Shapeways community manager Bart Veldhuizen offers a video tour of the 3D print service company's Eindhoven site in The Netherlands.
Veldhuizen walks through and explains each stage of the Shapeways process, including verification of incoming 3D models, printing, cleaning, finishing, quality control and packing.
For some, Shapeways is like a black box, a mysterious factory that produces items at the touch of a button. But of course that's not really how it works. There are many people and sophisticated equipment involved in the process. You will see all of this in Veldhuizen's video.
