Product Description

This full color part is intended to be used with standard commercially available 7mm ornament kits. It is preshaped and hollow. 0.25 inches of internal tubing are included at each end of the ornament to allow adhesive attachment to an internal brass tube or other form of post or rod passing through the ornament. I will offer this in all materials that pass the Shapeways online design rule checker since the full color plastic process is not yet available to everyone. Note that the only present color option for this model is using the full color sandstone material option.

Words of warning: Using sandstone material with ornament kits can result in cracked ornaments. Cracking can occur during the step when the hardware end pieces are pressed into the brass tube passing through the center of the ornament. Some ways to reduce the chances of cracking are 1) to use no adhesive or a flexible adhesive between the brass tube and the ornament body and 2) to not compress the ornament body during the press fit operation. Careful assembly and allowing a slight movement of the ornament body within the assembled hardware will help to reduce the chance of cracking or breakage.

Note that this part is sized for the Woodcraft and Woodturners Catalog (Craft Supplies USA) kits which require an approximately 1.4 inch long blank. The Penn State Industries kits contain longer brass tubes which means you would need to trim the tubes or add additional materials to fill the empty space. This design has no central core so it would be difficult to glue it to the central brass tube or polish it on a lathe. The idea behind this ornament is that the decorative printed part can be held in place by the end finials when they are pressed into the brass tube. A final light coating with a clear spray lacquer before attaching the finials would provide a nice protective finish if desired.
