|First Shapeways prints (Chess pieces) [message #12758] Wed, 12 May 2010 16:31 UTC
I test printed the pawn with three different materials, to see what I liked best, and to test how they look together as separate sides. He's my take on my first ever prints from Shapeways.|
I printed SWF, Grey Robust, and Alumide.
SWF, looks and feels the best, definatly good for the "white side". You can see a tiny bit of faceting in the model if you look close, so this material certainly prints accurately.
Grey Robust, looks good, but has some flaws from the printing process, where the beads, or ropes show, and a seam all along one side. Still, not a huge distraction from the print, but something to notice.
Alumide. Cool material. I wasn't expecting it to be dusty though. Not sure how to clean it best, but not worried about it either.
