    Went to buy a cap that was lingering in my cart, and saw this news. Looks like North American users have to head to the Euro site (for however long that keeps chugging). It was already a luxury purchase, but the Euro printing adds a noticeable premium to what the cost would have been from Shapeways. If anyone in Canada has a Nova cap they don't need, lmk ;)

    That’s the European one. I wasn’t sure if linking to sales sites was okay, so I kept it about the info!

    If not, the mods will remove it.

    I guess I got lucky when I ordered 2 mini caps with legs last month. Truly sad.

    I just ordered 4 legged mini caps, if anyone needs something else, I can order it and send it through. Although you'll pay shipping cost twice...

    Well this sucks. Ordering from this side of the pond is out to. I.Materialise just outright cancelled my order... :rage:
    They claim that their steel production is out of commission for an undisclosed amount of time...

    But instead of negotiating, they just cancelled my order, so I have a feeling something is up.

    That really does suck! I hope something new materializes in terms of production, but it sure looks like there’s going to be a cap drought.

    Price determines the costs.
    If you can't cover the costs with the price your customers agree to pay, you're out of business.
