Shapeways, a full-service 3D printing platform, has reached important milestones in scaling its manufacturing solutions to meet diverse customer requirements worldwide. To date, the company has produced more than 20 million parts using 10 different printing technologies and 90 different materials and finishes.
“This is a great milestone as we roll further into 2021, moving forward, but also remembering what was learned and lost in 2020—an undeniably challenging year for everyone; in fact, a dedicated number of the products manufactured were a result of you, the Shapeways community, coming together in making 3D printed face shields, other COVID-19 related items, as well as contributing financially,” said Greg Kress
CEO of Shapeways.
Over a million customers across 160 countries have selected Shapeways to simplify and speed the production of everything from personal protective equipment (PPE) to combat COVID-19 to 3D printed prosthetics and a growing list of unique, one-of-a-kind products. More unique applications include smart beehives, rugged device mounts for off-road vehicles and hydrometer for brewing craft beer
“Shapeways fosters creative freedom by removing manufacturing guesswork and complexity,” said Miko Levy, chief revenue officer of Shapeways. “Our purpose-built software, automated manufacturing workflows and quality processes are accelerating success for some truly groundbreaking products.”
