Hi There,
How do i specify printing orientation for my models? Because the printing orientation does really affect the quality of the output, i know this because i printed these models with other services before. Basically i want it to be printed by the Y axis.I have kept the bounding box as small as i can.

Also,
does shape-ways offer WSF dyed and polished materials?
Seems like the polished version only comes in white?

I work here
Right now there is not a way to specify orientation. It is up to the operator at this point.

Nancy is working to get the dyed WSF available in polished also, but right now it is not an option.

great thanks for the reply.
When do you think the polished materials will be available?
