Hi all I am new , and need help whit my model .|
I wish print a model in glazed ceramic but really don't know how to solve density problem .( I don't understand what i have to do ) if someone could help me thank you .

... from http://www.shapeways.com/design-rules/ceramics|
"Minimum Density of Model: Material to Bounding Box Ratio should be greater than 5%.
"Material" means your models volume.
As far as I can see, your table1 has a volume of 107,34 cm³.
"Bounding Box" is the smallest (virtual) oblong box your model would fit in.
You can see the bounding box dimensions on the models page.
table1's bounding box is...
cm: 13.84 w x 11.32 d x 14.4 h
--> 1786,03 cm³
5% of that are 89,3 cm³
table1's volume (107,34 cm³) is greater than 5% of its bounding box volume (89,3 cm³).
--> no density problem
... but it seems that your model has 8 border egdes which might be a problem.
