I originally designed this as a gift for someone who likes owls. The original model was not printed at Shapeways and wouldn't have met the Shapeways design guidelines to be printed. Once I discovered Shapeways and saw that they were the best for this sort thing, that was a problem. It was one of my favorite of my own designs and it was a source of great frustration that it was unprintable. It was around that time, that I also noticed that it looked sort of like an avocado, so I changed the name to reflect that.

Recently, I spent many hours redesigning the Avocaowl from scratch and made numerous small adjustments to the original idea so that it would not only print, but print at a reasonable price. I think I succeeded and the result (in two colors of strong and flexible plastic) arrived in the mail today.

Here is a link to the Avocaowl in my shop, where there are many other things (with shorter stories behind them) that people also might like: http://shpws.me/sDy6

Hello,

This is by far my favourite print, its the well known Batarang based on the movie "The Dark Knight"

It's been a while since I made this, but now I have pictures of it in situ it seems like a good time to write about the first thing I got 3D printed.

For some time I'd been thinking of making my Dad a shield with a coat of arms and motto.
index.php?t=getfile&id=80311&private=0
The motto was the initial impetus, so some explanation of that is in order.
When my brothers and I were children, one of our favourite pastimes was constructing a precariously balanced pile of stones, retreating, and throwing pebbles at it until we managed to knock it over. We'd do this at the sea-side, river bank, or anywhere else rocks were available.
One year while on holiday I found my brothers throwing stones at the very thing we'd come to see - a glacier. I commented to my father "We came, we saw, we threw stones at it", which he found amusing. Many years later he mentioned it, and it occurred to me that it might make a fun project and present.

It took some time for all the pieces to fall into place, but when 3D printing was available with an easy creation app, and I'd discovered a reliable translation service, the stage was set. Even more time elapsed, but when I got around to getting the motto translated into Latin, I was committed.

Aiming for a bitmap suitable for Shapeway's 2D to 3D creation service, I started by drawing the shield in a vector graphics package. The text was warped to the flowing path using wordart in MS Word, the sole virtue of which was being installed at the time.
The key to this whole process was expediency - finishing the details (e.g. the scrolls) was done by editing pixels after exporting the bitmap.

While for a long time I considered using stainless steel, I eventually chose bronze for the print. Although steel is cheaper per cubic centimeter, the resolution and minimum size of bronze at the time meant I could create a thinner, smaller and therefore cheaper object.

When it arrived, it looked good, but still needed some work to colour in. I took the advice of the metal glaze tutorial and got Pebeo Vitrea 160 paint.
This is really intended for glass, so it's transparent, but paradoxically some of the colours are rather dark on an opaque surface. The paint is quite 'gloppy', and in my unskilled hands tends to be quite variable in colour density, depending on layer thickness. Also it seems to start drying quickly, so re-visiting a thinly-painted area roughens the surface into streaks.
Some experimentation on copper-plated coins showed that darkness on an opaque background was an issue, and furthermore, the first coat on the metal would take on a yellowish tinge on firing.
Fortunately, I discovered that a couple of undercoats of white will mask off the yellowing, and found reasonable colour mixtures (with white) which were acceptably coloured and consistent as a thick layer.
Some very careful painting (and several firings) later, I had the shield finished.

I gave it to my Dad for his birthday, and he did seem pleased. The photos are of the shield where he has fixed it, on the internal front door of their house.

This item has been designed in reference to the low-poly artwork by Timothy Reynold.
Each triangle is slightly angled and colored individually using a custom algorithm.

Get in touch if you are interested in a different size, flavor of meshing, or color gradient.

Hope you like it.

This beautiful Christmas bulbs are full of life. They are not only round balls that give your Christmas tree at more shine, they carry little scenes or a tiny little snowflake within, which can move and swing.

These baubles will charm every viewer with the question "how did they put that things inside the ball???"

Give your Christmas a touch of fun and and marvel at the Christmas ball with the eyes of a child.

