There is never any vertical exaggeration in TinyMtn models.
This TinyMtn model is in Shapeways' "Ceramic" material, which consists of 3D-printed clay with binder, which is then hand-glazed and fired. When you receive the model it will be ready for display. "Ceramic" models are understandably brittle, even more than either the "Sandstone" or "White Strong and Flexible" models. You can get it wet, leave it outside, and you don't need to seal it. Read more about this beautiful material here.
TinyMtn models have been optimized for specific materials, and are not offered in other materials for strength or cost reasons. If you need one in another material, please click the links above or contact us and we'll try to accommodate your request.
