It seems that sandstone is the only material with a full color option. But I'm pretty hesitant to order sandstone to order this:
index.php?t=getfile&id=15388&private=0

So basically I'm wonder what is a way that I can get that design onto that model with a strong material. Is sandstone strong enough OR are does any shapies out there use custom sticker services or something? Thanks

How big is the model? If it's a minature I don't think it will pass the minmum wall thickness test...I'm having problems with this issue too...I'd like full color, but they only offer in sandstone...And I'd like some heft to my model which I don't know...until it will be printed...

Full Colour Sandstone Design Rules

Stick to the rules and it will probably print ok
Bend the rules and expect a few rejections before success.

It's not i want to bend the rules I just wish there was a way to put full color in plastics..so i could use the colors in 1mm thick walls instead of the 2mm thick walls in sandstone..which can significantly reduce the model in half...basically a color minature....maybe in the next printer version..

Well I need it to be a strong model with a moving part so I guess Get Strong and Flexible Polished and then a custom sticker. Thanks
