    On a scale of 1-10, how does the detail level of the Processed Versatile Plastic compare to Detail Plastic?

    I've never ordered anything but the Detail Plastic but the model I'm looking at now is nearly $200 after the last round of changes by Shapeways and I'm hoping I can bring that down some.

    It's not so much the surface finish, as it's about the question.. can your model survive the polishing?
    If your model has large flat surfaces, it will polish well, but if the polishing stones can't get into the openings, it won't polish very well. I'd say the flat polished surface is probably 8/10, but the unpolished areas are more like 4/10.

    It also has a lot to do with how big the object is.
