Some other "Shapeways" orders displayed in this forum inspired me to design some of my own stuff. This Mount Tray was designed primarily to give me an idea of the quality from shapeway's printers and…Continue

Is there a easy way to find a club that uses 3 D printing or some where i can learn how to do 3 D printing ? I live in Ohio .Continue
Just finished the build of my 3d Printer. LETS SEE WHAT WE CAN DO!!!!!
My Thingiverse.com Parts page.
I have some printable RC models here, http://www.thingiverse.com/scooter46290/designs/page:1
I'll take a wild guess that the base is too thin and maybe the spindly legs are too thin.
They dont like the trailing edge of an airfoil as you probably already know.
You can get a refund for the rejected model. They've change their software a few months ago to be more strict. I was printed things before the change that are now "unprintable". I think the models that are on the edge of acceptable, will cause them to reject a whole print batch if it fails, and cost them more money than it's worth.
This one for example is now unprintable.
It certainly isnt "just hit a button". Shapeways accepted my model and then rejected it after they got my money. The large size of the model had thicker wall requirements. To meet the requirement wrecks the model and the cost skyrockets.
El7ias, what are your requirements? Size? Resolution? Plastic? By professional 3D printer are you talking about a printing house such as shapeways or an actual printer from one of the more traditional 3D printer vendors?
Keep in mind that a 3D printer is great for one-offs and prototyping, not so good for production. Nor is it "just hit a button", but it's getting easier all the time.
Hi everyone, I have been designing body kits for all kinds of multi rotor system and have gotten requests for custom frames as well. I am on a quest to find a professional 3D printer I could move my work through. All advice very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Good try, sorry for the rat's nest.
No luck. I think the problem is that first its profile is too thin, nothing much to stick to the platform, and the overhang doesn't help it either.
