Web Highlights: Shapeways

Web Highlights: Shapeways

Web Highlights is an ongoing series showcasing some of the brightest and most useful destinations online, celebrating imaginative minds that come together in Web Development to make internet a more interesting place. This week’s highlight is Shapeways, a New York based startup that literally sells anything, by using 3D printing to turn raw materials into original products.

The digital marketplace is at a turning point. Research firm Futuresource Consulting has forecasted that the 3D printing industry will be worth $7.5 billion dollars by 2018, and as companies like Shapeways continue to make 3D printing accessible to the masses online, more and more customers will opt to have their ideal product created rather than search for the closest compromise.
