Hello there,
I'm looking for an armitage handwheel cap and plastic colored ring, I don't mind any of both colors :)
I'm interested by a complete one as well but they are probably out of my price range currently seeing the auctions on ebay :cry
thanks a lot

I designed several cap, hot and cold versions, and put on sale on shapeways, they couldn't make it, because of too fine details so I ordered it on i materialize, and it seems i materialize was able to make it.
I ordered one, waiting to get it, as it will be ok, I will create a product on my i materialize shop and everyone will be able to order it.

Hey parfaite lumiere.
thanks and I'll wait for your pictures but what material did you print them with? I have a big experience with 3D printing and cannot imagine this working :$
but I'm looking forward to see your results :)

ok, looking forward to see the result. imaterialize brass often has a bit of a molten look in some places. I think they heat the wax a little bit to get rid of the printing lines but this softens a bit the models. I usually buy raw brass model that I rework myself and don't know how a finished chromed model will look like.
I hope for the best for you :)

I did same, for me , I buy raw stuff, raw brass or silver, but as they are offering chrome plating option and as sometimes original as caps are not so sharp, I hope it will be ok.

thanks roman, I know, and you already sold me a partial real one last year but I'm not happy with its condition. ;)
