Shapeways in COLOR

By on April 28th, 2009 in blog


Shapeways takes another step forward in capability. Their most popular material, the eponymously-named

“White, Strong and Flexible”

is now available in colors! Three, actually: Limestone, Blue Jeans and Terracotta, or as we might say: grey, blue and orange. But they are a really good grey, blue and orange!

The selected color is dyed into the material, and at this time Shapeways permits only one color per print.

While this is a relatively minor feature improvement, it gives us a smile, because we know if minor improvements continue regularly over time, we’ll eventually reach a place where amazing things only dreamt of today will be possible.
