Well I'm new to this website and I'm glad to know that designers can sell their ideas here through 3D printing which is great.
I'm interested in opening up a shop here to sell some of my ideas. But I'm curious that how can I open up two/multiple shops by different names. The reason for this is that I have some ideas/models which fall under different categories and it would be great if I have a theme based name for the shop.
For example some of the models are like antiques/decorative art and some are modern art pieces, gadgets, accessories etc. Therefore I was wondering if I could open up multiple theme based shops.
Please suggest what are the possibilities.
I'm wondering if Shapeways has a plan of decentralizing the production at some point. Sort of like franchising the "Shapeways" brand and some of the business processes to other companies around the country or perhaps simply opening other, smaller, operations around the country, fully owned by Shapeways. It seems like 3D printing could be made more approachable (and perhaps more affordable?) by using more than one, large as it is, plant in the US.
