Hello, all. I am very new to shapeways, and I have a possible client that has a question about the dimensions of her product, and I didn't know how to answer her. Long story short, she is making a dress that is going to be 84cm x 57cm x 25cm, but it will only cover the front of a person. Something like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/280419514269638942/ but more of a floral design than a skeletal design. She wanted to know how much it would cost to make via shapeways, but I didn't know how to answer that. If anyone can help, please let me know. I'm thinking she might want to make it with strong, flexible plastic, how much would something like this cost? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Short answer: Very likely more than you want to spend.

To give you an example: the hat below uses 184cm3 of material.
It has a 7" internal diameter and would cost about $275.00 to print at Shapeways.

Thank you so much, stonysmith! I will tell the client the bad news, but it's better to know now than later. Again, thank you.
