I wouldn't say no minimum wall. Oxygen is 10e-10meters across, and It's not the largest element in the composition :-P

My print arrived and it looks spectacular! Just unbelievable clarity and lightness in the hand. I've never seen anything like it. Nice job Shapeways, way to keep pushing the envelope. I'll post photos in "It arrived" soon.

Awesome, I look forward to seeing them.

Please make sure you do not use a flash as it really destroys the details

You called our bluff, Michael Williams! I know it will be difficult to keep things over 10e-10 meters. Hang in there! =/

Dear Nancy,
read your report. Interesting, as I'm looking for someone, who is able to print me a certain prototyping in a clear material, like as glass full transperant.
If you know how or someone who can manufakture parts out of such an material, please let me know, I can mail you a "stl-file" of the part. Size is, about 100 mm length, 52 mm wide and 38 mm high. It's a kind of cover.
Thank you.
Kindly regarding
