    I always had a thing for 3D logos, and I didn't see anyone else offering them, so if anyone's interested I have these available on Shapeways. Hope you like them, they're my first attempt at a custom part. I made one in the White and Flexible, the other in the ultra detail so you can see the difference.

    Working on Different sizes, and I've got an Autobot one finished, but I want to order it and see it before I let others buy it. What worked out really well was using the Frosted Ultra Detail, painting one side (nothing more fancy than Testors), then super-gluing it paint side down so that the color was seen through the frosted clear plastic.

    Coming from you, that's a big complement :)  I agree with the texture, I was only really happy with the ultra detail material.

    Perhaps the logos are too small, but Shapeways offers a polishing service for WSF that might make it a lot better.

    It's charged like a material and I think it's $.50 to $.75 more expensive per CM^3.

    For each Constructicon. You get Heavy Labor yet? one for him would be great. Then, as they come out, one for the rest.

    I think something similar in size to the Autobot logo on MP-01 would be nice. That way for that Nemesis Prime repaint people could remove his Autobot Logo and turn him into a Decepticon.
