Question about Shapeways

3 posts in this topic

I am curious about shapeways. What is it? And do you think I should use it for making 3D virtual LEGO parts?

Shapeways is a 3-dimensional printing service. It is explained here.

Having used the service I can say that I would work overall for making some pieces, but Lego's plastic types and measurements are so incredibly specific that I think it would be hard to make pieces that would actually work with normal minifigs. You might want to ask about this in the Minifig Customization forum also because although this is a digital process, the people there might have more experience in actually using it.
