Having problems with the PS model:
Dragging to PS icon on Mac fails to open due to unknow developer, have to use file open.
After painting on model there is no way to get it out of PS. Print appears disabled for the model, so I cannot export stl fro 3D printing. Export 3d Layer as STL dropps the Diffuse texture so no paint is on the exported model.

Oh no, There is a 3D print option in the 3D drop down menu, it should export the zipped VRML from there.

Printing just gives a blob shape. Does the model have printing restricted in some manner?
See for what is printed.

OK, it appears that the file opened with the model being really tiny ( 2.78 x 3 x 1 mm), after scaling to a larger size I was able to print a non-blob version. (

Any guidance to model size that you are expecting?

Very exciting contest ! I am participating.

However I have two questions :

- For the Ultimate design, can we use an assembly of differents Strong&Flexibe finishes ( I mean colors), or just the WSF Material ?

- For the 3D Coloring Award, is it allowed to participate with any Full Color Sandstone printable design, provided that it is painted with Photoshop CC ?

Thanks !

I uploaded a illustration with the tag #3DPS for the contest. I received a mail that's it's still in my shopping cart and I have to pay for it.
Is this correct or do I have to upload it somewhere else special for this contest?
Please let me know,

What's the time scale to let people know if their work was selected for the show, will one receive an email notification, if selected?
