Hello everyone !

I would like to know how you design your models printed in Sandstone.
I found this material amazing but I have no clue how I can make one.

I use Solidworks 2010 to design my creations but how can I apply colors or textures on them ?

Thanks for the help !!!!

Haven't a clue about Solidworks, but Google does Wink
See - SolidWorks Help Appearances Mapping PropertyManager

And you might find more info in Shapeways Tutorials
