I wanted to provide a quick update on the project, as I’ve been AWOL for a few months…I apologize to everyone who has been patiently waiting. I promise your patience will be rewarded!
As you all probably know, the models for the Victory Cities themselves are nearly complete, I only have a few more to go!
Manufacturability is something I am looking into, however. You see, for every material choice on Shapeways, there is a different design requirement. So, for instance, Shanghai can be printed in “Frosted Ultra Detail” but not in the much less expensive “Polished White Plastic”. I would like to have a good balance between quality and affordability, and be able to offer a wide range of materials for those that want them.
So, to address this concern, I’ve ordered some sample pieces of the cities I’ve designed so far in various materials that Shapeways offers. I hope to receive this by around Christmas time, and I will post comparison pictures of the same pieces in different materials.
In the mean time, I will continue to crank out designs for cities, so that I can make them active for sale ASAP.
Thanks again to everyone who is continuing to follow this project, and hopefully we will see these beautiful cities gracing our G40 boards soon!
