    Hello I am new to shapeways and I was wondering is it possible to download models and print then your self? or is the only way of getting your hands on a cool model is to buy it?

    It is only possible if the owner of the model has the file available for download.

    Home based DIY printers have many limitations and the bulk of the designs on Shapeways are here for the simple reason they require commercial grade printers.

    When you end up with a x3d file, you can convert it to a stl file using software like Netfabb or Blender.

    You can download a model previously uploaded to your account from the "Tools" link on the model page. The resulting pop-up menu has a download option.
