Hello shapeways community Smile
Last summer I printed a 2D logo as a 3D pendant. Now I'd like to use shapeways for a real 3D object for the first time.
But, as it is my first try and one of my first 3D modells ever, I'm a little scared that it might not turn out the way I hope.
The attached file contains a lucky pig. I'd like to have it printed in stainless steel, but it shouldn't be too expensive, so I thought of a height of about 2 cm. My questions are:
1. Is that size possible, so that there will remain enough details and the text won't be destroyed?
2. Is the file okay or are there any errors? (Should I have merged the parts with a boolean modifier before exporting the stl from Blender?)
