Hi lormac,

Welcome to Shapeways! Smile

Shapeways is a venue for people to upload their 3D models and have them 3D printed. I should think that your 1:72 scale soldier would be printable in Shapeways Frosted Ultra Detail.

You will need to upload a 3D model yourself or put a shout out in the Modeller Needed sub-forum if you need someone to create the model.

Hope this helps.
Paul

thanks, but, would it be possible to rip some models from a game and then get the textures too?

I'm sure it's possible. 1) game models are meant to look nice, so usually aren't printable. and 2) shouldn't be done without the game makers permission as it is their IP.
