I uploaded a simple model [http://www.shapeways.com/model/558552/turning-tool-v1.html] which as far as I can tell respects the design rules for FUD. In particular, the model has walls of 0.4 mm thick, and does not exceed the maximum dimensions.

Yet, FUD is not available as a material choice. WSF and others are. How can I find out what requirement my model violated?

Thanks! Obviously, I'm new to this, so any suggestions are much appreciated.

Edit: after some playing around I discovered that there seems to be some kind of minimum size -- adding some components to the part causes FUD to become available, even though the wall thicknesses etc. have not changed.
