Just received my first order of 3D printed gold plated brass from Shapeways! I love the quality and resolution.
The models are first printed in wax and the wax is replaced with brass using the lost wax process; it is then polished, nickel plated and gold plated.

Here’s some pics of some of my 3D-printed chainmail bracelets, printed by Shapeways.
There are two sizes of my European 6-in-1 Chainmail bracelet, and my Half-Persian 4-in-1 Chainmail bracelet.

Here’s a 3D printed bracelet that I designed for my daughter, Alexa. The bracelet has an easy-open side-release latch. It was printed by Shapeways.

Had a wonderful time hosting the Chicago Shapeways Meetup on February 28th. What a great turnout! Thanks to Eitan Cher, Dan Foley and Sean Kienzle for sharing your 3D samples, and to everyone for sharing your stories and experiences in the realm of 3D printing.
And special thanks to Queue Marketing for letting us use your space!

An old one from May, 2011…
Here’s my 3D printed hand-crank fan, printed by Shapeways.com. Successful SLS (selective laser sintered) test print of a 3D model with all pieces printed in position and no post assembly. The double sets of gears work very smoothly, although the fan itself is expensive and woefully inefficient.
View the movie on YouTube to see the fan in “action.”
