Hi! I was really excited when I found this website, and I'm trying to print my first order. It is a dog head, with a polygon count of 450,000. Most of the polygons are quads, and if I export to STL, then it triangulates them. So I am exporting to X3D instead, because it retains the quads. The problem is, when I upload it, it says the polygon count is above the limit, when it's 450,000. Does the checker count quads as two polygons(triangles) or does it count a quad as one polygon?

The attached file is the .x3d that I am trying to upload.

Thanks for helping me solve this problem.
