I'm sharing today on twitter, facebook and google+. Sorry it took so long, but I'm mid development on new products for the holidays and have had my head buried in Rhino :) Better late than never?

Well, maybe we're getting into the territory of "things we shouldn't really talk about at Shapeways' house". I want to like Pinshape and have enjoyed talking with them, but I find their site opaque.

It seems to me Amazon + Shapeways (or Amazon + any other broker) has the problem that Shapeways is already a middleman in the triangle between customer, producer and designer; and now you have to find enough margin to bring a second middleman into the transaction. That seems like a meh business proposition. I would imagine that Amazon sees these deals as feelers and placeholders while it decides whether it wants to build its own triangle, in which case it would then want to crush all other brokers. So I'd say that anyone whose ultimate goal isn't to sell themselves to Amazon is right to proceed with caution in partnering with them.
