Quality control issues bench Gibbage 3D cases, there's no joy in Mudville tonight

Gibbage Cases were supposed to be a new 3D printed cases for the HTC 8X Windows Phone and eventually for the Nokia Lumia 920. The cases were uniquely designed mainly to offer surface protection to the 8X and 920 from scratches. Plus they are kinda cool looking.

We were slated to receive a review unit here shortly but just got the news from the Gibbage Case creator that he's having to cancel any orders and halt production due to apparent quality control issues with his printing service, Shapeways.

Hopefully, Gibbage Cases can find a reliable, reasonably priced 3D printing service and we'll see these cases offered in the near future.  You can follow along in the discussion on Gibbage Cases' development and offer any design suggestions, should another printer be found, here in this Windows Phone Central Forums discussion.
