Hi guys,

This is my first 3D printed product for shapeways, it is the 3D Photo Frame.

Have a look at the video I've done for the product.

And here are some pictures of it made:



Tell me what you guys think!

Visually and conceptually , it tickles me. To me it feels subversively youthful, kooky and light-hearted. It' skeletal form seems to emphasize it function and I like the way it playfully dances around the question of why we use frames .
It also somehow seems to have a slightly irregular/ hand drawn feel to it which I also like. (i think this might be due to the shadows it casts?)

It's nice- light and immaterial.
I wonder if you could not better have it mass-manufactured, out of painted metal rods for example. Would be way cheaper probably.
