Congratulations for your site!

I note that several designers publish the same model in different sizes (and... price ^^). What would you think of a feature that allows the buyer to resize a model when ordering ?

One could imagine that the designer defines the acceptable size bounds, between which the buyer could choose.

Hi LeWiZ,

we're preparing such a feature at this moment. I'm not sure what the ETA on that is, so keep your eyes on our blog!

I second this suggestion. It would be nice to have a more flexible scaling solution (scale this item with factor x).

The problem with this feature, would show itself when the consumer orders an item smaller than it was intended. If an item has details that are optimum at one scale, and it is printed smaller, the details and functionality of the object can easily be lost.

I think, if buyers are given the option to resize products, the seller should have the ability to turn off this option on a per-product basis. This will leave the ability to resize at the discretion of the seller, and avoid product mishaps that would upset the buyer.
