  7. Hi Andrew, MDPI published a very interesting article about this topic last year: Corrosion Behavior of AlSi10Mg Alloy Produced by Additive Manufacturing (AM) vs. Its Counterpart Gravity Cast Alloy You can read the article here: http://www.mdpi.com/2075-4701/6/7/148/pdf I think this should answer your question. Best regards, Franky
  8. Hi Pablo, Colleen Jordan from WEARABLE PLANTER wrote a really nice article about this a few years ago. You might want to take a look at it: http://www.wearableplanter.com/blog/2014/6/4/how-to-dye-your-3d-prints Best regards, Franky
  9. If you only upload the OBJ file, it will not contain any color info. You need to upload an archive file (like ZIP or RAR) that contains the OBJ, MTL and image file (PNG, JPG or GIF). The MTL (Material Library) file is needed to refer to the image file. Open it in Notepad and you'll see it's basically just a text file.
  10. Yes, if you upload a .PLY file to our 3D print lab and select Multicolor as a material, you can see the color and textures of your 3D model.
  11. Wow!
  12. Great print! Always nice to know the background about a design.
  13. Hi Karel, When you select Customer Pick Up during checkout, the following text appears: "If you're in the neighborhood, Customer Pick Up (Mo-Fr 9am-5pm) is a great way to save time and money for delivery." Hope this helps. Best regards, Franky
  14. Very hypnotizing. Great stuff as always!
  15. In June of this year, Materialise and Golden Laser signed a collaboration agreement which will see the i.materialise platform powering Golden Laser’s upcoming 3D printing service in China. The agreement opens the i.materialise platform to China’s Golden Laser, a global manufacturer of laser cutting, engraving and marking systems. This collaboration will make sure that even more people will have access to easy 3D printing solutions and will help in expanding the reach of this amazing technology into traditional manufacturing markets. While Golden Laser’s upcoming 3D printing service in China, 3DEazer, will run on the i.materialise platform, 3D printing will take place at Golden Laser’s Additive Manufacturing Center Service Bureau in Wuhan, China, bringing production closer to users in the region. We are very excited about this partnership enabling us to better serve our Chinese customers through a physical presence in mainland China. The Chinese consumer 3D printing market is still relatively young but it offers great potential due to its extraordinary market size and growth. Through this trusted partnership, we provide 3D Eazer with our proprietary software tools as the engine fueling their 3D printing platform. We will ensure that 3D Eazer meets the i.materialise quality standard you are used to, by extensively training 3D Eazer personnel on the different materials and finishes. Additionally, we have sent out a mailing to all shop owners to inform them about the opportunity to sell their designs in the Chinese market. Please note that your shop items currently on i.materialise.com are not automatically transferred to 3D Eazer. You will need to take action to be able to sell your items to Chinese customers. In case you're interested in doing so, please send an email to info@3deazer.com. The 3D Eazer staff will guide you through the process of setting up an account and opening the gateway to China! If you have any questions about this, please post them here.
