TT Nut Tank and Gondola have landed in California!!!

After a false start... Shapeways seem to have decided that Alex's design -IS- producible.
Result: Two sugar-white cars sitting on this desk as I type.

Now... to decide what prototypes???
At this point I'm thinking MILW gon and Hooker Chemical tank...

The service is really speedy... once they accept the order:
Order date: 25 January
Production Start: 27 January (they send progress e-mails)
Ship: 31 January
Received: 02 February

THANKS ALEX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're welcome! I'm glad they finally decided my designs are worthy of manufacture :evil:

They've been giving me a lot of problems lately and my patience is running out..............

Thanks Boss, did the new material solve the rough finish problem?

It did - but it's a no go for now.

FYI,

I've come close to covering my Shapeways development expenditures with my Shapeways sales. So, all prices have been reduced - the amount of reduction depends on the item but all cars have been reduced by $2.

Alex, thanks for all. I'm impressed about your work.

Is there anything new about your "frosted-ultra-detail"-try?
