It is a sad day to see one of the iconic figures of shapeways step away. You will be sorely missed Joris. My best to you in your new adventures.

heey Joris!
That's definitely a bummer for all of Shapeways users and members!! But I do really hope that the opportunities you set off to pursue will prove even more beneficial.
I've admired the level of your enthusiasm and commitment! Take care! We will miss your videos and blog posts!

Unbelievably sad news for all shapeways members! :-(

It was you 9 months ago who inspired me to pursue materializing my ideas with 3D printing..
with that one line email "I really really like your "my buddy" USB charger for iPhone".
That line made me dive into the 3D modeling realm.

Thank you for all your kind responses and blog/forum posts.

I wish you the very best of luck in your new opportunities - You will be missed.

So sad to see you leave Joris!

Will you pass along our concepts for our ShapeShot 3D face capture opportunity? We're real excited about our progress, we have a new system going to NYC next week. Please pass on the torch to somebody and let me know!

Best to you!

You've done a terrific job! I've seen the Shapeways name pop up everywhere and MANY people mentioning it during my RepRap ambassadorial work, you're definitely possible for a significant share of that. Good luck with your "new opportunity" :-)

Good luck Joris! It is sad to see you go. You have been a super great help with all my Shapeways questions, and I wish you the best!

I thought I had explained 3D Printing/Shapeways to a lot of people, I cant imagine how many people you have explained it to.

Good luck Joris!

Dude !
I still don't see this option in the "co-create you community manager survey".. :-P

Hate to see you go.. you've been one of THE faces of Shapeways for many of us.
Your humor, enthusiasm and encouragements will be missed.
Thanks for the most excellent work you did for us !
Without it, many of us would have failed and quit.

Cheers !

Joris, I wish you the best for your future plans.

I already feel sad because you are leaving.
I did my first steps in 3D printing with Shapeways and you! During this period, not only I was able to print my models, but also, I exhibited my 3D printed work into various exhibitions.

You've been a great help man! Thank you!

Good luck!

All the best to you Joris - it's been a great ride. Can't wait to see where you'll pop up...

I'm sorry I haven't responded to this thread yet. I'm going to miss Joris a lot! I wonder if maybe in the subconcious part of my brain I was thinking ... "if I ignore this information, maybe it will all go away and Joris will be back, and everything will be the same again".

I guess I'm just glad that he's not totally gone, and will still be doing posts here and keeping track of what's happening in our community.

You really are a gem lost in the crown of Shapeways Joris! I will miss your goofiness and your philosophical musings. I hope the one that takes your place will glow as brightly and treat everyone with as much patience as you have.
