I placed an order on May 22nd that is still listed as "in production". By the time I get the prints it'll be too late to prepare the puzzles for the Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition. At least I'll have a big head start for next year...

I placed my order in the evening of 30. May, with an 'in production' status since 4. June.

But, it seems to help to use the contact form, as I first got above message yesterday about the delay and now a message that my item will be handed over to UPS today.

Maybe they shifted over my order to the front in line (didn't ask to do so), sorry...
(or they work backwards with their backlog)

Update: Shapeways still has some delay regarding plastics (WSF, colored S&F).

We are working on allocating capacity, unfortunately, we don't have a concrete estimate on when we will get back on track. We have limited capacity for bigger parts, and there's been an increase in bigger parts recently.


Probably too many big puzzles ordered nowadays.... We'd better focus on making micro-cube shapes :scrambled:

:)

Well maybe, just maybe they'll be honest about the timelines now :)

<bump>

I just ordered at Shapeways, and notice there's still a backlog on (W)SF materials. Especially larger parts.
I'm not sure from what size they'll call it larger parts...

Seems they'll never catch up the delay this way.
