stonysmith, are you sure about point 1? I don't see one triangle difference between what I upload and what I see in the 3D tools. The fact that it only happens *sometimes* may point to shapeways thin wall autorepair function? For that the models are turned into voxels, thickened where needed and then turned into a mesh again. I imagine that can lead to loss of smoothness.

and also this :-)
