    I was wondering, would making a transparent dome be possible with shapeways? Modeling it wouldn't be an issue, but how transparent is their "transparent" material?

    For example, could I have a dome made for a clock, like this, but made out of plastic instead of glass, and still be able to clearly see the clock inside?

    Use FUD. Problem solved, keep it at about a millimetre or tw and you'll be fine.

    Also, just order a Sample Kit from Shapeways. They're $30, but come with a $25 coupon, so it's only $5 for the kit, the rest they just want you to spend on Shapeways. That will mean you don't need to ask these questions and can make up your own opinion instead of people subjectively saying what is and isn't transparent. ;)
