Blog: 3D Printing-on-Demand is Guaranteed to Massively Accelerate SMT Acceptance / Dominance

Today's slashdot article re: Shapeways, an on-demand 3D printer service that will get you your fully-realized 3D model in about 10 days for around $50-$150.

Who will be the first to have a 3d "diorama" of this classic sitting on your desk at work?

Currently in closed beta, though, and it wasn't immediately clear (via browsing their web site for 2 minutes) which model formats they support. But one thing is for sure: if they don't support SketchUp now, SMT is at the forefront of driving that acceptance... BIG TIME.
