Takes more work to finish. But the detail level is decent. Not as good as FUD but good. It is a much sturdier material though which helps make up for it.here is a comparison shot using my Z-95   3z_zpslqgghr5e.jpg

How good is the detail for this 3D print material? Does it compare to Ultra Frosted?

Pop on over to pages 3/4/5 of the Mel's miniatures thread also, we've got some good photos there too of stuff we've recently ordered.

So, from what I've been able to gather:  FUD for ships, BHDA for squadrons?

FUD for squadrons, BHDA for "small" ships up to a certain point (i've had a few with no issues), FUD for big ships unless you're willing to give up some detail/do extra work.

Is that because FUD gets better fine details, or some other reason?

De jour printing material for one (I've not seen anyone at all using BHDA for squadrons) - I'd expect there's a technical reason for this, possibly a the minimums for BHDA are higher than for FUD?  Mel'd be able to explain the rationale better than I.

BHDA for squadrons is no good. Shapeways charges a minimum for EACH miniature in WSF and BHDA. On the other hand, you can make groups in FUD without extra charge.

Does the same hold true if you join the pegs via a sprue?
