I wanted some thoughts on printing this item in stainless steel.

http://www.shapeways.com/model/866170/tfp-the-omega-keys.htm l?materialId=23

As you can see it is approx 2.156cm x 0.734cm x 4.16cm, with many small details. I have had no issue printing this in WSF.

I notice that stainless steel has a tolerance of 2mm and some parts are very small. Do you forsee any big issues with this model being printed with this level of detail.

Or if someone has done something of a similar size in steel, how did it turn out?

Thank you for your time.
