We deployed an update this afternoon (US East Coast time) that implements some user experience improvements including the following:

- Updated the My Shapeways "my account" /me page, which is the first stage of our My Shapeways design overhaul. We changed it to be easier to use and more attractive.
- Removed the country select box which appeared on every page at the top. We now guess your country by your IP address, though you can still change it easily.
- Other small changes and minor tweaks.

I hope you like it!
-Ben

How could I forget--we also modified the "Add to Cart" button so that you can click it and add a product to your shopping cart, without leaving the current page. Your cart info in the header will be updated to show the number of items in the cart, and we added the same text directly beneath the button, to make it more visible.

Great!

Can you check what happened to the product inventory page, it is still broken:

We released another update today that should address that problem. Looking at your post's timestamp, I think the release came afterward. Can you check again to see if the problem persists?

Yes this was before Barry posted about the fix.

So it's working again, thanks!

"Add to Cart" button
Would have liked that but you once more leave the overview page (now going to the item) thus breaking the buying work flow from the top gallery.
Woody64 Sad

In German I now would say "Seufz, that can't be so difficult .... "
Even if I stress this point once more, please do the following.
Order 15 different items from your gallery in 15 different materials count the number of useless clicks and time consumed with reloads and page transmits you are not interested to see. Even as shop owner interested in buying my test samples I get a gray beard doing that.

Hey Woody,

Good point! I have noted it and will plan to address your use case in an upcoming design fix shortly.

Thanks for the feedback.
