I just got an email from Shapeways this morning, some sort of pricing change occurring 1st of October. Here's the blog post: Shapeways | blog: An Update to the Shapeways Pricing Structure I just want some discussion from the people here, on how this changes things, I know it throws a wrench in my plans, as the shipping to Australia is in itself $20 (which is insane). It means I'm going to have to cut back on designing and ordering, and buy everything i want before October 1st. Anyone else getting charged more due to the new system? Anyone benefit from it? Discuss. Meanwhile, i'm signing up on Ponoko. Don't know whether that's permanent or not. EDIT: Still struggling. Argh. EDIT 2: Nope, back to Shapeways. At least they have a decent (read: manageable) UI and uploader. Guess I'm going to need to save up more money. Or move to USA/EU countries. *I'm not affiliated with Shapeways, and if the mods don't like this they can delete it. I'm just slightly pissed off that I'm going to have to find another way to print stuff.
