3D Printing Torus for iPhone

Here’s video of the Printr Bot Jr printing out the Torus Played One Game achievement reward 3D print.

The difference between the printers and this sub $500 printer is pretty clear when you see the two side by side.

The reward Torus prints from Shapeways laser sintering remain the “real” rewards. I’ll be improving the models so the text is legible when using the FDM printing method.

Torus Becomes First iPhone Game to Offer 3D Printed Achievements

Thursday, December 20th, 2012
[] Oakland, California – Torus 1.1.0 is the first iPhone video game to offer 3D printed achievements! Reward Torus 3D prints are unlocked for purchase at 3000, 6000, 9000 and 12,000 points. An achievement 3D print is also unlocked for just completing your first game! When you have finished playing, the hi-score table view displays an ordering link for the score value you have reached.

The 3D print of the base hook players use in Torus to catch falling rings is a free download available now for home 3D printing. A 3D print can also be ordered for home delivery at the shop on Shapeways. Shapeways handles the production, shipment and customer service for all Torus video game achievement 3D printed models. Each Torus ring is printed with a different Shapeways material reflecting its score value and color in the game.
