Tell us about yourself!
Have you experimented with making the 3D piece out of different materials? I would imagine some work better than others.
Looks great. My only question: what type of paper works best?
Thanks, Jason. The cut list is clear to me now. If I manage to try the inlay, I'll put a picture up, though in all honesty, my work is not normally anything that too many people would want to emulate. (It always seems to be just tiny bit...off.) Thanks again!
What do you guys think about small pocket screws?J: I understand your point that this is made to hold jewelry or small things, not heavy box-busting items. My concern about the durability is more about if the box is put down roughly, or maybe dropped. My concern is that if a corner takes impact, the whole thing could just fall apart. What do you think?
This looks great, and it seems pretty simple to make. I do have a couple of questions:I had a bit of trouble understanding your cut list. Would you be able to clarify it just a bit?Without using any finishing nails at all, is this strong enough to hold together?I also had a thought about the top: given that the router is already out, I'm thinking I might rout out a 1/4" groove and put an inlay in, either with a differently stained piece of poplar, or with another hard wood strip.It also probably wouldn't be too hard to add dividers to the inside of the box to make compartments. Thanks for putting this up. Very inspiring!
Can you please try to describe what this feels like? (Is it rubbery? Does it yield at all, meaning does it feel softer to walk on than, say, cement or tile?) Thanks!
This is coming from someone who hasn't tried this yet, but: the patch is essentially being held in by paper and a tiny bit of mud between the edges of the wall and the edges of the patch? Is this likely to pop through if someone, say, leans on it?

I was wondering the same thing. Shapeways can print in various metals (including steel, I believe) as well as lots of different types plastic, but printing metal becomes a good deal more expensive. The different plastics they use have different qualities, some being more flexible than others, some probably being more durable. I would imagine that if the stamp isn't pretty tough, pieces of the image will start to chip off with use.Any ideas on ideal materials?
