Product design and functional models on Shapeways


When Shapeways started we had a lot of characters, art and fantasy
models on the site. One development that we have been seeing is that a
lot more product design and functional models on Shapeways.

Mccoyn made uploaded a model for a RepRap extruder for example.

Ashworth made a jumbo jem locket and I can’t wait to see it!

dansimonds made a stand for a HP T5000 PC

Jimmytwinkle made a case top and bottom but I’m still mystified as to what they are for.

Some people are getting a little bit ahead of us by adding suspension bridges, kajak’s and CPU towers which will probably be a little too expensive to make with 3D printing for now. Furthermore a suspension bridge or full sized kajak would probably not fit into our build envelope.
