Have you cleaned the model by yourself?
If I can ask you: how much does it cost?
There is some mistakes with the base of the model, near the feet, the corrispondence with the Zbrush Model is missing, isn't it? But it's s a small detail...
Anyway did you think to paint it?
Love the result. The concept is excellent as well.
nice model looks great, can u tell me what was the polycount of final mesh, file size, and file format
Try cluster or quadric edge collapse decimation in MeshLab. I don't think you'll have any luck getting anywhere near 10MB though, especially if you're trying to keep pore texture at the geometric level.
Rapid Prototype Info
The poly count was about 650,000 polys.
He was 45mb and I sent them an OBJ file.
I thought I needed to send a super-high density mesh.
But this is not the case. Especially when he is only 5 inches tall.
The price of a print is dependant on a number of things.
The only real way to know is to send in an obj/stl file for a price quote.
The material is VERY strong. I could have it painted or mold/cast it into a bunch of copies if I wanted. I used to be a toy sculptor and I'm re-inspired by the quality of this print.
thanks for the in dude great work again
Wow, great looking 3D print... it's gottta be cool to actually hold your virtual creation.
Keep up the great work!

Get a 3D Print Half Price
Hello all. It's great to read all the positive comments about the 3D Prints. Here at GROWit, we're preparing for Siggraph next week. If you submit two models by midnight (PST), August 7th, we'll give you the second model half price! Just mention the Siggraph promotion – by doing so you’re giving us permission to display both of your models, and we’ll ship them immediately following the show.
The half price model will be the smaller of the two, and must be less than 5 inches tall. Remember, all models need to be submitted by midnight (PST), August 7th.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the files and Michael or David will reply with a price.
wow, mouthofwar, the printed model looks pretty cool.
great job by GROWit.
the material has a nice surface too.
like madmatt i asked myself if it was cleaned after the printing somehow
(something similar like cleaning a bigger piece of work with sandblaster)
im searchin for a similar company for producing some extraordinary merch, but its hard to find in germany.
and thx for the thread and all great posts. great info boost at all.
clients from abroad
Hi zhaxen. At GROWit we work with clients from Europe all the time. It takes a couple extra days to get to Germany, but otherwise es ist kein Problem.
Also, thanks to all who submitted files for Siggraph! The show was terrific!
oh thats great news.
i took a look on your website and then took a look on objets site as well and
just watched their demo.
pretty impressive both.
the connex500 is monster.
maybe we get in contact in near future.
we were at the GamesConvention2008 Leipzig with our EACT and i saw
the MuckleMannequin Booth, but when i think of would be possible when
that technology will be able to print out bigger works...oh dear^^.

Hi, can anyone give any advise on how to combine subtools into one solid watertight mesh? Or is it ok to have a model that is composed of overlapping geometry which has been the result of mesh inserting subtools to create a single obj? I'm trying to sort some models out, so I can have them rapid prototyped. Any info would be greatly aprieciated
Most 3D printers have no problems with models made from intersecting meshes. Just make sure each mesh is watertight, and is clean of non-manifold edges, and other junk.
It would be good to get an answer or a link about how exactly to merge multiple subtools.
I know you can always retopologize multiple subtools... but is there a way to join/ weld multiple subtools without retopologizing and get them ready for 3D printing? Could a program like Modo help with this?
Any adivce would be greatly appreciated.
