I just discovered Shapeways yesterday as I was browsing through some random gadget blog: http://craziestgadgets.com/2010/09/29/steve-jobs-head-in-pix el-art-3d-on-your-desk/ I remember when Blizzard started offering this service to print out your own World of Warcraft character ( I was tempted but it was too expensive for my wallet), but never before had I seen a service that let's you print out your own 3D models. Revolutionary! I work as a game artist, mostly creating 2D game art, but on occasion I get the chance to make some low poly 3d models for some of our games as well. http://www.andrea.net/art/frame_sub_01.html However I am quite the newbie still where 3D modelling (let alone animating) is concerned. So I'm not sure if I'd be skilled enough to create something to be printed, but I am definitely going to try it (when I can afford to order something). I've been using hours, browsing through the "It arrived!" forum and have been absolutely amazed by what y'all have been creating. Very cool stuff! I'm practically trembling with excitement thinking about all of the things I could make. Looking forward to learning more about this, seeing what you folks make and trying out my very first object as well!
