Your Secret Heart Coffee Cup
wiebus @rediraevac The regular size and large cup will be available again by end of February. The issue is that, with their new policies, Shapeways forces designers to first order every even so slightly variation of a model in every material themselves before anybody else will be allowed to buy it. The former "Be the first to try"-option is no longer available to the public. So talking about all my models (6 different variations of the "secret heart cup", 12 variations of my "heart family vases" etc.) which I had all on sale -- and all printed successfully many times in Ceramics, before Shapeways discontinued this material almost overnight for almost a year -- I had to invest about additional 800€/ $900 to re-order them all for myself in the replacement material Porcelain before somebody else will be allowed to order any of these models. That's why most of my former models are not available anymore. I am a hobbyist designer. To invest ~$900 just to get all my designs back to the Shapeways shop for primarily _their_ business makes not much sense anymore. However, because you and some other Shapeways members recently asked for the normal size secret heart coffee cup, I ordered one myself about a week ago. Once this is successfully printed, Shapeways will re-enable public ordering for the model. Shapeways current printing status indicates Feb. 26th as estimated shipping date to me. So the regular (an large size) cup should be back on sale by end of February. Thanks a lot for your interest in my designs, which I really appreciate! Kind regards Sven

Your Secret Heart Espresso Cup (small)
wiebus @jwweststrate Hi JW, the issue is that Shapeways forces designers with their new policies to first order themselves every variation of a model in every material category, before anybody else can order it. There is no "Be the first to try"-option anymore. So talking about all my models (6 different variations of the "secret heart cup", 12 variations of my "heart family vases" etc.) which I had on sale and printed successfully in Ceramics at Shapeways, I would have to invest about 800 € to re-order them all for myself in Porcelain before anybody else is allowed to order one of these models again. That's why most of my former models are not available anymore. However, because you asked for the normal size secret heart coffee cup, I have now just ordered one myself (as well as the large coffee-mug size version). Once these are successfully printed, which will be in about 3-4 weeks, Shapeways will re-enable public ordering for these models. KInd Regards Sven
