Danz and John,

Being a big fan of Fluid Forms and as of recently Shapeways' geographical jewelry, I have to say that your talking negatively about a service that offers similar products as a means of promoting your own business is despicable.

You should give these people some credit, the models shown in the photographs look really cool! On www.fluid-forms.com I can't even find any jewelry for the countries of the world, never mind in steel or gold plated. And the small silver pendant of Styra that Fluid Forms offer is four times the price of equivalent silver country shapes available on Shapeway (follow the link in the post to see)!

Again, I love Fluid Forms and find their products beyond cool, but coming over here and and making unfounded claims about inferior quality of non-competing products is nothing more than a sign of bad morals.

Hi Herb,

Thanks for replying. I agree with your interjection.

The work is really nice and like the concept.
USGS has some great information and love all the projects that come out of it.

I hope people make and share more map projects in the future...
