    Hey Guys,

    As you may have seen on the blog, we are saying goodbye to glass:

    http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/1760-Goodbye-to-Glass -on-December-6th.html

    We're always trying to push the limits of what is possible with 3D printing here at Shapeways, introducing new materials and encouraging innovation. However, sometimes to grow, you have to let things go.

    We've noticed that you haven't been as excited about glass over the last year, and we have a great opportunity to use these glass 3D printers for research and development. This means we will soon be bringing you new materials to replace glass!

    Please note that December 6th will be the last day we will be offering 3D printing glass, so you have three weeks to place your orders.

    What does this mean for you?

    If you're a designer who has glass models available for sale, glass will be removed as a material option starting December 6th. You can, of course, still offer them in other materials. All you have to do is ensure those materials are enabled on your product page. We recommend testing these models in new materials before making them available for sale.

    If you want to buy glass products, make sure you do so before December 6th to ensure delivery by the holidays.

    Lastly, given that we will be using these machines for research, let us know what materials you would most like to see next!

    Thank you,
    Natalia
