For people who don't know the difference between Ball Jointed Dolls (BJDs) and articulated action figures, consult DenofAngels.com. If your doll doesn't meet DoA's definition of a BJD, it can't be listed in their Marketplace or even appear in various conventions. I am 99% sure that Shapeways can't print a BJD directly, because the only material allowed is museum quality resin. However, creating a mold for pouring resin doll parts is a perfect application for 3D printing, as long it's not taken from a scan of someone elses's doll. That comes under the broad category of "recasting," and there are people who are pit bulls when it comes to defending the rights of the small artisan.

I've received prints that were not sufficiently polished about a year ago.. it happens. It looks like they also didn't clean the part well enough, which is why the dye did not absorb into the actual part. I would contact customer service. :)

Sorry I don't think I was clear before.

Or perhaps I am also misunderstanding what you are saying.

In regards to the .35mm I believe that is the width of a character span. Not the over all height of the text.

I am hoping to use 1.25mm high text, which I have seen on other rings. Does that make sense?

You can send the files to me in a personal message and I'll take a look. Make sure though that you have your invention protected. Don't send me anything proprietary. I don't sign NDAs because I don't like to put limitations on myself.
