    Hi what brings me to shapeways,umm this site is just freaking awsome i never knew that anything like this could be done. I'm from Ohio and and my favorite hobby is wrenching and riding motorcycles. I also like to fabricate anything that i can for them myself , I like the old school chopper or bobber look. I have a few ideas or designs that i would like to make that i know other people would really like. I was looking into casting but my neighbor who is a computer guru told me about this site and for what i want to do i think would be so much easier. I have no experience in any of this and been looking at some of the software but don't know which is the best to use. I would like to find one that I can use a photo of my project and convert it to 3d to make it available for printing. So if anyone can help it would be great,and by the way did i mention that this is some of the coolest stuff i've seen thank you. :D
