We’re excited to announce three more amazing new material finishes for you to 3D Print in! Introducing the latest and greatest materials to the Shapeways family: Matte Black Steel, Polished Grey Steel, and Polished Nickel Steel, which are all great for jewelry, structural parts, sculptures, and anything else that you would want to 3D Print in steel!
Matte Black Steel has a clean, modern and elegant feel, that will be
sure to complement your new loft space. Polished Grey Steel gives you a more shiny, yet vintage, old school look.
Polished Nickel Steel looks just like a super polished bright stainless
steel. As one of our team members noted, “It may even look more like
Stainless Steel than Stainless Steel itself.”
These new materials belong to the same family tree as our existing Stainless Steel. The price to manufacture in these materials is $9 startup with an additional $8 per cc. (It’s the same price as our current Gold Steel). As for the design rules, they’re exactly the same as our existing steel as well.
We hope that you’re just as excited as we are about these new
additions, bringing our total number of materials that you can 3D Print
in to 39! Wow, we’re almost 40. We’re starting to feel really, really
