Hello again!

I uploaded this Display Box I made, I was thinking it was only going to cost about $10.00, but to my suprise its $150.00+, I obviously did something wrong when modeling it hahaha

I have read a few topics about this but I would like help with my particular objects so I can figure it out better. I am new to 3D modeling.

Heres the link:

Thanks

It seems that you've got the lower half of the box as a solid area. You need to hollow that out to bring the price down.

But, even if you do, it's not going to be $10..

haha, well, I'm sure it will be a ways from $150!

How would I go about hollowing it out? I use Blender and I also have Netfabb basic

And thanks for the reply!

*EDIT*
Ahh, seeing your link... I think I'll just scrap the idea of a display box hahaha!

One of the mods can close this Smile
