One Million Triangles


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

FINALLY!!!!! Starting to approach the poly limits of other competitors. And yes, I could used about another 500k, but this limit-raise will allow me to begin sending models to shapeways again(its been a long time now). Thank you all :-)

Thanks for the feedback D. Curious to learn, what are the limits you experience elsewhere? Let us know.

Just in time!
I was going to order my first model last week, but i was having problems to reduce the number of triangles that much without lose the detail.
with a million will be really higher detail.
Thanks Shape ways, going to order my model to night!

I'd made the mistake of tailoring a "mathy" model to 500kF, but forgetting that I was using quads. On upload it went from just under 500kF to just under one MF, due to triangulation. Impasse.

Now that the limit's 1M, it's uploaded and ordered! :-)

Sounds great! By the way, you should totally make a tee-shirt with that on it.
