I love taking my ideas and turning them into physical objects. However my methods of doing so have always been long drawn out processes. Don't get me wrong, the process can be very enjoyable, but sometimes I just want to skip a few steps to get to where I want to be.
Insert 3D-printing. Shapeways is a platform that helps you take your ideas from conceptual drawings and sketches to a tangible item! I just might have to try this out and get some objects printed. I guess I need to brush up on my 3D rendering skills.
