Ah, I forgott:

Glass and/or iron are not possible due to detail limitations.

I designed the case to fit a min. wall thickness of 0.7 mm. Glass and
iron need at least 3mm which isn't possible with this design.

I deactivated all materials at the Shapeways site which doesn't fit the
detail of the design.
