I have been notified by Shapeways, that my order for Invase is "not glazable"

At the time of design and publication, not all details of the new material were known to me.

Unfortunately it seems I was too optimistic about the possibilities of this exciting new production method.

My sincere apologies to other buyers of this model. I will do my best to improve.
If your order for Invase was rejected, please contact me with your ordernr and orderline, and I will do my best to make it up.

In the spirit of sharing information : the strand thickness is 3mm and the "holes" slightly under.

And this is the result, that we all (but most of all me) may learn from this experience.

And again my apologies to the unlucky buyers.

I assume this is only the pre-glaze phase and the slits/holes have already gunked up.
So, back to the drawing board!

Cheers,

Virtox
