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.
