The first day of summer is June 21st. Finish up your spring cleaning, and get ready for some summer fun!
What makes summer fun even more fun? 3D printed accessories that make your time outside more enjoyable! So what would make your summer activities more enjoyable? Running, sun bathing, swimming, biking, even spectating some sports.
Shapeways is proud to annouce that we are sponsoring a residency program jointly hosted by Eyebeam and Public Knowledge.
The purpose of the Public Knowledge/Eyebeam Artist Residency is to make policy issues more engaging by creating a new work that raises awareness of an issue with the wider public, and compels people to investigate the issue further.
Did you have a chance to look at our new Elasto Plastic yet? We launched it last week and we're already seeing some pretty amazing things coming out of our printers (daily routine: arrive at the office, grab some coffee, walk past the printers to see what's going on, have mind blown).
What will you use it for? This weekend I challenge you to come up with some rad new applications for flexible 3D printed objects.
To up the ante, you can win a $50 printing voucher this week!
We started something new last week: Maker Materials, starting with the new Elasto Plastic. These Maker Materials give us a better opportunity to learn from you! To a regular person Elasto Plastic may look dull and useless, but to our creative community, the possibilites are endless.
You probably don't have your own Elasto yet, but we want to know your favorite post production techniques on any material. Share your tips for a chance to win a $25 voucher. Head to the forums for more details... This weeks contest has been extended to EOD Wednesday! (Midnight US Eastern Standard time)
