shapeways materials

Post by mophius » Thu May 17, 2018 6:47 pm

Shapeways have renamed their materials.
What we used to call WSF is now White Natural Versatile Plastic.
WSP is now White Processed Versatile Plastic
FUD is now Smooth Fine Detail Plastic
There is no dark side of the moon really, matter of fact its all dark.

Because the word "versatile" makes the material sound more appealing and it takes away the word "flexible" which nylon is not. Sort of like how KFC changed its name because they didn't want to use the word "chicken."
