    Default Out of the Box Models Price increase Explanation. Sorry

    I just wanted to post ahead of a price increase that we are going to be implementing shortly. This is only for our 3D printed kits. We recently switched our production from Shapeways to a local vendor, that has better technology and higher level of customer service, than what we were getting from Shapeways. Our new vendor has a much better material that has better printing resolution than FXD, but without the instability. Our vendor also will be performing post processing of the parts, so as the consumer, all you would need to do, is just some light sanding. No more fussing with Bestine! I hope the added value of less fuss will make up for increase, but we are working harder than ever to get our resin working, so we lower prices back down! We are committed to manufacturing everything we make in the US, so please bare with us to help us make that a feasible reality.

    Will the Shapeways prints still be available or are those pages all getting pulled?

    Yes, everything from Shapeways has been moved to our new webstore. The new material that we're printing in is far superior to what Shapeways was offering anyway, and less work for our customers, so its a win all around.
