Introducing Ben: Product Lead at Shapeways


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

Welcome Ben and Good Luck ! ;-)

You've got yourself a very cool job at a very cool company.

If i may, focus if possible on developing fast color viewer for the 3D models in Flash - i truly believe customers will better evaluate a model this way rotating it in all directions etc as its the closest thing to holding it in your hand.

I have close to 300 models on Shapeways.. i cant order them all and shoot a video.. :-D

Thanks for the well-wishes and the suggestions. I know I'm very lucky to be here and I'm going to do everything I can to serve the needs of the Shapeways community and help us to keep growing.

I'm concerned about Flash as a web technology for several reasons, but I like the idea of a better 3D viewer, and it is something I'm currently working on. I'm leaning toward a javascript implementation right now, due to better support on more platforms (iPhone and iPad, especially). You are totally right about the need to get this perfect for designers and customers--so please keep the feedback coming!
