Shapeways - 3D Printing

Seems that we can create 3D models fit for printing in 3D and then offer to sell the printed models directly by having them issue the prints based of our models. There does not seem to be an option to paint / texture these models though. There are 7 "materials" to choose from so with some creativity (if necessary), a model can be created in separate parts using different materials and then put back together if end-user painting is not desirable...although that completely depends on the model design. ;)

Pricing is based on the type and amount of material used. So it is not wise to create a solid object unless you need the weight (such as a base stand).
