Order Lead Time / Shipping to US / US Dist.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Order Lead Time / Shipping to US / US Dist.

I'm in the United States and would like to order a UM2. I have a couple questions.

How long is the order lead time? Is it really 8-10 weeks?

What is the approximate cost to ship to the US? Are there any custom problems?

Are there any US distributors besides MakerShed (currently out of stock with no estimate of availability).

    yes, really 8-10 weeks. Someone just got one today after 9 week wait. Shipping is 3 days to USA. Shipping cost if I remember right is around $150? I forget. And if price goes over $2500 or so you might have to pay around $50 in duty/import taxes. Depends on exchange rate maybe.

    I believe the lead time is still in the 8-10 weeks timeframe, yes. From their store, it looks like shipping cost is about $90; I don't think you should have to pay duty on the printer, but you might have to pay duty on filament or other things ordered with it. I've heard different reports from different people; but can't recall anyone definitely saying that they had to pay customs duties on the printer itself coming into the US.

    There are not currently any US distributors as far as I know, no.
