Shapeways Crew all stars: 3D printing community events around the world

2015 has kicked off with a bang thanks to the efforts of our amazing Shapeways Crew members who have hosted 3D printing focused events all around the world! In their roles as 3D printing community leaders and ambassadors for Shapeways, Crew members have hosted workshops, exhibitions, a TedX talk, and meetups. I’m also exited to announce that Crew is nearly 60 members strong and we’ve recently welcomed Crew members from England, Germany, Australia, Finland, South Korea, as well as all over the United States!

Here’s the some of the highlights from our Crew members from the past two months:
