Shapeways announces today two new 3D printing materials: Polished Brass and Raw Brass. The new Polished Brass is final-product quality, with a very smooth, glossy finish. Raw Brass is perfect for creating antique-looking items, functional parts, jewelry prototypes, and it works really well for you to polish or finish yourselves. It is mainly for people making functional parts, or who want to post-process material.

Both Polished Brass and Raw Brass will have the same design rules as Gold Plated Brass:

  • Max bounding box: 100x100x100mm
  • Minimum wall/wire: 0.8mm
  • Minimum Emboss: 0.4mm Minimum
  • Engrave: 0.35mm

Polished Brass will have a start up of $20 and $18.00 per cm3
