3dprintingpricecheck.com has shut down on Sept 18, 2017.
I have created and maintained this website as a hobby project since 2012. In recent years, the time and effort required to maintain the project have exceeded the resources I am willing to dedicate to a side project. As a result, the service has been broken frequently and I have rarely responded to emails from users.
The choice between keeping a broken 3dprintingpricecheck.com that provides incorrect price estimates online, and shutting the site down has been straightforward.
Playing a small role in the 3D printing industry while it crossed the peak of the hype cycle has been exhilarating and educational. Even today, there is still plenty of work to be done towards the original goal of this project: Price transparency and comparability are still lacking in the 3D printing services market.
