A lot of customers want me to make them toy versions of the 3d models I make. Due to the frequency of that request, I want to start "Getting my ducks in a row". Last experience; I created a shapeways compatible model, price came out to 108$ for prototype. Well and good. Customer called another company who says they prefer to start with a clay figure and create molds based on that. So my million dollar question: In extending my 3d services to include toys, which connections should I have? What homework should I be doing right now? Obviously shapeways is only a prototyping solution, so I'd like to know what you professionals do. Thanks a lot! I love this place .
