Description:I'm hoping this is a simple project. I have designed a headband (a variation of the coil soccer headband worn by the likes of David Beckham). This one is for the ladies. The coil (unlike the soccer headband) becomes larger at the crown of the head. I will produce it through 3D printing for myself and friends - so far this is just a personal project. Specs are in the attached jpg.
Wants:I want a smooth transition from the tight coils at the ends to the top of band (crown). The band will be made in metal and needs to be a smooth spiral coil, not angular in any place. I will need a stl file for production. Specs are in the attached jpg.

#2 revision A to my previous entry by Jeremy Benjamin
Here's my 2nd pass at it. It's not perfect, but I finessed the model to be smoother in those transition points than my previous version. The challenge is, I'm using a 3D mirroring function to keep it symmetrical, but when I mirror the object about the mid-plane, then the coil is going the wrong direction, so I get some wonky geometry where I try and bridge that gap. Still brainstorming a way to do this. Hopefully this 2nd try is a step in the right direction...

Ring design with branches and bramble
We are looking for a ring that will eventually be printed in sterling, featuring bare branches. Ring band needs to resemble a branch (or branches), and the top of the ring needs branches wrapping about it. Inside this ring we'll be adding an element later, so we need a pocket underneath the branches that will fit an item that is approx 5mmx20mm. The design sketch shows a bit of a lip to the pocket from the side view, this will help keep the item in place. Once the design is approved, we'll need it in US sizes 5-13.
3D Printing Design | Meet the minimum thinkness on two small parts of my 3D STL file for Shapeways!
I need someone to make a certain part of my 3D anchor stl file a little thicker. Nothing complicated at all! The guy that was working on this file is really swamped with work and cannot complete this edit. This job should literally take less than 30 minutes if you know what you are doing. On the attached picture it shows that I need to make specific parts of the anchor a little thicker to meet the minimum supported wire thickness of .8mm. Here's what the email I recieved from shapeways said: "Here is why we cannot print your model: The minimum thickness for free/supporting wires > 1.0mm and supported wires > 0.8mm for this material. Please thicken the wires of the model." I have specified what needs to be done on the picture attached. Please message me if you need clarification. If you know what you are doing and have worked with stl. files and understand the thickness minimum that shapeways requires for 3d printing then this should be a no-brainer.
