Personally, I think it sounds good, but it may not work well for puzzles.
The email claims that the pieces are simply polished in a tumbler! I expected an advanced solvent or some other technological innovation.
If somebody could find out what "buffer" is used in the tumbler (I use ground up walnut shells for polishing my .223 cases) Then we could cheaply and easily polish WSF in a brass tumbler at home, just like they are now dyed at home, and for a much lower cost. I just wonder how much friction is reduced, and If the MECHANISM, not just the externals are greatly affected.
I hope someone can print a sample puzzle (barbell cubes?
) to test this, and maybe Oskar could try to polish up his normal WSF an compare the two (or he could send it to me if we could find out the buffer and I would do it for free
But like Sigurd said, I am VERY excited for the SHAPEWAYS FROST MATERIAL
That should be revolutionary.

I am now adding dummy cubes to my models to cross the 10% density threshold and save myself money big time.
