Does Shapeways perform an extra step after printing? I'm just wondering how the wheels aren't printed attached to the car. I'm a newbie so I'd appreciate an explanation; maybe a technique I can use if I end up creating something.

What actual scale is this model? HO? I would buy a bunch if in 1/285 or 1/300 war gaming scale. I know of some others who would as well.

@DavidSun right that's cool jst wondering. @bakablah yeah i was told that the polished type of materials are put in tumblers for the polishing process which do smooth the result but sanding will be needed for standard types of materials here.

got this printed in Frosted ultra detail, result is pretty smooth! no need to perform any sanding!

@shariff I think if you want a smooth surface, you need to do a lot of sanding... Stat with 900, 1200, 1500, 2000, then 2500 grid sand paper. I got the paper from McMaster Carr. Printed surface will not be as smooth as injection molded parts. Sometimes secondary machining is needed to better control a surface flatness or roundness. The sanded particals are very fine and dirty... You might want to wear a protective mask. Happy sanding.

I've received one in Frosted Ultra Detail & it's perfect. Now recommended as a great example of 3d printing at small scale.

Got it -- I'll have another go then. Thanks for straightening that out. Also shapeways gave me a refund on my earlier issue.

@ChristianA @michaelharries Apparently, this model does not print well in Shapeways fabrication facility using "White/Black/Transparent detail". To avoid future problem, I am changing the material to "Frosted Ultra Detail" and "Frosted Detail".

@michaelharries Just want to make sure you have an awesome experience at Shapeways ;-)

@ChristianA I have, and will see what they say. To be fair to the designer, and the model, my post was sent in frustration, and it may be more of a manufacturing issue. I will update my comment accordingly.

@michaelharries Have you contacted customer service?

Very disappointed. Doors don't open, wheels don't turn - rather they fall off. Will be returning for a refund.
