    I notice that in the description of stainless steal, it says that enterlocking parts are a no-go. Why is this? What if it's something as simple as 3 circles passing through each other to form a borromean ring?
    Thanks :D

    I remember the good old times...

    Moving parts are no mre alowed in Stainles Steel. I guess it was difficult to maintain the different part at the right distance during the bronze infusion, and thus this was not cost effective for Shapeeways.
    I would be ready to pay the handling fee per moving part instead of per model if this was restored back...
