This is about an order from Oct 12nd 2014, it's a message from my customer received today Oct 30th 2014:

"Hi Luis,
Yesterday I received an email from Shapeways informing me that they are still experiencing some troubles in producing the remaining orders and mine is still pending in their "to do" list.
Up to now they still have to make the M10 hatches and they anounce a delivery date not before the 14th of November which is extremely long.
I'll keep you informed when I have the parts.

E.........."

I'm only write pure data this time. But I can't understand what game are shapeways ALSO playing with the customers.

Will a test phase be run along the FCP one? To compare both materials.

How does this full colour plastic relate to the full colour plastic that is currently in testing for designers?

The other is by 3dSystems.

So we'll be able to offer this material for sale sometime in 2017? What about the present color process?

I work here
As we will be an early customer we will be able to offer the material before the machines will be for sale commercially :)

Meaning before 2017 ;)

Looks very cool!
3D fractal type designs as can be created with MandelBulb would look great :)

I was thinking more about the difference between the process being available to designers as opposed to being available in a store. The elasto stuff still hasn't been released for store selling for I don't know how long. There's a Catch 22 that results. Why design and develop models in a material if it is not offered? And then how does SW gauge that the material has enough demand to keep it around or to allow store owners to sell it?
