So with rings being so popular I was wondering how high up on the "To Do List" is the idea of having Multiple sized files under one shop item?


For example. You make a ring in 12 different sizes and right now you have two options, option 1 is to have it as a co-creator and upload the right file everytime someone orders it, and then option 2 is to upload all 12 different files cluttering up your shop with repeating images.

what i would LOVE to see is the ability to have multiple versions available under one item. Just having each person select one of the avalible options or if they want multiple copies but in different sizes then an extra drop down for each copy they wanted.

This idea is to help with the flow of the shops and to help clean up clutter, making it easier for everyone in the end.

So. Is this concept high up on the "To Do List"? or is it fairly low?

Thanks for your time!

Bumping this back up since this is something I'd like to see, too. Good idea.

I work here
Currently, a hack is possible with the Labs feature:
http://www.shapeways.com/labs

If you use the Create Variants tool, you can add multiple ring sizes to your shop.

As for a longer term solution, I will add it to the Shops Features request!

I think I will finally try this tool. If we just want one item visible in the store how to we set properties on the other sized items? Do you set them as "Offer for sale to others" but not "Display to the public"?

Ok, I got that to work BUT I think found a new bug.

As far as I can tell if you use the Variant tool the default material for the model will be set in the cart. There is no pull down from the variant tool generated code to select a material option. In addition, you can't change the material option once the model has been added to the cart. When did that cart capability go away? So it would seem the variant tool is only good for a model offered in one material variant, which is rather ironic.

How do you access the Create Variants tool?

I realize this is an old thread, is there a way now to do it?

I am trying to show a ring and have multiple sizes to click on within the description of the model.

Is this possible?

Thanks

This is an old thread, but the link in it (above) is still valid.
