This is a doillie model with a lot of negative spaces like holes and I would like to know if I am able to get all the details.

What material do you want to print this in?
How large is the object, and how large are the holes?

It was about 20x8 cm and size of holes are more than 1mm. I would like print in white plastic or ceramic.

20 centimeters?? That's going to be very expensive.

for the number of holes you have, the price will be around 1/3 of that cost, but still pricey.

If you were wanting only 8mm thick, that'd be much more reasonable: (again, about a third of this cost because of the holes)

For everything except ceramic, 1mm holes are plenty big enough.. for ceramic they need to be 3mm.
