Or a very fine rotary saw mounted on a Dremel. Works every time.

The products from shapeway, though they can be outstanding, are very delicate and brittle. Don't use much pressure to remove from their "tree" or disaster awaits. Use saw or multiple very delicate swipes from a sharp hobby knife.

Use a micro razor saw.


Excellent tool.

They look nice and are in neat rows, mounted five to a square bracket. Trouble is, I'm scared to try cutting them apart!
