Unbelievably exciting! Well done! You just changed everything.

I'm working on pendants, how submit them to you for checking? I miss read your post and thought this was available to all right now. I'm very eager to try my hand at making jewelery.

Btw, how come Minion isn't in that list? Not only has he already been printed but you, yourself, showed him off on this blog not too long ago.

I've added the minion. Somehow it was not on our checked list. If you want to add a model to the metal gallery you have to have a Shop and then you have to email links to your model to
newmaterials (at) shapeways (dot) com.

Then we will check the model manually. This might take 2-3 days. So it is all a bit of a "by hand" process I'm afraid.

When I go to order I can only choose "Stainless steel polished shops". How do I order unpolished?

Hunter, we are only offering the polished at the moment. What are you making that you would prefer another finish?

see here

I ordered it when metal was first offered to shop owners and it came like this (I finally got around to posting it).

I like the model like that a lot, it looks rustic and organic somehow steampunk. I'll check if we can do the other finishings and when.
