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
<iframe frameborder=”0″ style=’
border:1px solid #c0c0c0;
If you have trouble with the code you can also enter this url into your web browser:
and then view the source code (cmd-U in firefox, shift-cmd-U in safari, shift-cmd-V in Camino) and copy it wherever you would like to place it.
We are also looking into making it easier for you to share your favorites and shop sections with widgets, let us know if there is anything else you would like us to ‘widgetize’?
