Since establishing our headquarters in NY in late 2010, we’ve had amazing growth. We grew our NYC office to 19 people, and we expect to double by mid-2012. Our community grew to 100,000 Shapies, for whom we currently make 30,000 unique items per month. With over 300,000 products on Shapeways, we have become the largest marketplace for printable 3D designs. Our technology keeps getting better, and we’ve introduced incredible materials that match the quality of traditional manufacturing, such as glazed ceramics, polished nylon, and silver. We offer by far the widest range of 3D printing processes to a growing market of creators of all stripes.

What we’re doing is still quite new (dare I say revolutionary?), and we’re working to solve three core challenges. We want to make it easier for everyone to make anything. We want to make it more affordable. And we want to make it faster, and faster.

So it is with great excitement that we announce a major stride toward solving these challenges: Shapeways is going to open up its own production facility in NYC in 2012.

With Makerbot and other 3D printer companies/resellers in the NY area AND Shapeways opening a production facility in 2012, NYC is now the 3D printing capital of the world.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
