Hi, I don't know if the same question had been asked before or not, but, from which country or countries will the models be printed ? I think customers may want to know this as well.

Shapeways is Netherlands based, however stainless is printed in the USA by ProMetal... I haven't a clue about the other materials, but any which way, as EU deliveries are from the EU & US deliveries are from the USA there's no clear cut answer to all of the materials as there are provisions for stuff to be shipped all over the place as 'raw materials'
