My wife loves Octopi, so I made this octopus ring. Now I could have modeled it from scratch, but instead I bough a fresh piece of octopus tentacle and scanned with my small canon camera and recap360. It took a few attempts to get a successful scan. It turns out that the white suckers are impossible to scan with a photo camera as the computer has nothing to identify the surface. To help the computer along we applied different colors and dots with nail lacquer and spray cans to get a good result :-)
It was quite fun and challenging to do, I hope we're not the only ones who like the outcome.

Here's the direct link

These are a number of items that I designed for my dad's model railroad layout, specifically for a station scene that he was working on.

While they are sold individually, they could be bought together as a set to provide all the required details for any station.

Hello all,

this is a fairly simple design but one that would resonate with anyone who has ever travelled, looked at a map and seen the phrase 'you are here'!

https://www.shapeways.com/product/ZTYA8R979/youarehere-bookm ark-large?li=shop-inventory&optionId=40655804

Check it out and let me know what you think. I originally had a smaller design with an extra language, but it was difficult to clearly see the letters - this is much better!

These wonderfully finished cufflinks have just been delivered and I am ecstatically happy with them.

I did wonder if you'd be so kind as to feature them for me?!

There is something so thrilling about bringing things to life and realising ideas, and these are no exception. Before sitting down at the computer or bench I often venture out to museums or unusual spaces to find that all important inspiration, but these were created during the 'learning phase' of my 3D exploration. I followed an online tutorial for Rhinoceros and here we are.

I have been taught all of the of the necessary skills to hand manufacture jewellery and carve wax, but there is obviously a good reason to have skills in 3D model building too, as the industry has long been moving in this direction.

I hope you guys like them.

Hello everyone! I have had reasonable success with my Ultra Slim Ring Box from last year that makes the ring spin when it is opened, so I made a new ring box that follows the Ultra Slim Design.

My new box still fits in the fifth jeans pocket and uses a similar mechanism to a USB Thumb Drive to have the ring slide (or maybe pop?) out of the ring box. I have also made a little improvement on the ring holder so that it can hold more rings more securely than my earlier model.

If you could, please take a look!

I was out for a walk a while ago and saw how ubiquitous Apple iPhone/iPod earbuds were. I figured that since people put jewelry on their ears why not on their earbuds (which are now called earpods, I didn't get that memo from Apple). So I make a few prototypes and here they are!

Hello,

I recently printed a small vase of my own design and thought it would be great to get it out there a bit more:

index.php?t=getfile&id=92513&private=0

I actually had it sitting around for a while before finally getting a flower into it and taking some photos. The design really came alive with just the single, simple flower in it and just looks great (imho!).

I designed it based on the idea that so many people are living in smaller spaces with less storage for big vases and less room for big bunches of flowers. This little vase works well with a single flower (as pictured) or even just a couple of flowers and really sets off a small table nicely.

Link to the vase in my shop:

Thanks

This decorated gyroscope like pendant can freely rotate and spin on 2 axles. This pendent was inspired by my personal practice of yoga and meditation, this piece looks at the concept of trying to stay centered in an ever changing world.

This pendant was inspired by the heart-shaped leaves of the violet plant. Printed in steel with a polished gold finish this piece has graceful lines and is light but surprisingly strong. It would make a nice Valentine's Day gift I think.

Hi,

I've recently released my first product, I'm very proud to present the Fitbit Flex Armour series. These are two similar cases; one with a clip for your shirt or jeans and another with a loop which can be used as a pendant or keychain.

This project came out of a bigger idea that reached me late at night - I'm still working on that (in fact, I'm wearing it today) - but these cases help bridge the gap for users who want to wear their fitbit flex but don't appreciate the available bands. I was amazed to learn this is a fairly common problem - my friend is very active in martial arts and she mentioned the band gets in the way and she can't find another solution to wear during spars and training. She prefers the pendant design.

The design takes inspiration from the namesake - armour. Close fitting and protective, but still beautiful. Irregardless, whether it is featured or not, I hope you appreciate the design and invite your feed back and suggestions!

I have received a lot of support from the Shapeway Forums. I'm working on a premium line for the Fitbit Flex Armour which will be released in polished brass and silver. The technical chops of the Shapeways community members have made a big difference!

Came up with this on a whim. Might hurt just a little to wear, but you'll never forget you have your wedding band on.

The print below is Polished Brass, and I think it came out pretty good. I have sizes 4 through 10.

Hi all,

Today I received my second print in premium silver, and again it's really well executed! I got this model in stainless steel a few ago as well, but i thought a premium silver one would be really nice also.. Hope you like it enough to feature this :-)

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 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
What do you think about it?
Thanks!

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....

It'd be fantastic for me if you'd consider featuring my ornament and/or my shop which contains a bunch of original, colorful designs that I think could make great stocking fillers...

Thanks for looking and have a great Christmas!

Best wishes,

Hello,

I'm an emerging artist with a life-long passion for mechanical movements. This passion was developed over 25 years of working in the material handling industry where I wrenched on, designed and witnessed the most sophisticated automated equipment built to improve our lives.

My sculptures are created from a vision to form my passions to art. I View this Vision as being giving the Product of a Chaotic Math Equation without the Formula. It's like Reverse Engineering a dream.........
