After having enjoyed using Thingiverse for many years, it is time to choose a different platform for dropping my files and downloading nice things from others.
For about a year I used Thingiverse against my better judgment, hoping that there would be an update of the website that would make everything workable and fast again, but it does not seem that this update will ever come, so then it's time to look for alternatives.
I am not here to advertise one of these alternatives, I would not like that, but I will leave Thingiverse myself and in about a month, I will also remove my files on my account.
People on Thingiverse, thank you for allowing me to enjoy your designs and thank you for giving my designs nice and useful criticism. People from Thingiverse themselves, thank you for giving me all these great years on this website. You have made it possible for me to develop with 3D printing and you have done that without charging me a cent, my thanks for this.
Without Thingiverse I would certainly not have got as far with my hobby as I am now, and that is why it hurts my heart to leave this website, but it is no longer sustainable to sometimes have to wait more than an hour for a download or a page refresh. This is 2020, but here it feels like 1983, when I was still playing with a 2400 Baud modem.
Thanks to everyone, and see you soon ...

Now I'll be damned.
Willing to take all my things down, all of a sudden, Thingiverse started working again.
I leave my files here for now, but I won't upload anything new.
Again, thanks for following me and sharing your files.
