I've been having a lot of fun in sculptris but was wondering if there was a way to take a painted bump map and bake it on, altering the geometry so that Shapeways can print the texture?

I've been making head sculpts and the current head has a mask that requires a subtle texture.

Short answer no, long answer yes. As far as I know, there is not a way to export an obj that incorporates the UV map. But I did find an easy work around with Blender http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=4080 8&#msg_40808
