Our 3D Printing prices are based on:
Material * amount of it + Designer premium + Shipping cost - Discounts
We provide over 30+ materials for designers to use for their creations, each material having its own price per cubic centimeter. That said, plastics are cheaper than metals such as bronze, steel, or silver.
Materials and prices can be found on our Materials hub.
Whether you design the most intricate and delicate pendant or a tiny cube die, the production cost is determined by the volume of material used to create the design.
Most products you can find on Shapeways have been designed and put for sale by individual designers. Sometimes they choose to add a markup for products that they put for sale in order to support their craft. Each time you buy an item that is for sale, you are supporting that individual designer. Not only that, but you have a direct line of communication with the person who made the object of desire, should you have any feedback or questions.
We ship products world wide, always from the Shapeways factory closest to you. You can read more about shipping options and prices on our Shipping Information page.
Depending on your country, customs may charge taxes/import fees when importing and delivering your product.
Every now and then we feature a sales campaign with discount codes. The best way to shop with discounted prices or hear about promotions is to join our mailing list.
Our European customers will see VAT automatically calculated into the prices they see. When placing an order, there is a detailed breakdown of VAT/taxes that have been applied.
