Hi, he ordered it in frosted ultra detail material.
Both material has the same level of detail, but the extrem detail is smoother.
So if you want to paint it, the ultra detail is smooth enough, but if you want to leave it unpainted, you should go for the extremely detail.
I'm sorry to hear that. 3D printing is more affordableevery year,but is still quite expensive.
