update: cards, production and possible plastics issues
here's an update on 3 things:
I'm done packing and stamping all the cards! I already shipped almost half of them and will finish shipping them all this week. I hope some of you are stamps collectors! (see picts below)
Polished Metal Production
as mentioned in the previous update, Shapeways has recently changed their minimum requirements for details when 3D printing in polished metals. so I had to deepen the orbits and order new prototypes to make sure they were fine. and they are! so, I'm starting the production again when I left off: polished metals.
when ordering the new prototypes, I got all the plastic variations and got 2 with a ton of dust in the orbits and holes, making the Mementos look like a flat disk really. this didn't happen when I got my prototypes the first time. but using a toothbrush and needle, it's easy to remove the dust and clear the orbits and planets.
a few backers said they were disappointed by their plastic Mementos but without explaining why or sharing pictures. now, I'm thinking that might have happened to them. so, if it happened to you, try to clean them or send me some pictures at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see if Shapeways agrees to send a replacement even though it's been a while since the plastic Mementos shipped.
