Shapeways: 3D Printing Gets Easier
Dan Gould

3D printing has taken a step towards becoming a consumer level service with the advent of Shapeways web to print site. The Netherlands based company has recently launched a beta version of their easy to use 3D printing operation. Just upload a 3D CAD file, place your order, and in ten days your virtual object will become a reality. Shapeways offers three different types of plastics and metal is on the way. Costs are low, ranging on averege between $50 and $150. The printers are capable of fine detail and the only limitation is size. The machine’s printing area is about the size of a microwave.
