Hi Harold,

you'll first need to export the file to a file format that we can handle: STL, VRML, X3D or Collada. After that you should be able to upload it.

Awesome sculpture !

Did you model it with Zbrush?

Your model wasn't ready for 3D printing - had the usual errors and WASN'T hollowed ...

I fixed it for you and hollowed it to a 1.5mm walls throughout the model (see bottom of the base for 3 holes that will enable the tech guys to clear all support material from the inside)

Oh.. and that hollowing process saved you $100 Smile
From $160 to $60 cost of printing in WSF

Great work !
