Valentine’s day is only a few days away, and what better gift for the tech geek companion than 3D printed roses. That’s just what Makeshop, by Brit+Co, has been offering on their website. For just $15 you could have ordered one 3D printed rose, with stem, bow, and all. If you were a little more affectionate, you could have ordered the half dozen rose package for $45, or the full dozen roses, delivered for $100. The packages were only offered in the San Francisco area, and the quantity available was unknown.
If you were waiting until the last minute to order your plastic roses, tough luck. Makeshop has announced that they sold out of all 3 packages. It appears that there may have been a mad rush in the last day or so, as people tried getting their orders in for the unique gift. Just 12 hours ago Brit+Co. was still promoting the roses on their Facebook wall.
If you missed out, or don’t live in San Francisco Proper, don’t fret. Makeshop hopes to offer the same roses nationwide for Valentine’s day 2015.
MakeShop is not the only company offering creative 3D printed gifts for the holiday. A Tokyo based company, FabCafe was offering custom 3D printed chocolates in the shape of your own face. Traditionally in Japan, the woman is expected to provide a chocolate treat to the man on Valentine’s day, and the man is supposed to return the favor the following month. these would have been the perfect, yet someone self absorbed, gift.
These are just some examples of how widespread 3D printing has become, commercially, in the last year. Shapeways has also entered into the Valentine’s Day festivities with an entire page dedicated to 3D printed holiday gifts. For just $12.63 one can order this 3D printed nylander rose.
