Unsure if this is the right topic thread to be posting this, so if not feel free to move it.  A friend of mine and I are trying to create our own keshi's, and we're using lo poly video game models as tests before we make our own characters.  Right now we're able to print the blank 3D model, but no textures on it. (the details, like face, armor, etc) . Is this possible to do?  We don't care if it doesn't have color.  If the textures can't print on a model, we'll have to make them ourselves, but it becomes far easier if we can print it all in one go in order to make molds for keshi's.

If you print one in color, say via Shapeways, the textures should show.

 

But since gaming skins/textures are actually flat, they will not show on a monchrome print.

The 3D printing program my friend and I use is Mastercam.  Shapeways is a printing program too right?
