I had an AWESOME tour of Shapeways the other day. I learned that each Shapeways print is handled by 10-12 Shapeways-ers before arriving back to me.
For example, there's the person who sets up the file in the printer, the person who manages the quality of the print, and the person who dyes the print and checks the quality of the finished dye. These are just some of steps each piece goes through before they make their way to you.
As I was doing the tour, I met Roger who inspects many of the prints that come through Shapeways. He looked at my earrings and exclaimed, "I know that shape!!!"
Check out the photos from the day!
