I am AMAZED by the detail the shapeways team managed to print this silver mandelbulb ring with.
It deserves a feature Wink

Hi Natalia & Shapeways!

Thank you for the ongoing opportunities like this exciting new partnership with Neiman Marcus.

Please feature my new Infinite Love Ring.
The jewel of this ring is a heart when viewed from the front and an infinity sign when viewed from the top.

The design was inspired by a modern adaptation of the Ramayana myth which describes an ideal love. (From "After the Flood" by Randy Baker & Rorschach Theater)

The ring looks great in your new bronze and I hope you'll think so too. http://shpws.me/pCcw
Thanks again for the opportunities.

Best wishes,
Rose Thun, Design Rosetta

Hi all,

Now that the price of the Ceramics is lower than ever (thank you Shapeways), it is a good time to mention again the Whirl Cup:
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_1221785_1230880_1377204088.jpg

and the Sphere Cup:
https://images1.sw-cdn.net/model/picture/674x501_1158390_1128140_1373488899.jpg
I have lowered my markup so that their price is now $29.90 which is quite attractive compared to their previous price.

More information on these designs (and other ones) in this thread!


So many things to design, so little time...

I designed these shot glasses based on a 3D scan of my own hand. Inspired by my love for the expression and form of our hands, drinking from one conjures some deep thoughts: "This is the best drink I ever had, hands down," and "Tough to refuse a shot when it's handed to you!" The puns are endless fun ;D

I feel this ceramic shot glass takes advantage of a lot of what 3D printing has to offer, and I am excited to produce a series of these in different poses for any quirky party, bar, or coffee shop. It will certainly hold espresso, and it comes in four sizes (.6, 1, 1.5 and 2 ounces). The reservoir travels organically down the wrist ending behind the knuckles while the fingers remain solid for support.

I was ecstatic when I unboxed these and the fingers held up nice and strong! And everything was so shiny in gloss black! Thanks so much Shapeways for realizing my idea so flawlessly!

These shakers shown in eggshell blue can be used with salt and pepper, but why limit yourself to two spices when several colors of ceramics are available at Shapeways? Use them for MSG, parsley flakes, garlic powder or whatever spices up your life! These are prototype shakers but they shake, shake, shake very well. Slightly revised designs will be released once they are manufactured and evaluated.

The TWIST vase is inspired by flowers twisting and blowing in the wind. I think it's incredible how flowers grow on an impossibly thin stem and support a large, beautiful bloom. With TWIST, I wanted to capture that sense of impossibility and elegance. To see it standing with flowers in it is really something to behold. Dry arrangements can be done, but water makes it actually quite steady.

index.php?t=getfile&id=44103&private=0

When I got my first print of TWIST it was chipped and had a hairline crack, but the good folks @Shapeways sent me a replacement! I was pretty happy about that!

You can find more 3D printing in my shop and see what other stuff I'm up to on my website or facebook page. Thanks!

I am really excited about the drop in ceramics pricing. I made this heart-shaped dipping dish for my wife for Valentine's Day 2012, and we've been using it ever since. There has been no discoloration from the vinegar in 18 months of regular use.

People responded really well to the design, and I've sold a few of them, but I think the high price kept many people from actually buying one. It feels much better to offer it at a lower price, and I'd love to see it featured again. Even if it doesn't sell, I think it's a nice example of what can be done with ceramics.

Thank you!

Eric

Hey hey,

I would like to see my printed Coraline S. Bulky in the featured Ceramics section next week.

Inspired by Coral I model a little tealight in Lightwave. A colleague of mine ordered "Coraline S." in sandstone but it was too thin for Ceramics.
So i decide to make a more bulky version of it - "Coraline S. Bulky" was born.
I am very happy about the gloss, the quality rating and that it now could be printed much cheaper cause the pricing is now based on volume instead of surface area.

Best regards
Stephan

Hi Everyone! I am Aaron, the lead designer over at http://www.polychemy.com/.

Recently i took part in a 3D printing competition, and we were tasked to create a 3D Printed abacus.

