Shapeways is a Dutch-founded, New York-based 3D printing marketplace and service. Shapeways’ mission is to make it possible for everyone to design, make and sell products. The models are printed with their own 3D printers (HP and EOS printers). Via the Shapeways website it is possible to have your own models printed, adapt existing models (via the so-called Co-Creator Platform) or to buy models from designers directly via the Shapeways Shops. 3D designers can open a Shop to sell products directly via Shapeways.
