Hi all -- My first prints arrived. I'm trying to get a feel for what's possible as I work on my own designs (read: draw lots of flowing biological designs on paper, and then make shipping crates of various sizes in Blender). As I'm a biologist, I thought it would be cool to display Bathsheba's Bioform piece on my desk in an attempt to ensnare colleagues into either a discussion of 3D printing or, better yet, misguided attempts to name the species that owned this little shell/skeleton. I had Bioform printed in limestone look strong & flexible (LLSF?). Here are some photos from my crappy built-in camera (sorry, it's all I've got for the moment). The piece is everything I hoped for, a near-perfect print of a sweet little sculpture that is very satisfying to handle and stare at from any direction. I like positioning it "upside down" (at least relative to the pictures in Bathsheba's shop), which gives the piece a rather predatory aspect. If I printed this piece again, I'd print it in WSF, and perhaps tea-stain it, as the limestone color doesn't quite match the bony shape. The pictures above are sepia-toned; here's a color shot. Props to Bathsheba for a lovely design, and to Shapeways for artistry that covers its own tracks.
