    5. Mitchell Jetten

      that is a possibility 😀 but i don’t know what to draw! i also was thinking of a shapeways pig,, but i don’t want to co create my own texture 😛

      yes i know i’m lazy!

    6. Mitchell Jetten

      sorry duann,, made the order allready :$ got 3 orders open now 🙂

    7. Duann

      yeah, maybe next time?

      But I am sure the same design would look equally fetching as a ring.

      Thanks for the tip Jo.

    8. Mitchell Jetten

      i was thinking of buying a ring to be honest Jo! but to be honest, i haven’t really got a clue what to draw,, don’t have that much imagination 🙁 sorry

    Lovely! was waiting for this one.
    I immediately ordered one, but forgot to use a discount code i still had lying around. Can i merge 2 codes into 1?



    1. Maartje Vijn

      Hi Chris, Yes, the Shapeways service team can merge the code’s!
      You can contact us here : service @

  4. bettina

    Great, was waiting for it too and am going to order one now.

    Just a small thing: it would have been good to get the reference files along with the package rather then having to download single files from here. or maybe a packaged download with all files would be easier.

    Thanks though, i am looking forward to receiving mine. cheers, bettina

  5. dskloet

    Can we use the discount coupon to make a $25 order for free? Or do we still have to pay a minimum of $25 meaning that we can make a $50 order for $25?

    1. Duann

      Yes you can use it for a $25 order.

  6. DrJekyll

    I ordered one today 🙂 but the shop is now selling if for $35.70 🙁

    1. Tom van der Zanden

      Oh no! The ever-confusing VAT strikes again!

    2. Steven Heide

      Silly me, I did see it for $30 before I logged in. Damn you taxman. Still a good price though.

  7. dskloet

    It still shows up for $30 to me.

  8. Maran van brakel

    Just wondering what the delivery time is on this?
    ’cause I guess they’re all pre-made?

    I live in The Netherlands.

    1. John Wilson

      Good question, i ordered mine on the 13th and am still waiting?

      if they’re pre-made i can’t imagine it would take that long, but if not then the steel one would be the longer to get made so might push the time out a bit.

    2. Mitchell Jetten

      wait your turn 😛
      mine is orderd 12th

      for the moment he is still only accepted!

    3. John Wilson

      Hahah, well thats good to know 😀

      i’m sure they had a lot of interest in them

    4. Maran van brakel

      Hopefully the didn’t forget us… 🙂

      Well, I guess I just have to be patient then.

    5. David de Kloet

      I ordered this and something else on Aug 15. The other thing has arrived in the mean time but no trace of the sample pack. Would be nice if Shapeways could give us an update on why it is taking this long.

  9. Mitchell Jetten

    Guys Guys,

    Long awaited Shapeways Materials sample kit.

    Delivery time of this product is 20 working days.

    1. David de Kloet

      Is that 20 days from now? Because 20 days have already passed since my (and the other posters’) order.

    2. duann scott

      It should be 20 ‘working days’ from your order.

      So not long now, There were a batch made up but the demand exceeded the stock so it will be the metal printing that slows down the orders.

    We first launched our Material Sample Kit over two years ago and much has changed since then. We have more metals, more colors, more finishes with MUCH more to come. To make room for all of these new materials we are introducing a whole new range
