3D Printing Enters the Bronze Age at Shapeways

Just over 5000 years ago man entered the Bronze Age, now you too can have access to the material that mankind used to build the tools that transformed civilization into what it is today. 

Bronze 3D Print You Demons on Shapeways

The 3D printed Bronze at Shapeways is a high-detail metal with a deep red color similar to rose gold. It has a subtle marbling effect, and the silvery highlights give each piece their own unique character. 

As with our 3D printed Brass, this new material will be available at Shapeways as Raw Bronze and Polished Bronze with the exact same design rules as Brass, so items you have designed for one material, will be printable in the other.

Raw Bronze has a rustic matte look with some rough surfaces. It is great for antique-looking objects, vintage and steampunk jewelry, functional parts, and more. Coloration may vary across a single object, and as with all Bronze it may tarnish over time, in a cool way.
