From a recent shapeways email about FUD:
Starting on May 22nd:
- Instead of charging just for your model's FUD material volume, the new pricing uses five factors, giving you transparency and a new level of control: Startup cost, Per Part cost, Model Material Volume, Support Material and Machine Space.
- New visualizations for Support Material and Machine Space will be available in the FUD 3D tools.
- The startup cost has dropped from $5 to to $3.50
- The Model Material going down from $3.50/cc to $0.75/cc gives you more freedom use the material you need to make the design just right.

The end-product is relatively smooth on flat and angular surfaces, but curved or rounded surfaces come out a little rough. I was a bit impatient and I wanted to see everything together so I didn't spend a ton of time sanding. I think you could end up with a better result than I did. Probably best to use something like sandpaper to sand the rounded/curved surfaces. The bits are pretty fragile, I actually broke one arm and had to order an extra set. All in all, I am very happy with the end result. I'm not finished painting this model, but you can still see what I ended up with. I definitely would recommend it to a friend. Thanks Kael'yn!

I'm looking at this and planning to build a Stormsurge to look even more like a Classic stumpy Broadsides since I have 13 of them and want to keep that aesthetic on the heavy weapons guys.
