Hi all,

I have a question about the materials I get when I call the 'getPrinters' function.

The xml output is roughly the following (without all the namespaces):

<item type="Material">
<id type="integer">31</id>
<title type="string">Gold Plated Matte</title>
<description type="string"/>
<base_color nil="true"/>
<specular_color nil="true"/>
<shineness nil="true"/>
<opacity nil="true"/>
<translucency nil="true"/>
<refractive_index nil="true"/>
<startup_cost type="float">0</startup_cost>

Seems to me there is a lot of information missing per material, currently I'm making an app to let users create 3d models for shapeways and would like to have the following options:

- base_color (in order to preview the materials color on the model)
- startup_cost
- cost_per_cm3

It would be nice to give the user an insight in the costs based on material and size selection, before uploading the entire model.

Is this possible?

Kind regards,

Sjoerd van den Berg.
