When you say "partnered with" what exactly does that mean? Is this place doing anything beyond the normal channels of selling or manufacturing of items through Shapeways?

Thanks for your question! Bow and Drape aren't selling these through Shapeways but are using Shapeways as their main manufacturing service. In this case, this partnership speaks to co-marketing efforts as well as design support throughout the process. Happy to elaborate if you have more questions!

I see. So, they're banking on the novelty of 3D printing. Yeah, there is a niche market there still I think. What would have been even better though would have been to offer personalized customization along with it. After all, if you're going to be 3D printing you might as well add customization too. Even something as simple as the buyers initials would be great!

Not knocking it though, this a great step into getting more involved with retail. I can't wait to see what's going to happen next! :-D

Sorry, not interested. Now, if you could design buckles and attach them to leather belts, that would be cool!
