Creating an awesome object from scratch is always fun and to hold it in your hands is magic but when you receive positive response from the community it was designed for is priceless!
Shapeways has been super with me! I am new to this and they always take the time to answer all my questions... Shapeways and its employees are incredible!
Shapeways is awesome. The ability to create anything your imagination and capabilities allow is a powerful thing. I'm in love.
If you have a model created from several objects or meshes, first make sure that each individual mesh is manifold (water-tight). Any vertices that get selected when you press that key combination are non-manifold vertices that have to be fixed. Often, fixing these is just a matter of creating new faces (F key) out of sets of 3 or 4 vertices.
If you're new to 3D printing, this mini-tutorial covers some of the most common things to keep in mind when designing your model. These basic principles will prepare you for designing for 3D printing, using your existing 3D modeling skills.
To best assist you in designing your 3D models, we’ve collected a series of design tips to help you optimize the price of your model, based on the material you are printing in.
Like many of our printer technologies, our full color sandstone printers work by laying down thin layers of powder and selectively binding this powder together to produce solid parts. Unlike our other printer technologies, this printer also uses a set of CMYK printheads to color the part while binding the powder together to produce the colorful solid parts.
