I uploaded several versions of a model to cut down on the printing cost, but there always seems to be a price difference that I can't seem to clear up.
When I look in 'My Models' I see the price for a white strong & flexible print of that model comes at € 68.34 (shipping not included), but when I click on 'Edit Model' and look at the price it says € 56.48... So where is that € 11.86 price difference coming from?

Also, is there a way to check wall thickness through Shapeways? I do all my 3D modelling in Zbrush, and for now there isn't a feature to measure that, so I'm pretty much always guessing and hoping it gets green lit Smile

VAT as (assumed to be) appropriate for your delivery address.

Only in the sense that you can wait for the manual check that is done after you order your model (which might end with rejection). Your best bet is to download netfabb studio basic (free, cross-platform, a stripped-down version of what shapeways uses for checking/processing models) from netfabb.com and use its measuring tools.

Thanks! Looks like I've got 1.3mm walls.
I havn't really printed anything in Strong & Flexible plastic before. How flexible does it get exactly? Would 0.7mm still be solid? Or would it be squeeze-able?

I really appreciate the advice Smile
