Hello everybody,

I am currently working on my first 3D print in color! Smile When I render the image with textures in my 3D software (C4D)
the textures seem to be flawless. But in the preview of Shapeways I see some black seams wich are not supposed
to be there. (see attachment).

My question is: Will the black seams appear on my printed model or is this just a flaw of the preview of Shapeways?
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Cheers,
Peter

Thanks for the quick response Smile I haven't been able to find a concrete answer in the conversation though.
Is it save to conclude that the seams and speckels are just a problem in the render quality of shapeways?
Or will the seams also be visible on the 3D print itself?

Thanks alot!

Yes, I am confident that these specks are only in the preview image - and they would probably be well below the resolution
limit of the printer anyway.