So i came up with this crazy piece!
A 3D printed cylindrical abacus, that can do '2 calculations in one'. Also this piece can be pulled apart when the right number sequence is entered, reveling a secret compartment.

index.php?t=getfile&id=43761&private=0

I wanted to create something Ancient and Sculptural, a piece that could showcase the power and beauty of 3D printing.
This piece was printed with Alumide, which really gave it an authentic 'stony' look! Which was a really welcomed side effect Smile


I posted many more pictures and a simple 'making off', over at the 3D printing forums here:
http://www.3dprinting-forums.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=712 3

You can purchase this sculpture at my shop here:

The basic idea of this project - to create sculptural objects that accurately reflect the complex structures of nature - has evolved as one of the passions of my life.  When I was a teenager, I spent much of my time collecting insects and assembling skeletons from dead animals that I found.   For me, these pursuits were a perfect marriage of my curiosity about nature and my interest in the visual arts.  I didn't want to just collect things and put them in jars of alcohol or formaldehyde.  I wanted to find a way to display their intricate beauty. 

For several decades I have used a camera and computer software programs to produce images for lectures, magazines, and textbooks.   With the advent of inexpensive 3D printing technology such as that offered here at Shapeways, I have started to apply these skills to create three dimensional objects.  The goal of my project is to create a collection of dozens of different sculptures of animal skulls -- in effect, a skeletal zoo.   Each sculpture will be based upon a CT scan taken from an actual specimen. 

I am launching this as a KICKSTARTER project today. I am hoping this will be an effective way to get the word out. I have dozens of CT scans to process and hope to print hundreds of skulls. Each skull takes me days to process from the CT scan, and I really cannot justify spending all the time unless I know that someone besides me thinks this is a great project.

Please check out my Kickstarter project here.

Shown here are the 3 prototype sculptures that I have printed at Shapeways. In addition to all the common animals we know and love, I have a series of Endangered Species I am working on, and even a CT scan of my own skull. I am super excited about this project.

And as an addendum to this notice, I would like to thank everyone at Shapeways who has been processing my models. I appreciate your patience. I have repeatedly uploaded models that are too thin to print and which get rejected over and over again. It it an extremely painstaking process to go through hundreds and hundreds of CT scan slices and selectively thicken an area on the inside of a skull, or to delete paper-thin internal structures that don't need to be part of the print.

I posted this thread in the "It Arrived", but my excitement is flowing over into the "Feature This" section....

I designed this Pendent a few months ago and had it made in Frosted Ultra Detail. I wanted to get it printed in Silver and Gold Plated Brass for gifts, but I had issues balancing the cage wires with the minimum material conditions. As they got thicker, things looked weirder.

I was really stressed about buying two in premium metals, since this was my first run at printing this pendant. The two Pendants arrived today and I couldn't be more happy.

I was also concerned about enclosing a part within another, since it was going to be polished and knowing the inside would be more "raw" metal. Again, it's perfect and Shapeways did an amazing job. The Silver version was done in Premium and it's my personal favorite.

Thanks again,

Darren Hartenstine

A new ring designed for silver and brass. https://www.shapeways.com/model/1213018/laplacian-ring-sz-7. html

Organic branching forms emerge from the top of this intricate sterling silver ring. The complex structure of this ring recalls the forms of stony corals and dendritic crystals.

These are randomly generated designs, created by drawing a line with right-angled turns in a periodic 2d plane, and then wrapping it around a torus. Each bracelet is a new run of the algorithm, so it's a one of a kind.

I gave a couple of them to my sister for her birthday.

They printed great. Since they're in SF, they're flexible enough to bend and fit over somebody's wrist. (All the designs are 'open' somewhere on the torus, even though it's not immediately obvious.)

I'm fairly new here and just got a few of my designs printed. Specifically, I received my King and Queen Key Chain pieces. (Any feedback on my shop or designs is greatly appreciated, BTW...)

Here's some history...

I've been designing for probably 25 years, but the large majority of that focus was on engineered products. Things like Fridges, Faucets, Hearing Aids, Medical Equipment, Mail Processing Machines, and much more. It's certainly paid the bills, but artistic spontaneity took a back seat to safety and efficiency.

