Choosing the best material for your products

When picking materials for your model, think about how the material will help to position it as a product. Is it an exclusive piece that you want to only offer in Premium Silver? Or a versatile design that looks great in a range of materials and price points? Using different materials, a single design can become a variety of different products. For example, a model of a ring could become a fun, inexpensive piece of costume jewelry Alumide, or a precious keepsake in Polished Brass. Each deserve unique photos, descriptions, and price points.

Turn drawings into 3D models

Anyone can create 3D printed products using the 2D to 3D image popper, which allows you to turn a drawing or sketch into a 3D model. Learn more through this video tutorial.

Design for Cheaper Printing

Shapeways only charges you for the amount of material you use. There is no penalty for complexity or the bounding box of your model. This makes some products, like spectacles and jewelry, seem surprisingly inexpensive, while it makes other products more expensive. Here are three tricks to optimize your design for the lowest-cost 3D printing.

Designing for Full Color Printing

Like many of our printer technologies, our Full Color Sandstone printers work by laying down thin layers of powder and selectively binding this powder together to produce solid parts. Unlike our other printer technologies, this printer also uses a set of CMYK printheads to color the part while binding the powder together to produce the colorful solid parts.
