hey guys,

I've tried to upload a model for like 25 times now, and still get the same error.
As I have no experience with full color sandstone, i would like to ask if anybody sees what is going on with this file.

The model is really simple and contains 3 textures.
I can't seem to find out why it's missing something,, all 3 are included.

in addition i have attached the 3ds max 2011 model as well.

I really really hope that somebody spots the error!

thanks in advance.

The textures need to be combined. Shapeways only accepts 1 texture for color prints.

Hope that helps.

Thanks!
I'll have a try at this tonight!

this means i can't make a multi/sub object texture?
not sure how i'm going to do that Razz i really suck in even the simplest models with textures Smile



btw: this is what the tutorial page says:
You can use more than one texture map on your object, but the maps are not allowed to overlap – the printer cannot figure out which texture to print in that case.

Ah, maybe the texturing depends on your design software. For me to use Sketchup for making color 3D prints, all the textures need to be combined into one.

Anyone with 3D Max experience that can jump in here?
