3D PRINTING
YEAR IN REVIEW
SHAPING THE FUTURE
3D Printing for Everyone
Now more than ever, 3D printing enables anyone to take
an idea and turn it into a physical reality.
It’s changing how products are made and by whom.
Here’s how...
Anyone Can Create
Free Tools + Access to Dozens of Materials
= Creativity Unlocked

50%

+

Shapeways Shop Owners are
self-taught 3D modelers

100%
Growth in number of people
creating products
...Even a 12 Year Old!
“Proof that @shapeways
is for everyone: I’m a 12 yr
old designer, and made
my own iPod case with
#3DPrinters” - @iPhonical

“I had many ideas of what I would do if I could make anything. Who wouldn’t
want a life size toy giraffe? As I thought about it, I realized, I don’t. I wanted
something I would use every day. Something that would be helpful and useful
in my everyday life. I thought, What do I use every day?
Then I realized: Who doesn’t use their iPhone every day? How about their iPod?
At that point, I had my mind set.”
- BRENDAN CHANG, 12-YEAR-OLD SHAPIE
But You Don’t Have to Know How to
3D Model
Because of growing apps and businesses that help people
turn ideas into 3D designs into reality.
Here are some examples...
Collaborations Help
Dreams Come True
Shapeways member, Alexander
worked with designer and 3D
modeler Glenn Slingsby to make his
daughter’s birthday wish come true:
Building an interactive, 1/12 scale,
true-to-life Nautilus ship from
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Say Hello to the Future
“Garage Entrepreneur”
More and more, individuals are
starting businesses on Shapeways

13.5k
Shapeways shops, a 75% growth from 2012

hobbyists to engineers with 25+

ANCIENT FLUTES
Including Wade’s Wish
to Be a Superhero
July 2013

Fearless 6-year-old Wade Sharp, who
has brittle bone disease, wanted to
see how video games are made and
to become a video game character.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation
responded.
After spending an afternoon at
Robot Entertainment, Wade received
a 3D Printed figurine of himself,
Wade the Super-Master!
3D Printing is Helping
People Go from Prototype to Market — Fast
BitWise’s KeyBit, a key ring Mac
adapter holder, “would not exist
without 3D printing.”
3D printing has given him freedom to
• Iterate design and materials quickly.
• Produce high quality details at small scale.
• 3D print in steel, the material used for both his 	
prototype and final product.

Entrepreneurs like Jonathan use 3D
printing to quickly prototype (and
Shapeways to open up shops).

“The product went from idea to the printer in
a single morning before work, and 3 weeks
later I had a product for myself and to share
around the world.”

by Marco Mahler and Henry Segerman

Have you tried weaving ceramic before?
It’s hard. Real hard.

A mobius, especially an interlocking one,
cannot be manufactured any other way.

Made of 1,365 pieces, this would take a lot
of time and patience to assemble.
