Just got this today!

It's my first order from Shapeways, and I was concerned about how thin the structure is, but it came out great! Diameter is 13 cm (5.1 in) so it's quite a nice size for a tabletop sculpture!

By the way, how do people typically markup their prices around here?

That's a pretty cool model - for added wow factor you could have the same printed with a ball inside the lattice tubing.

Markup is up to you, 30-200% is not uncommon, personally I go for 20-50% or sometimes more depending on the popularity of the model.

I hadn't thought of that! I was actually planning on threading a light through it, so I had to leave the inside open for this one.
