Default Re: Sword of Omens for 3D Printer WIP

Shapeways asks, when uploading obj files at least, whether the dimensions are millimeters, inches or meters. So you have some options.

They made a suggestion to use flat-shading while modeling, more polygons are better. I think they have a million polygon limit per file.

Fine detail may be lost, the one plastic model I've done was pretty rough. So were the two rings I ordered in "gold steel". The ring I did in gold plated brass was very smooth, though.
