Pics can help explain alot, but sometimes looking at the model file is the only way to solve a problem. Post a link to the file. Folks here are honorable enough to help, not steal your creation.

A good sanity check is to open your exported file in MeshLab (http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/ - free, open source software). If it shows up correctly, then there may be an issue with the Shapeways renderer. If it fails to show correctly, then there's a problem with the export of your file.

Cheers,

Bart

Shapeways had the same dimensions for length and width as the original had. Was just in cm, not mm. The reason the height was off was caused by the logo sitting on top of the hexagon mesh. Nice model by the way.Smile

I'm glad you've got it all figured out. So was a re-export from MeshLab the solution? Maybe there was something odd going on with the original Sketchup export that our Mesh Medic software tried to fix, but failed. (like inverted normals or non-manifoldness in the leaf).
