Shipping items from Shapeways USA online store to international locations, such as the United Kingdom (UK), is possible.
Below I explain an easy way to do it.
Many USA online stores do not offer international shipping, and even when they do the cost of sending many individual packages to the international locations, like the UK, can be very costly.
However, using a freight forwarder like MyUS.com allows you to ship almost any product you wish to practically any country and you can do so at very affordable rates.
How to Ship Items from Shapeways online store to the UK
Your first step would be to access the MyUS.com website and create an account. After the account is created you will be assigned a US physical address at that facility.
You can send your Shapeways purchases directly to this address even if you do not live in the United States or have a US address.
MyUS.com will assist you with your international shipping needs to the UK or any other location in the world.
You can send the products you purchase from Shapeways or any US-based store to your MyUS.com member physical address. The freight forwarder will accept your packages and will notify you when they arrive.
You can send them several packages from the same or different USA online stores, and, at your request, MyUS.com will consolidate them into a single order before shipping them to the UK.
This consolidation of your packages will save you up to 80% of international shipment costs.
