Hi. So I have this model of a doll I made in blender and I'm having issues uploading the .stl files to the site. Any suggestions? I've attached one component of the doll, the left hand, one unit is one meter. Thanks!

  • Attachment: LeftHand.stl
    (Size: 54.79MB, Downloaded 20 time(s))

Anything's possible.

Your file is over one million polygons. Shapeways only excepts files under one million polygons. Try decimating to 999k and re-upload.

Other than that I see no issues with the file. Nice job making a nice even shell of it! Does Blender have make hollow command or did you do that manually?

It always was. It always was because somethingness cannot spawn from nothingness. And in the was of the past there is the forever of the now. Only now. Only now and nothing new, for anything new would add to the infinite, yet there can only be one infinite. Only one. The universe is only becoming something new in the delusion of our minds. This delusion that makes life worth living in our perceived universe becoming.

The triangle count is higher than Shapeways upload limit of 1 million triangles. The hand has 1.1 million.
