In a series of articles on the new ‘handmade’, TechCrunch features an interview with community member Maaike van der Horn. Maaike talks about her training as a traditional goldsmith and how 3D printing now allows her to make designs she couldn’t otherwise.
Our favorite quote:
“Van der Horn heaps praise on Shapeways, saying that the site made it so easy for her to learn and the prices for materials and printing costs were affordable. Although her initial efforts were a bit rocky – her first printed object was a 2D item – she’s now able to produce interesting, unique and complex shapes.”
Aww, thanks Maaike!
