Hi.
Im a 3d artist from California.
i just added my first piece to my shop here on shapeways http://www.shapeways.com/shops/lgdesigns

I have a few questions regarding detail.
Will this print with all the detail? or will it all get lost during print with the white strong and flexibel material? And is the silver option printed in wax then cast in silver? Aslo if anyone has any questions or suggestions about the model please feel free to ask.

thanks....

Cool design.

At that size, those details are going to get lost with WSF. I would recommend either making the whole thing about double the size, or print it in FUD to try to retain those details.

Yes, Silver is done thru lost wax casting. They print the model in wax, and then cast it using traditional methods.
