Fantastic news, guys! Also saw that today's order promised 8 days shipping instead of 10. Keep it up!

great news! so there is going to be a cheaper US price now that's different then the rest of the world?

Sorry for the confusion, there was a brief miscommunication,

We have simply eliminated any import and UPS duties to the USA for now... Prices per cubic centimeter have not been reduced yet.

OK, well increased margins for shapeways makes me happy too.

Not yet, it was sales tax over different states that caused the confusion for me (not being in the USA)...
Buyers in NYC must pay a sales tax, everybody else in the USA does not, for now, to my knowledge...

Hhm, wonder how this will affect your frozen neighbours to the north... probably not at all except possibly shorter delivery times... or will they still come from the Netherlands?

Hey Glenn,

Not yet, US only for now but we are looking to change that in the near future...

Hold tight.

Can you tell us if same machines are used to print out WSF material in US? In other words, will WSF objects be done in exactly the same way like in NL? (same machine, I think it was EOS 100.. and also same base Nylon material) (?)
Reason I ask is that I did try to print some of my DualNexus bracelets on different sintering machine - and while print came out okay form-wise - material used was somewhat different that shapeway's WSF - and so it more more brittle.

Hey Igor, we will continue to use the EOS100 for US orders so they will be the same great quality.
