being able to select which items would show up in the widget, instead of just ALL of them together would be very useful.

Thanks Todd,

We do have an option to share your favorites which could help with that but it is not quite stable.
Keep an eye on this blog post and we may have a fix in the next couple of days.

A shop sections option is also in planning. this would be perfect to select which items you would like to show.

This is great, and good to read a shop section option is in the planning too... all good stuff.

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.

also, the page numbers don't make sense in the widget form, sense you're scrolling thru one at a time you can't tell any separation from page 1 to 2

Hey Jeff,
thanks, they make sense if you use the outside arrows, and also work when you use the vertical version of the widget (oops),
The soon to be released vertical version :-)

ah, a vertical widget would find its fit much nicer on my site. thanks for the slip.

I just dropped it into my website, and it looks pretty good!!!

I think it would be cool to change the number of models displayed (and which ones) vertically and horizontally. And maybe some tabs that go through the shop sections or something like that.

Jake, great idea to use tabs for sections! Lets see if we can hack that in...

I just Widgetized my Shapeways favorites, but must say.. I prefer a black Widget @

Hi, try adding &style=dark to your code ;-)

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: It would be much nicer if I could set it to display four or so rows so that it would fill the entire page.

Here is my widget (at the bottom):

eyephoriadesign DOT com SLASH buy_art DOT html

Stupid spam filter keeps blocking my post.
I chose the dark option. :-P

Looks good, but, ahem, it is below the Etsy widget.... :-)
