Expectation management

Full Color Sandstone available for new uploads only
We can currently print models your models in Full Color Sandstone and Sandstone. However we have made the material available for new uploads only. To prevent disappointment we won’t make Full Color Sandstone available for the existing models in our gallery. They don’t contain color information and the guidelines for 3D modeling for Full Color 3D printing differ from the guidelines for the other range of materials we have available. We will manually check the existing gallery for models that are suitable to print in Full Color Sandstone and Sandstone. When checked the material will become available in the material selection menu on the order detail page.

Adding full color 3D printing to the WITII "What If The Impossible Isn't?" list.  

The choice of materials and colors for 3D printing is still limited, but as usual these are following the typical exponential curves upward as prices move exponentially downward.

Shapeways has added "sandstone" to their options of materials and allows for greatly expanded choices of colors in any 3D models you have them print.  Worth watching the video and browsing their site.
