"This week I received something rather nice in the mail. An absolutely gorgeous prototyped print of the original Petunia model from the guys at www.shapeways.com and I can't stop looking at it. It's rather nice to have a figure you can actually hold. But I decided I'll give it away!"
For those who are wondering about Shapeways, this is where Bart has been spending all of his time. He's been very involved with the company right from the start. Shapeways is an on line, 3D printer company. And of course, you can create your object in Blender (Thank you Bart!) and then print them out, and have a scaled model of your creation.
