I created a shop and uploaded 2 models. However, the models and shop don't show up in a search. Does it usually take more than 24 hours for search to work?

The direct link to my shop is http://www.shapeways.com/shops/minimadness

I've tried a bunch of key words for the models, but they never turn up in search results. Confused

Heh no worries, your confusion is understandable. I think people are usually used to uploading things and having them show up immediately on the internet (i.e. photos).

Can you think of anywhere in the process that we could have given you a friendly heads up that it takes a little while before your models show in your shop?

I think when you make a model public it should say "Models may take XX hours to appear on a search." That way you can adjust it as you change the process (say you cut the time down to 30 minutes, people who are used to waiting 4+ hours now know it's ready in 30 minutes instead).

Just a suggestion Smile
