Looks like I need to give this one a serious overhaul to bring the price down a lot.

I have been just testing the waters with some uploads... any suggestions on best practices?

Thanks!

Yeah, Definitely try hollowing your model. That should bring the price down a TON.

Btw, what software are you using?

Thanks for the tips and links to really get this process refined! I am new to the whole 3d printing. I am going to work on the model and see where I can get the price down to this weekend.

I have been using 3D Studio Max for several years for my modeling- I have used Maya, Cinema, Vue and a few others but have kept up more with Max over the years.

I am excited to get some of my concepts printed Smile

What a great site and community you all have here... Thank you!
