I was wondering if Shapeways supports printing an object inside another object when the 2 object's volumes do not overlap at all. For example see the attachment.

In this crude picture I have a sphere which is placed inside a box made up of only edges. So basically the sphere is trapped inside the edges of the box, but the box has no faces so part of the sphere could go outside the box until it hits the edges.

So if I were to model this with a sphere and a box I constructred in one 3D model, would Shapeways accept it and print the sphere inside the boxe's edges so that when the 3D print arrived I would have a trapped sphere?

Finally, can this be done with separate colors ... one for the box one for the sphere?