My Christmas balls have finally arrived. :)
Last year I made some Christmas balls for my family and because all family members where very delighted at my Christmas bulbs, I made a couple more this year.

Some of them are inspired by the German fairytale "Die Sterntaler" or "The Star Money".

The bauble with the free-hanging snowflake was printed in the material White Strong & Flexible. The others where printed in the material White Strong & Flexible Polished.

I have a request : Can I please still get on the holiday gift guide?!

Trains of War has kicked of a new product line of WWII themed armoured train carriages. Leveraging the flexibility of 3D printing, ToW brings a new dynamic to the model train market by allowing the customer to mix 'n' match the products to produce a customised series of rail carriages that reflect their personal touches within their complete rail collection. This is achieved through standardisation of our primary product interface points; all accessories will fit all attachment points and all carriage tops will fit all carriage bottoms.

One of the major questions or concerns we address with potential customers is 'but my train set is modern America, how will an WWII armoured train fit in?'. In order to help the hobbiest explain a 100T armoured fort rumbling across the mid-west, we encourage the concept of a museum train-set. This involves a modern locomotive hauling historical carriages from one museum/show to another.

Our first product printed has been printed and is currently being used to;
1. Validate / stimulate customer interest levels
2. Confirm standardised interface dimensions\
3. Develop promotional material such as;
3a. How to paint
3b How to assemble
3c Concept of mix 'n' match
3d Promote the museum train concept.

Supporting our kickoff, we have also opened a facebook page and connected with a number of n-scale modelling groups.

My Axe pendants are finally arrived and I'm already wearing them!
Initially, I had created the basic structure in Blender, but in the end I decided to sculpt the finer details in Zbrush.
The Shapeways print is really detailed! I did not think the print have been so fine!
I hope you would feature this :)

They are already in my shop: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/fra

Hey guys,

I received my first print in premium silver. I'm really impressed by the quality..
This pendant is loosely based on celtic knots (I noticed that are also some similarities to the Dutch "stroopwafels" ;-) ) and is slightly bigger than a 2 euro coin..
Nice little detail is that the woven pattern is modelled as a closed loop.

I just got my Christmas Grumpy Cat Ornament back from Shapeways in Full Color Sandstone. It turned out really well! The Sandstone is the perfect texture- he looks like he'll come to life any moment! It can be used as a bauble or Christmas tree topper....

One day I was playing around in Maya and thought "Wouldn't this make an interesting ring". It took about 10 minutes to create it in Maya. I'm really happy with the outcome. I don't think it's something that can easily be done without 3D printing. Although it failed checks with Polished Metals, I did get a really nice print in Raw Brass.

index.php?t=getfile&id=77984&private=0

Because the design is hollow, it's really cheap to print. I need to figure out if it's possible to get it printed in the precious materials, ie: gold, silver, platinum. While the automatic checks failed, I think it could be done.

Hi!

We have just set up shop and would love for our new shop to be featured. We are Kaileigh and Dave (Studio KandD), a product design and architecture studio based in London. Our aim to create beautiful objects for the home that are inspired by our love of architecture. We love designing, we love obsessing over the details.

index.php?t=getfile&id=77746&private=0

We are really excited to share our latest collection - Christmas Baubles.
Our tree decorations combine seasonal tradition with contemporary design and production techniques. The Christmas baubles spirals contain free hanging traditional forms/objects that we think look pretty cool on any Christmas tree. We think these are pretty cool, and hope you'll get as much enjoyment from hanging them on your Christmas tree as we had creating them.

We hope @aimeemoyer loves it as much as we do!

Kaileigh and Dave

I have a passion for Star Wars and 3d printing at Shapeways has given me the tools I need to recreate some of my favorite props from those movies like Han Solo's blaster. I made all of the "greeblies" to be used iwth an Airsoft Mauser replica. I also designed some nice stands for the blasters and its all in my shop.

Just in time for Christmas!!!

