Another good plugin to get for Sketchup is "Solid Inspector". It will identify any and all holes in your object, stray lines, and other anomalies not readily seen. You can get it from the extension warehouse.

Same problem still exists in May 2016. My shop inventory has a bunch of items for which I have already deleted the models and which I have no desire to keep.

To make it smoother, increase the number of facets.
Since (most) of the Shapeways materials are not food-safe, it might be best to print the item in wax, and then use the traditional lost-wax casting method to produce it in some other material.

I don't understand why it would say that the item is too large, unless you're uploading it with the wrong units.

Hello Tony,

Thanks for reacting.
The picture is a low resolition version. About 60 parts per 360 degrees. The final version is 150 parts per 360 degrees.

I'll find out why the lost wax method is giving an error.
