glue it. The tolerances were tight enough it snapped into place with no need for glue!

Keeping up with Apple, not an easy job Smile

PadFoot has been completely redesigned to fit the iPad 2. It's been a lot of test models in the making, but it's working really well now.

Actually, having to redesign PadFoot for iPad 2 allowed me to put into place a few ideas I'd been toying with, and I think it's really improved on the original product.
The inclination angle has increased a bit, making your iPad easier to view and interact with; and by modifying the shape to sort of a wedge - a 'logical' shape for the function it performs - the material volume has decreased, allowing me to lower the price. A white version is now $20, a black one $25 - conveniently priced at the minimum order amount.

My first 3D printed model, "Letterhead" is a sculpture I designed in Wings3d (with a little tweaking in Meshlab), inspired by many games of Lexulous on Facebook with my brother.

I have made a few small changes to the model since printing it, making the neck area less bulky and beefing up the upper arm a little.

It lives in my new shop: here. I printed it in Strong White and Flexible - the details on the brain are very fine so a small wall thickness is advisable.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Mixup Prism combines features from Canny Uncube, Mixup Cube, Jack's Cube, and The Senior Barrel. All edges and center can be swapped by turning the middle slice in steps of 40 degrees (=360/9).

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

Enjoy!

Hi,

I received time ago two space filling polyhedra, but before showing them, I needed to make some drawings to explain the concept.
So here is the explanation.
You can transform a cube into a dodecahedron by drawing on each squared face a new edge and then pushing it outside the cube.
There is an analogy with a square that you can transform into an octagon by drawing new vertices at mid-edge and then pushing them outside.
Squares can fill the plane and if you tranform one square out of two (checkerboard pattern) you obtain a tiling of the plane made of octagons and another pointy shape (let's call it an anti-octagon).
index.php?t=getfile&id=8413&private=0
In the same way, cubes can fill space and applying the cube-to-dodecahedron transformation to one cube out of two you got a couple of space-filling polyhedra: the dodecahedron, of course, and a pointy shape that we can call an anti-dodecahedron.
Let's stop the explanations one second and see the results.
The dodecahedron:
../modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=223206&f=photos/photo36352.jpg
The anti-dodecahedron:
../modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=223206&f=photos/photo36353.jpg

Now, if you consider that you are filling the space only with dodecahedra (the anti-dodecahedra being replaced by void), you will find that dodecahedra can fill space with a ratio of 90.43% (for reference, this ratio is 74.05% for spheres). Not bad isn't it?
Very Happy

Hi All,
