Greg, I'm probably wrong but Shapeways No2, your printer No.4.

The items I recently purcheased had so many print "lines" on them I couldn't do anthing with them, not even able to shade around the raised detail to produce something acceptable.


Greg Hile

Yeah, that's not good. Actually the Shapeways print was No. 1 and mine was No. 2. 3 and 4 came from the Lafayette and Walnut Creek branches of the Contra Costa County Libranch, respectively, and, quite frankly, since I model outdoor railroads at the turn of the century era and am also subject to the 10-foot rule, all of them are pretty much acceptable at that distance.
