Hi all,

I am newbie to Shapeways API. Actually what I want to do is to use ShapeWays API in my own website, which is also a scanned model sharing site.
I am willing how could I use APIs to upload models , and to interactive viewing of the model on the site, using mouse operations.

Thank you for your help to point me to a right direction.

Best regards

Have a look at the http://developers.shapeways.com/getting-started?li=dh_gs page; first register your website as a Shapeways Application at http://developers.shapeways.com/manage-apps and then I suggest you have a look at the API reference clients and example code on Github at https://github.com/Shapeways/shapeways-api , the php-pecl examples are the most complete. It includes a model upload demo.

Hi Hans ,

thank you for your reply.

I have browsed the tutorial page and the example page.
I have one question about the pricing process. because i noticed that in the API documentation,

POST /price/v1
Parameters
volume float required Model volume (cubic meters, use 0.000001 for cm^3)

so, my question is that: if I have uploaded a model and call the server of shapeways to get the volume of my model.
Could I do this ? does shapeways API supports this function ? or volume is a parameter.

thank you

regards