I've known about 3D printing for more than 10 years, and even had parts printed for demonstrations and product testing/prototyping. Recently, I purchased a 3D printer and started created anything I could think of –quickly learning the idiosyncrasies and limitations.

I came to the site after completing a design for my son – arm gauntlets like what Batman would wear over this arms. Although the cost was prohibitive from me getting two printed in a higher quality material, I was very interested in your business model.

So interested in fact, I started a design rush to get as many ideas uploaded to the site in a limited amount of time. I called them design sprints, since my goal was completing a model-a-day. I figured that if I worked too long on a particular design without uploading it, I risk wasting time on something that wouldn't connect with your audience.

Don't get me wrong, I have several designs that will take months to complete, I just wanted to experience the interaction and process with simpler 3D models. I also want to stress that I'm not sloppy in my designs, so achieving what I did took dedication, concentration and used nearly all my engineering experience.

So far, I completed more than 15 designs and one of those is a Chess Set – one set is small (1.5 Inches) and is meant for Key Chains and the other is based on the Standard Staunton Chess set. I like to repurposes my designs to maximize their effectiveness.

My focus this week was on Pendants and I created a Butterfly, Heart and Anchor. All of these can be worn around the neck and the Anchor has two additional sizes that can be printed larger in Ceramic or Flexible.

I purchased the King and Queen from the Chess set and had one printed in Stainless and the other in Frosted. In retrospect, I should have printed the Queen in Stainless too, but I wanted to see what Frosted look like. I will be ordering a new Queen shortly.

I've tried submitting other designs and the only challenge has been notification of failure. When this happened to a design that did not include the material as a default, it still brought the whole page down. It would be nice if you could find a way to automate the model evaluation and get failure back to designers quicker. I certainly understand the amount of processing this would take, but maybe to minimize the eval time, you only process models that have been static on the site for a few days.

This has been a great experience and I look forward to getting more ideas created and printed. Thanks for the venue.

Growing up, I always liked the Jetsons, especially the futuristic, space age architecture of their home town, Orbit City. This collection is inspired by that space age, all things orbital, perspective.

The earrings look great in the bright colors of the dyed strong and flexible material and are incredibly lightweight. The stainless came out a bit heavy for earrings but perfect as a pendant. The pendant shown is the bronze glossy finish.

This is my first ever 3d printed model, designed from scratch with Zbrush using a 'real life' gargoyle from Notre Dame as reference.

The story goes like this: I have been working on designing gothic styled art works inspired by the gothic cathedrals and so spent a lot of time with my nose in gothic architecture books. Always thought it's such a pity that i never got to make anything resembling the more funny and creepy looking part, most seemingly out-of-place character in a cathedral - the gargoyles. But finally now i made it...the Desktop Gargoyle, to guard and keep the workspace safe, and maybe bring a smile on your face Smile

I just love that alumide provides such a great level of detail. And what a perfect fit it is for the gargoyle stone-like look.

That was a lot of learning before i was able to create this, then i was really happy when i finally created the UV correctly & relief according to the texture.
The original idea is not from me as a lot of people must know... But anyway i'm really happy with the results & i hope Shapeways will feature this one too Wink

Hi I'm a self developed graphic designer from Czech republic. I recently discovered Shapeways and its potential to manifest ideas it this reality.

I would like to present first 3d printed pendants created with Blender. First pendant is called Guardian and this one is completely my own idea. I was inspired by jing & jang symbolism (this is probably very obvious), but I tried to create it in a new unusual form.
Here is the link to item: Pendant Guardian


Another pendant is based on Encrypted language, which my wife developed. This one is called Absolute Love and the symbol has 3 sence in one- love manifesting itself as a harmony in infinite Universe. My wife provided me with a sketch of symbol and I recreated it in 3d. Here you can see her original sketch I started modeling process from: Sketch

Here is the link: Pendant Absolute Love

I very much enjoyed creating these pendants and even more I enjoy to see them in reality. We really welcome idea of 3d printing and we will definitely continue to create more interesting designs. If you would like to keep an eye on our creation, here is our SHOP

Big thanks to all Shapeways crew for making this possible. Order, payment and dilivery was very fast and without any problems.

P.S. Sorry for my lame english
