There seems to be a lot of excess material on the part.

The model is

Hi Ray,

Do you mean the "Blop" of material on the right side?

Could you please sent a mail and if possible a "better image" to service(at)shapeways(dot).com

I'll make sure it get's looked into.

Cheers Peter Paul

Yes, the blop of material. I tried scraping it a bit, thinking it might just be some residue, but it's not.

I can take a better picture tomorrow. I couldn't find the "good" digital today camera so I had to use the old worn out one Smile

Hello Ray,


Obviously something went wrong during cleaning. I will arrange a re-production and ship it to you a.s.a.p. When we send the model you will receive a new confirmation via UPS with the tracking number of the shipment.

Sorry for the inconvenience!


Regards,
Frank.

I got the replacement part today, and it is awesome. Far better than the original.

There was some powder in the 4 small holes, but that's to be expected, since they are quite small. I used a paper clip to clean them out. I'll probably run the correct sized drill bit through them later.

I guess I need to get a nice little light box for taking small photos. The photo turned out ok, but could be better.

Thanks!
