We're so excited to share that starting today, Shapeways has a brand new look!
As we continue to grow, we realized the website had to change with us, to reflect to showcase the future of what is possible with 3D printing... There are more designers, more materials and your designs are increasingly complex and amazing!
We hope this new design makes it clearer what Shapeways is about, helps you better showcase your work and is an overall seamless experience.
As you browse around the site, here's some things we hope you notice that will help you:
Designer contact higher on the product pages - so its easier for your customers to get in touch with you.
Designer Spotlight on the homepage - a weekly feature on community members
Materials Pages updates - for easier designing.
With the new rebrand, we are also launching a clearer materials section. We've consolidated all the most important information in a standard template. We also combed through the design rules and added a few extra bits that will help you design prints that are more likely to be successfully produced. For example, we now look at walls and wires minimums separately since they have different structural demands in a model. We also added information for all materials on accuracy, clearances, and much more. Take a good look at these rules and we can't wait to see what brilliant things you make with them!
We love the new look, and we hope you will too...and obviously we're dying to know what you think, so please share any feedback here!
