Shapeways Updating Pricing Structure

Hello everyone,

I would just like to start by thanking everyone who has been supporting Custom Minis so far.  I just received an email from Shapeways that they will be updating their Pricing Structure starting on October 1st.  I've been able to review the information slightly and it appears Shapeways will not be charging a Handling Fee (startup cost per model) to help overcome their cost of operations.

This is not anything new from Shapeways as we experienced this when they we were testing out the Ultra Detail material Shapeways offers.  But they will now be charging this for every material.  We are currently evaluating how this will effect the way we do things here at Custom Minis but it appears we will have to begin bundling miniatures into larger groups to split the Handling fee over many models.  After I have review the situation Custom Minis may end up dropping White Detail material and use solely the Ultra Detail material to provide the best product at the best price.

For more information on these changes please feel free to visit their post;

I will update everyone as changes are made on this side.
