I've been hit with a bunch of rejected models problems recently with customers choosing WSF polished. On the materials page, it says 0.2 mm embossed is fine, but 0.5 mm is needed for readable text. Fine, none of my models have text, let alone text that needs to be readable. I've had models printed out with 0.42 mm embossing, and decided that they gave details that were TOO prominent - e.g the vertical bars on this 1:144 scale truck running down the rectangular box behind the cab.

Now I've been told they won't print out anything with less than 0.5 mm detail, despite the materials page clearly saying the limit is 0.2 mm, and previous experience showing 0.42 is *more* than enough to withstand polishing.

Which is annoying to say the least. Almost as annoying is being told (admittedly in a very polite manner!) to redesign the models. 50 models don't redesign themselves at the drop of a hat...
