    I had a work presentation at the Athens School of Fine Arts recently.
    Two of the works, T-Gyroid and Shell, are both produced by Shapeways.
    More information here.
    Check a video on YouTube and some images on Flickr.

    Wow, :blush: Using Shapeways for an actual art exhibition :D !

    I saw the shell when it came out of production. I really like it. It is very beautiful and graceful design.

    Thank you Marleen :)

    This presentation included previews works as well. I am planning to make my next one only with 3D prints. Of course, I will post here again when done, hopefully during 2010...

    Thanx again!

    Hello Oliver :)

    The wall thickness of the shell is about 1mm. Same as the T-Gyroid model.

    I know exactly what you say, as I face the same problem each time I upload a model.
    I am trying to use 1mm wall thickness, also I try to make my models' surfaces look like a "grid" or any similar grid surface, just to keep the price down.

    However, whatever I tried on a 30cm model... gets immediately expensive... :(

    Great work Oli :)

    How much did you pay for the red piece to get it printed? Where?
