Hello. I couldn't find anything in the fine print regarding confidentiality in both the quoting and the printing process. Can I safely assume that by uploading a model to you guys that it will be kept secret? Thanks,

Chris

When you upload there is a drop down box where you can set your model to private so only you see what it is, how much it costs and all that.

So just to be clear, if I upload a patentable design and have it printed can I expect confidentiality from Shapeways employees as well who are involved in the printing process? Thanks.
