Anyone in the UK received one of these elusive items ? I placed an order for one on the 12th of August and still have not received it.

Awesome, I need to get back into 3D printing and this will definitely help select materials.

Recieved mine :-) really nice reference, especially for clients and people interested in 3d printing.
It's very nice that the entire thing is printed, this way they can immediately see an applied use for it.

actually, i have a question:

Were the detail materials for the sample kit printed at the highest detail, or at the faster detail level to speed up the distribution of the sample kits?

Are the detail materials still offered at their highest detail? I asked somewhere before, but forgot :-(

Hi Chris

The detail parts of the sample kit are printed in high quality. Also normal detail orders will be delivered in high quality. We will continue offering high quality.

Great sample kit -- It's so nice to see actual examples of the materials!
I was slightly disappointed to see that glass wasn't included, but I'm still very happy with it.

Also, I noticed that the description for glass in the materials booklet says "Recycled glass glued with an organic binder", but then the materials page on the website says it's laser sintered and fired in a kiln. Not sure which is correct, but I thought you might want to get it straightened out.
