@chillyche: Thanks for the compliments.. I know that the ultra tiny details really stretch the limits of what is feasible, and my items have been a reall challenge at times for the production team, but if I can't make it move then why bother? <GRIN>

Have you worked at all with bits that need to be assembled after printing?


Not a lot. I've got a couple of houses where the roofs fit on as a 2nd piece, etc, or a train car is in two pieces, but rarely have I combined that with the ability to move (articulate) also. I'm sure that I will do some in the future. <grin>

And Ice1 and Ice9 (mentioned there and in SW's blog). More money (7,500 & 19,900 GBP without VAT) but also bigger build volumes (20 x 20 x 25 cm & 30 x 30 x 45 cm) and different laser.

Haven´t read the article yet.
But do they mention anything about the powder dust?

You don't want to have an EOS P100 in your living room :P (hence the masks they wear here)


Kind regards,

Hi guys,

We issued a small fix last night where some models weren't being properly indexed and thus would not be displayed.

I'm not sure if this is the same issue, so please let us know if this problem is still occurring! A model ID would be helpful too :)

If you check the Materials page (or the Announcements forum for a relatively recent message), lead times have been divided up into three groups based on bounding box size, with larger models taking longer. Could be you moved from very small to rather large models recently - the most important question however is whether the shipping time is still within their initial estimate - there are no delays for WSF/WSFp mentioned on the current Materials Status page. (And you might want to add a question mark to your title, at first glance it might be taken for an announcement)

Hmm... I recently received an order for WSFp - it arrived in 5 days... pretty swift, even by SW standards

However, I am watching an order placed by a customer (for coloured WSFp) on the 12th Aug - but it was evening so let's call it the 13th - still 'In production' on my sales XLS after 12 working days :/ . In addition, I've ordered myself the same item along with some ceramics - the ceramics are now 'In production', the coloured WSFp still 'Processing' - this is after 8 working days of placing the order. Could be in this case they are waiting until closer to the ceramic ship time (which is on target BTW).

I don't know what to take from this - I've waited super long times for ceramics in the past, maybe all materials suffer production delays from time to time, or maybe I'm just too impatient! ;)

Edit: Just placed an order of coloured WSFp items - target ship date 9th Sept or 8 working days, and often (in my experience) SW beat this by a day or two...

Your customer's payment may have been delayed (e.g. payment by bank transfer usually takes at least 3 business days)

I have 1 polished brass in my order and 13 combos of WSF black and 2 polished red WSF ... I got the brass in production. I guess they go from the highest to the lowest. Judging from that I`ll expect next week to see the 2 red ones going in production, and then in last 5 days the black 13 died ones.

I hope black 13 items are not bad luck. "grin" fingesrcrossed

Number of items per page changed in "Models"? Obviously layout did, no more big images in 3 columns.

Good catch! :) we've long neglected My Models and have been making small changes based on feedback from many of you that My Models made it very hard to manage when you had more than ~100 models.

We've also seen requests from people who order large quantities of models at the same time for a more efficient 'bulk ordering' option, so we've added a quantity field to make that easier.

We would love to hear feedback on the new layout - what you like and what you don't like - so we can keep improving it :)

I'm not sure when it will happen but it's definitely one of the long neglected pages we've had our eye on!! I'll grab someone from the team that works on shop management features to weigh in on this thread today :)

Would it be hard to add this new layout as a switchable option, much like file managers in many UIs can be switched between icons and text ?
