Wrong. Once again you have chose to feature an item that does NOT show the actual printed item. #6 the GLaDOS Ring is a computer RENDER. This does a great disservice to those members who actually pay out good money to get their models printed and try their best to promote them...

Hi Glen,

These are the 10 most popular items as per favorites and wishlists, if there was an item that had only a grey-scale render I would have included that as well, but as we can see the images seem to have an impact on popularity.
Yes the Glados Ring is a render but it has been printed many times, it would be great if the designer updated the page with photos.
It is hard to tell, but Bathshba's Gyroid is also a render, and it has been printed many many times.
Looking at the Clip-it image, it is hard to tell whether that too is a render or photograph, but I do trust that the designer has made sure his design works as intended.
