Well not exactly new I've been lurking for quite a while. Even though I'm really exited by the possibilities of 3d printing I'm finding really hard to get started. even the most basic shapes I seem to struggle to get anywhere with. Anyway after much googleing and youtubing I have a simple hollow dome completed. It's about 20cm Dia and 10Cm high but it's coming in at $429 in strong and flexible! Have I messed up somewhere or is this what it really costs? http://www.shapeways.com/model/856512/dome.html?li=productBo x-search I have made it public I hope you can see it.
