Picked these up yesterday. the shipping costs had gone up.. so me and a friend decided to pool in and order our prints together so that we could split the shipping costs. The package arrived a week back, but i was so busy at work and other stuff.. i could only go pick it up last night.

The design is from a "Crusader"robot i was designing a while back.. heres the initial sketch
index.php?t=getfile&id=16049&private=0
,modelled and rendered in blender
index.php?t=getfile&id=16050&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=16051&private=0
and final images of it in shapeways' Stainless Steel and Translucent Detail materials
index.php?t=getfile&id=16052&private=0
index.php?t=getfile&id=16053&private=0

If you flat sand the faces of the "cross" this design will really jump. Easy to do: 240 grit wet/dry metal finishing paper, stuck down to a dead flat plate, like a sheet of glass. 15 minutes or less each side.
POW!

Very much liking the Stainless print!
And to agree with GlenG, a polish on the smooth areas would really make your Steampunk Crusader pendant shine - no flat polishing though, check out my ring in the steel advanced rules to see what can be done with a rotary dremel type tool.
