It was great to have you at the DDW! You did really well, it was really fun with you at our stand. You're a great designer and a fun guy to hang out with. I hope this will contribute to your sales and your development as a 3D designer.

Virtox! Great write up! :-)

I'm really glad you had this experience. It's really a great feeling when you get see the look of amazement on people's faces, and when you know that they honestly appreciate your work. I hope you get lots of business from it!

Hey Stijn,

Thanks for taking the time to write about DDW in such detail! It was really nice to meet you and the SW crew. I personally am still in recovery mode, but very grateful for the opportunity given by Shapeways. I can't wait to see how and when the next Shapeways pop up will be.

Groetjes, Michiel

great report, thank you Stijn! I've enjoyed reading. Hope to get myself someday in some event like this.
By the way, I've noticed that both at the London's 100% Design show and at the DDW the Shapeway's stand looked very.. simple. Is it because of the organizer's harsh requirements or it's the Shapeways approach like "our products speak for themselves"?

Thanks all, for the kind words :-)

@dimitri: The minimalist stand design at DDW was because of the harsh rules.
Everything had to be build out of simple white boards (which in actuality were unfinished doors with a rough white base coating)
Tape on the ground defined where tables were allowed to be positioned within a predefined grid.
No diagonal placement and not one bit was allowed to cross the lines.
