We are seeing more and more requests in the Shapeways forums joining the rising number of requests we receive at Shapeways HQ from people looking for 3D modelers to help them 3D print their ideas. Sometimes they have an idea, sometimes they have a napkin sketch, sometimes they have a SketchUp model in the wrong scale that needs a lot of love, sometime they just need advice.
If you have 3D modeling skills and you would like to help others realize their ideas with 3D printing, take a look at the 3D modeler needed forum and maybe you can work out a deal that benefits you both. You can also showcase your skills in the 3D modeler for hire section of the Shapeways forums, being sure to include links to your Shapeways products and any other portfolio you may have on sites like Coroflot or Behance Network.
We are also getting more and more requests from fashion designers, artists, advertising agencies, animators, prop makers, jewelers and regular human beings that need to find someone to help them 3D model their concepts ready for 3D printing.
If you are interested in us passing on your details, please post your username and a link to your Shapeways shop in the comments of this blog post.
We will keep an eye on the post and keep you in mind when the next request comes in.
Back in May 2012, we featured designer PsychoBob's incredible project to create Atlas from Portal 2. He detailed the steps on his blog, and now, he has completed the project with a 3D printed base and circuitry to bring Atlas to life!
Read all about it on his blog and check out this video detailing the process
We have shared the most popular 3D printed products on Shapeways but we also want to have a look back at some of the most interesting stories from the Shapeways blog. It has been a big year with some amazing projects from the Shapeways community using 3D printing to make their ideas for real.
In many places it is already 2013, but as the hour draws near to Shapeways HQ in New York City, we would like to know, what should be our new year 3D printing resolution? How many microns in what material???
