Shapeways sample

Yes, that is a little 3D printer.

Shapeways’ booth showing off samples for their 3D printing on demand service was packed all Saturday. And no wonder; their set of samples was super slick! From nylon meshes and Theo Jansen walking models to glazed ceramics and printed silver jewelry, this collection of samples will even wow the unbelievers.
