    Wow... I think that's their biggest one yet. I hope their intentions are spreading the technology, not to make more profit...

    Shapeways please don't be bought by 3D Systems?

    Well...lets think about it...on September 2010 shapeways managed to raise $5 million from investors - last month the same investors poured another $5.1 million for expansion to build a manufacturing facility and also there is that $1.2 million loan from NYC Investment Fund...

    A. Shapeways founding partners must have been diluted by the above.. plus now there are more partners to deal with..

    B. There are still big plans ahead to "solidify" the big potential..

    Conclusion - not likely to be bought. we're safe. ;)
