Testimonials

Evan Gant, Industrial designerConsumer 3D Printing
I think Shapeways is a very customer friendly service, easy to understand the costs and build limitations. The best part for me is the ease of which I can turn ideas around into something I can sell, which I can use to fund my next project.
Ola Shekhtman, Owner and Designer of Cityscape RingsConsumer 3D Printing
It would probably take me about 100 years to produce 1,000 of my rings by hand. It only takes Shapeways 2 to 3 weeks to create and ship the same amount.
