My hobby is building model ships. Sailing shiops have all sorts of uintricut designs aroung the stern and bow, figurehead, etc.

Does it make more sense to get someone to model the design for 3d Printing (cost, quality etc)

Below are three links showing approximately the level of detail THe part I really need is the scrollwork,

Hi Ira,

The beauty of 3D printing details such as the scroll work or figures is that you then have them on file and can 3D print them in any material and in any size. You can also modify the design to specific requirements. Undercuts are not an issue in 3D printing as molds are not used.

If send me a picture of simple scroll work you would like modeled I will be able to give you an idea of design costs.
