In addition to checking out the "Art-To-Part" 3D printing services that Proton has been showing samples of, I found two additional 3D printers:

http://www.key3d.com

http://www.3dtolife.com

These web sites weren't that great and it appeared their costs were significantly higher than what "Art-To-Part" has posted on their web site. On of them did offer different materials which could help produce higher-res/ higher detailed models.

My only hang-up with the samples Proton has shown is the granularity of the models. I still think these will look good on top of a bookshlef.

I'm think about trying a bas relief / wall hanging sculpture.

Look forward to seeing Proton's models painted!

I've worked with these guys before and they are terrific. The site has some info on what materials they use and more specifics etc.

I thought the Z-Corps looked like the most professional outfit, however, their web site made it seem to me that they only sold the 3D printers.

Where do you find out about their printing services for those of us who will never be able to buy a $30K 3D printer?

from my research 3darttopart was the best quality/price point I could find. I'm very happy with the 2 that I have had done will will continue to add to my toy collection!
