    Welcome! What book did you read about Shapeways in?

    If there's not already a meetup near you, start one up, and if you get a bunch of people to come let us know so we can send goodies.

    Sketchup will do! try it. But if you have the $$$, there are plenty of options. This week in the meetup, met a lot of people and learnt about those different software options.

    I'm starting with Sketchup right now.

    Hope to see your work soon!
