We've been itching to try one of the many 3D printing online services ever since we heard of this amazing technology that was now affordable and available to the public. Lately we needed to embellish our office door with our brand, but the intricacy and the detail of our logo required the precision that only 3d printing can offer. It was as good an excuse as ever to do this.
We chose shapeways.com out of the many online services we researched. We modeled our logo using SketchUp, uploaded an exported *.obj file of the model to the service and received the finished model by mail after only 10 days. We decided to give the model a metallic finish using the airbrush paints hobbyists use to paint model airplanes/cars (This was a tip from shapeway's support). We highly recommend this fast and affordable service for your 3d printing needs.
