Sculpteo’s New Shipping Option Takes the Stress Out of Waiting for Your 3D Prints to be Delivered

Waiting_8There are few things that can aggravate the way that waiting for a time-sensitive delivery can aggravate. It’s a proven fact that the more important it is that your item be delivered on time, the more it will be delayed – whether it’s a Christmas present, a wedding gift or a crucial part for the workplace. More than likely, at one point or another you’ve found yourself standing at the mailbox on December 23, wishing bitterly that you’d chosen the expedited shipping option all those weeks ago, five dollars extra or not.

3D printing service bureaus are no exception to the delivery roulette game. Like anything else you order online, you generally have the option to have your 3D printed part delivered in “five to ten business days,” “two to three weeks,” or some other frustratingly vague estimated future. When you’re ordering something for professional purposes, this can be especially maddening, as it can mean the difference between a job being completed on time and being delayed indefinitely while the customer gets increasingly more irritated.

3D printing giant Sculpteo understands your pain, and is introducing a new shipping option that will take the waiting and stress out of ordering 3D prints.

“We’ve all been there,” the company sympathizes. “Your distributor wants the prototype right now, your customer needs to see the new features on the new model before placing an order, or you just ran out of time. Help is here.”

If it’s not shipped within that time, you’ll get your money back – not just the shipping cost, but the cost of the part itself. It’s not quite overnight delivery, but it’s about as close as you can get when you’re dealing with something that needs to be 3D printed and finished on demand.

Express Production will be available only for non-polished white plastic parts, which normally carry an average processing time of two to three days before they are shipped. Compared to many 3D printing services, that’s not a bad turnaround time, but Express Production eliminates any uncertainty about how long you’ll have to wait, tearing at your hair and constantly refreshing the screen of your computer in hopes that that shipping confirmation will appear. To quote Tom Petty, the waiting is the hardest part, but Sculpteo is willing to make it a little bit easier. Discuss in the Faster 3D Printing Deliveries from Sculpteo forum over at 3DPB.com.
