    So after being offered credits on purchases, and sworn to up and down that they'd be shipped this week, I was excited when I saw an email from Shapeways this week. This is what it trucking said though:

    The original order was placed April 13th... I'm getting to a "fuck this company" point.

    They've recently been experiencing a huge influx of orders as a result of their new material offerings, and apparently their detail machine had been down for a week or two. It sounds like they need to invest in additional printers.

    everything does smooth itself out either way. either you get your money back or you wait. i'd say wait since you already waited this long. but yes the frustration for these must be high enough to make even you swear. lol

    Yea. It'd be one thing if it was just me. But it's literally over 30 pairs of heels for over 20 members on this board... so, its affecting a lot of people.

    Well your situation sucks but there is nothing you can do about it. You can demand a refund and end it with no product and wasted time or invest a little more time and hope you get your product.

    I am sure the 20 other board members are not blaming you for the delay. Patience is all you can have here, although patience doesn't exist in a Transfan lol.

    How long did they say it would take? I once ordered something from someone else (not Shapeways) and was told it would take 10 days. 40 days later, after not getting any replies for a couple weeks, I posted a message about it and was told I had to be more patient...

    Just wait longer. It's a bunch of little plastic bits, not something time-sensitive.

    I got patience, I can wait, all that matters is they are working on them.

    Not your fault TJ. I can wait and appreciate the update on the original order. When they come in they come in.

    Don't stress over it and I'm sure the other members in the buy know it is out of your control. I thank you for coordinating the buy and handling the details.

    A wise man once said patience is a virtue.

    Keep in mind these are toys, ladies and gentlemen.

    Yea. I'm waiting it out, and it's nothing HUGE, but it just sucks to get PMs about when they're coming and all I can do is send back, "**Shrug** I honestly don't know... Shapeways says..."

    If it were my stuff, I wouldn't even care. I'm used to waiting a month for Japanese products. but it just sucks to have put together a group order with these kinds of delays.

    Edit: And thanks for the kind words guys. I know I'm prolly being more paranoid than I should, but I love B/S/T'ing on here so credibility and feedback is really "big" for me.

    You're not in the wrong TJ. Don't worry about any grief your group buyers may give you, if they give you any. You're doing your part just answering the pm's.

    Yea, everyone's been pretty patient. Definitely no negative vibes form anyone.

    It just sucks though... feel like I went out of my way to push and promote something that's having troubles, lol.

    Yeah nothing you can do TJ, Warbots been sitting on my shelf for a long time without heels so a little longer is not going to matter. I get where you are coming from though, its especially frustrating with stuff like this if the company doesnt give you much of an update.

    Dude i totally forgot about the heels, this thread just reminded me but its not on you TJ its just the company for having lack of material. You will still get another positive feedback post from me.

    HAHAHAHAAHAHA. Well, I'm glad u got a kick out of it Fa! :lol 

    Here's the kicker. Look at the title of the email



    So once I saw that popup on Yahoo messenger, I'm all fist-pumping like, "YES!" and ready tocome and post to everyone that they've shipped, then I read that, and then it's just like "DUN DUN DUUUUUUN".

    Definitely one of those moments where you look around for cameras bc you think you're being punk'd.

    So... sorry for the fit guys, but, I do appreciate everyone who's ordered with this being understanding!

    If you know of a better place to get 3D prints, feel free to share. Otherwise, we're stuck using Shapeways for our home designed stuff.
