Big Plans For Shapeways New 3D Print Factory

Shapeways will be hiring engineers (AKA pre-press technicians), machine operators, and fulfillment staff to support a new 3D print shop in New York City that can produce up to 5 million objects yearly. At a low-ball estimate of $10 each that’s a $50 Million business. We’re guessing each object we’ll probably sell for closer to $20.

To learn more about the new factory, check out this article on Fast Company. It reminds us of 2D digital print facility. The equipment even looks like a production digital print device  (Indigo or Xeikon maybe?)

Seems like there is too much money on the table for traditional printing companies to ignore this market much longer.
