I downloaded your attachment, there were 2 models in that .skp file. On was all white and one with colors. Im assuming that I was supposed to use the colored one, which had some spots where it was missing a wall. What do I do?

Thanks for your tip.

I found this video after searching in the direction you've prompted and I think I have found the solution.

For some strange reason, even using the netfabb cloud tool to turn it into one part, Shapeway still recognizes it as multiple parts. So I think having them as combined solid bodies should be the only way to get it working with the Shapeway website. Thanks.

I'll have to try this when I have more time.

That likely means you have a gap between the parts.
Even if it's .001 mm - it's still a gap.

If you'd like, PM the file to me and I'll take a look.

I am scanning my wife's sculptures using 123DCatch or other software that takes a bunch of 2-D photos and makes a 3-D model.

Doing it using a still camera is time-consuming. Then I thought, what about a VIDEO camera? It takes 30 frames per second, and you would just pick the "good frames" that you want to put in. The photography could be done pretty quickly.

However, what do I look for in a video camera that could do this well? I need something that can get tack-sharp focus quickly as I walk around the sculpture, and has decent resolution.
