Sugar Skull

Overview

The 3D printed sugar skull pendant was designed with decorative details in relief.

The pendant is made of solid polished sterling silver, and was printed by Shapeways. Two versions were created in silver, with one receiving a patina to darken the grooves, and the other receiving no treatment. The final, untreated bright silver pendant also had small diamonds installed in the skull’s eye sockets.

Solar System Animation, Aliens and Androids Exhibition

Overview

The Aliens Worlds and Androids planetarium theatre film examines space exploration and technology.

The solar system segment is a three minute animation depicting the “Goldilocks Principle”. The animation opens with a long shot of the solar system, with the planets orbiting the sun. The camera gently floats around the scene, then pulls in towards Earth. Colored zones then because visible to represent the habitable zone and the areas that are too hot and too cold for life, as we know it, to exist.

3D Printed Custom Ring

Overview

This custom mens size 15-3/4 ring was designed as a fine detail for a Halloween costume based on a character from a popular TV show.

This ring is made of solid polished sterling silver, and was printed by Shapeways. The detailed lettering on the face and wings on the sides is heightened through a patina process that darkens the metal. When the surfaces in relief are polished back to bright silver, with the grooves remaining dark, the contrast really helps the design pop.

3D Printed Phone Cases for iPhone

Overview

These custom cell phone cases fit the iPhone 6 and 4.

Made of Shapeways’s strong and flexible plastic material, these cases protect the phones while adding a design flair that strategically allows the material of the phones to be revealed in cutout areas. The green case depicts the silhouette of a soccer goalie blocking the ball, which contains the phone’s Apple logo. The previous design in black depicts a figure taking a “selfie”, the flash represented by a starburst.
