The background sounds of this video are strangely compelling. As is the new material of course!

Bring it on! Am most definitely ready to try this new flexible material.

I'm VERY happy to see this material this close to being released. How many weeks? (you probably can't tell me, but I want to know!!!!! lol)

I've actually been waiting on this specific material to upgrade one of my designs. So exciting!!!!!!

I just hope we can get some prettier colors! Is it going to have a yellowish tint like the video/pictures or is that just from the lighting of the shots?

@teamshapeways keep up the great work!

Yeah, it is kinda yellow but I just did a quick dye test in red and it looks HOT !!!!!!!!!!

Would be interesting to see how the dye stands up to constant flexing.

Great, now I can print my own bed mattress, sleeping bag, pillow.... Probably outside the max dimensions, eh?!

Depends how tall you are.

Looks great! Hopefully the colours come out well (maybe a dark black?). This looks like a great material and opens up the utility of 3D printing. Everything from shock-absorbing cases for phones, through to flexible components for other models where tolerances vary but a tight fit is required.

Looks fun! I'm impressed how you guys at Shapeways are always on the ball.
