Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO of Shapeways, gave an update at PSFK CONFERENCE 2013 on how the company has grown over the past two years, and how 3D printing will allow consumers to design and produce any product they want. Weijmarshausen began by looking at the height of complex creations we have made as humans, such as laptops and cars.
