Hey Shapeways, As always, I've been trying to look into middle grounds between plastic and stainless steel. Here's another suggestion: metal-plated plastic. Now, I'm not aware of the material properties, so this may not work, but would it be possible to offer a White Strong & Flexible Plastic that is dipped in Stainless Steel, Gold, or Bronze - similar to how you coat Stainless Steel with Bronze and Gold? That way, one could achieve the nice finish of a metal product without as much expense - and depending on the process, one could even print interlocking multiple parts that way, which would be a great step up from the current Stainless Steel. Thoughts?
