This came out really nicely in stainless steel with "antique bronze glossy" finish. It's a steampunk style pendant, hence the cog teeth. I was worried that the inner teeth might fuse together since the minimum gap is only a millimeter, but it seems to have come out fine!

I always love steampunk designs. The slightly rough finish seems to work quite well for it, don't you think?

Yes, the grain interacts with the changing curvature in really interesting ways.

I like it and it's a nice workaround to the "no moving parts" design limitations of s/s...

Here is a slightly smaller version in silver. It's almost too shiny! They left a casting sprue on which I'll have to file off, but I have mostly hidden it in the photos. I might try polishing it as well.

Hey Henrey,

could you mail a pic of the sprue to me? (bart@shapeways.com). We can use it to improve our quality. Does it trouble you, having it on there?

Hi Bart, I emailed some pictures. Hopefully it won't be too hard for me to file the sprue down. It would trouble me to have it on there as a finished product.
