Well, I ordered a lot http://www.shapeways.com/model/641237/wheel-of-life-pendant- dharmchakra.html?li=productBox-search
Shipment 634214 from 18FEB2013
Received on time.
But just take a look ... feeling that this was done with an ax. Whether a defect, or....?
I thought I will purchase It for a gift, but It seems now that it is just impossible to use it anyhow. Trash only.
I really appreciate any feedback.
Thanks!

I work here
It looks like you ordered in gold plated stainless. Which if you look at the render of the item you ordered, I can see where you would be disappointed if you were expecting that quality. To look the closest to that detail in a metal you should order in silver. The best example of what you are seeing is this image here http://static1.sw-cdn.net/rrstatic/img/materials/ss-fonts.jpg
Where silver has higher accuracy and detail. Feel free to email service about your displeasure with the model.

Thanks for your answer. Thats correct, quality of details of gold plated pendalion is very poor. Maybe I should reorder in silver, thanks again.

Hi,
I would like to suggest to add pictures of the real printed object instead of a render! Especially if the item is for sale.

Maybe shapeways should change their policy a bit and require photorealistic renders to be clearly marked as such
if the object in question is offered for sale.

Yep! By the good render quality tody, its even for me, sometimes hard to decide if it is an render image or a photo.

Sometimes yes there are great and realistic render, but in this case is pretty clear that it is a render and not the real object photo. As a designer, I will never sell an object without adding clear pictures of the final product, I might use a render only for a project that is not for sale; customers must to see how looks the real object ; this is my first rule if I want to sell something.

Yep, been in this discussion a few times... In an ideal world we should put up photo's of actual printed models for sale, but that simply isn't possible unless you have an overflowing bank account. Most of my renders are marked as such and I think that's all we can ask. I do agree for the casual buyer here that renders could be VERY deceiving leaving disappointed customers.

Hi Glenn,

I see your point, personally I think that, as a customer, I will never order, something showed just with a render or a virtual picture. As you said, you are marking your render as such and this is perfectly ok, customer knows. In the case above there is nothing mentioning something like "please note that this is a render and not a real object's picture". Maybe it is just a question to put the right infos.
