I know we are all busier than a one legged man at a butt kickin' contest, but I got my next Shapeways delivery today (man they ship fast!) and wanted to share!
This is the first time I've gotten an order in a sintershell. That's what Shapeways does for you when you have a product with lots of little parts. It's a mesh of sorts, printed around the items so they won't get lost in production. In my case, it was the Brunch Set.
It's a tough bugger to open up - it's made of the same material that your items are getting printed in. In my case, White, Strong & Flexible I opened mine up with small wire cutters. My mind is still processing ideas for what I can do to recycle this sintershell. Basket? Dish rack?Shower caddy? Hmmm...
Here are all of the little wonders safely out of their shell! Square lunch plates, salad plates cappuccino cups, and vase (short enough so that the flowers don't block the guests from seeing each other at the table).
The rest of the bathroom tile came (changed design plans after I ordered and needed more) as well as the subway tile back and side splashes for the kitchen! Tomorrow is all about family, Friday I'll need to get some job work stuff done, but Saturday and Sunday ARE MINE! Alki Point is going to start becoming, my friends! Yippee!!!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone! And Happy Black Friday shopping for those brave adventurers willing to go out to the stores. Any trinkets I buy will be done wirelessly and safely behind my front door!