This is an updated version of my original Centrifugal Puzzle Box in the style of a present called 'Present - Centrifugal Puzzle Box'
I have created a YouTube video detailing the functions and workings of the puzzle box

Here is a snippet from the product description:
Present - Centrifugal Puzzle Box - A one of a kind gift box that adds excitement and fun to gift giving and requires out of the box thinking to solve!
At first this puzzle box looks complicated and difficult to solve, the lid holds four letter selectors that can each be rotated to select one of six letters that click into place providing 1,296 (6^4) possible combinations of letters that can be selected by the user. However don't be fooled, these letter selectors do absolutely nothing to help you to unlock the puzzle box and are purely a distraction to confuse and prolong the users frustration (and fun!). The puzzle box can only (but not obviously) be unlocked by spinning the box on a flat surface, the lid can then be simply lifted off and the gift inside retrieved. The box can then be locked again by placing the lid back on and lightly shaking the box to engage the locks.

Fusion Imaging has created a mount for the iPad Mini for DJI Phantom drone flyers.

We worked hard on this one to get the thickness and strength right, and we are really happy with the result.

It looks great, and performs like nothing else. The grip on the iPad is phenominal, so much so that we made a video to demonstrate just how well it grips.

We created this really cool 'deep' Visor/FPV Hood for the Apple iPhone 5/5s

We call it part of our new 'design philosphy' by adding a few innovative ideas like 'easy glide' that we developed as well as things like spring loaded clips to create a much better fit.

This thing really fits like a glove and we are pretty proud of it.

We have an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and Samsung S5 Visor also coming out shortly.

Today we released Click-On Leg Extenders for the Phantom.

There are a lot of leg extenders out there but we'd like to think that ours are uniquely designed and innovative. They literally just click on and off the legs of the DJI Phantom Drone.

These are a 'straight' design so really only suitable for the Phantom 2 and Phantom 2 Vision.

We will be releasing a 'wide' version soon for the Phantom 2 using GoPro and Phantom 2 Vision + where the legs are angled out to take into account the off centre camera of the Phantoms so that the leg extenders don't show up on your video footage.

Hey guys,

For the enthusiasts out there we have created a 'Flytrext LIve' mount for the DJI Phantom multcopter.

Basically the Flytrex Live is a black box, so for the enthusiasts out there its a great accessory to log all your flights. We designed this from a customer request. Its great to have customers out there who love what your doing and want you to make things for them because they cant find it anywhere else. This is the kind of work we love to do at Fusion Imaging.

You can find it here https://www.shapeways.com/model/2702608/flytrex-live-mount-f or-dji-phantom-quadcopter.html

So, from the beginning of time, I've wanted a Legion of Superheroes flight ring. Well, okay, not that long, but since my teen years, maybe earlier. When Shapeways first started, I stated regularly looking for such a ring. I found designs I liked and bought a few in a variety of materials. I had one made of stainless steel which I had laboriously hand-sanded to a sweet satin finish. Then I lost it in Las Vegas. (Not lost as in losing a bet. Just misplaced it.)

Eventually, I realized that I needed to make my own. When polished brass became available, I knew it was time to start.

Alas, my artistic skill are next to non-existent. Luckily, there's OpenSCAD! After a lengthy learning period, I managed to make a nice looking Legion logo, based on my favorite renderings from the comics. I printed that out in steel and yellow plastic, as a proof of concept. The results were promising:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71309&private=0

With a good-looking logo ready, I needed to make the ring body. I printed out three different designs, taking advantage of the "Print It Anyway" option to test a variety of ways of dealing with some sharp edges. This also let me verify the sizing. I ended up choosing the one on the right:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71310&private=0

Meanwhile, I needed a way to add some sort of black inlay around the logo. Some Googling found me EFColor, an enamel powder that melts at a mere 300F. I had to order it from the UK. Once it arrived, I tried some red inlay on the steel test logo. My clumsy method was to sprinkle it all over the logo, then brush it off the face with a business card. Two applications of the powder do the trick, leaving a glossy smooth surface.:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71311&private=0

Having chosen a ring body from my yellow plastic tests, I ordered it in polished brass. With trembling hands, I opened the package, delighted with the quality of the result:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71312&private=0

Finally, I filled in around the logo with black powder. Some stray flecks remained on the face of the logo, but these were easily removed with a brass scraper:

index.php?t=getfile&id=71313&private=0

I am unreasonably giddy every time I look at it. If only it could actually make me fly!

