Shapeways Pilots

Welcome to Pilots. These programs are experiments that give us a chance to test things out together. They are not yet ready to become official offerings, but enable us to focus on developing the best experience for our entire community. Pilot features might not work the way you expect and pilot materials may not 3D print consistently. But the more feedback you give, the better equipped we are to figure out what will enable you to create better, and what needs a little more development.
Explore below and sign up for the Pilots we're currently running.
