Multi-material printing :-D

This combined with multiple color dyes would make Shapeways even more awesome :-D

Formula 1 RC Chasis building would be absolutely amazing.

YEAH, and giant 3D Printed surveillance quadcopters with GoPro Mounts.

But does it print printers ?

It could print the framework assembled, with moving parts and then you could add motors and electronics???
It would be a very slick RepRap...

it would be great if Shapeways can add rubber like materials that are water resistant. btw, i wonder 3D printing that F1 car costs same as the real one ;-)

Waterproof rubber, that would be nice, we will take a look.

I can't see how I would ever afford to get something printed that large.

Can it print one model in both stainless steel and nylon ?

Unfortunately commercial 3D Printers cannot yet print both plastic and metal at the same time.

The objet prints variations of acrylic resin with different properties.

This would be amazing to have. I'd love to be able to print my robot hands in ABS strength plastic with insanely small clearances. Multiple materials would be amazing too.

Support material must cost a fortune too. Yeesh imagine printing almost a metric ton of material in one go!

Please have someone give shapeways this as a Christmas present!

Shapeways has printed with Objet. But turned over to the 3D Systems machines.
Before the managment went to New York I said to them print with the rubber like material.
Also the Digital Materials are awesome imagine that Objet could print in full colour or can? (See Neri Oxman)
