Nice work team....

One thing I find missing in the 'Edit Model' option is the ability do define an editable area on the model, akin to the Light Poem.

Example: If I design a stand, I would like to be able to select an area on the model where the buyer could input their own text, or have it generate a Serial number, or a QR code based on either preset criteria (like a serial number) or buyer criteria.

If a company wants to buy the stands in bulk, but brand it for a promotional freebie, it should be easy for them to do so.

It is simplistic but it does offer the 'Creator' customisation option without the hassle of having to create an individual upload for each buyer.

You should still be able to make your model a co-creator to allow customization.

Maybe I have this wrong: I thought that through the Co-Creator the designer becomes an intermediary (hence the 'Message to the designer').

What I'm trying to say is: The ability for the designer to choose an area on the model that can be defined as customizable - From there the buyer either opts for the Text or QR code options (or the designer orders a batch with a Serial Number) and that's it. If the buyer wants 'Hi!' as their message, that's it, the designer is not involved.

I am wondering: what filters should I use to see the co-creator models that have been done (by other designers) for me? they appear in my models, right?

If you have co-creator models to complete they will show up in a long red/orange button up top that will link you to the co-creators you need to complete.

Actually I was not speaking about the ones I have *to complete*, but the one that were completed for me by another designer. These ones are also in "My Models", right?
(It is not obvious to me because, actually, I ordered some of my own models that were co-creators, and I think the customized versions still show in "My Models": I'd like to filter them in order to delete them, but i don't know how to filter...)

Looking pretty good, but can I add one more request: I'm always completely lost as to whether I'm seeing a price including VAT, or ex; and often whether it is including mark-up or not. Could you make this consistent please? Half the time I don't know anymore what the price is I'm really paying for a model.

Maybe 2 filters would be of further interest:
