    We know that WSF's porous nature makes it a little finicky when it comes to painting your models. Primer coats are a must, and many shapers have also suggested applying a sealant, such as floor wax to make the outside watertight.

    So I'm wondering, would it be reasonable for shapeways to offer primered or sealed WSF models so that painters can skip that step? I feel like Shapeways' factory of the future should have access to more advanced materials and techniques than a lone hobbyist such as myself would, or at least be able to provide the outer coating at a cheaper rate due to economies of scale.
