The Verge's new series "Small Empires" is a weekly show that focuses on rising New York City startups. In their fifth Episode hosted by Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, the crew took a tour of the Shapeways' HQ and factory in Long Island City, NY.

Watch the well-produced and inspiring 25 minute video below that Alexis Ohanian talks to Shapeways staff and CEO Peter Weijmarshausen, as well as Shapeways artist / cufflinks aficionado Peter Knocke, whose work is made via Shapeways.
