Danny from Australia here, first post on the forum, I'm not much of a forum person however when I like a place I'll try and join in and help when and where I can.
Long time Designer/3d modeller, short time Shapy, known about and experienced 3d printing back in the late 80's when they only had Stereolithography 3d printing to produce prototypes for the manufacturing industries costing a few thousand dollars for a single prototype, it's great to see it evolve using different methods, like FDM, SLS and even paper, and at an affordable price too, not only to get things printed but to actually own your own desktop 3d printer is awesome.
So far it's been a great experience here on Shapeways, great site BTW, some of the stuff that people have been producing is amazing and inspirational. Just opened my first online shop http://www.shapeways.com/shops/saurus it's nerving and exciting at the same time. At first I uploaded my models for personal printing projects then seeing all the other shops I thought, what the heck there's no harm in offering my work to the public, if someone purchases one of my pieces great! if not, I'm still happy to be here and do what I enjoy doing, designing and modelling.
