Hey guys,

We've been having some issues with bounding box for Strong & Flexible models (white, color, polished). The current minimums does not allow for really thin and flat items (think: pole structures, pendants). The reason is we ask for a minimum 2.5x2.5x.2.5mm bounding box so items don't get lost in the handling process. Now obviously, something with bounding box of 2x20x20mm bounding box would not get lost when sorting.

So we propose to implement a system where the bounding box as to add up to 7.5mm (similar to how we handle Ceramics and Full Color Sandstone) though each dimension has to be at least 0.7mm (the min wall thickness).

This should help handling while enabling more designs for you guys.

If there are no concerns, we'll implement this next week.
