Anybody have issues lately with non-public models? I've uploaded one for a client, set it to "sale" but not "public", and sent them the permalink. In response I got: "I am getting a "Sorry, you don't have permission to perform this action." message when I click on the link."

What gives? I'm sure the permalink worked before...

I checked and it still works. After setting the model to 'private' and 'for sale', access it from your gallery again and check the link - it should contain a 'key' section, like:

http://www.shapeways.com/model/1184115/my-model.html?li=mode lEdit&key=<secret key here>

Links to private models will only work if they contain this key!

Cheers,

Bart

Thanks Bart! I ended up copying the whole "WWW" address, but shouldn't the short permalink also do the job? Or is that only for "public" models? I also found it wouldn't let me save edited changes until I added a Category, but since it is a private model this just seems silly...

Still, all's well now!

Regards,
Tom

Hmm, yes I agree - the permalink should contain that information probably. I'll forward the suggestion to our team, thanks!
