'Make Apps' that Make Products using 3D Printing

Shapeways is now providing Web APIs into its Factory of the Future platform. With the Shapeways API you can generate and sell physical products, just by writing code!

Your 'Make App' can submit 3D data files to Shapeways, control pricing, materials and finishing, with  control of the Shopping Cart customer experience. 

Mixee Me is using Shapeways via the new API to outsource its production to Shapeways. Each Mixee is designed by you using the Mixee editor app. Then, it is 3D printed by Shapeways and delivered to your doorstep. You get to decide what your Mixee looks like - you can pick the hair, eyes, body parts, even upload your own graphic for facial expressions and shirt designs!

Documentation is provided to developers here. Shapeways are encouraging the sharing of client reference code via GitHub
