Want to try 3D design? Now you can

Shapeways.com bridges gap between 3D printing and the everyday consumer

(Continued)

So before 3D printing becomes mainstream and a normal part of our society, using Shapeways is a good way to start tinkering around with the overall concept.

Additionally, the site does a decent job of creating a bridge between the idea of design and the average consumer who normally might not give 3D printing a try.

And the site can be useful for the experienced designer who wants to sell products, but doesn’t have the proper technology to do 3D prints, which is a definite plus for the site.

Whether Shapeways grows into a major destination for consumers remains to be seen.

It will be exciting to see where the concept of 3D printing goes from here.
