Someone asked me to print a logo...
They wanted a black circle with their logo in white in it.
Anyone any suggestions about how I should upload this file?
Is it enough when my 3Dmodel is black and white or are there any requirements?

Hello Gijsbrecht, welcome to the forum!

Printing in multiple colors is (as far as I know) only possible in colored sandstone.

You should upload a .Zip file containing the .vrml file ( 3d model) and a .png or .jpeg file (texture map)

Both are explained on the site, please visit these links.

Good luck!
