    I just received my TFP Voyager Megatron Fusion Cannon and the thing is way too grainy imo.

    You usually need to sand prime and paint the unpolished stuff

    Shapeways is killing me on a $9 shipping fee, raised rates on every type of plastic, and now a 'peocessing fee'. There's a huge amount of backlash on the officials forums over their price hike during the pandemic. On top of that it seems they disabled all their online coupons! I go to checkout and want to purchase a single gun and got hit with a $31 total. There has to be something better.

    Oh wow. I didn't know about this. I just ordered from them for the first time recently.

    My issue with Shapeways is having to paint the parts. I'd happily fork out more for painted parts.
