    I want to create a jeans button and I made together with the button maker the technical sketches.
    But this time I decided to give shape way a trial. So I need your help in getting the best results by creating the correct files to print

    1. as 3d PDF button but using as a surface of the button the surface of the skull attached in the other picture
    2. one wire frame option ( not sure if that can be printed )

    Print material - Stainless Steel or silver

    Please send me your offer including lead time, price and some links to your previous works.
    Any questions please use

    Many thanks

    Hi Patrick,

    When I open this file on my Mac I only see a white page. Could you provide other material? Also, it's not entirely clear what you're asking for..

    Bart.. the Windows PDF viewer allows 3d models.


    It might be interesting if Shapeways added PDF as one of the uploadable file types.
