Ensure your model can be cleaned
Hard to clean models will be rejected, here's why. During printing, the cavities in your model will be supported by a waxy material which must then be removed before we ship it. While a good deal of this material comes off without any issues, the rest must be scraped away manually with a scalpel. If you design a model with cavities that make such scraping difficult, then unfortunately we cannot produce this model.
A good rule of thumb is that if it can't be cleaned with a scalpel the size of a ball point pen, it will most likely be rejected and require a redesign.
Transparent Detail is translucent, but can be clearer when polished
The Transparent Detail will actually arrive with a translucent finish. With hand polishing, however, a yellow transparency can be achieved. Please note, this material is brittle so the thinner you make the model, the more difficult it will be to polish without breaking your model.
