Wow! I just ordered a couple of items last week, and it was delivered two days ago. Guess I just got it under the wire.

 

In a similar vein, when I was in charge of our companies profit sharing monies, I decided to sell our shares of some investment REIT. It wasn't something I bought, and seemed something hard to value and a little flaky to me, so I sold it. Not two weeks after it sold, I found out it went bankrupt. I congratulated my timing, until I get a letter in the mail telling me I had to return my money. BS, I thought, until it was pointed out to me if an entity goes bankrupt, any monies paid out within 60 days of the bankruptcy can be called back. :( So instead of getting our money, we got zero. So not great timing after all.

Prices were initially reasonable but progressively went up to reach stupid levels. I used to get various 1/32 and 1/35 sets from them years ago but rarely went there since the COVID for that specific reason. It clearly looks they killed themselves their business. Too bad!

I'm not surprised by Shapeways. There prices were way over the top and it was just cheaper for people to buy their own 3D printer and print at home. You could say they priced themself out of the market.

exact reason why I started 3D printing. their prices were utterly crazy

The problem is that printing oneself is only replacing half of what Shapeways was offering! The platform covering dozens of thousands of topics created by other people and that you could order is also gone! The prices became outrageous but what about the cost of time to make oneself all the CAD files...?
