I *might* have finally had some success with painting a model in Meshlab and uploading it, although I'm still testing...

BUT what I really want to be able to do is paint my model in ZBrush since the masking-by-cavity is really handy when it comes to nice painting. However, I have NO idea how to get the model prepped for upload to Shapeways when painted. I can't even find a way of exporting the UV's (if that's what I need to do) and Zbrush doesn't export to VRML format.

Has anyone had any success with this and give me a few pointers?

I answered my own question: Get ZBrush 4 - works much better with a plug-in for 3D printing exporting.
