 And I have put together almost all of the shipments!

 Bad news though, somewhere in my spreadsheet I miscalculated the number of needed protective backs. I ordered 70 since my calculation said 60(not everyone ordered one and I wanted some extras), but I actually needed 80! So I'm ordering the remaining backs now, which means 10 random orders that ordered protective backs won't be able to ship for about 2 weeks. Which is how long the 3D prints take from Shapeways. So a small set back for a couple of orders, and unfortunately will have to ship in May. 

I'm going to start shipping out these packaged ones starting tomorrow. 

There is always something!

      @Peter Carlson - Thanks Peter! These are actually printed out of SLS Nylon, so they are designed too thin for an extrusion type printer. They may print but won't be very durable. That is why I get small stuff done at Shapeways.

      This is the material: https://www.shapeways.com/materials/strong-and-flexible-plastic

      You're welcome to check out the model and download the STL straight from the shapeways page if you want to try it: http://shpws.me/NPIn

      I'm trying to get shapeways to add them onto an order I recently placed, so maybe they can speed up the process.
