I am wanting to print the hood ornament from a Rolls-Royce Motor Car in Premium silver to scale.

In places the ornament has quite thin walls, 1mm at the smallest point. I have two questions to anyone who has any experience with this printing method:

1. Will it be possible to polish the item smooth as shown in some of the jewellery examples

2. Are 1mm wall thicknesses an issue?

It's obviously quite expensive to get it done in Premium silver so I would appreciate any advice before I go ahead with it.
