A Flood of FUD: Ultra High Detail 3D Printing is a Hit

Since the introduction of Shapeways Frosted Detail and Frosted Ultra Detail we have had a flood of orders from people making most of the high resolution 3D prints.  Many of you have shared your items as they have been delivered to your door and it has been really exciting for us to see your reactions.  Our printers are working around the clock, and even the UPS crew are struggling to keep up.  Check out some of the images posted so far in the It Arrived forum.

Baltimore must be on intimate terms with his local UPS driver.

What is most amazing is how incredibly small some of the prints are and just how fine the details are, models that make a pin look huge like CGD’s military models….

Read on to see more amazingly detailed 3D prints in the almighty FUD…..


Amazing detail in Eppium’s lizard.

We are seeing loads of model trains roll through by the likes of Stony Smith and Jettuh.

Not just trains, its HO accessories like a garbage bin, of course..

1:40 models by Kaetemi are looking incredible..

Menger sponges by Virtox showing just how small and clean apertures can be in FUD.

Be sure to keep showing us your models as they come in, whether they be our ‘classic materials, or the new FUD, Smooth WSF or Glazed Ceramics!!!!
