Today I got my first two items from shapeways, eagerly awaited prints of the ORION from the german TV series "Raumpatrouille". I ordered both in the same material, "transparent detail". Although that material is more textured than I thought one of them is ok (the right one in the pictures), but the other one unfortunately not. Please look at the pictures: The left one is much less transparent, has a much lower resolution (at least this is how the surface looks, much more texture than the right one), in addition to that it is MUCH weaker than the right one (you can bend the rim of the disc very easily, while the right one is much stronger, and the "antennas" sag because of their own weight), it has a VERY strong and bad chemical smell and is very, VERY sticky. My fingers become sticky, too, when I touch it. So I guess either the wrong material was used for the left one, or wrong printer settings, resulting in the low resolution, weak material, awful smell and stickiness. I already contacted Shapeways and am curious how they will react. I mean, the same item, printed at the same time in the same material should be equal in characteristics and quality, shouldn't it?
