    Mar 30, 2014, 10:33 PM - han solo in carbonite greeblies Now available, and panels coming #1

    Hi, TDH. Just a heads up. I just made this posting over at therpf. I'll check here too, but I'm there way more often:


    Greeblies! Who needs? They're now available!
    Greeblies are now available:

    Nipples and small cyl for zenix hic greeblies by baltimore on Shapeways nipples $13.00
    zenix hic greeblies no nipples by baltimore on Shapeways rest of the greeblies $155.50

    photos: https://plus.google.com/photos/+Todd...Ke68L2x04ez7AE


    limited set: all parts but no mesh grill, no nipples, no small cylinder, and no u-clips: http://shpws.me/rUYF $117



    sculpting video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMzJedDL0Os#t=1031

    Full Parts List
    The full pack will include:
    27 smaller nipples (2 extra)
    11 larger nipples (2 extra)
    3 T pieces
    2 handles
    29 rings
    1 capped ring
    1 slightly larger ring
    1 small cylinder
    1 half sphere
    1 small flat disc
    6 large flat discs with cutout
    1 shorter knurled knob
    1 taller knurled knob
    4 small tubes (I only saw three but I think there was a 4th)
    1 square side greeblie
    1 spring screw for side greeblie
    1 mesh screen grill
    1 tall knob
    1 flat knob
    1 dial box
    9 U-clips with rounded flathead screw
    6 U clips with thickened flat phillips screw
    5 U-clips with thickened flat flathead screw

    full pack includes all above. $168.50 plus shipping

    You can see me modeling every piece (except for the dial box piece) here in this video. It's 115 pieces in total, including a few extra pieces. I noticed that there are actually two styles of nipple pieces. The U-clips also have three different kinds of screws. The type of screw head as well as screw rotational orientation is also built in to each part! All the other pieces were also modeled from the reference photos as high of detail as I could get. Check the vid:






    full set of pictures here: https://plus.google.com/photos/10116...48138645617201

    The best part about this is that they'll always be available since I'm 3D printing them, and wont have to fuss with casting. The first set is on order in white plastic and will be here soon. No trimming or sanding will be required, but they will need to be painted once you get them. I'm gauging interest at offering them for $160.

    But wait, there's more!

    I purchased an original volvo dashboard instrument panel from Phillip of Rebelscum.com just after the initial discovery announcement. Crashmann (of MEPD.net sandtrooper backpack fame) has made an awesome mold of it. His casting method and mold making skills are top notch. Check out the first few pulls from the mold, perfect detail and bubble free:







    I plan on offering these panels as well, gauging interest at $38 each or $280 for a set of 8, and the full greeblies set for $168.5

    So, who's interested?

    Hi zenix. I have most of the greeblies but need the short knob, knurled knobs, and tall knob. Would you sell these individually?

    Great!
    It was about time that somebody showed up offering these! People who have supplied them before are not doing it anymore....
    Since I was not able to find them I have been building some pieces already, I would like to get most parts, but not all, if its possible. Are you planning to give prices for individual parts? No need for the handles, for example
    A question...donīt you need three T pieces for the hero panel?

    Good eye Juan. You're right- the hero panel has three T pieces.

    Hi Zenix
    I am very interested in buying the greeblies and having them sent to Spain, but the currency conversion on that site is TERRIBLE!!! Any other options?

    Shapeways was rejecting some of the orders. I split the file into two parts, and all of the small parts which were getting rejected before are now in their own file, and will now work. This means you have to add two items to your cart, but no big deal. If you got rejected, just order these two.

    Nipples and small cyl for zenix hic greeblies by baltimore on Shapeways nipples
    zenix hic greeblies no nipples by baltimore on Shapeways rest of the greeblies

    The price total should be the same as advertised before, so you can use the coupon code shapeways sent you in the reject email and it'll cover the total cost. Sorry for the hassle,

    Maybe you can find someone elsewhere who can order them for you and mail them to you.

    I did order it anyway....I have been waiting for these for some time and I do not want to wait any longer. After checking it again I realized that the problem is not the currency conversion rate, it is that they include VAT when shipping to SPAIN. I just hope I do not have to pay VAT again when going through customs.

    As far as I understand, that site builds the parts out of your models and send them right? If it is that way, may be you could find a site like that that sends from Europe or other parts of the world? That would be very interesting for others....

    they have hq in nyc and eindhoven, so it's likely that your parts will be coming from the netherlands.

    Well, that would make sense. If the ship from Europe, there will be no customs!
    Otherwise I would not understand why they charge VAT.

    Hey Zenix!
    It was great meeting you at the 501st dinner on Saturday. I am definitely interested in the complete greebly kit, I may need a week or two to replenish my hobby fund though since I came home to find out I won the ebay auction for MywickedArmors Darth Malgus and I had to pay that right away.
