    Im trying to find this information on the site, on the materials gidelines and on the tutorials but I cant find it.

    I have this model, http://www.shapeways.com/model/1143420/rikipeke02b.html very big and flat. It is inside the Bounding Box Limits. But for some reason, the moment I increase its height a little, the prize suddenly goes up extremely fast.
    For example
    http://www.shapeways.com/model/1143416/rikipeke02.html

    Both models are the same, the only difference is one little stick and suddenly the price is over 70€ more. Why does this happen? Is there a Bounding Box Limit that increases the price?

    Maybe it's down to this:

    What are the actual prices of your 2 models?
    Which material?

    Also go to the Model in Edit Mode and check out the Oriented Bounding Box data - this is what is used in the calcs.

    The spike makes your models print density lower than 10% therefore you don't get the discount.
