I recently had two ring prototypes made up in the smooth white/polished material. I wanted to check the size/proportions and get an idea of how they'd look in "real life", then make up versions of each in metal after any needed changes, probably in polished stainless. Once they arrived I painted them silver. With the paint on I began to wonder if they were actually polished before being sent out, as there was some "grain" surface texture all over, and on the top and bottom and some of the angled or curved detailing there are clear irregular stepped sections visible, and some of the text and fine detail lines I have on the fronts is a bit muddled. On one of the rings that appears to be caused by me not making the text stick out enough, and I will correct it. The models seemed to look pretty smooth in the preview window, one more than the other, once they were uploaded (created in 3ds Max). I took one of the rings and worked over the surface with a Dremel and various sanding blocks then primed and repainted it, and it looks decent. I am new to this process, and would like to find out how closely the metal versions would correspond to what I received in the "polished white" material. I don't really have the facility here to do the same kind of sanding and polishing on something as hard as stainless, so would appreciate some details on how the process might differ, or if it will look exactly like the plastic versions, and if there's any recommendations for editing the models to guarantee a very smooth surface on curves or tapers. Thanks for any information, it is appreciated. It is great to have a company like yours where these things are possible, and your pricing is reasonable, I look forward to making more items.
