Just winging.....

Recommended Posts

ok so it turns out i had an ultimaker in my cart.....but its still $80 for the cheapest tracking option, and $35 for uninsured with no tracking ( so the postage company could just throw it in the bin and I would never know) why cant ultimaker just use regular post for small parts?

More affordable shipping

We’ve added shipping alternatives and negotiated with DHL to get better rates.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
