IT'S HERE!! I am beyond thrilled to announce this: "Print it Anyway!" We've heard this cry from you more than once, so, here it is... Going from prototype to product often requires iteration, and in some cases, a level of experimentation beyond the safe boundaries of the Shapeways Design Guidelines. To help you explore the possibilities, we are piloting a new way for you to bring your products to life: Print It Anyway. You're no longer bound to the Shapeways Design Guidelines, only the rules of physics. So this means you can test your wires, your details, your interlocking parts & your compression fits to failing point to give you the ability to learn from your mistakes. We hope this will help you push the boundaries, and help us push ours. Read all the details in the Print It Anyway Pilot page like: - Currently available only for your own models - Materials available are Strong & Flexible Plastics, FUD and Full Color Sandstone. - We'll give you all the feedback we collect along the way, like if your model passes our checks, but then breaks in post processing -And much more! Then just click the "Print it Anyway" box at checkout...and wait to get your print! Because this is a pilot program, we're looking for feedback and ways to continuously improve to best meet your needs. So please post your feedback in this thread or drop us a line at email@example.com. Let the experimentation begin! Natalia & the WHOLE TEAM.
