Shapeways ~ 3D Printing Service & Marketplace!
A bit over a year ago Philips Lifestyle Incubator launched Shapeways, a 3D parts printing service with a worldwide creative user community and exchange marketplace. Anyone can design with CAD, upload to Shapeways, and after getting a price quote, have it printed in high quality 3D, and shipped within 1 to 3 weeks (depending on complexity and materials). Their intro video summarizes the process... The latest Shapeways announcement is printing steel! This is another great step on the pathway to Star Trek-like Replicators!
