    I'm french so sorry for my english :)

    I have a problem with the price of my creations on shapeway: when i upload a very basic model like it:

    Your website show me a price very high: 879$ for just a ball with the size:

    Size and price of this model:
    Size Height 10.0 cm
    Width 10.0 cm
    Depth 10.0 cm

    I think that there are a problem but what? for this size, others objects are in selling 30$ on your website...

    Ok, thanks!!

    but for more complex model, there are a tool in 3dsmax to increase the smoothness?

    I don't know, I don't use 3Ds Max. May be an option in the export

    Yes, there is an option.
    It's in the modifiers. (modifier stack, usually on the right side)
    Haven't used 3DMax for a while now, but I believe they're named Subdivide and Smooth.
    Try playing around with those.

    don't use the normal smooth,
    use the turbosmooth ;)

    if you just use the smooth modifier,, it won't increase the number of poly's, but just renders it sort of so you wont see the edges really.

    don't know how to describe in english,

    but the turbosmooth will give it more polygons,, which is usefull for printing
