Moddler printed some diamond earrings for me — they look great

A couple weeks ago, I had just gotten some orders for black Wireframe Diamond Earrings. I was worried I wouldn't be able to fulfill the orders in time — my incoming order of black diamonds was late, because the machine my usual supplier uses to make them was down.

So I ordered some diamonds from Moddler, a small 3-D printing shop located right in San Francisco. Moddler's price per diamond is quite a bit more than my usual supplier's, but he can produce an identical product in 2 days! And I can just hop onto Muni to pick them up -– which is quite an advantage when you have a deadline.

Moddler is located in a nice brick warehousey building. John, the owner, is very friendly and helpful, and makes sure every piece is perfect — a one person business makes for great quality control.

As you can see, in the photo above, much of Moddler's business appears to be printing of avatars.

The space has great light.

Printing with Moddler was a really good experience, and I would do it again.

A new fan

This week, I was sitting in a coffee shop, assembling Wireframe Diamond Earrings for some recent Etsy orders (thanks Andrea and Jesse!). And I saw someone approach out of the corner of my eye. It was a 7 or 8 year old boy holding a skateboard, and he was looking intently at the diamond pieces. I told him how they were made, and he said "I just wanted to tell you they are really cool. I mean really cool." Made my day!
