Personalized 3D Printed Keychain

I did some revisions to the 3d printed keychain, which I previously used to make the video with the hammer.

Received the new 3d print in the mail last week, and put it on the ring with my keys. At the time of writing this, it's still intact, with only some minor scratches that you'd normally have on any plastic keychain.

Watercoloring Shapeways' White Strong & Flexible

Coloring test on Shapeways' White Strong & Flexible 3D printing material, using Winsor & Newton watercolors and Letraset ProMarkers. With watercolors it is possible to make soft gradients between colors, as well as sharp edges. Markers blend slightly, giving softer edges, and can be used to make gradients as well, similar to how they react on paper. Watercolors can be washed out of the printed object almost entirely using water, marker colors don't change at all under water.

Shapeways' Full Color 'Sandstone' Strength Test

Here's the video where I fail to break the thing in two by hand, and therefore resort to a hammer. Spoiler: the printed thing does not survive. Printed by Shapeways in the material they call Full Color Sandstone. The color is printed 1mm deep, and at 3mm thickness it's quite strong enough for normal handling.
