I've discovered that there are no exchange possible from shapeways dealers, so is there any opportunity to exchange/trade anywhere?

What I mean is, is there any clearinghouse available for trading if what you purchased turns out to not be what you wanted? I now realize that there is no way to exchange my purchase for something else. The artist has not gotten back to me. If I have to, I suppose I could go on eBay and try to get some money out of the 1/700 SM. 79's I purchased. I just thought there'd be something on/in the shapeways "universe" to go that route.
Sorry for the confusion.

Ah right. Well we don't have a place for that yet, but feel free to start a forum thread and see how it goes!

I work here
You could also find forums that specialize in the item you bought. May be someone there that will take it off your hands rather than waiting for us to print it for them.
