I've had a similar problem today. Loaded a model about eight hours ago. The "Automated Wall Thickness Check" is stuck on 'Loading', but ONLY on the Steel materials.

I rarely make rings with plating now (unless a customer requests it and after I have cautioned him/her). Right from the start when Shapeways introduced the plated s/steels I had this problem. Rings worn daily just have way too much abrasion.

Many people have tried this here. I have yet to see anyone say "x material is great for burning out of investment".

Does Shapeways print in a material known as PLA, which is essentially a biodegradable plastic that can be used in the lost wax process?

No, as PLA is typically used in FDM (filament-based) printing, which shapeways does not offer. (There appear to be a few research papers about selective laser sintering of PLA powder for biomedical applications, but no commercial supply of fine, homogeneous powder - probably much too hygroscopic for practical applications, and being biodegradable is probably not an advantage with the huge surface area of a powder)

These pieces arrived approx a week ago but they were so hard to capture in this material combination we'd had to wait for the sun to help out a bit :)

I strongly doubt pictures of home-printed fdm stuff would be appropriate here.
