We have been looking for ways to help the Shapeways community get their designs out into the wild and have got a few exciting projects on the boil. One that we need you to help us test is the Shapeways Widget that allows you to embed your Shapeways shop into other sites using a HTML snippet.
This widget is still in the testing stage and we would really like to get your feedback on how it works, if you run into any problems and if you would like to see any more details or options. Also feel free to send us links of where you use the widget so we can get an idea of the context in which you use the widget.
To Widgetize your shop (in BETA) you will need to use the following HTML
Great addition shapeways!
I resized it a bit- when i inserted it in my site the vertical dim of 182 px was too small, it created a vertical scroll bar, so i increased this to 200 px to get it to full size. However, horizontally my site is set up w/ 500 px wide columns so I had to resize the width to match this. So now you have a horizontal scroll to see everything, then you click next to see even more - not the ideal setup.
So i'd like to be able to resize the widget w/o the scroll bars, just show less models on the 1st page, is that possible? click my homepage to see the widget on my site.
I like it, but I would prefer the option of being able to set a number of rows to be shown. Right now, there's a pretty big void in my shop page: http://tomvanderzanden.nl/shop.php It would be much nicer if I could set it to display four or so rows so that it would fill the entire page.
