New York based company Shapeways launched its Long Island 3D Printing distribution centre last week. The company prints from a 3D Systems ProJet 3500 Plus printer which uses UV curable acrylic plastics. Shapeways began distributing their 3D printed products earlier this year allowing them to increase their U.S production efforts. They also plan to launch a ‘lab’ for developers and students to experiment with a variety of production methods and materials to further improve upon existing methods.
