Golden Snitch ring box
philnolan3d @durantula As far as the swiveling being loose you could try putting bit of sponge or foam between the pin and the outside of the hole.
philnolan3d @irishman47As I said below I've sold over 170 of these (over 175 now I think) and have only heard of 5 or 6 problems so hopefully that answers your question. Unfortunately on the internet people tend to only comment when something's not right.
philnolan3d @michaeltjin I'm curious, have you tried to bend one part or the other one at all to see if that helps things? You shouldn't have to do that but it seems worth a shot.
philnolan3d @tobiasthirteenleatherworks There is a small gap just to ensure the raised parts can slide over each other like in the photos, but only a millimeter or so and it's the same distance all around
philnolan3d @tobiasthirteenleatherworks Again, very sorry to hear this. I just counted and I've sold around 170 of these and have heard of this happening maybe 5 or 6 times now. Shapeways should be able to solve it. Unfortunately 3D printing isn't quite the same as buying a mass manufactured product.
philnolan3d @michaeltjin I'm very sorry that happened. This is a very rare occurrence. If you contact Shapeways support they can make it right.
philnolan3d @Coo32@Coo32 Thanks for the info. It may have just been a one time printing error though.
philnolan3d @karl_lehnhardt Hi I'm not at home to check right now but I've tested it with the largest men's rings I could find and they fit fine. I'll check measurements when I get home later.
philnolan3d @ninjaboy837 OK Shapeways fixed the problem. It's available for sale again. Sorry about that.
philnolan3d @ninjaboy837 Yeah I don't know why it says that I'm contacting them.

Arcade Machine
philnolan3d @Alex6969 I'm sorry I don't really set the price changes, I only make a small amount from these sales. I guess you didn't see the private emails from Shapeways. Unfortunately the model was not printable so I had to make some adjustments to it which caused the price to go up slightly.
philnolan3d @Nation 777_19 99 you can see it in full 3D on Sketchfab. https://skfb.ly/yzI7 .

Morning Stretch
philnolan3d @bdnewnan Awesome thanks. Post a pic of Morning Stretch if you can please, Honestly I haven't even seen it printed. Not sure what you mean by texture source. Aren't they just a solid color? They were sculpted by hand,I didn't give them any textures.
