mmacx writes "Technology Review has an article about Shapeways, a new online rapid-prototyping service which allows users to upload digital designs that are then printed on 3-D printers and shipped back. A spinoff from Philips Research, the service gives small businesses, designers, artists and hobbyists access to prototyping tools that were once available only to the largest corporations. The fee for a typical printed object is $50-$150. Their video shows the steps behind the process."
