Hi guys,

I'm pretty new to 3d designing, just doing it as a hobby. I do most of my work on Google Sketchup - any suggestions for better software?

I've designed a ring that has a groove with a ball that can roll around freely inside (somewhat similar to TerraCotta's design: http://www.shapeways.com/model/52936/). I've had problems before where smaller parts of my design either don't print at all, or get lost in the printing. Would a ball with a diameter of 1mm print (if inclosed in the ring)?

Also, I would like to print it in stainless steel, but would that work?

Best Regards,
