|Black Ceramic Coaster & 2 FCS Mini Snowboards [message #45024] Wed, 07 March 2012 16:41 UTC
*Quick side note: Ordered on 24th Feb, arrived today after a 48hour UPS delivery, quick turnaround again, Thanks Shapeways!*
When I saw SW was introducing Black Ceramics I thought it's about time I tried Ceramics, see what they're like. They were announced and the following morning I quickly made a Coaster to try and see what it's like, and ordered it along with the two mini Snowboards.
This is a very basic model but it turned out better than I was hoping, I thought the Glazing wouldn't stay on the sharp edges but it does quite well. Also the TRN (My initials) looks better with the slight build up of glazing around the letters:
The little feet worked wonders!
It's intended use:
And the two Mini Snowboards, they measure about 10.5cm Long, and I used a model of a board from Google 3DW & UV mapped in Blender:
Overall I am very happy with Black Ceramics (And the order in general), I just need to think of something else to make in it now. Spoon maybe?
Still waiting for Squishy, Strong & Flexible I have a simple Watch Strap ready to be printed, Can't wait.
