Shapeways & Their 3D Printing Line-Up + Win A Dice Set!

74 Comments

We stop in for a chat with some of the designers and the community manager behind Shapeways who are bringing a lot of 3D printed products to the tabletop and allowing people to stretch their imaginations.

See Ian's Store here: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/nvenom8

They have some amazing dice here to show off and so we're also going to be giving away a set (of your choice) of Chuck's Dice from his particular store - https://www.shapeways.com/shops/madebywombat

Curious to see where 3D Printing will stand in 10 years from now.

Is this art reflecting reality,or just an odd dice throw.

Those dice are beautiful, was checking out his shapeways store, some great stuff there. I love that they are metal, meaning strong and durable, and wont wear down as fast as some plastic dice do.

Very nice Dice ideas. 3D Printing lets the imagination go wild!
3D Printing is the future… will Shapeways be the Internet Cafe of gaming once we all have 3D Printers at home?

I’m one of those people who doesn’t have a 3D printer but think those who do and bring to life something they’ve made are people who can share their ideas and products to other people who WILL pay for their work….well done and nice to see.

I love Shapeways service! I’ve used it to order tons of minis for Battlefleet Gothic. Haven’t been disappointed!

Wow. I think both dice designers have some terrific sets and I’ve long coveted one since I discovered them years ago.

These creators are so passionate! I have the equivalent of a Gardner’s black thumb when it comes to art and am always impressed with these wonderful ideas brought to life.

like the dice, I didn’t know you could print in metal! I wonder how much a printer that does that is?
