    Since we are speaking about the prices discount for Strong and Flexible materials, why not speaking about metal?
    The details are here.
    So for Antique Bronze Glossy or Matt, the pricing is:
    - from 0 cm³ to 1 cm³, minimum price product: $12.00
    - from 1 cm³ to 5 cm³: $10 per cm³
    - from 5 cm³ to 10 cm³: $9 per cm³
    - more than 10cm³: $8 per cm³
    For Stainless Steel instead it is a flat $10 per cm³

    This mean that for large objects like this dice set, the price is higher for regular Stainless Steel than for this same material with an additional post-production:
    Does that really make sense? Should I advise my customers to choose Antique Bronze instead of Stainless Steel to minimize their expenses?

    I think we should have the same kind of discount on Stainless Steel...
    For instance:
    - from 0 cm³ to 1 cm³: $10 per cm³ (no minimum)
    - from 1 cm³ to 5 cm³: $8 per cm³
    - from 5 cm³ to 10 cm³: $7 per cm³
    - more than 10cm³: $6 per cm³
