Ask Your 3D Printing Questions on Fridays at 5 with Shapeways Engineers

Fridays at 5 is our regular Google hangout where you get to ask Shapeways Engineers your questions about 3D Printing with Shapeways.  Last week we talked about the upcoming launch of our new elasto material, how we 3D print our high detail acrylic and we set fire to a couple of Nylon and Full Color 3D prints to prove they are not suitable to put into a kiln.

Join us again this Friday to ask your questions or enter them in the comments of the blog so we can be sure to address them first.  We are beginning to record these sessions so that we have an archive of answers to your 3D printing questions, thanks to Todd Blatt for the screen capture and ‘interesting’ questions.

      Google Plus is Google’s online social media platform where you can interact with others and find people of similar interests talking about interesting topics. A Google Hangout is a multi-person live video chat. On Fridays, Shapeways members and members of the public will join up, chat with each other and ask questions of the Shapeways engineers and staff. When you do a Google hangout, the video gets recorded automatically and saved to your youtube account, where you can publish it if you wish. The Shapeways Youtube account, where you can view all of Shapeways’s public videos, can be found here:

      How has a government regulation, like the Clean Water Act, affected the (economic) sustainability of 3-d printing ?

      Any scholar sources, or Government websites related to this will be awesome.
