I would be happy with a WSFUD .. White Strong and Flexible Ultra Detail :-) .. what controls the resolution for WSF? Is it the particulate size of the nylon powder - or the width of the laser beam?

I second a wax based material! As long as it was affordable. ($

Higher definition stainless steel, smaller fonts allowed.

I second the higher definition stainless steel that one of your competitor's uses - but without their ridiculous prices! Not only is more definition possible it also corrodes much less.

Stony Smith has the right idea.

I'd love to see FUD in a larger build volume than currently available or a material with the detail quality of FUD but a larger build volume; FD is too rough for the larger things I'd like to do.

You should add a material called: black strong, flexible polished
I want to buy the Nanolet for my ipod but people who buy it in regular black strong and flexible complain its very rough.
Therefore it would be nice to have a smooter alternative for models such as the product previously listed.

We are working on that right now...

A Shapeways storefront in New York for folks to buy popular pre printed designs. I'm visiting New York and I was in the Makerbot store today (Sunday). It was full of people. They were buying models, and getting themselves 3d scanned.
