I think that my previous post ( http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&&th=6 465&goto=35087#msg_35087) may have been in the wrong thread, so I'm starting a new one to deal with the issue.

It appears that changing a model to a co-creator changes the price of some of the materials. I have confirmed this by changing another model of mine from normal to co-creator and back. The prices were as expected when the model was normal and were inflated when co-creator. I have not been able to derive a relationship which would indicate how the prices are being modified. The increase does not appear to be a percentage or static value. The main oddity I see is that the co-creator prices are generally rounded to the a 5-cent boundary.

As an additional example (beyond what is posted in that other thread), the model I switched tonight went from ~$303 for stainless steel to $350. The heart ornament (my previous discovery) went from $40 to $50.

1. Is this behavior intentional?
1.a. If the behavior is intentional, is it documented anywhere?
1.a.1. If the behavior is not documented anywhere, why not? I have been generally pleased with Shapeways' communications - let's keep things like this in the open. Very Happy
1.a.2 If the behavior is documented somewhere, where is it?
1.b. If the behavior is not intentional, when will it be corrected?
