A quick shill for a friend [Jan. 29th, 2014|09:00 am]

Hey, people! My friend and former roommate makes super awesome 3D-printed things* and has decided to start selling some of those things in an online store. His first effort at mass-production: companion cube dice. But I am assured that at some point in the future there will be other things, plus if you want stuff custom made he's probably open to the idea if you offer him sufficient money.

His store is here: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/wayimake

* Seriously. His Christmas present to his partner were teeny tiny (the photo I saw used a penny for scale) 3D printed versions of them, which were completely recognisable as being of those two people. He's also made skulls, a model of a sphinx that's currently on display at the local museum as part of an exhibition about Egypt (the model is the one on display), and a new fender for his bike after the last one got stolen. Did I also mention that for my birthday he gave me a set of 3D printed roleplaying dice in a large 3D printed container shaped like a D20 (which I could totally roll if I didn't mind knocking over everything else on the table)? Basically, he has mad skillz, and as soon as I start having disposable income again I intend to buy a few sets of the companion cube dice to distribute to friends back at home.

Oh wow, that's awesome. I *think* I have a good reason to buy some of those... :)

Those are cool.

What printer is he using?

Good question! Apparently they're made on a Z-corp 450 or 650, since those are the only ones that print in color.
