• Model for a very important 2003 project of mine (right after my hip replacement operation on St. Valentine's Day, I could certainly use some extra good circulation in my lower legs :) • This scaled down (to 30%) model is just for preliminary testing on the clearance of the spindle; just to make sure it will not fuse when I order this model in its actual size (24.8cm x 10.7cm x 10.7cm); I intend to order it in Gold Plated Stainless Steel ($10 per mm3, till May 30 only!); if you think I'm crazy you're ignoring the fact that my model is completely hollow! With a 3mm wall thickness (the strongly recommended minimum wall thickness for Stainless Steel) my actual sized model – even though it looks extremely massive to your naked eye — has a mere volume of only 129458.02 mm³ (cubic millimeters); and that translate roughly to only 129.458 cm³; now, at $10 per cm³ think of the considerable savings I am going to make to make if I can complete my preliminary testing and beat the May 30 availability deadline! (besides the little known fact that I've been born with a gold plated silver spoon in my mouth, when it comes to my health, nothing, but absolutely nothing, is too expensive for me! :) • BTW, it would be nice if Shapeways would also make available a few expensive exotic woods on their material list (see descriptions pics), wouldn't it? :)
