You guys are probably familiar by now with Shapeways, the Internets finest purveyor of 3D models turned into fabricated goods. You can get solid steel etched 20-sided dice, bangles, and all sorts of things, but one limitation has been that, despite having a variety of materials, they were all one color. No more! Now, as long as you use this “sandstone” material, you can have your design colored to your heart’s delight.
The process won’t work on every model, obviously, and you have to be pretty good at modeling to get the colors right, but the fact is it works and it looks pretty solid. If you want something to prove it, get this little rabbit. Only $3.56.
