Shapeways Now Lets You 3D Print With Soft, Squishy Plastic

At the moment, Shapeways is rolling out Elasto Plastic as an experimental option, which means that it can only be used to print 3D models you’ve uploaded yourself, not in the company’s online store. If it’s found to be strong and durable enough though, it could eventually be offered as an option for everything on Shapeways’ site. And, most importantly, if this were the only option, 3D-printed guns would be far less scary. [Shapeways via TechCrunch]
