I bet... TDR's 3D printer was down for some time. I ordered my block and heads on the 3rd of December and they just arrived on Friday. So you may be waiting awhile, I am sure they had a bit of a backlog.

Dave looking forward to seeing this body, I want one. TDR what a great company I got my order and a letter say that a few of the small parts were missing and they would send them soon, well they sent the parts plus replaced the complete order wow great customer service. Will be ordering more things from them.

I'm sorry I didn't see it before.

Tim, mahalo for everything.
I want to send a note out to Dan in Brazil, his art work is amazing.
I want that Hebmuller, so bad!!!!
Dave, let's see if we can put together something in print on this build.
I have started a new feature, The Digital Modeler, and this will fit right in.

Dave I am not going to step all over your build topic. I just wanted to clear something up about TDR.

TDR does not own any 3D printers.......... We do absolutely no printing....... All of our printing is subcontracted out.

What does TDR do then??????? What we do is work up all the computer models, make them printable, get the files to the 3D printing subcontractor, work up the catalogs, and handle customer relations. So TDR does not have any control over the time it takes to print the models out, that is in the hands of the subcontractors.

Lastly I wanted to summarize the time it takes to deliver the parts you order. The time varies depending upon the material that it is printed in. Here is how it shakes out

1) The "sand cast" finish material, our cheapest, takes 10 to 15 working days to ship.
2) The WSF material usually takes 10 calender days to ship out.
3) The FD and FUD material usually takes 30 days to ship out

If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a PM or an email at TDR.Innovations@gmail.com

Thanks
Tim

Thanks Tim, nothing really to clear up because you said this once before. I miss spoke and meant Shapeway's, and was specifically told by one of the employee's that the 3D printer was down and this was what caused my parts to take longer than expected.

Dave was saying he was excited and like all of us, the wait is very difficult knowing what will be coming in the mail from TDR/Shapeway's. I was just mearly stating what happened to my order based on what conversations took place between myself and the Shapeway's employee. I was just throwing it out there that, due to what was provided to me, things may take a bit longer than the regular shipping time frames.

I am stoked, got money burning a hole in my pocket! :D I guess the deciding factor will be what scale?

Dave is the body made from the White Strong Flexible Material, wondering if you have to seal it off with something like Superglue or something so it isn't course before primer?

Yeah, that body looks VERY good. And it's Huge too, since it's bigger scale. Details must be easier to make in this scale, right? You do awesome work, can't wait to see more pictures.
