Wow, great! How thick are the the thinnest wires?

Here are 3 more successful metal fractal prints printed at Shapeways.
Diameter is 5 cm. I was trying to make thin parts above 1.5 mm.
Printing folks seems to be able to deal with this.

Significant info. Metal prints technology requires post processing - infiltration of hot steel
model with molten bronze. This step requires attachment of spout/wire of 3mm in diameter,
which is grinded off by technician after the infiltration.
This means, that the piece better to have some small flat spot conveniently located
somewhere outside.
For fractal pieces this is especially important because they tend to have very wild surface.

Thanks Vladimir for the tips and the photos! Seems like about 3/4 of my models passed the last test before printing, I can't wait to hold them in my hands!

On a side note, just found out that some folks created a tool to convert mp3s into 3D printed 33rpm records, with 16 micron z axis resolution, can you believe this? http://www.amandaghassaei.com/3D_printed_record.html

In Meshlab, has anyone tried the Poisson surface reconstruction as opposed to Laplacian smooting? Any feedback?

Hi bib,

A 3D Printing thread appeared at the Daz3D forums, so I stole one of your pictures and posted it there with a link to this thread!

Really should have asked first, but didn't.   police cop police

If that's a problem, let me know and I'll delete the image!

Hi!
Nice 3d print models!
 
Try to use reduto (http://psychocore.com/index2.html) from psychocore.com for smoothing, repairing and polygon reductions, it work fine for me. I use reduto without mudbox, as standalone software. Hier is help page (http://psychocore.com/help.html).

This is an example of my models -




I make 3-5 model - same fractal from different angles and merge all models in one. It turns surface smooth. Peculiar "3D anti-aliasing"  cheesy
best regards.

Thanks slon_ru for the link. Does Reducto also handle the isosurface extraction (that we do typically in Fiji to produce an OBJ file from a voxel stack) or only mesh cleaning and repairing?

Woooo, some more models received, in stainless steel (gold plated and bronze plated) and Frosted detail plastic. I'll post more decent photos when I have more time.
