My Shapeways shop

For a long time, I wanted to build my own 3D printer. I’m not really sure what I will print with it, but I think it will be really cool to build one from scratch.

Today I’ve done some researching and found out which type I would like to build, and than I’ve heard the price for the material (200$ a liter… WTF?!).

During my research, I’ve came across Shapeways.
Shapeways is a cool site which allows you to upload your own models and print them with verity of materials including plastic, bronze, silver, stainless steel and more.
But one of the main features they’ve got, Shapeways allows you to share your models with others so they will be able to print them. You can even create an online store using Shapeways, and name a price for each material so you will be able to earn some cash that way.

Currently I’ve made only two models, One of them is a basic (and a bit ugly) Pawn, and the other is a key chain element which I will describe in another post.

I haven’t given up on the idea of building my own printer yet. But for meanwhile, this is a cool service.
