    Here's a link for my Shapeways store. BlackLion Customs. I've uploaded a few Models I've been working on please give me feed back on each of em.
    All of my models are still in prototype phase once I'm done fixing the errors in the models they will become available on the Shapeway store.
    Thank you.

    I know I've seen others kit-bash it to get the proper results but I have that opinion try not to modify a transformer too much. I'm designing these parts with one thing as a priority. Less Scratch Building. Iv seen fans build a knee joint for Heavytread out of scraps. An they don't look good in vehicle mode. Iv see fans replace the ball-joint pins to to give better radius. What I wont is to make each part useful in all modes. I hope I'm not over reaching my self but its the goal I've set myself.
    Well Peace, Love, Harmony and Pocky. ( I Know I'm a geek. Ill admit it.)

    Thank you again.

    A new item is up om my Shapeways store I hope you like it.

    Any. That's why I did it this way so that any one can put any head on it. I do plan to make a pin and ball for it. I'm curious on what the other shapeways guys do on heads so that they can fit this model.
    Thank you.
    I Think I should mention that these are just the beta's. I plan on giving each piece detail that fits the figure.

    Radicons is for tangible things. This belongs in fanart. When you get your parts you can open a new thread in Radicons, but this thread will be moved. I'm just letting you know what will happen and why.

    Its a better Knee joint. All you do is add the original connector from one of the other limbs.

    Yep. I hope it works well as a upgrade. In stead of modding the figure.

    The wrist parts are for the duststorm mold.http://www.transformers-universe.com/content/images/ToyDB_Pics/181.jpg

    Heads up. I'm about to get my tangible parts on the 23rd. I will do videos and pictures of each peace even if they fail. Good or Bad I will prevail.

    Ill do the appropriate editing to get these up for thews whom are interested.
    I also hope this info will help other Shapes from making the same mistake.
    Thank you.

    Useful tutorial on fixing STL's: http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/fixing-non-manifold-models.

    The minimum wall thickness for our different materials are:

    White Strong & Flexible = 0.7 mm But we advise you to use at least 1 or 2 mm, depending on the size of the area.
    White, Transparent & Black detail = 1 mm
    Cream Robust = 1 mm
    Stainless Steel = 3 mm
    Full Color Sandstone = 3 mm
    Milky White Matte Glass = 3 mm
    Alumide = 1.5 mm
    Silver = 0.6 mm
    Frosted Detail = 0.5 mm
    Frosted Ultra Detail = 0.3 mm
    Glazed Ceramics = 3 mm

    Peace.

    Any chance you can mirror the images on TFW instead? Nothing from FB is visable when I click the links: "Content not available."

    Also all your items on the Shapeways page are listed as "Not for sale." Not sure if it's intended while you work out kinks or not...

    I like the Lambo parts. I'm assuming the ankle extenders are to make them be able to stand with their lower legs twisted around like Punch/Counterpunch? What exactly does the neck piece do and how does it improve upon the existing neck?
