Hey Alan,

How about an encrypted, fast loading, Flash 3D full color viewer for our models?
(i've been nagging about this for ages... shapeways needs to lead on this)

oh and Welcome ;-)

We are working on a highly available viewer that is available to all web clients. Likely this will be through a series of fallbacks, ie test for WebGL, test for Flash... else fallback to images. Its on my radar, will get you expected dates when I know them.

Your dice rock btw, my gamer friends are blown away.
