Shapeways is on a mission to democratize creation, and enable you to make whatever you can imagine. We believe everyone has the power to be a creator, and we envision a world where the objects around us are rich with meaning because we've helped bring them to reality. Rapid iteration, openness, and a love of design are baked into our team's values. We're bringing one of the most innovative technologies in the world to the global market, and we're having a great time changing the way we relate to the stuff in our lives. Our marketplace of over 10,000 shops enables community members to share their designs with the world. We've built tools to help people without 3D design experience customize, and even create, the stuff in their lives. By providing a platform for our community members to share ideas and gain access to cutting edge 3D printing technology and materials, we're bringing personalized production to everyone. We print everything on-demand, which means that every order is customized and personalized. It also means we try to minimize waste, and that shop owners don't have to worry about inventory management. We're working to democratize creation by making production more accessible, personal, and inspiring. Headquartered in New York with offices in Eindhoven, Shapeways is a spin-out of the lifestyle incubator of Royal Philips Electronics. Investors include Union Square Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Lux Capital, and Index Ventures.
