|3D Plastic Parts by Shapeways|
Shapeways describes the parts as "grainy" and that the process consists of an inkjet binder and a powder bed of plastic which implies strongly that the service uses 3D System's ColorJet technology. The service will initially be available to a select group of Pilot Designers to test the usefulness of the parts before rolling it out to Shapeway's entire customer base.
This is an important milestone in 3D printing and will open the doors to a much wider set of manufacturing applications.
