Hi Smile
Is there a max number of polys per model for upload to print?
I'm creating a piece in zbrush, and its pushing 4 million polys.
Thanks in advance!

Yes, the limit is one million triangles (not polygons) per model uploaded to Shapeways. If you absolutely need more than that you can use this trick: http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/564-How-To-3D-Print-H igh-Polygon-Models-with-Shapeways.html

thanks, i'll try that out.
but i don't understand:

"the volume of the cube needs to be the same actual material volume, no bounding box."

what does that mean?
