How did you handle the issues with edges for the Void Floppy?

It looks like the edges aren't square.

The holes in the pieces don't need to be so big unless you want to store stuff inside the puzzles :lol: Just make them only .1mm thick and they will fuse shut when printed but give you the hollow price :D

They don't charge you for the powder that you're trapping inside when the hole fuses that way, which is the point of the different price.

for some odd reason I didnt read the last part of Puzzlemaster's message. I am sure tho that he didnt mean it like that. because that would indeed be abusing.

a 1mm hole should be sufficient, no?

I'm sure that would. a 1/10 mm hole wouldn't, though.

A 1mm hole is insufficient for powder removal.

Using 0.1mm holes is perfectly acceptable. The powder is very inexpensive compared to the other factors in the printing process, not to mention they have to discard half of it anyway.

I've noticed though that parts with trapped powder don't dye as nicely as hollow parts.

They obviously don't accept shelled parts for a reason.

Shapeways will TELL you to make a small hole if you want the part to be hollow, even if the hole is to small to remove the powder.

If Shapeways directly tells me I'm wrong, I will stop doing it instantly :D

Before drawing conclusions on what cheats the system and what not, perhaps it would be a good idea to read up on the subject a bit:
Tip: The hole doesn't actually need to be large enough so that we can extract the excess material.

Still, I think it's a good idea to avoid trapping powder but it definitely is an acceptable practise.

Now that's settled, let's continue on topic complimenting Murilio with his excellent puzzles.

The reason for this is that their new software reads a hollow object as solid unless there's a hold. It fixes the problem of overlapping solid objects being twice the price, but also changes that.
They are fine with it, I seem to remember that they said somewhere that it actually saves them work when you trap the powder, because they don't have to remove it by hand.

I stand corrected.
