I tried to find a topic about this, but I couldn't, so I apologize if this has been covered before. Everyone else seems to get their shapeways pieces and magically produce a dyed, assembled, stickered, and functioning puzzle without any problems. I have just received my first shapeways puzzle in the mail today (Garrett's 2x3x4
), and I have a few questions that may seem a bit silly
How strong are the pieces? I know it says "white strong and flexible", but how strong and how flexible is that? I'd rather not break anything.
I'v heard that stickers don't stay on shapeways puzzles well. Should I use a drop of glue, or is there a better way?
How durable are shapeways puzzles? Is it safe to use lube on them?
Is there anything else I should know before I jump in and try to make this thing work? Again, I apologize if the questions seem basic, I'm sure this stuff is common knowledge for everyone else around here, but I'v never tried a shapeways puzzle before, and I'd like to make sure I do it right so I end up with a nice puzzle
