I am Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO of Shapeways 3D Printing Marketplace and Community, AMA!
Shapeways is the world's largest 3D Printing Marketplace and Community where you can make, buy and sell 3D Printed Products. Our community of over 350,000 have uploaded over 1 million 3D designs to Shapeways.com. Currently, over 11,000 Shop Owners sell their designs through our marketplace. We currently print products in 30 materials including gold plated brass, silver and ceramic.
I started Shapeways 5 years ago with the hope of leveraging additive manufacturing to enable product personalization for all. We started as a part of the Phillips Incubator in Eindhoven, in the Netherlands. We are currently headquartered in New York City and have factories in Long Island City, New York as well as Eindhoven, NL.
I'm here to answer your questions about 3D Printing technology, the future of 3DP, how Shapeways can power your models and your business, etc. You can continue this conversation with me on twitter or facebook and be sure to take advantage of our free shipping on orders over $25 for the next 24 hours with special code: reddit.
My Proof: Here is a photo of me with some 3D Printed Reddit swag at our HQ on Park Avenue, go on, ask me anything!
Thank You Reddit!! This has been a blast. We will be back next week for more fun. Feel free to continue to add questions and the Shapeways Team will keep an eye on this thread.
