Hi Lukas,

I've just ordered your cover in 'Frosted Ultra Detail' and am now curious 
about the result and will of course report.
Shapeways does a nice job because the price is really reasonable low and I 
long time tracked the possibility of 3D printing. Modifying the CAD files 
really could help, since the original ones obviously don't print, but any 
lightweighter solution would help as well.
