Chinese New Year is coming up and will affect the prices and lead times for manufacturing custom parts.

As a distributed manufacturing network, 3D Hubs utilizes a global network of Manufacturing Partners to offer our customers the most competitive prices and lead times.

Due to Chinese New Year, our overseas Manufacturing Partners will have reduced capacity from the 18th of January until the 15th of February.

This will temporarily reduce the total production capacity in our global network. Local capacity will remain available but is expected to be in high-demand, increasing lead-times and pricing for custom parts.

As of the 15th of February, our pricing and lead times will be back to normal.

The table below summarises the important dates:

Date Production status
18th - 31st January 2019 Reduced overseas capacity (longer lead times and higher pricing)
1st - 17th February 2019 No overseas capacity, local manufacturing only (longer lead times & higher pricing)
18th February 2019 Normal production capacity resumes globally
