Hello!
I have been trying to upload a model with a texture map to shapeways to test the colored sandstone but it refuses to recognize my bitmap.
I am exporting it to an x3d, my texture is a jpg (i also tried bmp)

I put the files in my root c drive to make sure, but no matter what i get this:

Advanced Printability Failure Message:
It seems your product is missing the textures it needs to be 3D printed. Please check the uploaded file to make sure the texture is in the root directory (we don't support textures in subfolders).
Texture file not found: outlaw_texture.jpg.

I have attached the texture and file, can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong?
Thanks so much!

Open the .x3d file in a text editor - right at the top is your ImageTexture declaration, and it now reads
"Texture/outlaw_texture.jpg" instead of just "outlaw_texture.jpg".

Here is a tutorial I made to get a color file from Sketchup to shapeways using Blender to convert the file. Perhaps it will be of assistance?
