Many of you already know Shapeways is a Dutch company (with a factory in Eindhoven), so imagine our delight when we realized Ittyblox is working on a new complete Amsterdam set. The collection of Ittyblox cities is constantly growing, but we’re especially excited to see one so close to home!

Just like with the Flatiron Building, a Kickstarter was created to help fund these designs. While the campaign has already surpassed its goal (!), it’s still worth checking out to see how you can get your hands on this new collection before the rest of the world.

We’ve talked a lot about using crowdfunding for your 3D printing projects, and this is a great example of how they can be successful. It’s not just about funding the final design, they can also help with prototyping, photographing and promotion. It’s important for designers and shop owners to try new things and continue to elevate their business – crowdfunding is one way to help get you there.

We’re excited to get our hands on this new Amsterdam set. In the meantime, what cities or buildings would you love to see 3D printed?
