Designers for Hire

Connect with a 3D printing design expert to bring your idea to life.

If you have an idea and want help bringing it to life, you can work directly with a designer to create your 3D model. Designers for Hire are Shapeways community members that are experts in designing for 3D printing and have experience designing for clients.

Think of Shapeways as a dating design service, not a design chaperone. We are here to help you find the help you need, but do not in any way engage in the design process, financial agreements or communications between you and your designer.

If you are a designer and interested in being featured as a Designer for Hire, you can apply here, to use your 3D modeling and design skills to help others and make some extra money. We will review your application and contact you and if selected to also feature you and your work on our blog.
