Looking for the perfect gift is hard, ammirite? BUT! This year is going to be different. This year we’re all going to have a helping hand from Target and one of the leading 3D printing marketplaces, Shapeways. We think it’s safe to say: Let’s 3D print ALL the gifts!
Just when you thought the AndrewAndrew collaboration with Target was the collabo of the year, Shapeways and Target partnered up to create an exclusive holiday collection. At the Target Shapeways Shop, there are over 150 products that you can customize to satisfy both you and your wallet. You can get a custom-made creation for as low as $8. If you live in the U.S., your gift will be delivered right to your front door.
The shop is an option wonderland and your own personalized gift maker. You can choose the type of material, color and size you want your item to be printed in or even hire a designer to help you turn your advanced creations into gifts. In other words, you’re going to be the ultimate Santa.
If you need inspiration, the Target Shapeways shop lists popular products you can choose from, or you can check out what has caught our attention in the 3D printing community.
Target and Shapeways are encouraging makers of all experience levels to create. You have the choice to create something from scratch or to tweak one of the many products on the online shop. Making a trinket or an ornament from scratch is easy with Shapeways’ 3D modeling tool, which we promise even your technologically challenged friend can use. The competition for the White House 3D Printed Ornament Challenge just got real.
