Do you have great 3D design ideas but don’t have the resources to print them? Here at Studio 300 we can help you design those ideas using software such as SketchUp and Blender and then print it with our Makerbot Printer. We use a plastic filament that’s great for many designs and prototypes.
However, if you’re looking for something to last a long time or be able to eat or drink from, Shapeways is a great site to check out. They offer stainless steel and gold plated brass that’s perfect for jewelry, sandstone that can produce photo-realistic color designs and food safe glazed ceramic. Pricing differs depending on what material and size you choose plus shipping and handling. We recommend you print a plastic prototype here at Studio 300 to test your design before you choose a more expensive material.
