Need 3d printing service at hight resolution

Hi to all.
I need a 3d printing service at hight resolution. I must print some character but the measure is very little, about 3 cm from foot to eyes line, also the models have very little details, (from cad measure the little detail is about 0.20 mm). So I need some machine at high resolution. Does Anyone know some company with work with these requisite?

These guys are specialized in character prints:
Their site contains little information, but it's probably worth a shot to email them.

Otherwise, shapeways offers a UV cured option that can resolve very fine details:
This should take less than a few minutes.

thanks for your reply, the first one (ownage) seems actualy moved from the old site.

Shapeways... I think is the most famous 3d printing servince, but I have doubts about detail quality ( I see they are more concetrated onto simple shape)

Shapeways has quality issues, the printer they use is really good but they often end up with errors that lead to poor print quality.

Materialise, best we've tried of a bunch. (b2b) (consumer)
I've got a mind like a carcrash...there's bits and pieces all over the place.

Thanks to all guys.

i-materialise is now under work, so cannot see or contact

about shapeways, the sorface of their products seem bad, not so smooth like I need.

Here an example of miniature prototyped in 3d:

What you want is a 3D Printer aimed at "Jewelry Design" or "Dental/Hearing Aid Design". Those tend to have the highest resolution.

Maybe you should identify 3D Printers that fit your resolution/quality requirement. Like this one from Zcorp:

or Objet:


Then find a 3D Printing Service that uses those printers.

In particular, Google for 3D Printers aimed specifically at "Jewelry Design". Those have the highest small-detail capability.

In other words, Google for things like "3D Printer Jewelry", and you'll find machines with the highest micro-detail capability for making small, yet highly detailed objects.

Then all you have to do is find a 3D Printing shop that has those machines...

Hope this helps...

Your 3d print sample pic looks like it was printed with a Envisiontec printer.
