    hi,
    I would like to print an object which has a part in vivid bright orange in glossy finish full color sandstone.
    I mean an orange color like in this "Orange Car V8" model:
    https://www.shapeways.com/product/XEC547G95/orange-car-v8?optionId=60843554&li=marketplace
    (i don't need the actual orange-fruit-like surface, I only need a simple uniform orange color).

    I tried to set different diffuse colors to my material e.g. RGB #ffb400, as in https://www.colorhexa.com/ffb400.
    But on Shapeways 3d view it always turns into light brown.
    I understand from the forums that Shapeways converts RGB to CMYK and I have to make it up by setting it lighter, but I could not find an RGB value that becomes orange.
    It only changes to lighter or darker tints of brown, or yellowish brown.

    I use Blender and export the file to Colada (dae) or x3d format for Shapeways.

    Can someone specify an RGB value that will work out?
