Hi all,

with the new kind of full color sandstone I'ld like to test it with items available in the shops here.

BUT: How can I search for colored items, without being forced to browse through thousands of files?

I can't find a way to specify my search to "full colored" only...

Please help!

Initially there was a filter by material in the Product Gallery (Gallery>Products>Materials), but it is broken for ages.
Sad

This should work one day:

So many things to design, so little time...

Hmm, it seems there currently is no real handy option to do so..

Perhaps someone else knows a better way, but for now try this :
http://www.shapeways.com/gallery?mg%5bsearch%5d%5bcategories %5d=&mg%5bsearch%5d%5btext%5d=Full+Color



My first instinct was to recommend
http://www.shapeways.com/gallery?mg%5Bsearch%5D%5Bmaterial_i d%5D=26

But that shows all models that have full color sandstone enabled, which are a lot of non-color models..

There used to be a full color theme here:
http://www.shapeways.com/themes/full_color

With a link to
http://www.shapeways.com/gallery?category=Full+Color

But both show nothing..

All those searches are only showing 4 models.

But I know for sure that there are a LOT more (especially a nifty alien figure) due to my searches a few weeks ago.

That is really sad: Now that the material is perfect you can't find models for it... Confused

I work here
If you go into the categories you can sort by material, but sandstone isn't listed as one of them... Add it to the update list if it's not already there.
