Thanx for the tip! That is the weirdest bug ever sometimes it just takes links and instead of making them go to the site it abbreviates them and makes them go to the blog.
So the correct link:
becomes: which results in a 404.

The lead-in to your contest says "It’s simple, you design and offer your Co-Creation template"
Okay, but I can find NOWHERE hear as to where to upload this 'template' to, what format it is supposed to be in, etc. Do I have to upload a model and link it to the template, if I do so then surely that entry would then be visible to everyone?

Am I missing seeing a link somewhere? You tell us what you want but not how to complete the entry. I have been going round and round this site trying to find something that doesn't seem to exist (much as I seem to be doing in life!)

Good point Glenn,

Pretty sure it's not you ;-)
I'll come back to that later with the solution.

Sorry for leaving this "small detail" out ;-)

Glad to hear it's not me. I hate it when I start doubting my own mental faculties!

The model can be uploaded as a regular model on Shapeways. You then can turn that model into a co-creator template like this:

The sketch sheet or paper that people can use to draw on can be posted anywhere and you can then link to it in the comments of the model. As here: You can come up with your own sketch sheet but do remember the scale.

Have I answered your question? I'm a bit confused too.

my canvas wrap model cost $23.60, but the maximum volume pushes the cost up to $56.50. model here:

the price range for the competition is $25-$60, does my model meet the requirements? or do i need to add material to it to push the base price up to $25?

Good question, Jeff Bare, which raises a similar question: Why bother to have a monetary limit anyway? And what good does it do when there are different prices for different materials? A $25 model in WSF would be way over $60 in Stainless Steel, and the contest doesn't state what material those prices are for anyway...
