I created a full color sandstone model and it's over $400. I created the right size hole and it's about 13 cm wide. This seems like a crazy amount of money? What am I doing wrong. This is my first color sandstone model so far. I double checked on the size as I did see on the tutorials VRML might send it too big.

Please help

Thanks Ruby

I wonder if it's because it's not hollow? I am trying Meshlabs to hollow it out without much luck so far.

If it's not hollow, there's your problem. But, even if you hollowed it out, it'd run about $100.

Thanks your right! I hollowed it out and it's down to $40! Yea. I hope it passes inspection. For anyone curious on how I hollowed it out. I duplicated the model and then did a negative inflate in Zbrush. I polished it and then did a merge. The hole I cut out using booleans in C4D. Hope it works!
