Someone can probably do a better job than I, but I believe it is a website that takes design files from other people, and allows for cheap plastic "printing" and for others to buy their design products.

That's pretty much it.

Shapeways is a 3D printing company located in the Netherlands. You upload designs to their website, choose a material, and they'll print it out and send it to you. Their machines are capable of producting highly detailed and robust models at relatively inexpensive costs. While the primary function of these sorts of 3D printers is typically prototyping, they're a great way for modeling enthusiasts to have their designs made phyiscal.

A unique thing about 3D printing is that you can actually create objects that would be impossible to make otherwise, like this: YouTube - Gyro the Dodo

Hey I heard there was a guy who did a 5mm handle you can plug into the Mini Con port on the PCC 2 pack partners so you can use them as guns. Anyone know anything about this?

I wonder if the Classics Prime blaster and smokestack set are for the deluxe or for the voyager.

also wonder if that chest piece is for soundwave or for classics voyager megatron. I had heard someone did do a shapeway design for an IDW styled replacement for Classics Megatron, if that's true I'd be tempted to get it.

OK, found that they are for the Voyager Prime, so getting a pair. Going to paint the smokestacks with chrome silver so they match Henkei Convoy's grill.
