Hi Shapeways,

You have a 500.000 triangle upload limit probably for a good reason. Electronic storage space costs money. So I understand why you would stimulate your shop owners to make efficient STL renderings.

Having that said ...
How can I go beyond that annoying 500.000 triangle limit?

I have several viable puzzle designs that simply don't fit under 500.000 triangles, for example Big Bolder and Void 6x6x6.

Currently, I have only two options.
1) Suggest to the customer to buy from me directly (as Shapeways can handle 500.000+ triangles)
2) Split the puzzle over multiple models and give the customers some complex instructions how many of which model to buy to obtain the parts for a single puzzle.
Both options are cumbersome to the customer.

Can you provide a better solution, please?

Thank you!
