Shapeways

I was unaware of the existance of Shapeways - where you send in your 3D designs and they print them in stainless steel. Very cool. Discovered via BoingBoing where a person designed and printed a replacement part for a baby stroller and got it printed for < $20, instead of the $250 the company wanted for a repair.

This makes a home 3D printer even more interesting, as a device for prototyping objects before having them printed in stainless steel.

  • Todd Johnson - Bathsheba Grossman does her less expensive sculptures though Shapeways. Pretty neat service.
