Shapeways: Bring your creativity to life in 3DHow the pricing policy work? There are errors?

<![CDATA[Today I was uploading a test design to have an idea of pricing.<br />
After some tests I combined the same item in a single files as you <a href="http://www.shapeways.com/hisdesign?user_id=69014" target="_blank">can see here:</a> <br />
Now from my private area I see:<br />
1. the test1 model is 8.3x12.8x7.2 cm for a volume of 134cm3<br />
2. the test2 model is 5.3x41.8x7.2 cm for a volume of 133cm3<br />
<br />
As I can see the test2 model is smaller in volume than test1 but the price of test2 is very very high that test1 model!<br />
<br />
What is the policy in calculating pricing? The manner how I can combine items as importance in pricing determination?<br />
<br />
Thanks to all.<br />

<![CDATA[Yes, there is a discount for "dense" models that exceed a certain volume for Strong and Flexible material.<br />
See this article : <a href="http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/490-Significant-price-reduction-on-dense-models.html" target="_blank"> http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/490-Significant-price -reduction-on-dense-models.html</a><br />
More precisely, if your model is more than 20cm3 and if it is dense (that is: if the actual volume of the model is more than 10% of its bounding volume) then any extra cm3 after the 20th is half price.<br />
