I love this material! My first pendant arrived printed in Raw Brass. Can't wait to try the Raw Bronze as well... I should add that this has had no post-processing done to it - i.e. I have not polished it any further.

Edit: I learned from Shapeways recently that the first run of Raw Brass did receive minor polishing, so future ones wouldn't in fact look like this.

Are the rougher areas intentionally patterned like that? That looks nice!

Thanks, yes, they are. I have another one, not yet printed, where everything you see textured here is removed leaving holes everywhere.

This looks FANTASTIC!!! But a part of me really wants to see those holes filled in with an enamel of some type. Be it an Epoxy resin, or actual glass enamel.. Maybe a nice Red or a Royal-blue.,

Oh, yes, I know exactly what you mean. I have just the thing for that, too! Hmm, something else to do now!

BTW, I had to edit my original post after I learned that Shapeways first run of Raw Brasss did receive some minor polishing...
