|Key factors influencing price? [message #41169] Wed, 04 January 2012 05:26 UTC
Hi. Recently I uploaded a model, after processing the lowest price quote was ~$800. A few relevant factors:|
The model is 14 inches high.
The average wall thickness is 4 mm.
The model is high poly - 34240 verts.
So my question is this: given all the different variables how do I reduce the printing cost without losing the high fidelity? I'm not even sure what is causing the price to be so high.
Is it the high poly count? Is it the relatively thick parts of the wall? Is it the fairly big size?
Which variable is the best one to focus on to dramatically lower the price without sacrificing fidelity? My budget is ~$100.
