It’s not exactly the Olympics, but Shapeways can now print in Gold and Bronze finishes thanks to their most recent announcement. They’ve added more finishings one can select for stainless steel prints. In addition to the existing Gold Plate Matte finish, you can now choose from:
  • Gold Plated Glossy (on the left above)
  • Antique Bronze Glossy (third from the left)
  • Antique Bronze Matte (on the right)
All we need now is for Shapeways to prepare a Silver Glossy finish and we can print out our own complete set of Olympic Medals!