The customizable lightning bolt bottle opener came about at my company's monthly Beer-O-Clock event. Everyone was always looking for a bottle open so myself and a co-working came up with the idea of creating an opener based on our departments lightning bolt logo. It can be personalize with a short name or initials and is a great gift for the holidays or special occasion. Thank you for considering the customizable lightning bolt bottle opener to be feature this for the holidays.

here is my fresh out of the printer fish bones pendant and it doesn't even smell. My Mum favourited it out of all my models (she likes to eat fish) Being a first mate on a sailboat we come across a lot of fishbones but none as nice and decorative as this one. I should ask the fishermen what they think of it. But your opinion is also very appreciated (always good to get some feedback)

The idea came when I saw a graffiti on some wall in an harbour and realized that it could actually look quite nice in the maritime section of my shop. Maybe in the near future I'll make a whole (uneaten) fish, so there would be a bit more choice.

Enjoy!

hi,

my 'old' gecko arrived yesterday in a new dress (i.e. material). Its super snug in your hand in stainless steel, which is about to become my favourite material. I spend a lot of time designing it but I am quite happy with the result. You can see more pics here: http://shpws.me/vkcp . I adore geckos as they are beautiful and useful (eating all the horrible mosquitoes). Thanks to shapeways who's done a great job. I hope you out there like it as much as I do.

Hi Shapeways fans,

Moby Maze is a mechanical maze based on a Mobius Strip. Half of the maze is at one side, the other half is, well, at the same side. The object is to remove the ring. It was originally prototyped by George Miller of PuzzlePalace.com. This version is made of 3D-printed metal.It is very strong, impossible to cheat. :D

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 was speechless when I tried it on.

Thank you Shapeways for making my "Yooper" Ring possible! It's going viral!

Hello everybody!

This is my first post in this forum, and I'm posting my first 3D Print ever.
As a self-taught designer, I loved the idea of 3D printing since the first time I heard about it, and when I first read about the existence of this awesome 3D printing community I was simply amazed.
With both of my parents being architects, I've always been familiar with Golden Ratio-based designs, which inspired me to create this pendant for my first ever 3D print.
After almost 4 weeks of waiting, I have finally received my 3D model. I will never forget the feeling of opening the little box and seeing for the first time an item that was originally conceived in your mind and brought to life from what started as a box primitive in 3DS Max.

index.php?t=getfile&id=70093&private=0

Material: Stainless Steel

Here is the link to the product page: http://shpws.me/v0aw (It is still in Beta)
I hope you like it!
Feedback is welcome :D

I am very pleased with how my latest sculptural piece came out. It's called the Joi Konpurekkusu Torii (ジョイコンプレックス鳥居) and it's my whimsical interpretation of Torii that pays homage to traditional forms.

The goal behind this little sculpture is to request that those purchasing it use it as a traveling companion. I hope to see my little Torii posing in neat places all around the world!

Hi everybody.
This is our CYCLES, the first try with intricate shapes. Pendant, Keychain, or simply to have on your desk to admire its intricate geometry. There is also a little bit of our aeronautical background...

Got them a week ago, they fit me perfectly.
Exquisite geometry, floating lens system and a unique bridge design that assures perfect balancing while wearing them.


The spacing between the two lens holder is exactly 4mm allowing for standard optical screws.
The nose clips are round and flat, allowing you to fit a small piece of cork for additional comfort.

I simply cannot wait to wear them.
Please feel free to "Feature This for Holiday"
