    Hi :)
    Is there a max number of polys per model for upload to print?
    I'm creating a piece in zbrush, and its pushing 4 million polys.
    Thanks in advance!

    thanks, i'll try that out.
    but i don't understand:

    "the volume of the cube needs to be the same actual material volume, no bounding box."

    what does that mean?

    Yes, you still see this on the upload screen. There have been sporadic reports suggesting that this is not a hard limit as far as the site software is concerned - but consider (a) automatic fixing may need to create additional triangles (b) automatic tests may time out if the file is too big (c) in the end it probably depends on which material you want to use - each printer and associated software will have its own limitations. (My wild guess is that the "sandstone" printer would be the first to drop off the list as it has the additional burden of color information.)

    thanks a lot! you clarify me all the doubts ;) but not agree at all that is a good limit. Two million would be more close to perfection ;)
